    Hey so I thought we played well in the loss to the chickens! Marty really hooked in and our forwards absolutely demolished theirs, running for 500 more metres or something! Suli was solid as was Uate who I thought had great impact in kick returns. Lane looks great at second row, partnering the excellent Joel Thompson. Api was his usual solid self and the halves partnering of DCE and Walker looked like if could flourish given time. Walker didn’t look out of place with the 6 on his back and had some really good runs like and old fashioned inside centre. AFB is a beast. Jake was solid. Sure we lost but the team looked like they were playing their guts out and really putting in for each other. Nucleus of a good side!

        Can't fault the players for effort this game, they put in 100% and it was a narrow loss in the end. A different season with luck on our side would have had the calls go our way...

        Still, the roosters were far from great.

        Suli was a positive and Rorters DIDN'T BOMB UATE. Probably the first team this year to not bomb Uate

          Penny let the Hyphenator steamroll him for Easts' third try. I'm still not sold on him as being a starting player.

          Uate was phenomal scored trys when one on one with ferguson which is not easy, he was the reason we where still in the game.
          Taupau and Fonua Blake, WOW, AFB is getting better every week and played superb.
          Ummm did you forget SHaun Lane got completely run over by hargraves to score his try. Lane is good in attack for metres, needs to lift his defence.

          Did you see the pic that shows JWH raising his elbow and sticking it into Lane's throat? Kind of explains why he fell off the tackle.

            If DCE kicks that goal from in front we take it to extra time

            If Victor Radley doesn't pull off that try saver we win.

            Forwards really lifted and gave us a big shot at it. Unfortunately just too many unforced errors undid their good work. If we cut out those errors and get completions up AND Tommy catches the ball this week then we are a good show at rolling the Ponies.

            No and hope not Mark, thinking 63 more frustrating games to watch.
