Siro is top class.

Benji was ordinary...appallingly bad kicks.

Teddy was great.

Tis team needs to become Siro's.

PS no missed tackles by Blair tonight apparently. That 7 or 8 less than last week.

Still lots of work to do on the edges in defence if we're going to win a few more games. The rain helped us in that department. A good spirited dig by the players tonight.

Well done again to the fans who made it out to the game. I hope they stamped your hand or took your name down just in case we have a sellout one week and you cant get tickets - you should have guaranteed seating as far as I'm concerned. It sounded like a very noisy crowd tonight. Cheers

disagree, he should go to lock. was a scratch better than his first few weeks this season. Problem is anasta is also brilliant at lock... dunno how he would go at 11 or 12....

We've just got so many good props in sue, buchanan, woods, groat and ava that i dont wanna add blair to them too cause it limits our prop depth.

Hitup - When your boss asks you why you arent at work on Monday, tell him a bloke called Tbone on the WTs forum said I could have a spell, for illness sustained in the act of showing courage and loyalty.

Anasta to me is a straight out no go anywhere in the pack. He's like a less hard working version of Fulton or conversely an older, slower, and less powerful version of Siro. I can live with him at 7 with a straight swap for Siro. Having said that, Siro was far better than Marshal in the halves again tonight.

@ tbone.

I thought the same thing. Anyone that made the game tonight are the lifeblood of the team. I just hope the boys walked the whole field as a big up to the fans. I thought I'd done some wet games in Melbourne but that rain seemed like solid sheets and there were still bodies on the hill. Good on ya!

Blair has to stay at prop. He can't shirk his duties in that position.

If Blair didn't try to throw a couple of hail mary's it would have been his best game for us. He has to stay at prop. His front on defence made a difference in the middle.

I've done a 360, keep blair at prop. Just realised that sue has decent experience in the back row and we need that grunt in the back row which we've been lacking. So, Woods, Blair, Groat, Ava and Buchanan. 5 prop rotation isn't too bad especially with the injuries we're bound to have.

the fact he wasnt the only one who continued to force the pass, I'd say this was apart of the game plan.

He played better tight!

Anasta and Marshall are both superfluous to requirements.

Watching the delayed telecast, all these mistakes being made have indicated to me that we are (were) going to lose, gonna be interesting to see the 50 minutes of gameplay cause so far it does not seem like a team that could pull off a win.

For those wondering the players did come around and thank the fans, was a really special atmosphere, and as I said in another thread, these small intense crowds are amazing.
