    Thorn pricks Quade

    Apparently new coach Brad Thorn has no use for Quades services at the Reds. No longer a Wallaby under Coach Clown. Quade has two years left on his contact, so the Reds and RatsArse are going to have to find a cool million or so to pay him out, on top of whatever they paid Toulon to release him. No problemo, there is a $6m kitty.

    For all his faults and limitations, Quade draws a crowd and can swing any game, someone to fear. I'd personally rather watch Quade than Foley.

    Cooper had a one season deal and an option of an extra season with Toulon. He chose not to take up as Cheika got in his ear about coming home.

    We need to know if the Reds had to fork out for Leroy Houston as he broke his Bath contract and left to go to Bordeaux with time remaining on the Reds deal

    Frisby has also been let go by the Reds.

    It is Rugby suicide to go in to Super Rugby with a rookie half back pairing.

    Two of them could have played for the WA side in the Brisbane 10s

    Two player right there that could and should play in the new IPRC. Both are good players and Quade does draw a crowd.

    Seems that Thorn is now the new Messiah, & all are bending over backwards to give in to his demands. Just like they did with Cheika, & and see how thatís turned out!

    Very true, I'd put that down to his good ol' down-to-earth Mungo upbringing.

    Cheika at least had a coaching record. Thorn's consists of one NRC title. He has less experience than Stiles.

    I'm sure they can just add a 184th player to their 2018 squad...

    Heard Wessels was trying to get rid of Stirzaker and a couple of others to ensure Ruru and others gets game time. Anyone else hear that?
    RUPA should make them get rid of Parling and Mafi. No more imports please. If your a permanent resident then ok.
