    True, but you'd expect a smart coach (and all the evidence pointed to Wessels being a smart coach with the Force) to name the injury cover dude in the 23 every week and give him a few minutes at the end of each match to make sure he can fit in seamlessly. Toomua was bought off late in one match (think it was the Brumbies) and there was NOBODY to play 10! It's like they believe that Toomua will play every minute of every game and never be injured. The same thing happened with Foley and the Wallatahs, how did that work out?

    News today is that Toomua is injured and Deegan will start in his place

    So I can start watching Rebels games again?

    Honestly, their pack is being pwned so hard at the moment that I think a little bloke like Deegs is gonna struggle, but the little I saw of him early this season, he started to find his feet and looked OK after a while. then he was left out of the 23 consistently.

    Here's my two bobs worth:
    When those Force guys departed, I understood the reasons, thanked them for their service, and wished them well on their future endeavours. That went for every departure over the years except one.

    I also point blank refused to support any of them and certainly not their future teams.thats the nature of sport, and competition in general. I'm.interested in how Deegs goes, and would like home to get a crack. That's the extent of it for any of them.

    If they return, it's welcome back to full support ahaon. Except for one.

    Pretty much the same as me bison. I have maintained an interest in most of the boys who went to the Rebels, I guess for comparison. It appears to my eyes that not a single one of t Hg em has kicked on and achieved the potential they showed at the force. I'm keen to compare the grr era force players at the rebs to the pre-grr force players, again to build a comparison of how far grr has got to go.

    I'd be interested to hear who your except one is. I've got a couple of candidates but I'm pretty sure mine would be different from yours.

    Pm me

    I still support them as individuals. Surely you would all say DH-P has gone onward and upward?

    Deegan played against the Sunwolves. Scored a try and got dropped.

    No wonder players regress and leave there.

    Dhp is an umm-yeah for me. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have anywhere near the number of wallabies caps if the force existed, but I think his game hasn't kicked on as well as it might (to be fair, there's no guarantee that would have happened in the force either)

    That's right iw was the moon doggies. I remember it took him some time to find his feet, but the pack was monster Ed in that game and he managed to find a way of coping. Made some good tackles as I recall
