Slater was awesome today.Had to be Maloney out of position and doing nothing wrong back there. I know against the storm he usually kicks to the sideline to negate Slater in open play. We didn't do that today, maybe because he wasn't there and it cost us. Slater made huge metres on us and we couldn't tackle him.
edit: just looked he made 214m, Manu made the second most at 187m
tell us if you were at the game
I always have more respect for the opinions of people who saw 100% of the contest
Alright, i'll bite. Unless you have perfect seats you will always get the better overall view of the game on television, particularly with MySky available for replays.
Mara for me. Everything went to shit when he went off. The forwards had no direction and lost their punch. The flow on effect is the back had little room to move in. When the dude did get back on it was too little too late, Mara would have had to pull out a Issac Luke 'Rambo' like performance to drag this game out of the fire. The late changes may have come because of the injuries and the bench being short. Still you cant leave a guy like that off the field, especially when you see the team go to mud after you pulled him off.
read in the other thread mannering copping some flak as a captain. what a load of rubbish. mannering WAS in the refs face on a few occasions..
