Don't understand it personally. Absolutely no point in keeping him there if you were going to sack him 2 games into the season. May as well have given a new coach a proper pre season etc.
The make up of the QRU Board changed close to the start of the season that removed what support he did have and the results gave them the reason to do it

Bloody pi**ed me off watching the last 5 minutes. Surely after the 3rd penalty a penalty try should've been awarded along with a yellow for constant infringements close to the line?

Far from our best performance tonight but did enough to get over a pretty average Western Force side that showed little to no intent.
Off to Saffer land now, need to return home with atleast a split from the trip

This is beyond a joke now, something needs to change so the Rebels can become successful on the field. If they don't their future is in jeopardy
Got the win over the Reds so not all doom and gloom

Just managing to sneak a win against the Reds isn't all that great...

What was the go with the surface last night? Looked appalling.

We have that many injuries it's not funny so I'll take that win thank you! Looks like they've either laid new turf or they're keeping it shorter than normal for the soccer.

A win is a win, 2-1 for the season now and the Sunwolves this week.
Don't think the Rebels are world beaters but they are far from the worst team in Australia.
Agree the ground looked terrible

As said above, a wins a win. I was just surprised at how close it got. The Reds were appalling the 2 weeks prior. Coming back from SA probably didn't help either.

That turf is going to struggle. Between the Storm, Rebels and Victory/City, that stadium get's very little rest.

It gets the same amount of usage every year but I've never seen it that bad before.

Highlanders v Tahs was a weird game
Yeah, was cheering when I saw Otago out to a big lead and thought that would be that. Must say I was surprised when I heard that the Tahs had almost won

Tahs found every possible way to turn the ball over so it was fitting that right at the end they even took a quick line out throw from the wrong mark handing the throw to Otago.

Lol at the sound mixing for the Jaguars game. The refs mic is louder than the commentary
The sound mixing was just as bad as the Jaguars, woeful performance from a side stacked with internationals. Never seen a side handle the ball so poorly

The Chiefs were so good against the Brumbies last night. The NZ rugby production line just keeps on delivering. Thought we might be a good chance in the Bledisloe this year but that optimism is quickly slipping away.
