Let's not get carried away. Canberra is an abysmal side and they played abysmally. I was very concerned with the lack of go-forward at critical stages. If we struggle to get going against that Canberra rabble, how will we contend with the Dogs or Cowgirls? Of all the games seen this weekend that was by far the poorest quality. I guess some of it can be blamed on the conditions, but all? My thoughts on the forwards: Kite - solid but not spectacular. Showed he probably still can do what he did for us in 2006. 6/10. King - A very good game by his standards and if he can replicate that on a weekly basis we will have a solid starting pair. 6/10. G Stewart - surprised me I must admit. Tackles well and made some good breaks. 7/10 Menzies - didn't see enough of him but we know what he's capable of. Williamson - Did waht I predicted all week - tackles his heart out and let noone down. 7/10 Rose - This bloke is a huge concern to me. Gives away stupid penalties and is a massive liability in defence. 2/10 Bryant - Nothing spectacular but did nothing wrong either. 4/10. Hall - A good impression of the invisible man for much of his time on the field, so it's just as well he gave his bare balls a good scratch in the dressing shed so we took notice of him. 3/10 Monaghan - At the rsik of being howled down as a broken record, I really do question why we persist with this clown. Stilts the attack on a regular basis (Lyon blowing up at him inside the first ten minutes), runs backwards from dummy half and throws hospital passes, slowing up play, threw some shocking balls at his runners (this is a basic skill mastered by 12 year olds!!!!!!!) and how bad was the kicking game after Orford left the field? Seriosuly, 2/10 and bring on Ballin.
