Yeah Im with you...whilst a win would have been nice, in particular the second half effort was there.....if Ramsays try would have stuck (bloody unlucky that ball bounced up and hit Birds elbow) we would be celebrating a win today imo......we have to be realistic after just 3 trials and one comp game the inept coaching and poor management of players over the past years will not be swept away immediately....if we show the committment and effort each week irrespective of the result our culture and dna will start heading back to where it once wasI'm happy after round 1.
Not with the result or the amount of errors but with the attitude, effort, linespeed and sustained commitment to the Big Red V shown, especially from the pigs.
It was what I was hoping to see from a team that has spent an entire off season with an actual coach.
Combinations will eventuate, but if the effort remains then things will improve and results will come.
This is a team I can cheer for from the the heart again and that's a great start...
