Game was possibly not as high a standard as that seen in the past. New QLDers choked early. Hodges was very good for them. Bell was wasted on the wing and should replace Tait in the Centre. NSW forwards were superb - O'Meley, Ryan, Hindy and Beaver were all strong as was Big Willy. Beaver's defence was superb and he seems to do better when he can align himself wide. Kite was solid. Well done to Finch who did okay - will probably cost Orford a shot in the next game. Thank goodness we have the bye and can watch the others this weekend whilst we collect the 2 points.
