Interesting game. Really uninspiring by the Rebels. Feel dirty saying it, but I'll be cheering the Reds on next week.

Best possible result for the reds, rebels limp into the finals looking like they've already played theirs. Will be amazed if they can get up for another game next week

They seem to be making alot of the "Rebels make finals for the first time". Surely this isnt the same, i mean its a 5 team comp amongst just Aussie teams.

Yeah sure Rebels didn't deserve it. Rebels definitely don't deserve to get to the Finals. but fuck it. We are actually in the finals for the first time ever, yee-haw. Feels great. Bloody tried to lose it so many times. Good work by the Rebels to actually finish off a game.

Yeah, enjoy the win. At least one more game to watch :)

You say it was uninspiring but what do you expect? We have played one good game in eight weeks, we aren’t tracking well

So everyone stops for a possible grounding and then they award a try when everyones wpndering whats going on.

The only thing consistent about the Rebels is their inconsistency.

But on the positive Rebels fans can enjoy making their fist final series. Sometimes does not matter how ugly it is - just need to get the monkey of your back.

Commisserations to the Force but they certainly save their best game till last and can be proud of their first season back in Super Rugby given only 1 month to try and put together a Super Rugby competitive squad - playing away from home etc.

I hear you. I was hoping you know with all that time together and as the comp went on they'd continue to improve, evolve. As much as I'm bummed that the Tahs are now out, I am happy that they seemed to keep getting a little better and some of their attack really started to come together. The Rebels I just don't see what they are working towards.

Rebels really made work of that. Ralston really cost the Force with that stupid challenge.

Can I just say, a lot of bloody misery guts here.

Tough game of footy with a firm breeze. Dropped balls were a frustration but how about getting around a hollywood finish and a team getting to play finals?

The Rebels winning is going to make plenty of people here in Melbourne just a little bit happier amidst an absolutely shit situation that few of you outside the state can really understand,
