    QLD Reds will surprise a lot of people this year imo. Stiles will prove he's an excellent coach and that will coincide with a lot of smart recruitment decisions.

    Brumbies and Rebels will drop off from last year and I think Force will improve.

    Hopefully the Auckland region side can finally get their act back together.

    Great start for the Blues. Absolutely smashed the Rebels.

    Went to my first game of Super Rugby last night. I was actually surprised at how poor some of the handling/skill errors were by the Rebels. Having said that, I thought the Blues were an impressive outfit. I haven't followed the fortunes of the Super Rugby clubs for a while, are the Blues anticipated to be up there this year?

    Blues are a good side but it is hard to tell how much of it was the Blues being good or the Rebels being terrible...

    Forsyth Barr Stadium is nice to look at.

    10 minutes gone in Tokyo and it's 19-0 to the Hurricanes.

    Are the Sunwolves stacked with part-time players or what's the story?

    Didn't get to see this game as I was out. I think Debreczeni has to go back to fly half. We need someone with more experience leading the backline around the park

    I think the Rebels should move heaven and earth to get Beale back. Play him at 15 and put Debreczeni at 10, then we could have 9 Sirzaker, 10 Debreczeni, 11 English, 12 Hodge, 13 Inman, 14 Naivalu and 15 Beale

    Proud of the Rebels knocking off the Brumbies after everything that happened
