The Queensland Reds have secured a bonus point win to start their 2024 Super Rugby Pacific campaign against rivals the NSW Waratahs.

Scoring 40 points in today’s clash, Les Kiss’s side have looked in great shape throughout the afternoon, with the likes of Harry Wilson, Fraser McReight, Tate McDermott, Tom Lynagh and Jordan Petaia all catching the eye.

On the other side of the action, the Waratahs have had their moments as they’ve scored three tries through Dylan Pietsch (2) and Tane Edmed.

Putting together some solid attacks, the Tahs have shown that they possess some exciting attacking talent in their squad.

Front and centre has been fullback Max Jorgensen, who has long been earmarked as a star for both the Tahs and Wallabies.

In attack, the fullback set up Pietsch’s first score with a beautiful dummy and offload that caught Petaia flat-footed and left him on his backside.

Overall, the 19-year-old was supremely impressive, but there will be one moment that he will feel didn’t go his way.

From a scrum, the Reds launched a strong power play that exposed the Tahs’ defence and had their back three scrambling.

Turning to chase down a kick from Reds winger Suliasi Vunivalu, Jorgensen was caught slightly out of position as he chased back to try to stop Petaia from scoring.

Seemingly successful with his first attempt, Jorgensen force the Reds fullback to knock on.

However, upon further review, referee James Doleman opted to send Jorgensen to the sin-bin and award the Reds a penalty try.

What did you make of the incident? Was it positive to see the referee reward the attacking team or was this one too close to call? Let us know in the comments below!
