Now the tour is over we can all look forward to the start of the Super 14. In all serious I think the Tahs will win it. While the Crusaders and Blues will both have great sides, so will the boys down south. I think it would be great not only for the game here but also for the Super 14 if the grand final were to be played infront of 80, 000 people in Sydney. I'm sure everyone is sick of it being played in crappy bogan stadiums across the ditch. I know everyone down plays the Reds. Hell, even Wally was starting to give up hope on them of having a good season next year but I've recently had a think about it and I think it is possible for them to do okay. They've got a new establishment with experienced high performance advisers and all the rest. We've also got one of the world's premiere scrum doctors in Alec Evans on board. Take a look at the Queensland Reds of 2006... 1. Greg Holmes 2. Stephen Moore 3. Rodney Blake Australia's best young front row with plenty of potential. Alec Evans' magic will be put to good use here. 4. Hugh McMeninman 5. Mark Connors A present Wallaby and Australia's best up and coming lock. Mark Connors is a former established Wallaby over flowing with experience now that he's back from the northern hemisphere. 6. Tom McVerry / James Sua 7. David Croft 8. John Roe A solid backrow without being outstanding. Croft is Australia's best ball pincher after Smith and Waugh. Sua is a faster version of Jerry Collins who can score tries from anywhere. 9. Sam Cordingley 10. Elton Flatley Australia's most experienced halves combo after Gregan and Larkham whom will make sure this young Reds team doesn't crumble under the pressure they will receive next season both on and off the field. They're both former Wallabies and Cordingley was Gregan's under study before Whittaker. 11. Ben Tune 12. Berrick Barnes 13. Lloyd Johansson 14. Drew Mitchell 15. Chris Latham That's a great backline whichever way you look at it. No Sailor this year but hopefully a fit Ben Tune will fill his shoes and more. We all know what Mitchell, Johansson and Latham can do. For those of you who don't know, Barnes was a fringe player with the Brisbane Broncos this year (he'll be 20 or 21 next year). There is hope yet for us Queenslanders. As long as we beat New South Wales in the first round and Sailor gets embarrassed all will be sweet. **** that game will be massive! Now I want bacon. Bye.
