Gutsy effort by the boys so far.....Ive been saying it for a while now I wouldnt swap our wingers.....they both hit the line hard and are always a handful for the opposition in particular when running the ball back deep in our territory.....if our forwards ran with the same determination and gusto as these 2 blokes week in week out it would be for the betterment of the team.......would like to see Clune become more involved and run the ball to the line although probably a bit hard atm with Hunt and Normsn controlling the kicking game....anyhow whatever the outcome tonite glad to see our blokes aiming up....after all thats all we ask
Happy to send Mary out with a win.
But, moreso, was the change of attitude by the players i was impressed with. Makes you wonder if they were really tanking.
Everyone, including the much maligned of our playing group, showed what they can do. There was only one exception and I think that stuck out like dogs ....!
I think we have to sign Ellis and re-sign Host. They were both very good tonight. Even Korbin was a surprise.
Just wondering if anyone crapped their dacks when Rava passed to JP in goal??
Yes mate you raise some good points.....as I said yesterday theres no quick fix to our issues and Im not getting carried away with tonights win...but at least I'll sleep better after the events of the last 2 daysA
As good a honest toiler Periera is he showed on 2 to 3 occasions tonight that he didn't have the pace to go on with it. Mind you there is more problems in this side than him for sure. Bench still f--ked up, Host brought on too late & surely they had some time for Sailor as Cory Normal still showed nothing , even in a game where our forwards at least competed evenly. Best game from Simms and why or why didnt the coach use the Clune /Host running lines play before ? Confirms for us that we at least are a top 8 side.
Best. Week. Ever.
They do for sure. Tariq’s drop in form is mostly just down to two things. One is obviously he’s had a bad run with injuries but mostly imo it’s not having Widdop there. If our halves give him good ball he will start looking a lot better.Korbin looked good tonight.
I'm telling you, both the Sims bros have it in them to be excellent footballers.
Ding dong, the witch is dead!
Even to the last whistle of his final game Mary showed the dim-witted intransigence that has seen us become a by-word for mediocrity over the last 7 seasons. Picks Sailor on the bench but can't find an opportunity to use him (on a heavy track where the inclusion of an extra forward might have seemed a no-brainer ) and Host was introduced to the game far too late. Mind you, he made the most of his spell with some great defensive work and made good yards. Even Lawrie showed a bit of mongrel last night - like Linespeed said, it was like the players had a curse lifted from them. The curse of McGregor.
Thank f#ck he's gone. Now the boys can start to play football again.
