I can't wait for this final, should be a humdinger. Let's have more of this SRAu in years to come.
Do you remember the Reds game against the Crusaders at Canterbury in March last year, which they lost 24 -20.
The Reds refused to take a backward step and outscored the Super Rugby champions four tries to three in an effort that should have been rewarded with a match win -they scored 4 tries to 3 by the Crusaders, but failed to convert any.
If they play anywhere like that against the Brumbies, and they should play even better now, then the poor nags won't know what hit them. I expect a bigger margin than the 26 -7 towelling at Suncorp.
Partner having a baby or something.
Let’s just hope the Reds havent already played their Grand Final, they’ve had some big games the last few weeks, it will either work for them by carrying over the form and confidence, or against them if they’ve emotionally and mentally spent themselves.
So Brumbies rolling out their 5th halves combination in as many game, at least these two played a fair bit of rugby together at the start of the year, the Brumbies backline looked incredibly disjointed in their last match
