Bit tough on him in this format of the game. He was left to cover two or three at times.

Apart from that, we were very poor. Tedesco and Patterson were the exceptions.

All the new recruits looked good - Austin, Tapau, Patterson, Richards all did well.

Our defence was very poor.

Oh well its only a bit of fun.
Yep

Korro might have pace but he's positioning is terrible and find him a bit unco at times.
Other than that to many mistakes, was always going to be an uphill battle.
The footy is back yeeha

I think a lot of sides would of learnt a lot from watching the Titans play 9's

They appear to have put a lot of thought into their game particularly kick offs

Farah plays his worst when we have no halfback. He tries to overplay his hand all the time, with awful kicks and selfish options. It will be a very long year if Brooks get injured.

We looked like we put very little thought into how to play this format. Some great individuals plays from Tedesco, Patterson and Sirro. Team looked all over the shop, but if we get through injury free its a success.

While our defense and ball control remain a glaring issue, I think we lost because we didn't really put too much thought into our game plan.
It seems Potter is just letting the boys improvise, seems to not have payed off.

I was very impressed by Cory Patterson. He could really be a smokey for us for the NRL season

And we're back in the room. Why can't anyone on this site just watch and enjoy what is a kick about at the park. Why not just enjoy watching our and the other player throwing the ball around.

Stop taking everything so seriously.

I thought our completion rate was bad, Roosters are on 22%

I think beyond this format I liked what I saw for the NRL season.
Taupau, Gavet and Patterson will add a lot to our pack. Some much needed aggression and size.

Teddy was fantastic. Could be in for a good season. And I was also pleased with Austin, him and Brooks together could be a great halves pairing.

The score isn't that good an indication of the actual game. A couple of 50/50 penalties going the way of the Gold Coast and it completely changes the match.

You have to shoot the ball out wide in attack. No use reversing the play back into the centre- Robbie!!!

A few of the young blokes were amazing which was great to see.

Tedesco will be a superstar of the game by the end of the year if he stays fit.

I have said it before and I'll say it again. Koro is the worst defender I have seen play first grade. he literally has no Idea how to make a defensive read or tackle. He's not a first grader. I dont think he ever will be.

Farah continues to play dumb football. He seems almost incapable of making a good decision with the ball in hand and it seems to be getting worse

Gavet looked amazing as did Tapau with the ball but I'm a bit surprised no one commented on how poor his defense was. He fell off a lot of tackles.

Overall people writing this off as nothing are mistaken i think.

We still cant hold on to the ball, we still can't tackle and we can't control the speed of the game without giving away penalties.

I dunno Sabre , 5 tries to 1 was pretty true indication of the game

We should play the next game with Farah one off the ruck and Cherrington at dummy half.
