Paseka went down early,Aloiai off early second with a shoulder and then Jake HIA.
We hung on,it wasn't pretty,but jeez,what do you expect.
We needed the win and we live to fight another week.
It’s simple what happened. Losing a front rower in the opening two minutes completely destroys your middle rotation; that’s bad enough. Compound that with losing Aloiai (who you need to play longer minutes) and you’re in trouble. Compound that with losing Jake and you’re in massive trouble. Have a 33 year old journeyman plodder in the middle who was gassed early in the 2nd half as one of the guys trying to cover for the injuries, you’re ****ed!What the F$$k just nearly happened even though we won I am speechless just what happened in the second half.
