A common theme in all 3 losses is the opposition fowards dominating the games. I dont refer to just outsized & outskilled, the major part is out enthused which is tough to call but true. Every team has a motivator & for mine Gift is the man at the Seaeagles, not only his performance but he lifts those around him. His toughness is also underrated in recent seasons as his aggressive defence rubs off on the teammates adding steel that is sorely missing atm. The added loss of our powerhouse T Rex means we lack punch on that left edge & our biggest , most destructive foward. Kingy is trying but imo is just average, Kite needs a rocket but can still play when not doing his Spice girls routine, Joe was good in his 1st game back, Darcy is off with the fairies in contract land, Buhrer not near best but showing glimpses of quality, Ballin playing the workhorse role - solid imo, Choc not at his best & starting to skip sideways looking to ball play - best asset is his driving runs with that quick play the ball, the rest all just filling a hole atm. Wont be at full strength for a bit so hope these fowards pick up the most valuable missing component atm - attitude. Ppl can blame the backs all day, but till these fowards turn up we wont win a game.
