    He was awesome.

    Decent effort, but lets not kid ourselves. We are far off competing. Even with completions at 90%.

    Frizzell often causes the initial defensive error on the RHS

    Yet again he comes in and doesn’t shut down the play leaving a huge overlap coming at speed at the rest of the defensive line.

    Take out Lomax & Dufty and what have you got “bibbidi - bobbidi - boo”

    Put Keary in our side we flog them tonight. He is all class and the difference without question.

    Yes, we aren’t in the game against the top 4 or 5 sides. I’m sure this new spine will take some time but our forwards worry me, Takeaho probably ran for more metres than our pack combined. Vaughan a huge loss.

    Dufty last try. Classy. Said it before. Say it again. He's a half currently playing fullback.

    Agree we were on top physically for parts of that game and even kicked well tactically. We lost that game from the class of Keary and letting the ball bounce every single time. That was winnable.

    Im so pissed off at Vaughan at the minute.
    I know we played a depleted side, but a win is a win. He let us down big being so selfish.
    Anyway, change is needed next year both off and on the field.

    Massive mistake in hindsight putting sailor on. He stifled both Dufty and Lomax, he would often crab across the field instead of going out the back to Dufty. He would also run to the line and give Lomax a short ball instead of long early ball which is why Aubusson had him number in the second half. His bombs were predictable and often too low. Not trying to bag the kid, I just think he tried to hard when he got his chance in the second half

    He played so bad tonight though. I love him but he lost us the game tonight.

    Wondering whether for parts of the game Dufty should play at 6 and Sailor at 1

    Even then it looks like he throwing out a bucket of water.

    Cost us any chance of victory tonight with the non-attempt to take the high ball which was his and the roosters score.

    Aitken just plain hogs it with JP just needing to fall over the line to score.

    12 point turnaround right there...

    His passing has improved this year from nothing at all to a shovel on but it’s not fg centre material.

    As an aside, Brownie looks like the next Warriors coach so one less to replace Mary.
    Leaves probably just Paul Green if the board summons the courage to punt him at seasons end

    Usual boring 2nd half fade away.
    Aitken doing a number on us as usual by not attempting to catch a bomb that lands on top of him and not passing to an unmarked winger.
    We have the usual bomb it and hope at the end of every attacking set and when they pass it around most the time they all look lost. But it's ok, according to Benny Elias, Mary is safe as houses.
    Pffft, fkwits.
