    We bought Orford to WIN us the tight games.

    Last night he took three of the dumbest options available with his last three touches - s pathetic grubber straight to Best, an uncontested bomb, and an intercept.

    Far from winning the game, he lost it for us, though we whouldn't have been in a position of coming from behind if we had TWO DECENT STARTING PROPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    He owes us one.

    Yeah and if Matai hadnt of dropped six thousand ****ing balls, maybe he cost us the game, or maybe Stewart throwing a flick pass into the grandstand when a two hander would have put Roberston in the corner, maybe he cost us the game.

    Orford chocked - something that has been on his head for a while. I really hope it was a one off for us.

    Catch up footy does funny things to you. Had head not taken the intercept it was a three on one. Also note that Stewart had tried to barge over the play before, resulting in a slow play the ball and time for them to get set on the line. Had it come the play before it could have been a different outcome.

    Too be honest I think king has picked up his game 10 fold in recent appearances. Kite also has a little more agression in his game. I won't blame those two in the last three games.

    Orford just isn't living up to his price tag. As hard as it is too admit. Ill give him time but we we're told round 6, and those 3 mentioned mistakes cost us the game in my opinion.
