    Rebels v Waratahs

    I think JOC and Mitch inman have made a bad choice. It is their first match of the season, but no ball bal land terrible defence.

    On a positive, Mark Gerrard looks like their only player and Gareth Delve, Whilst welsh, is a great player, though i don't know how long he is going to be in the team for (perhaps not like sharpie). Phipps had pretty good service, in a team that had no ball. JOC missed a lot of tackles.

    The young 15 from the Tahs has had a good game, though against a sub par team.

    Luke Holmes and Rod Blake are also on, doing fairly well too.

    Mitch Inman did more in the first 5 mins of this game, than he did in 2 years at the force.

    Gotta laugh at "JUDAS" as I remembered he said he was leaving the force to development himself in a better team and club... Started great even judas can't sae the rebels.

    I have to ask the question, who is the fox sports favorite love child... It's has to be a 2 horse race cooper or judas... Every 2nd comment is these two players. Both I don't give 5 seconds of a minute.

    On the other hand, Luke Holmes looked pretty good in a soundly beaten outfit. Good to see him playing Super Rugby again.

    Luke Holmes' haircut makes him look a bit queer.

    Pyle and Jones were good.

    Impressed with the Rebs front row.
    Nick Phipps needs to learn how to tackle. That was embarrassing.

    Gerrard was the only back that really impressed for the Rebs and he will get subbed for Beale when he gets back.

    Waratahs were ok but looked like they had stopped caring after 50 minutes. What the hell is with the Rebels kicking penalties at 20 odd points behind and 20 minutes to go?

    I really like Chris Alcock. Given the scoreline, there didn't actually seem to be a lot of standouts for the Tahs.

    I picked Alcock in my fantasy team at the last minute because Neau Robinson will have Bam in his face all game......in the first two minutes I thought it was going to be a master stroke!

    He settled down a bit after that, but should score pretty well.
    I'm waiting for my tactic of selecting 5 goal kicking number 10s to come good.

    Yep, that's a first for most of us!

    Bernard Foley was pretty impressive. Eye gauge accusation by Tom Carter looked BS

    Carter is a cheeky stirrer.

    Welcome to the world of the Rebels, JOC! Nice to see the look on your face when you were subbed!

    Can't believe it myself I went for the tahds, rebels seemed to be just stirring shit more than playing rugby. What brand is there over there? Tahs should have ruthlessly put them to the sword but turned off?

    Apparently they had extensive video footage and written testimony from both Carter and the Tahs team doctor with evidence to show that there was contact with carter's eye. Apparently he sustained a minor scratch to the eye but was otherwise fine.

    The suspension was reduced from 12 weeks to 10 weeks because of his unblemished record.
