NRC Melbourne Rising vs Sydney Stars Live Stream 2015 Free Online Australia Rugby Championship Round 09 Online Free. Melbourne Rising vs Sydney Stars match will be kick off at Frankston Oval, Frankston, Australia, Sunday 18 October 2015 Online, Time 12:30 (AEDT) NRC Melbourne Rising vs Sydney Stars Live Streaming and its broadcast On Fox Sports.
The final match of the preliminary rounds of the 2015 NRC is also the culmination of the Frankston Festival of Football which involves high quality international 7s rugby over the weekend with the finals on the morning prior to this vital NRC encounter. And vital it is with plenty of finals implications possible.
For the Rising it’s pretty pure and simple. A win over the Stars will see them into the finals. If they do lose, however, they will have had to rely on the Rays to down the Eagles whilst still securing a bonus point of their own against the Stars. For the Stars, it’s similar. If they win then the Stars secure third spot. If they lose though, they will then need to have secured their own losing bonus point and have relied on the Rays to have denied the Eagles of a bonus point win. Plenty of ifs and buts, but it will all become a lot clearer for both teams come Sunday morning.
Ben Meehan has filled the boots of Nic Stirzaker more than capably this year and has been one of the Rising’s most dangerous and consistent players. Meehan loves a snipe and his attacking forays have created many a try for the Melbourne based team. Similarly for the Stars, Jake Gordan has been one of their most consistently high performing players in an inconsistent season. One final fling to secure their finals spot is key.
Jonah Placid and Tom Kingston have been two of the stars of the 2015 Buildcord NRC as counter attacking kings for their respective teams. As far as we know Kingston is still playing for a professional rugby contract and his form this year, including half a season as captain, indicates he shouldn’t be waiting long for it. Placid is on the cusp of going from prodigy to performer and Rebels fans should be enthused with his showings for the Rising this year.
