    Is this the stupidest statement ever made in the media

    OK, cards on the table, it's a slow day at work and I'm sitting, bored, looking up stuff on the interwebs trying to keep myself awake.

    Imagine my surprise when I came across this little gem

    ahem, WHICH FREAKING CROSS-TASMAN DOMINANCE??????

    Australian rugby teams a currently sitting on 1 win out of 7 in cross-conference matches. This "dominance" is 1 match in a row!

    Sure they've had a couple of wins against the Sunwolves, but, since they are in the Australian conference they don't even count as a win vs an international team! certainly not "cross-tasman"

    Moreover, what chance do you think the Rebels have of a win against the Highlanders? zero? can you measure probability as a negative? the Melbournian's pack is brittle, fragile, virtually doesn't even turn up at the stadium, they're no chance. and with the Brumbies on a bye and nobody in the Australian conference playing an in-conference derby, there is a very real chance that they'll be leaving the weekend with precisely zero wins.

    I'm sure the paper-sellers in Sydney will spin the living shit out of the slightest single positive on the weekend (maybe Kurtley Beale will make a tackle, stranger things have happened)

    that being said, I will have the Rebels' game on the box, in the hope of again seeing Deegan and Orr pitting their skills against Super Rugby quality opponents.

    Maybe stupidest Rugby claim but In a world where Scotty from Marketing is still PM with the current Liberal Party corruption its probably well down the list.

    Oh well, at least I got a laugh out of that.

    In saying that; still have not watched a SR match. But after some of the comments here, I watched most the Rabble mini replay. Deegs & Lowrens did good as did most of our ex players. It was weird TBH, first time I've watched and I was happy to see them doing well. But then reality kicked in and I didn't finish watching. I won't bother again.

    I bloody dunno why all you bloody commos are down on Scomo. Dead set!

    He has already declared a pandemic and has an action plan. Way ahead of those WHO dickheads. I reckon he will outdo his efforts during the fire season.

    sorry.

    Be hilarious if both Louwrens and Deegan end up in the mix with Rennie later in the year. They'll need the Rabble pack to find some mongrel somewhere first though. I wouldn't write Fines off either if he can just get a chance to play his way into contention.

    Looks like the Rabble found that mongrel in Dunedin . But are looking a lot like like they won't be able to hang on to it much longer.

    Luckily (?) the Highlanders' went missing for the last quarter too......and the Trans-Tasman dominance continues?
