Don't want to be the one to spoil the party so to speak, as our win today deserves full celebration. There is one concern (other than the obvious whipping boys) and that is the form of Tariq.
6 runs for 44 metres
Only 17 pcm
6 missed tackles (most by any player)
Anyone else feel this is a concern?
I thought the same last night, looks slow and ineffectual. I also thought Vaughan was looking slow. On more than one occasion he ran at the line then turned and backed into the defence. On the upside the rest of the pack was great. Lawrie looks like he is on a mission to be aggressive this year, Fui was hitting like a truck. I like the way Hook used Williame as an extra forward late in the game and Merrin also played well and made metres. Its noticeable that our line speed and aggression has made a huge difference to our defence.
