Newsome at 13 is a weird one. Defensively he has been really poor and i'm not sure how much 13 Newsome has played.
The back 3 looks better and Bell has some big hype on him.
Rain predicted for Friday night in Melbourne.

Pouring rain for the first half. Rebels with the vast majority of the possession and territory. Both sides go into grab oranges with the Rebels 8 - 3 up. and the Tahs lucky to be only a try behind.
Contentious decision just before halftime with a try overruled on review with obstruction. I feel the Rebels were hard done by with that decision.
If the rain keeps up, the team that plays in the other's half will win.

Thanks for ruining my multi Tahs.
Well deserved win by the Rebels. 24 - 10
Plenty of handling errors and tunrovers, but the majority by the Tahs and some good defence in the wet by the Rebels.
MoTM should be shared between Louwrens and To'omua. Honourable mention to Naisarani.

@Yeetyaah Can't even beat the Rebels. Shameful.
We're lucky there's a bye next week or we could be 0 - 4 for the season.

How much pressure is Rob Penny under virtually
0-4 with the Bye next week

Sydney being 0 & 4, and Auckland being 1 & 3 is pretty much the worst case scenario for Super Rugby.

@Tim yep, not looking good for the two big cities.
