On This Day: 17th May 2014 - Queensland Reds v Melbourne Rebels (Super Rugby)

  • Digging deep into the archives here.

  • No media accreditation for this one, just some shots from the stands, and the quality is pretty poor

  • The game was Beau Robinson's 50th Cap, and Jack Debreczeni was in line to make his debut from the bench for the Rebels

  • In a close game, the Rebel's got a 30-27 win with a 79th minute penalty to Jason Woodward, following a Red Card to Ed O'Donoghue.

  • Ironically, Ed O'Donoghue was later cleared of any foul play, while Reds skipper James Horwill was fined $2500 for his post match comments.

  • Try scorers were Ben Lucas, Greg Holmes and Mike Harris for the Reds, and Luke Burgess 2, and Tom Kingston
