Go Rebels!

Pete and I are foundation Melbourne Rebel members and this is a picture of their first game. The Rebels inaugural season kicked off on 18 February 2011, with a Round One match against the Waratahs (NSW) at home, in front of over 24,000 people.[4] The Rebels made four changes to the starting 15 to take on the Brumbies on 25 February, in front of over 14,000 people. Brumbies' winger Henry Speight scored a controversial try, off what appeared to be a clear forward pass, and the Brumbies were ahead 24–22. In the final minute of the game, the Brumbies gave away a penalty 37 metres out from the Rebels line, after some push and shove in a Brumbies scrum. Danny Cipriani slotted the penalty, handing Melbourne their debut Super Rugby win, 25 points to 24. What a game!
