I love how Ian smith points out it was the reserves that missed the tackles on banks... just acknowledge it was a good try without qualifying it
Ennor is either insanely rusty, still injured or has completely forgotten how to play rugby. He was terrrrrible.
Good old Cantabs hometown officiating crew got them home, what the FUCK was that penalty Doleman made up for his boys.
Gave up on the scrum resets so did the dishes, read a book, walked the dog, hung up the laundry, walked down to the shops, split the atom, realised I don't have a dog, extradited the plaintiff, read another whole book, put away the washing which was dry by now and sat down to the rugby again and they were STILL trying to pack down that f***king scrum.
Refereeing of the scrums was really poor. Crusaders shoved early every time and Williams did nothing about it. He is just clueless about how to officiate them, both sides had no idea he wanted.Excellent effort by the Brumbies. After last night, it looked like the gap between the two countries had widened over Covid, but tonight showed we can be competitive if we stick to our defensive patterns. We can score tries, as the Tahs did last night, but that's only half the game.
I think, out of this game, Fines is a better No 9 than Lonergan, Swain showed he is up to this class of football, Simone was at least even, maybe a little in front of Havili, Banks is our test No 15, and our scrummaging has gone backwards.

In fairness...brumbies known quality to compete.as been best oz side for some time.. we have been waiting for rest to match up..Yep BR, gee isn't that is exactly what some of us have been telling the surrender monkeys in here who keep crying that Aus teams can't compete!
