    For all chat involving the Reds and their unbridled path to Super 14 glory in 2010.

    No doubt they are off the chain.

    That's the spirit! Season after season of failure, and hope still remains.

    Great thread for the greatest provincial team in the super 15.

    I always wonder how the Freestate manage to beat the Crusaders and the Sharks but not other teams. They probably have the best forward pack as a whole in the competition (at least this year) but utter crap from jersey no. 10 up and bleed tries. The same can possibly be said of the Reds but the other way around; I mean, between Genia, Cooper, Barnes (K, so he bailed), Iaone and Hynes one would expect better results.

    Did he go from the 2009 Reds Squad back into the academy?

    I don't know if he was ever in the actual Reds squad was he? I don't recall him notching any minutes anyway. He's defiantly a better prospect than Brando though.

    mate I am 100% sure he had a full Queensland contract in 2009, he was in the main player profiles last year. On 100-200k? Down to the 10k Academy contract now.

    what do you think of the new academy players Wally? Gill will be a Wallaby but I cant believe Matt Lucas got a contract. I'd pick anyone from that state high backline over him anyday.

    Bad call by the Reds to let Mowen go after his excellent season last year with the Waratahs

    You're joking if you think that's the biggest blunder the Reds management have made when it comes to player recruitment and retention over the last few years. Here's a small list:

    David Pocock
    Rocky Elsom
    Mark Chisholm
    Hugh McMeniman
    Berrick Barnes
    Nathan Sharpe
    Drew Mitchell
    Mitchell Chapman
    James O'Connor
    Stephen Moore
    Matt Toomua
    Nemani Nadolo
    Richard Brown
    Stefano Hunt

    Could have used one or two of those Queenslanders hey.

    Looking at last years table ^^^....

    what's the Reds aim this year??


























    11th or 12th??

    :p

    I just can't help but think how good the Reds backline would have done this year if they managed to keep Berrick Barnes.

    9. Genia
    10. Barnes ©
    11. Morahan
    12. Cooper
    13. Chambers
    14. Ioane
    15. Hynes

    That would have been 5 current Wallabies, a former NRL premiership winner and a sprint champion.

    Rodney Davies is better than Morahan, Davies has done a lot of work in the off season.

    Davies is a gumby. He's quick but not as quick as Morahan, and I don't think he has a good rugby head on him.
