That was the worst first 60 min I've ever seen from us at Brookie in 15 yrs. The players and coaching staff must be held directly responsible for this loss - our performance today was woeful. I don't care if we only lost by 4, I don't care if we were playing the Broncos, I don't care if we should have scored at the end, and I certainly don't care about the comeback. It was simply not good enough, and too little, too late. Here were the problems: 1. Matai. Too dumb, too ill-discliplined, too bad defensively to play 1st grade. See my 'Matai' post. 2. Orford / Des. Why was Orford playing if he was only 50%??? In his post-match interview, Des said that his 'presence' was needed on the field. Ohhhh, was that the presence that meant no running with the ball, shocking general play kicking, and inability to get a repeat set of six? Monas should have started at half, simple as that. 3. Forwards. Geez, they were all asleep, Beaver and BK included. Bryant had a shocker. King was nowhere to be seen. Choc was quiet. Do these guys want to stand up or what? They got man-handled all day. What was the deal with all the no-look passing in the first half? 4. Last tackle options - I go on about this every week. Why did it take 60 min for Orford to put up a bomb? We don't know what we're doing half the time.
