Reality check

Post by mikey » Mon 06 Aug, 2012 9:12 pm

I see everyone lighting up like a kid in a candy store after Marika's efforts tonight.

I do agree his hit on Sandow was fantastic as was the 4 try effort.

What got us there though was the Bunj returning to his natural game. There is no coincedence that the game took on a totally different complexion when the Bunj just said 'F it', let's attack'

Yes you are right.
But does this mean we will see faults at 6 for the rest of the year?
Can't see it working against a real team.

It does make you wonder why he hasn't done it every other week. Why only now?

Exactly what happened. Wonder if he will be in trouble for not following the coachs' plan?

I think it's because they wanted him to play a distributing role. But why would you turn your best attacking weapon into a paper boy? It makes no sense. Attack uber alles Bunj.

That's it hey. Sheens's tactics haven't been working. As soon as Farah and Benji said "Forwards run forward. We'll just throw it to Koroibete, Ayshford and Utai" we slayed it.

New coach please.

Please don't turn this into an agenda against Sheens Mr Kitty. The coach's role is to develop the team even if things don't work out.

They get out there to start the game, with Sheens words still ringing in their ears...in no time its 22- 6 their way.

2nd half....Sheens words still in their ears, 3 mins in...Parra score.

Boys behind tryline during conversion, Benji: *Forget what Tim says, just follow my lead"

Bang bang bang....40 odd points later

Benj fired up for tonight's game, it was a pleasure to watch and the wings backed him up.
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters in the end.

I doubt it happened like that but that made me laugh.

Sorry I disagree. You don't know what Sheens said. You don't know what theplans were. What you do know is Bunj played great and the shackles were off. Let's all hope that's the way he keeps on playing as long as he is with the Tigers. We need to get another organising 1/2 back because that isn't the Bunj's way.

It makes a big difference when Benji has players with SPEED to hit in the backline, like Marika.

Didn't have a choice when you are 22-6 down , attack or you are gone

Can we figure out a game plan that can beat the Saints

I tghink there was graffiti on both walls - it couyld have gone either way. You're right in saying the reality check part but it is good to see a positive step rather than a negative one at last.
