Reds disappointed with discipline against Brumbies

Queensland Reds captain James Slipper has admitted that their discipline against the Brumbies cost them dearly.

The Reds ended up on the wrong side a of 17-8 penalty count and had James Horwill yellow carded twice which earned him a red card.

The 2011 Super Rugby champions could only muster a first half penalty from new signing Karmichael Hunt in the match while the Brumbies ran in six tries earning them a 47-3 bonus victory.

“It’s obviously not the way we wanted to start the season but these are the cards we’re dealt and it’s pretty disappointing,” Reds skipper James Slipper said.

“Ill discipline really hurt us and it was something we had spoken about before the game and once again we start off the year with a lot of penalties and you can’t win games with that sort of discipline.”

The Reds return home to Brisbane where they will host the Western Force in Round 2.
