Ewen McKenzie one of the finest coaches of the game today. He practically turned crap into gold, and I mean that in the utmost respect. Im sure the Reds will bounce back next season.

But Ewen let his team down by moving Genia frm his dangerous position 9 to 10 which negated his presence, he couldn't make his sniping runs around the blind side or edge of the ruck. He didn't get as mch opportunities to influence the game the way he can. After watchin that performance I can definently say there is a big difference between a 9 and a 10 because Genia as a 9 can win you a game by sheer brilliance but as a 10 he loses something in his game.

It is always difficult to get back to back victories, in addition the injury list was truly awful. How many Wallabies will miss the 4N?

"If fumbling Foley leads the Tahs, then the Reds and the Brumbies are going to head the Aussie conference next year and be in the top 6 on merit." [from Wallaroo...]
The ONLY way that Australian teams will become credible in this competition is by winning matches outside of the conference matches. Take the Reds as an example this year - they won 7 of their 8 conference matches - but ONLY 4 of their 8 against other opposition. 4 of the 5 losses were away matches. This just highlights the consistency required each season to build a legacy of success. The Reds are very capable of beating anyone at home BUT to really be consistently successful, they also need to take this success with them on the road.

@tha_mai, that they are but I will only believe it when I see it lol.
I trust our media as much as a I trust Julia Guilard with saliency on economic policies.

Wallaroo - your papers reporting Foley moving to Force on a 3yr deal, along with Waratahs team manager Chris Webb. Michale Cheika next option?

Been a horrific year with injuries for the Reds, Can not help but feel they were unable to build any form of momentum because of it..

Ewen McKenzie is the best coach in Aus and has good reason to be proud of the guys. The Reds will bounce back and will be a much better team next year.
