    Na bro, they have 3 championships.

    The Rebels can't even make the finals with an open cheque book and all the Forces original talent.

    Nothing alike.

    You owe the blues an apology.

    All depends on where they play BB … but he'll have Joe Marchant in the midfield to do some damage !

    Happy to support the Highlanders in Super Rugby as they are team that is most like the Western Force.

    My only interest in Australian SR teams is checking the performance of ex-WF players.

    Much the same as elsewhere.
    Good to see Luke Morahan doing so well with Bristol and Jayden Howard doing well with Italy and getting all kinds of awards.
