    I watched a bit of the game again this morning. Benji was very impressive how he skipped across the defence and hit random runners or poked through the line with a dummy or a shimmy. Dylbo has a lot to learn just to match the speed that Benji plays at.

    I think he has the talent to be as good as his kiwi mate. Might take another year or so to play with confidence.

    Just don't lock the gameday thread. It's the easiest thing in the world.

    Good win

    Positive signs were our middle didn’t let any tries in as usual and they were all scored out wide.

    Hoffman contributed to 3 tries (he missed 8 tackles), doesn’t seem quick enough to move across and provide cover. But also both our starting centres are out.

    While Moses kicking game was great, controlled the game nicely.

    Considering we have gone game / rep round / game / bye / game, it’s probably expected we wouId be a bit “rusty”, but overall it was a good effort.

    No disagreements with any of this, but we're going to have to play better than that if we're going to get revenge over Manly at Blottoland.

    Over on the right I thought Hoffman has been a pretty good defender. It probably has to do with the fact that Sivo isn't a strong communicator on that side of the field. If Hoffman is over on the right today and Jennings was in the side I don't think we leak as many points as we did. The loss of Jennings is very noticeable in defence.

    Just remember
    N.Cleary was far more hyped up and most think he is a dud.
    Same goes for A.Taylor.

    D.Brown shows promise and is a kid but his 2 games back have been below W.Smith standard. We are a team destined for finals footy. If he takes a while to find his feet he will be replaced with Salmon who was just starting to find his.
    D.Brown is a long term prospect and I reckon this year was seen as a rebuild. Unsure if most thought we could take the title. If so we prob hang onto Norman.

    Solid without being spectacular, but if he did less tackling he might run more. Needs more involved middles to help in that regard.
