It's back. Again. The first Super Rugby season since Rugby Australia stupidly gave the Western Force the final deletion instead of the Brumbies or nobody. Also the first season since South Africa's Cheetahs and Southern Kings were booted (they now play in the Pro14, the competition for Ireland, Italy and bits of the UK). So 15 teams all up.

Last night the Stormers defeated the Jaguares and the Lions beat the Sharks. The 4 Australian teams, 5 New Zealand teams, Bulls and Sunwolves start playing next weekend.

The final will be on August 4th (local time).

Went to my first rebels game and thoroughly enjoyed it. The crowd also eclipsed the AFLW game which i think is a huge achievement

The deliberate knock-on interpretation is a little over the top these days.

Still haven't decided who to support now that my Force is gone :think:

Home town ref overcompensating

But the tahs scrum was terrible and ball security wasnt great.

Good to get a 1st up win.

Lucky win for the Tahs. Stadium looked empty so crowd figure probably won't be released.

I'll support the Force in the NRC and the Wallabies in tests. Used to favour the Brumbies in the pre Force days but really CGAF about SR any more, just keeping an eye on how Wallaby and/or ex Force players are tracking.

A win to start the season but a much tougher contest than I’d imagined. Credit to the Sunwolves but a tad disappointed with our efforts and losing out on a BP in the dying minutes could come back to haunt us

Absolutely pathetic tonight. Poor discipline cost us against an average Reds side who wouldn’t of crossed over if the game went for 4 days. Can’t keep giving away dumb penalties

Rebels got 5,000 people to turn up. Looks like a good decision ARU.
Shut up idiot. All our other crowds have been over 10k we got 17k to our last game. It was absolutely pi**ing down with rain in Melbourne and the game was up against round one of club rugby

Congratulations. The strategy to cut ticket prices in half is clearly an overwhelming success...

You also got 8,400 against the Sharks. The only reason 16k turned up against the Canes is because you were playing a NZ side. No different to when the Storm play the Warriors and get a big crowd.

So the Waratahs blow a 29-0 lead and lose to the Crusaders, the Sunwolves run up a cricket score on the Reds and Brumbies vs Rebels attracts literally half as many spectators as the most recent GWS game in Canberra.

Dark days indeed.
After theve kicked out the Force and now my hometown Emus I sit back and laugh.

Cheering on the opposition to any Australian Rugby.

I heard about this on Bill & Boz. Getting thrashed regularly but punting a team from a competition 4 games in is a strange move.

Too far West of the boys club?
