    Brumbies vs Blues, Sat May 21, 2022, Canberra

    By geebus, *you're* hard of understanding. You just quoted me saying it's a defensive tactic they use across multiple games.

    Brumbies vs Blues, Sat May 21, 2022, Canberra

    I'm contending that the Brumbies cynical defensive tactics benefit from inconsistent or poor refereeing more often than not. This was one of the "not" occasions. (I.e. the referee had impact). IMHO, an infringement within the 22 whilst under penalty advantage should be an automatic yellow...

    Brumbies vs Blues, Sat May 21, 2022, Canberra

    I've only watched the highlights package so far... This post makes me now want to watch it reeeaaaalll close. I'll be interested to see just how many penalty advantages there were during the game and how many points were scored whilst under penalty advantage or yellow cards. The highlights...

    Brumbies vs Blues, Sat May 21, 2022, Canberra

    I didn't get a chance to watch the game last night - Blues managed to score an easy try off the scrum while the brumbies looked to be a player or two down. What was the yellow card for?

    Thorn did not have immediate success that waned over time like your examples. Your examples are the antithesis of the current situation.

    Changing coaches won't achieve anything. Thorn took the Reds from consistently losing to every single side to consistently beating every Australian side. That's pretty good considering the limits imposed upon his coaching.

    Blues vs Reds, Sat 14 May, 2022. Eden Park.

    That is what I am talking about though. I think I am just using a different definition for fundamentals: There's clearly enough *ability* in our players, but they do not have adequate training to develop the fundamental skills to be able to execute effectively. Passing. Kicking. Rucking. A...

    Blues vs Reds, Sat 14 May, 2022. Eden Park.

    My take is that Thorn has been trying to get the reds to play a more New Zealand game style of rugby which for the past 3 years has done pretty well against other Australian sides. The problem is that the fundamentals of the players skills are not there so when it comes to playing against the...

    Much as I think JOC (James O'Connor) will have a positive impact on the Reds performance, I'm gonna stay with my scoreline coz I think the rest of the fundamentals are just not there ATM. But by geebus, I sincerely hope we turn it around.

    We will lose to Pacifika as well. There is nothing to suggest we will beat them at the moment.
