    Rebels V Blues on in Melbourne right now

    Its as ridiculous and tackle discretionary as it always was: scoreline of 18-46 so far after an hour.


    They just dont like tackling, they like running around, its as intense as a preseason game up here.

    Like glorified basketball, impressive athleticism but dull as a contest, imho.

      It's become 7's mixed with rugby league. High paced game with little to no structure.

        Very enjoyable game this morning between the Highlanders and the Crusaders.

        Loads of off the cuff loose running Rugby. An official who let the game flow and didn't pull on every little thing and plenty of scores.

        Very enjoyable.

          Watched the second half, was a superb game. High scoring but people still making their tackles. The kiwi ability to straighten every attacking line just generates so much space on the field. Defences can't crab toward the touchline.


          NZ franchises really decide the title between themselves at the moment. The other nations are watching on.

          My only gripe were the jerseys being difficult to separate. Black V Navy was stupid

            Missed the second half but how did the Crusaders come back from that! Great result for a team full of inexperience.

                Watching dumpers rebels V the chiefs. Interesting game, the instinct to run hard is in everyone. Great skills on display. Chiefs up 11-14 12 mins left

                But the breakdown is mad craic, from my reckoning at every breakdown there is one player doing something illegal and getting away with it.

                  12 minutes into the game and the Hurricanes, at home to the 'Tahs' have 3 converted tries already!!

                  This could get ugly.

                      There was a forward pass there from Beauden Barrett, as he stood facing the touchline. The Touch Judge was perfectly in line with it and nowt was given.

                        What stupidity there, from the 'Canes. They get a Penalty with time up. They kick for touch but under the new dispensation, play continues with the Line-out which they lose. the 'Tahs nearly get a try but are held up and the game finishes.

                        Why not take the Pen to one's self and then kick it dead? or kick it over the Dead-Ball Line?

                        BTW Beauden Barrett got the line in the last few minutes. Don't know why. (Work interrupted)

                          I missed the game from about 30 mins on . . . . .TV acting up.

                          Is that 2 yellow cards in one game for Barrett? He got one in the first half for a deliberate knock down as the Tahs approached the Canes line.




                          edit, I see online reports now. Red Card for Barrett. Because of 2 Yellows.

                            It was definitely Beauden went off.

                              Cummiskey does it again in today's Times.

                              It seems "The restructured Super Rugby format for next season ..... will be reduced from a 17-to 15 team competition"
