Super Rugby Wrap

Two rounds in the books and the early pre-season favourites are right where we thought they'd be - sitting right atop the ladder.


The Friday night game was an absolute belter.


Penalties galore, the Rebels scoring in 3 point increments only, 7 penalty kicks and no tries.


Referee Jordan Way might need to pick up a new whistle from Rebel Sport this week.


Didn't Hunter Paisami put a fair shot on Matt To'omua!



With a minute to go, Paisami almost became the villain, kicking the ball away in the final minute and then trying to make up for it with another bone-rattler, he got it wrong and clipped Frank Lomani a bit high.


To'omua of course missed the opportunity to ice the game and the Reds win.


For the Reds, the night belonged to Alex Mafi - outstanding.


In the other game, well what do you say?


The Waratahs coach is gone.


Surely.


61-10 - ouch.



Brumbies just dominated everything, contact zone, set piece, breakdown & obviously, the scoreboard.


The Waratahs actually led 3-0 at one stage and the half-time score of 26-10 was manageable.


But wow, that second half was nasty.


35-0.


Something's got to give this week @ the Waratahs. Perhaps assistant coach and Australian 20's coach Jason Gilmore takes over?


This weekend the Tahs get a chance to win a game, they play the Force in Sydney, while the Brumbies take on the Rebels, the Brumbies of course looking for three in a row.


The QLD Reds have the bye - you'd think they'll be having a quiet drink.


We'll have a full round preview later in the week.
