From Skid Row to Hero

What a difference 7 days makes! In a gripping and intense game of rugby the crowd went wild as the Rebels stole victory in the final minute of the game. Sure, it was a dubious penalty that got them home, but no-one could begrudge them their win after an awesome defensive display from the new team was complemented by brilliant tactical kicking from Cipriani and Gerrard. Cipriani, who during the week had looked to be on a fast-track to skid row, was suddenly the crowd's pin-up boy. Cooper Vuna was always dangerous on the left wing while in the forwards Lipman and the admirable Delve had huge games. The crowd support for the Rebels was remarkable, at times more reminiscent of an English Premier League game than Australian Rugby.
Rod Macqueen once again showed he is the master coach while rumors and rumbles suggest that Andy Friend is on the nose in Brumbyland. 

What odds a return of Eddie Jones to Canberra next year?
