Do we know if Adam Coleman is still out injured?
I may be wrong...but I highly doubt it, because I'm an Alison
(Note for dullards: this 'signature' is not meant to be taken seriously)
"Props Ben Daley and Tetera Faulkner and second-rower Adam Coleman are all coming back from injury.
Wessels said they could have played but he would not rush them back."
It sounds like he has almost recovered but Wessels doesn't want to rush him. Hopefully this means he is all good to go for the start of the season.
Looks like it starts at 4.30pm??
The Wallabies - Still the only team to score tries and win away from home in both, yes both its World Cup victories!
I vote - and I want a proper rectangular stadium in Perth!
10-5 In our favour at the end of the 1st Quarter. Tries to Stander and Meakes. Early Yellow card for Chance Peni
Why are we playing the Rebels on the Gold Coast? Surely they could have played somewhere there might be a bit of support for the teams
Laugh and the world laughs with you.......
......cry and you'll weaken your beer
Half Time 15-5 - Third try scored by Chance Peni
End of the 3rd Quarter 20-5 4th try scored by L.Morahan
OK, for anybody who's there watching. Are the Rebels looking serious about scoring points or do they look like they're giving the fringe a run?
I see lots of tweets about points scoring, strong attack from set piece and apparently good defense, but we all know how trials go.
Are we likely to come crashing back to earth in round 1?

Trial is may be all it is, however a win is far better than a loss.
There starting fifteen was close to their best line up.
Winning becomes a habit.
Roll on season 2017.
The Force Onwards and Upwards
The squad can only play the opposition that they're given
5 tries to 1 is a good result especially as 4 of them scored by Backs - 3 by new members of the squad.
We've been missing scoring centres so good to see.
1 conversion from 5 is a worry.
I assume that was Jono - so we obviously missed Ian Prior. (Addition: Lance 0/3; Prior 1/2)
Looking forward to the match report from WF and hopefully other sources..

it appears that they got their patterns right-a good sign.
the 10's in brisvegas are a different style of game-so wont be a true indication of where we are at re super rugby
