Well thats exactly what was lacking against a bigger, stronger & (the disappointing part) more enthusiastic forward pack. It was men against boys in the trenches & this signified an ineffective platform for the young halves to compete....or even look likely. It also led to terrible field position. The scary thing is, the Roosters pack is every bit as powerful as Souths with extra mobility!! Theres no quick fix or blaming Toovey, this bloke has them amped up to the max, but when you have a popgun compared to a shotgun...your in trouble. Luaki should be considered imo...but looking like Chooks/Bunnies GF I hate to say........btw, thought Starling was the pick up front, had a real dig.
