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
