    Mary dumbs them all down with is power game plan. Line speed was the big reason for the first half problems. One out running and not marking up were the other main problems.

    The Ref only looked at one team in the first half.

    Thank you, that was my general impression too.

    Did anyone else notice this?

    Dont like to point the finger at any of our boys but when Sims and if JDB does return Latimore has to be the first to go...I was a fan a few years back but sorry I think his better days are past now just doesnt offer much....Laurie, Host and Luc are developing nicely and deserve their retention.....

    Hmm...I’m not sure about that.

    I thought the foot went out - they showed the replay on Fox and it looked like it went out.

    Positives

    Thought Host, Lawrie and Leilua all had very impressive games.

    Norman and Hunt are excellent halves.

    Hunt tries too hard sometimes.

    Dufty is amazing on his day. If he improves his catching and general handling he will play Fullback for us for a long time.

    Our defence was very good.

    Negatives

    Possible injury to Hunt.

    Side was not mentally prepared for Roosters first half onslaught.

    Too many handling errors gifted Roosters scoring opportunities.

    Our wingers try very hard but are 1 to 2 levels below the wingers of most top 8 sides.

    Mary needs to better utilise his bench.

    No more backs on the bench.

    No more Lats, time to put him out to pasture. Time to play Kerr or Timm.

    Speaking of last tackle plays, where was Norman? He was exceptionally quiet today. All the pressure (and ball) seemed to head Hunt’s way,

    Well said.
    I would be willing to give Pereira another chance but I agree Rav needs to be dropped

    Lol definately not, they are dynamite, we held on ok against an avalanche of possession in that first half, gallant stuff which hopefully they learn from for next time.

    Agree on point 8 definately, Latimore isn't providing what he has done for us in the past, surely a keen young bloke could add something from the bench.

    Dufty needs to follow his every run.
