So besides using Albert Vete as the thread pic did you have any concerns? Thoughts?

Man of the Match?
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck take off from where he left last year?
Isaac Luke answering our dummy half prays?
Blake Ayshford the right choice?
Was Jeff Robson a good buy?
Which forwards impressed you?
Outside back learnt how to tackle yet?
Did the bench have the desired effect? Did Cappy utilise them properly?
Anyone go to the game? How was the stadium?

Discuss...

Its a liability having Manu on the wing. We just cant afford that if we cannot afford to carry Konrad's defensive liabilities. Manu to the bench to come on as a battering ram for mine.

So if the tigers knocked that back how the fuck does the ball get to Robson 5m in front of him?
Still tigers ball and a shit performance but

We only got back into it when the Tigers started serving it up to us on a platter. I'd think that if they didn't play dropsies they'd have gone on to do us proper.

Bull and our lame starting second row let their forwards walk all over us. We had 0 impact. Gavet was great to start but he was playing a lone hand. It wasnt until Thompson and Lisone/Mutts came on that we started having SOME impact on the game. Honestly I think the comeback will shield Cappy from some VERY harsh questions.

Horrible performance. The second half performance shouldn't gloss over anything.

Our outside backs are absolutely killing us.

They can't tackle, and then when we finally build some momentum they can't hold onto the ball and we waste 10 minutes defending when we had the momentum and should have been pressing home the advantage,

good to see there was some fight in the warriors to nearly comeback after half time, but I don't think that had anything to do with the coach,

disappointed in the defensive effort, we really are in the shit if we continue to defend like that this year.

I thought Issac Luke looked disinterested thoughout most of the game and deserves a kick up the ass.

Mannering, Mutts, Lisone and Thompson played the best for us tonight.
