Had to laugh at Will Smith the grub knocking on the ball. Sweet sweet justice for such a pathetic play. Terrible sportsmanship. While Bully passed the ball forward next set he did get the last laugh with that try.
Hiku must never play fullback again. Some awful brainfarts back there especially stepping towards the sideline FML!
Beale did well. Was caught out in defence a bit but looks to offer more there than Hiku and has better offense. Would play him left centre to utilise his killer right step but in the centres anywhere for now.
Should have done much better but just happy to bounce back, away from home and get the win...
Dogshit game, but the most important two points of the year for mine.
He wasn’t MoM or anything, but I am so impressed with how clean Maumalo’s decision making is this year and how few mistakes he is making. I have been very critical of him in the past. Really happy with Gerard.
Big game players rise when faced with adversity. Luke did it tonight. SJ and RTS would have created 2-3 big plays, which would have put the distance between the two teams.
Take $2000000 worth of x factor out of your team and it is going to look ugly, so really happy to win
Latrell last week, Will Smith this week. There needs to be judiciary for cheating...seriously
Probably the best game defensively for Mason Lino. Gerard Beale has to be centre no doubt about him. Not pretty but you need these ugly wins. Isaac Luke is just amazing, super human effort. Good work from the wingers too.
Worst fucking call of the season. How the fuck can u gain a penalty for bouncing the ball on a player lying prone on the ground? Green should of asked that ref "ok who did he stop him passing the ball to?......a worm?"
That was as close to taking a soccer dive as it gets. Disgraceful that is is a penalty. Stepping forward with the ball in hand then throwing it at a player on the ground.. Out of the way till you take the step.
Blatant cheating.. And exposed the refs. All of them
What we’re missing are dominant middle runners.
Mannering retiring if that’s expected offload Johnson and Hiku/Kata and buy Taupau and Klemmer.
Imagine that pack
Taupau Harris Pulu Blair
With Paasi Gavet Afoa and Roche off bench.
Ma’u and Matagi bullies us tonight.
