McCaw looks like he has been sneaking Growden's pies and Weepu's KFC. He could certainly do with a gallop.
If I see one more person tip the current Reds side over the Crusaders, I'm going to flip out. I accept people saying that they have bias so are tipping their team, but to say Reds are going to win is outrageous when factoring squads and form. Few hard truths:
1. At the Reds best, they were only just to beat the Crusaders
2. Crusaders are at home
3. Reds are playing terrible. You beat the blues. Does that seriously give you hope? (PS. The Rebels also beat the blues...)
4. The tahs are better than the reds, and they still stuggled against the crusaders.
5. If Fruean was out - crusaders still win by 7+ - Sorry
I'm tipping Reds don't even get a bonus point.
I think this is the type of remark that should be censured on this forum, even though it might be meant in jest.With QC out, who's going to step up and knee McCaw in the head?
What a load of rot. The Tahs defence on Fruean, on 3 specific occasions, was awful. In most other aspects of the game they matched the Crusaders. Or are you suggesting the Crusaders were also awful?Tahs were awful and Fruen was sublime last week.
The reds are a different team with Digby, Saia and AFinger.
It certainly will be interesting.
