Two sets of six inside their 30m. Barely a single attacking threat amongst it. I can handle the slow play the ball, it's wet and we're playing Melbourne, but our halves need to go to the line. One coughed up ball from Shaun Johnson later, and it's curtains.
Cameron Smith was the difference tonight, the way he controls the ruck, looking right and left and jumps out of dummy half everytime only a few steps but it makes all the difference and brings his guys on to the ball is pure class
Luke has been a dud buy, i thought tonight he might finally show his worth, but nah
Looks like another joke season lads. As always, hope for the best but prepare for the worst. If apparently one of the best attacking sides on paper that we have ever had can't score more that two tries, we are screwed.
Recipe for a premiership is as simple as it has ever been. Everyone just play as hard as Mannering. Simple.
