The third game of the day and it is not even lunch time yet! The Reds host the Rebels in an Australian derby this morning, the Reds having won both their opening games and looking like they are going to make it three from three against a Rebels team that looks a lot like the team they were last year, when they finished stone last.

The Reds, without their key playmaker Quade Cooper, has done extremely well with a talented Mike Harris standing in for Cooper, and with a much better kicking percentage, is sure to be included somewhere in team once Cooper does return.

The Rebels finally have both their tar recruits available, with Kurtley Beale overcoming his injury to start his first game for the Melbourne team.

I can only really see this game going one way, but it has been a weekend of strange results so far, so we will have to wait and see what happens.

Reds: 15. Luke Morahan, 14. Dom Shipperley, 13. Ben Tapuai, 12. Jonathan Lance, 11. Digby Ioane, 10. Mike Harris, 9. Will Genia, 8. Jake Schatz, 7. Liam Gill, 6. Scott Higginbotham, 5. James Horwill (Captain), 4. Rob Simmons, 3. James Slipper, 2. James Hanson, 1. Ben Daley

Replacements: 16. Saia Faingaa, 17. Greg Holmes, 18. Van Humphries, 19. Radike Samo, 20. Beau Robinson, 21. Ben Lucas, 22. Rod Davies

Rebels: 15. Kurtley Beale, 14. Mark Gerrard, 13. Mitch Inman, 12. James O`Connor, 11. Cooper Vuna, 10. Daniel Cipriani, 9. Richard Kingi, 8. Gareth Delve (Captain), 7. Tom Chamberlain, 6. Tim Davidson, 5. Hugh Pyle, 4. Luke Jones, 3. Laurie Weeks, 2. Adam Freier, 1. Nic Henderson

Replacements: 16. Luke Holmes, 17. Rodney Blake, 18. Alister Campbell, 19. Jarrod Saffy, 20. Nick Phipps, 21. Lachlan Mitchell, 22. Julian Huxley

  • @Ice (Comment 11) : It`s a combination of factors I believe.

    The crucial thing we need to learn is that possession is a curse at the moment. The team on the attack is penalised the most.

    The end of fetchers maybe?

    You want the opponents to have possession deep in their own half all the time. Points will come . . . Well if you have a kicker in your team.

  • @klempie (Comment 23) : The scores are low because more than half the games have been derbies.

    Of the 19 matches played so far this year 14 have been derbies. IMO the guys raise their games for the derbies . The 5 non derby games actually had decent scorelines.
