Watch National Rugby Championship NRC Live Streaming 2014 Perth Spirit vs Greater Sydney Rams match will be kick off at Adelaide Airport Stadium, Adelaide, Saturday 06 September 2014 online, Time 14:00 AEDT and its broadcast Online.
Our man Brett McKay hailed Perth’s game against Brisbane City as the game of the tournament so far. Even though they lost, Perth would be buoyed by some good showings in their two hitouts so far, and will be keen to show up the point-less Rams in front of the good people of Adelaide.
It might not just be in front of the good people of Adelaide either, with talk being bandied about that this game might be live streamed, which would be welcome news after the initial disappointment of no streams.
Kyle Godwin might be a very crucial cog of the Perth setup, but it looks like the travel might have gotten the better of him and Ben McCalman this week. They haven’t announced their team yet, but the word is that neither will be named.
They also lose Matt Hodgson, who is on Wallaby duty this week, but should retain the rest of their Force stars. Hodgson is a bit of a body blow, and his pilfering work will be just as missed as his leadership around the park. This presents a huge opportunity for the Rams.
They will need that opportunity too, having only managed 20 points in their two games thus far, the least of any team in the competition. The talent is undoubtedly there in the Greater Sydney squad, but capitalising on it this weekend is crucial if they’re going to get their season moving in the right direction.
It’s also a great opportunity for all South Australian rugby fans to get to a high quality game and get behind a team whichever one you choose.
