One thing Twiggy has taught us is marketing helps pull crowds.


More correctly: One thing Twiggyball has taught us all, is that the half-life of radium-226 cannot outlast how long the average Sand Groper will hold a grudge against those "over east" who done them wrong.

Hate is a brilliant fuel for showing arrogant bastards t'other side of the Nullabor what they're missing out on.

It would depend on whether you actually process what your eyeball sees.
The Tahs have the 5th best defence in the comp by points conceded, only 9 more than the 4th best; the 5th best in terms of Points Differential as well. Both of which would be above average. Like most teams, they have had matches when they have lapsed a bit defensively, but it's hard to see any evidence for the Reds having a better defence. Of course you take out their 2 worst performances, like you did for the Reds, and they would be even better.
See what I did there?
I thought you were going to say depends on what colour glasses you wear..

I would say the Brumbies defence has been horrid but looks like the best in on

There should be a rule whereby a post that receives more than 4 likes when quoting another must be replied to by the quotee before they can comment anywhere else.

It infuriates me that zero_cool can just spout nonsense, and then seemingly never reply to the posts that actually call him out on it.

I'd love to see him reply, at least just once.

"Yeah, look Cyclopath, to be honest, sometimes even I get blown away by the amount of Reds mania that I spurt. It's just that living north of the border doesn't give you many opportunities to enjoy yourself, you know? To express yourself. To grow. I'm working on it, but I can't promise that it'll get better overnight. It'll be a bit of a journey but I. I, uh .. I want to be a better poster."

I was expecting Lukhan Tui to be named somewhere.

Assuming he got through the Souths v UQ game OK ?
(He must have to be named in the Wallaby squad)

good point. Tough competition for spots and I guess the powers that be wanted to see him get confirmed minutes in club land rather than just 20 or so from the bench?

Good to see at least ONE province happy to work in the Wallaby's interests.

Hmmm, I sense a pasting coming on. The Red stars are aligned.

Haven't the Comreds already claimed the underdog status?? If not in actual writing somewhere in this thread, it is bestowed automatically upon us by history surely?

It is the Comreds I fear that are in trouble on Saturday night from the mighty Tah.

Gee - big Call not to start Timu in this one. I like ASY, but I like Timu betterer.

Otherwise I’ve got to see I am very happy with that team.

No comment on the Sorovi, Stewart, Paia'aua axis?!

I really like this backline, bar Ngamanu on the bench basically our ideal side!
