    Caught last part & post interview with the Jake White. :bowdown:

    After hearing him talk I’m convinced the spelling of “derby” should actually be “darby”.

    Good win & Brumbie stadium looks like a ghetto pitch vs that of the Rebels.

    The most significant take from this game was that defense had the upper hand over attack by a large margin. If one had to add up the total advantage meters gained via running and passing, you’d get a negative number. There was no lack of trying but it went mostly east to west, whilst shifting south.

    Ninety percent of the match was played between the 22 meter lines.

    Field position only changed via kicks and penalties.

    I wonder if Pocock fetches Jake’s beer for him.

    Nah… Colby Faingaa does…

    Jeez the Aussies have quality depth @ opensider this year…

    Pocock, Hooper, Gill, Faingaa… we could do with some of them in RSA teams…
