Bro that blunt must have been gooood!Tonne blunt. We are out players, and stuck away from home for the whole season.
I expected us to be shit, so I'll take the wins when we get em.
And we got another one
Great post. Yep we would lose most games defending like that, but we just need to try and scratch some wins until we get our players back from round 8 on. If we could somehow roll Souths (big if) we’ll be 3/6 with Ken and Fusitua ready to roll!Let in some easy tries but showed they can score points - and entertain - when they throw the ball around and back themselves.
The forwards were awesome again - besides Burr he’s a fucken
Jamayne Tounua-Brown what a fucken find - 170m 24 tackles no misses
Blair runs for 150m
Harris 190m 42 tackles no misses
Katoa 150m 29 tackles no misses
Poasa, Murchie and King - solid off the bench again.
The halves were better today:
Nikorima - ran and caused the defence headaches in that first half.
Kakariki actually controlled the game nicely particularly in that stretch where we pulled away in the 2nd half.
The backline is average but Herbert was solid and Hiku was a positive injection despite a few blunders (lacking match fitness tbh)
We get Fusitua and Ken back and it’s a different story - although Beale has been solid.
Egan is growing better week by week - Lawton was the perfect injection.
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck another phenomenal work horse performance - every Run he threatens to break the line wide open but he never seems to do so. Didn’t do much in terms of playmaking either.
For a broken team - nights like this give us hope but it’s obvious we can’t hang with the better teams as we are.
SK looked very animated, the pressure was on and the boys hung in there.
