  1. Didn’t see game ( why would I without Waratahs having Super Pretorious on the roster?)
    But I am rooting for Waratahs this year. 1st season they’ve been “cancer free” ( Coach Michael Foley-less) in some time.
    Not more than Brumbies though – due to you know who as coach.

    Nah. Liked seeing the Reds break out of their funk a couple years ago – but that’s more for them being underdogs at the time.
    Quade Cooper was also an interesting twist – but he kept twisting & went crooked – hopefully he steadies this year.
