I've been explaining to all that Matai has been well below his best most of the year. Last night put an exclamation mark on my theory as he was awful. Defensively he was flat footed, and had bad reads. He was responsible for letting in three of the first 5 tries. His massive hits sometimes cloud his defensive deficiencies, and his attack with that big left foot step has been almost non existent this year. Let's hope the off season allows him to recover from his niggling injuries and he can return to the form of the first 10 rounds last year where he was arguably the form centre in the comp.
