Good to see it live on TV. 18-6 at half time - Magpies lead. Disappointed with the standard. There really doesn’t seem to be anybody who is capable of taking it up a notch to NRL. I’ve heard big things on the forum about a couple of the boys but I don’t think there’s anybody in that team that is anywhere near ready for the big time. Talau’s try was nice, good skill, great footwork but he has been suspect in defence, and appears a little lazy to be truthful. Bradley has had a couple of high kicks go to his side and just watched them, not acceptable. Oliver Clark looks slow and cumbersome, fitness might be an issue for him. Jennings has been 50/50 had a few carries but has also watched a bomb or two bounce. He is struggling to defend beside Madden and if Saints go down that side all day they will win the game. Maddens defence is early Luke Brooks style. I don’t get why they put half backs out where traditional centres defend, it one of the hardest defensive positions on the park. I’d put him inside the edge back rower, make him improve his technique.
