I still remember me flinging myself off the couch screaming at the 79.34 mark when the Tahs kicked it back to the Reds instead of burying it in the forwards.

That game and the ZERO LETDOWN the following week against the Force has sold me on this team.

Rugby is 90% above the shoulders and the Reds look to be having this in heaps. 

As far as Rostos is concerned, he is convinced everything is fixed, so in that case, the Crusaders should win everything again.

The Aust conf will come down to week 18. The Tahs are a scrappy side, but they won't get blown out often so theit F&A will look good going into the Qld game. They also have an easier road schedule then the reds

At the prices the best value out there is the Bulls. There's some $13 out there, $7 to make the final.


$7 for the Bulls to make the Finals?  Where?  No way!

Well, it was nerve-wracking, but the Reds get it done this round.    And with the Bulls shitting the bed, as I figured they might, the Reds now move into sole position of first place after 3/18 Rounds.



Trip to SA next up to face the Sharks and Bulls.

Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarn the Reds!!!

Can someone tell me why Queensland is actually priced better in some places to win the GF this week as compared with last week?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh....my darkhorse of the comp before the season started!

Going to wait one more round and if they still look good after the Bye, will pick some of them up as well.

Yeah, I thought that, but four points is four points.

Maybe also because of the trip to SA coming up?

Their schedule this season would have been factored in the outset which is why I didn't think it was a good bet

But if they win 1 or both of their next 2 games then you are looking pretty good.

Being up 17-0 and having 78% possession in the first 30 minutes was awesome.

Losing the match was not so awesome.



However, good news all-around.  Reds lost because both Harris and Lucas went out.  Genia had to shift to 10.  Sharks took over after that.  If either of those guys stayed in, Reds win walking away.

Also, Reds losing bonus-point keeps them atop Australia.  Tahs lose, Brumbies lose, Rebels lose, Force look like garbage.

Hopefully we can grab points against the Bulls next round and that Harris and Lucas are fine.

The collapse against the Sharks is smoke and mirrors.  This Reds team is just getting warmed up.  And when Cooper comes back, the octane in the petrol tank returns, like him or hate him.

Which is why the Reds bet was irresistible to me.

Season changes this week. Carter back, and they have to play the cheetahs.

The line will be huge

Nah, no stress at all.

Just a relaxing day watching the footy.
