    Ponga is definitely a star, his defence twice on gutho was brillant, but he played like he was injured or still f**ked from his first full origin series

    We're winning ugly. I can at least save the rest of my beers for next week.

    I was 100% fine with that call tbh

    The fullback should be allowed to use his body to prevent a try and he definitely attempted to wrap his left arm

    I'll call that our best win of season. It was brutal and Knights fired up. Our defense went f**k you and smashed them. We have some nuts now. Eels of past roll over.

    We are very powerfull. Lane is one of the best 2nd rowers in game. What a game. Nikuore was brilliant as was Jnr and Manu.
    W.Blake has excellent power. Once Fergo is back along with Sivo those 3 will bust teams up.

    Any reason Terepo had little minutes?

    Alvaro was ok

    Tepai had little minutes and drops ball.

    With Evans back and Fergo I drop those 2. A bench of

    Taka
    Terepo
    Nikoure
    Gower

    Adds some real impact and dynamite.

    He's a gun, but he was lazy, for some reason.

    Ponga is a superstar, and way more talented than Gutherson - but Gutherson's fitness, leadership, and involvement put us in a winning position.

    Ponga did nothing of note, short of one line break - and that's not a knock on him; I'm just saying that he had little involvement.

    I definitely felt like we wasted a few chances. It's fine to grind, but you also have to be adventurous when it's on

    Tepai: 9 minutes, 2 runs for 16m, 5 tackles , 1 missed, 1 error. And got hooked

    Waqa Blake is pure class - speed, power, and strong defence. He is a gun, and I am so happy he's an Eel.

    I thought Terepo looked a little undercooked, but I would rather him out there, over Moeroa.

    Shaun Lane is an absolute weapon - such a great, great player.

    And Gutherson doesn't have game-breaking ability of Trbojevic, or Tedesco, but his fitness, leadership, and willingness to get involved are inspirational.

    Great tackle, but I don't agree, tbh.

    The problem is when we push a bit more with those chances we tend to start making errors, have f**k all ball and fall apart !

    I don't mind Ginnane. Better than the Brenton Speeds and Matt Nables of the world

    Gutho out of acting half (along with French) was a cornerstone of our 2017 success...

    Terepo: 18 minutes, 2 runs for 17m. He did make 15 tackles with no misses though.

    The use of our bench is a bit of a mystery to me.

    I feel like he's permanently concussed...

    Alvaro didnt seem to come back on either.

    I am glad Taka played well. I've always backed the guy amd defended him amongst everyones favourite scape goat. The guy just gives his all. His take from Klemmers kick was actually very good. That could of been very dangerous.

    No backrower in the game has his footwork either. Sad to see him go but I'd definitely have a strong flutter on him winning Man of Steel

    Do I need to find the Vae FFS video? Taka has some positives but giving his all is not one
