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.

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...

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

Finally we get a win on the board, wasn't pretty though. Really think we will struggle this season

The overall table looks a bit of a joke with a team on 26 points sitting 3rd and a team on 19 points sitting in 4th place.

Routed the Jaguares in Argentina to pretty much sew up the conference once again.
Really can't see us troubling anyone in the finals though

Horrendous decision to send DHP off after consistent offsides from the Canes. Force probably spent 30 minutes out of 80 on the Canes line for no points. That hurts. 34-7 is no reflection on how this game has gone.
