  • 80'

    FULL TIME! 31-34. The Sunwolves will wonder how they threw this game away. They were the better side for 90% of the clash but allowed the Reds three tries in 5 minutes, then regained the lead and gave away a try and penalty in the last two minutes. Reds get their first win of the season!

  • 79'

    PENALTY! REDS! STEWART! 31-34. From right in front Stewart lands a penalty to take the Reds into the lead.

  • 77'

    The conversion is wide by Stewart.

  • 76'

    TRY! REDS! MCDERMOTT! 31-31. An attempted clearance is charged down and McDermott dives over. Level again. Crazy game.

  • 73'

    PENALTY! SUNWOLVES! PARKER! 31-26. Good attack by the Sunwolves again and they win a penalty right in front.

  • 69'

    CONVERSION! SUNWOLVES! PARKER! 28-26. Parker does not look like he is going to miss anytime soon.

  • 68'

    TRY! SUNWOLVES! UCHIDA! 26-26. Crazy few minutes this. Now the Sunwolves go over following an error by the Reds from the kick off. Level again.

  • 66'

    CONVERSION! REDS! STEWART! 21-26. Conversion is good. 21 points in 6 minutes by the Reds.

  • 65'

    TRY! REDS! PAENGA-AMOSA! 21-24. What is happening here! Another try for the Reds as they go into the lead for the first time today. The TMO confirms. This has been the ultimate collapse from the hosts.

  • 62'

    CONVERSION! STEWART! 21-19. Easy conversion this time for the fullback.

  • 61'

    TRY! REDS! HOOPER! 21-17. And the Reds are back into it with another try. Poor defence from the hosts which allow the Reds to go the length of the field via 7 phases.

  • 59'

    CONVERSION! REDS! STEWART! 21-12. Stewart converts well.

  • 58'

    TRY! REDS! PAENGA-AMOSA! 21-10. The Reds eventually find the score they so desperately need following another scrum penalty and maul.

  • 56'

    An error ridden start to the second half continues as the Sunwolves knock-on now on their own 10m line. The Reds will need points soon in order to gain momentum in this game.

  • 53'

    Little is penalised for not rolling away which offers the Reds another penalty on halfway but Lucas misses touch again.

  • 51'

    Brilliant defence from the Sunwolves as they drive the Reds back. The visitors just can't find the line break and eventually a knock-on occurs.

  • 47'

    Great defence by the hosts as the Reds maul falls just short and then Kerevi gets held up over the line. Scum Reds.

  • 46'

    Reds win a penalty for side entry from the maul and set up a lineout 5 metres from the Sunwolves line.

  • 44'

    Reds start the half well by finding space and breaking tackles but another loose pass allows the Sunwolves to relieve some pressure before the Reds win a scum penalty again.

  • 41'

    KICK OFF! The second half is underway. The Reds will want some early momentum to get back into this.

  • 40'

    The Reds try to hit straight back from the kick off but another silly error gives the Sunwolves a penalty inside their own 22. The the Australians want to get back into this they will need a far better second half.

  • 40'

    HALF TIME! 21-5. A very good performance by the hosts see them lead comfortably at the break. The Reds, bar for their 1 try, have hardly threatened while the Sunwolves continue to move the ball wide at speed where they are finding plenty of space. Join us in a bit for the second 40.

  • 39'

    CONVERSION! SUNWOLVES! PARKER! 21-5. Parker extends the lead with another tough kick.

  • 38'

    TRY! SUNWOLVES! PRYOR! 19-5. The best try of the match thus far. Great defence from the Reds as they drive the Sunwolves back to the 22m line, but again the hosts find space beyond the Reds narrow defence. Great hands on the left hand touchline and they have their 3rd try.

  • 35'

    The Sunwolves give away their 4th scrum penalty of the half but Lucas fails to find touch! Booth counters, collects his chip and sets up a ruck 5 metres out. The next phase sees the hosts go over but it looks held up. TMO confirms.

  • 33'

    Lucas clears with penalty for the Reds but they are still well inside their own half. The visitors have struggled to get any territory or possession in the first half.

  • 31'

    The Reds manage to clear under pressure but their defence spacing is far too narrow which is allowing the Sunwolves plenty space out wide.

  • 30'

    The Reds manage to clear under pressure but their defence spacing is far too narrow which is allowing the Sunwolves plenty space out wide.

  • 28'

    Reds are making a lot of errors and allowing the Sunwolves easy exits. Two penalties in a row again and the Sunwolves are on the attack inside the Reds 22 again.

  • 25'

    CONVERSION! SUNWOLVES! PARKER! 14-5. What a kick from the touchline. That is now 16/16 for Parker this season.

  • 24'

    TRY! SUNWOLVES! VOSAYACO! 12-5. Another beautiful try by the Sunwolves. Little does well down the left hand touchline before the ball goes wide right. Van der Heerver runs a good line to draw the Reds defence before floating a long pass to Vosayaco who goes through in the corner untouched.

  • 22'

    It's a knock-on by the hosts on attack as they look for their second try. Some great attack by the Sunwolves thus far, but they need to sort out their scrum.

  • 19'

    MISSED. The conversion attempt is well wide of the mark.

  • 18'

    TRY! REDS! WRIGHT! 7-5. The Reds get their maul going and the Sunwolves can't deal with it. They went over 20 metres there with the maul.

  • 17'

    The Reds look to hit straight back and end up winning a penalty just inside the hosts half. They kick for touch and the lineout will be on the Sunwolves 22m line.

  • 14'

    CONVERSION! SUNWOLVES! PARKER! 7-0. Parker, who has been in great kicking form this season, converts.

  • 13'

    TRY! SUNWOLVES! BOOTH! 5-0. What a try! From inside his own half Little makes a break, beating numerous defenders with a strong run before offloading to Saumaki who in turn offloads to Booth for the scrumhalf to dive over.

  • 8'

    Van der Heever puts in a massive clearing kick from inside his 22 to 10 metres from the Reds try-line. Great pressure reliever from the former Bulls winger.

  • 4'

    Sunwolves off to a bright start. The hosts get a scrum on the halfway line and then take the ball through numerous phases before finding space out wide, but the ball is lost 5 metres from the Reds line and the visitors can clear.

  • 1'

    KICK OFF! We are underway. The Sunwolves get us started and they play from left to right for the first 40 minutes.
