Great to see all three grades back out at Brookie on a brilliant Sunday afternoon. Plenty of commentary on the Forum today regarding the 1st grade game so I won’t comment except to say that we definitely have some issues with a few of the guys in the tackling department. No names need to be mentioned as they know who they are but seriously boys, how about a bit more Manly mongrel and commitment in those one-on-one tackles. That’s all that’s missing.....come on. Also nice to hear someone else outside the club whinge and moan about the refereeing standards for a change!! I thought the best thing to come out of the day was the performance of a young prop called Ron Alovili in the NSW Cup. Big boy and a sledgehammer type runner and some brutal defence. Some of those big Parra guys were getting bumped off like ten pins. Only 24 years of age with a chequered history behind him ......so absolutely perfect for our transformation program that seems to work really well with these tough guys. If tv and co can get this kid firing, he would be a massive impact off the bench.
