Firstly thanks for sharing and secondly thanks for not poisoning the grass/staining the seat/bench you were sitting on.Just got home and still excited. The adrenalin made it an easy walk up Beacon Hill Road tonight. Almost wet my pants when Olam got belted! So many good moments. Still some work to do but that's attitude we need to bottle.
Johns is a solid defender though and good short kicker. Nothing brilliant but does his job.Our much maligned forwards were epic tonight. Allof them!
Our backline really misses The Shoe. Johns does nothing except pass the ball. Has he had a run in the past three matches?
Obviously with Sandwich back next week it will strengthen the backline. While Harpo played well tonight we are missing the speed that Koala brings.
Saab makes a difference. He is now hitting harder in defence, taking the tough runs and is a weapon in the air. The DCE kick from the scrum base to a charging Saab is a great play and one that is sadly neglected.
Jarome was quiet last night because we had there forwards measure.I am still more concerned about what happened vs Penrith and Newcastle.
I expect us to perform at home like we did vs Storm.
But it's a hard comp, near impossible to win 2 or 3 straight games. I guess we must learn and move on.
One thing has never changed in league, if the forwards are dominant it takes the pressure off the backs. I was so impressed by DCE last night, one of his greatest ever games.
How was Tualagi? I didn’t really notice him amongst a very impressive forward performance.
How does our back line miss Tisschu when he never plays? I think too many supporters fantasize about what he could be rather than what he has been to date.
I was also impressed with Saab tonight, he just doesn’t look like he is going to be rag-dolled anymore.
Sandwich for Varga.
Yeah, I found out later… completely missed the HIA incident and was thinking by half-time I hadn’t really noticed him. It may have been a blessing in disguise, and with his absence against the tigers I guess we will get some further idea.You didn't notice Tualagi because he didn't play after he got an HIA after 25 mins.
Manly were actually lucky Kelma went off as he defensively very lazy.
Bully was brilliant over the next 55 mins.
