Super Rugby starts back in just on a month.
Friday 19th February, Queensland Reds vs NSW Waratahs @ Suncorp Stadium.
Pretty good place to start for season 2021.
The Reds are my tip to win the Australian domestic competition this year, for those that are that way inclined, that's paying $3.20.
The favourites are the Brumbies, of course they are - they're $2.10.
The Reds announced their 2021 squad today, it's farken good.
Before I go any further, if you're a Reds fan like me and want to get behind them this year - get a membership. We get nothing for that, it's just shit house watching it if there's no one else in the stands.
Anyways, back to the squad, it's a good mix of youth and experience and some new faces to get the Reds faithful a little bit excited.
The big signing is of course Melbourne Storm winger, Suliasi Vunivalu - from all reports he's looking pretty bloody good and you'd think he'd be fairly well drilled coming from the Craig Bellamy system.
So that's the marquee signing and you can add that to the big names of Tupou, Paenga-Amosa, Salakaia-Loto, McReight, Wright, Wilson, McDermott, O'Connor, Paisami, Petaia & Daugunu.
That's right - 11 Wallabies - many of them fresh off their first campaign in the Wallaby gold and full of confidence.
There's great young talent too, particularly in the backline that will no doubt spend plenty of time in Queensland Premier Rugby this year and some might get their shot.
Kalani Thomas - the exciting young scrum half.
The Creighton brothers that have been plying their trade @ Crosby Park - they're really good. One probably better than the other but we'll leave them to stew over that.
Then there's Josh Flook, he got a couple of caps in 2020 before injuring his shoulder against the Force - he too is farking good.
And what about Mac Grealy, he's been compared to more people than anyone I've ever come across.
Kalyn Ponga, Tim Horan, Digby Ioane - the kid must be pretty good! He had a seriously impressive season in Premier Grade rugby last year.
Don't forget Hamish Stewart and Jock Campbell also - arguably two of the best for the Reds in 2020 but weren't in Wallabies calculations - this year at least.
It's all pointing to a big year down @ Ballymore. That $3.20 looks very, very nice.
