Wow, that's a big change. How long since Hooper has missed a match. Can't remember, personally. Any idea what the problem is?

The time has come for an Aussie team to stand up. So far this season everything has turned to shit, rusted on fans are depressed, less strongly attached fans are disappearing, the press are burying us, the opposition are mouthing things about tough opposition that you can see they don't believe, even the players look like they don't expect to win.

Last year wasn't brilliant, but the Brumbies started with some pretty good wins, the Rebels pulled off a couple of surprises, and as the season wore on the Tahs started to loo competitive. This year, five rounds (plus 1 game) in and absolutely nothing.

The Tahs can change all that tonight. Someone needs to be saying to them, guys, this is more than this round, this is about starting the turn off the bottom for Aus rugby. It's gotta come from somewhere, why not tonight!!

Very big ask for the Tahs with a new 10 and Hooper not taking the field.

Add to that the overall form of some of the big names and the confidence the Saders have.

Great offload from Crotty in midfield, quick hands from Havili & he puts Bridge away for the opening try. Unconverted, CruSadists 5-0.

Crotty leaving the field.

Oh dear, another lineout & 'tahs D get it horribly wrong, Havili goes between Hooper & Latu to score under the sticks. CruSadists 12-0. Requesting urgent ToPK status report!

Tolu Latu has had a very poor start to this game, conceded two penalties and a poor miss leading to a 'Saders try.
