I think Madge is finally weeding that mental weakness out of us on the back of Hastings.
Mmm I don’t get that one…Yes we need Hastings because hes the difference between winning and losing..We all know that .. but Madge can’t take credit for that..or for weeding out the mental weaknesses of the rest - as seen in the second half
Plain and simple we lost Hastings so we lost our way… remember how we were before he arrived ..that second half had nothing to do with injuries..We also lost Liddle but the only difference that made was a positive one..I havnt had time to rewatch the game but I’m sure I saw Liddle standing over Benjis brother just watching within reaching distance as he turned out of a tackle and scored a try..I dont think there’s much chance of seeIng Liddle again this year ..unless black Jesus gos to 6
I was impressed with the slickness of our backline in the first half and to finish off with an amazing try to Maimalo..I know it was against weak opposition but it was great to see our backline nail that. You normally only see that from top 4.
And we won. In fact it was close to a towelling so I don’t know what the long faces are for..granted we will play better with some of the others back. But that second half was because we lost Hastings not because of injuries.
We need a legit second playmaker in the halves
