Woeful performance. Who was our Man of the match?
A quick summary from my POV:
- Godinet and/or Mara need more minutes at dummy half while Friend is out. Elijah Taylor is in no way even a stop-gap number 9, he was so far off the pace. Defensively adequate, but nowhere near NRL level in terms of his distribution.
- Johnson needs to back to basics. No flashy shit, no running across field. Concentrate on passing, kicking, and territory. Once he has an established partnership with TL, and the side around him is performing, he can bring out the flair. At present, he's not even getting the basics right.
- Fringes, again look weak. Whether it's Hurrell or Mateo with lazy defence, the Eels outside backs ran riot.
- Steve Rapira, for someone supposedly strong on defence, he was a shadow of anything considered NRL standard. 13 tackles and 4 missed. Gubb could surely not do any worse.
Post match talk, go nuts...
