The final score was way better than I was expecting, so I am not feeling too bad about the effort, in the second half at least - they hung in there. I really thought we'd get done by 70! Our softness up the middle is a real concern though.
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

We lost by 50 when Sheens coached too, but we didn't have near the injuries we do now. Forwards were brittle in the first half hour, particularly Blair, pettyborne and Thomson.

New name for Blair - wet paper

They ran through him like wet paper!

75 % of our players were not up to first grade level tonight. Potter has mission impossible. Crow saved Souths maybe we need Cruise to save Wests

Fulton was probably our best. Benji still smiling after the game....things never change
Koro seems like one of those players who needs to be surrounded by strong performers to look good. At this state he's not the kind of player who provides a spark - he needs others to give him a passage into a game.

Benji's missus was doing sideline commentary for MMM so that's probably why he cracked a smile. Wives will do it that to you...

When? Whilst we had some poor games under Sheens we never played this consistently bad.

No we played with consistently less heart under Sheens

Fulton was easily our best. He was the only bloke that could tackle

Koro has been hung out to dry often by Lawrence, and again tonight by Simona. I am not trying to find excuses for him, but Merrits first he did ok, and while I do agree he is a confidence player for the time being at least ( being so young), he is doing ok. Tonight we were soft in the centre, somewhere we have usually been fighting well above our weight, and there were few excuses for being so bad. Looking to Koro for a scapegoat is wrong.

I didn't say he was to blame, just making a general observation on him.
