Last 20mins was ok.
But yeah it was a World Cup final and if the 3 points was on offer I’m sure most would take them.

So they’re going to a 5 team Australian comp.

Super Rugby was already circling the drain before the virus happened so I think it’s unlikely the league itself will survive. So what’s next for the future? A 10 team comp with only Aus/NZ teams? I’d rather ditch the franchises altogether and make a new national competition with Club Rugby teams featuring promotion/relegation.

Not that bothered to see Super Rugby go, the format has run its course, and expansion to more countries was never going to help.

I'd love to see a slightly expanded local comp. Bring back the Force, get another NSW and QLD team. Fiji could work too.

But if they were to start rebranding team, and I lost the Brumbies, I'd probably give up on the sport tbh

Do you support a Club Rugby team?

Toutai Kefu is fighting for his life after being stabbed in a home invasion. Seriously what is wrong with people? We need start hanging these blokes again, absolute oxygen thieving grubs of human beings.

Wallabies legend Toutai Kefu is clinging to life after being stabbed in his Brisbane home while trying to defend his family during a reported break in.
The former back rower was at home when three people broke into his family home in Coorparoo at 3am on Monday morning.
According to Channel 7, Kefu was stabbed in the stomach after the family confronted the men and a brawl erupted.

Seven ambulance crews attended the scene and he was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital and is in a serious condition with abdominal wounds.
He has been in surgery all morning.
Kefu’s wife, son and daughter were injured during the frenzy and were also taken to hospital.
His wife suffered a significant arm injury, while his son suffered lacerations to his back and abdominals and his daughter a hand injury.

Neighbours were reportedly woken and raced to the scene to help, holding down one of the alleged offenders who was arrested at the scene, while the other two managed to get away.

Two people are in police custody following the incident.
A police statement read: “Police have two males in custody following a burglary and wounding in Cooparoo this morning.
“Police were called to Buena Vista Avenue at around 3am in relation to an incident.
“Early information suggested a number of males were disturbed breaking into a dwelling there and a violent altercation left four members of the house injured.
“One male was restrained and taken into custody at the scene.
“Further offenders fled in a car toward Woolloongabba.
“The four injured residents were transported to the Princess Alexander Hospital for treatment. A man in his 40s has serious injuries.
Investigators urge witnesses to contact police.”

Kefu played 60 times for the Wallabies, including winning the World Cup in 1999 and scoring a match-winning and Bledisloe Cup-winning try in 2001.
He made 103 appearances for the Queensland Reds during his career before moving to Japan and eventually taking up coaching, and is currently the head coach of the Tongan national team.


Hope Kef pulls through, he’s a bloody tough fella though.

Bit of a humble brag, but my old club will feature on a Brumbies jersey this year
