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.
