I understand you are disappointed at losing, but that is a pathetic comment. If anything your team got the rub of the green.
From a nutural the Brumbies got screwed, Swain card was a joke, straight through the middle of the maul and gets carded.

Final penalty was made up to give the reds another chance, not once had he said advantage and then oh it's a penalty

Hmm, as a neutral I'd not say that. I felt Berry was all over the place but I wouldn't say one team got benefit over the other overall.

Interesting take.

Based on the forward passes in the first try, the sealing off at the breakdown and the constant infringements in the red zone. But as is usual these days a lot gets ignored in the goal of “letting the game flow”. But as for the yellow cards, well don’t infringe.

Awesome work Brumbies. Think you missed Slipper. Lolesio technically the better 10, but fuck me, JOC (James O'Connor). Again.

It isn't luck when it is repeated so often. It's not an easy watch as a fan though. That was tough.

Not sure our centre pairing was right. Sio v Tupou is battle for the ages and will keep giving. Not sure Fotauaika was the right call either, great on the bench but not enough field involvement. Was walking in the first 15 min - a punishing 15 to be sure.

Brumbies are justly going to feel gipped. Possibly the better team. But it just isn't luck.

Congrats Reds, don't leave it 10 years for the next one.

Farcical decision making from the Reds in the last 5 minutes. Take the centre field scrum, chew up two minutes then kick to the corner? Take the tap, twice, against a 6 man scrum? Hope the Wallabies aren’t dishing that up if JOC (James O'Connor) is captain.

Still trying to work out how Berry thought that pass from Lolesio was forward, it wasnt even flat.


While you do that, I'll keep trying to work out how the direct shoulder shot to the neck wasn't a straight red card.

But I guess it's water under the bridge now.

Biebs done good.


Was pissed off with Horan giving away the Super Rugby Ao score, tho.

High chest. First contact was to the chest. Replay showed that pretty clearly.
