I'll give you some positives

1/ Half the side the top side is still in Australia (Keefy ,Brooks ,Rowdy ,Simona ,Sue ,Sirro ,Nofoaluma)

2/ Fortunately it wasn't an NRL game and wasn't worth much in terms of the season

3/ Some heads might role this time , this could be a good thing

4/ Show this video as a reminder to everyone a couple of days before Round 1

I'm personally glad we got a performance like this out of our system

jesus guys! chill out, you were singing their praises a week ago and even after YESTERDAYs game. and now we'll be hearing calls to sack potter and the whole team, especially that Farah guy.....

this forum always overreacts to absolutely anything, good or bad. lets just wait it out till at least round 2 or 3, if you want we can start calling for people's heads then.

Not sure I get that reference. Are saying I was a Benji supporter or Benji basher? I don't recall being either.

No one is calling for anybody to be sacked. But given that many of the errors - treble defensive reads, selfish Farah plays - were the reasons we struggled last year, there is a reason to be concerned. Of course, we all recognise that is one 9s and there is a long way to go but we can only comment on the football we see.

Yeh me too KS. Some his tackles were very good on big men. FF you do realise he is the guy with the 7 on his back don't you. Hasn't done a great deal wrong in defence bearing in mind its nine a side football.
If you love arm grabbing, Austin's your man.
I know it's only nines, but I've seen enough to say, we won't need this type of player.

The wasn't Farah's fault. Just because Benji is gone lets not focus on the next biggest player to blame. We lost that because of horrible defence.

Someone above said Austin made some try savers...? I saw him mis at least 8 tackles himself throwing out the arm. That is the first time I have seen him play. Very very worried about his defence.

Let's just recap. A state cup level second rower as a centre.
No half back in the squad
No game plan

All things that won't carry forward into our real season.

The only issue that counts is Terrible defence.

Lots of work to do before the season starts. Best to get the issues out early. I for one am very glad for the guys getting a hit out.

Mate you do realise that in 9s there is extra space meaning its very hard for a defender to make body tackles don't you?

Mate I do. But it's not good reading when you have more missed tackles than tackles made.

Regardless of the format the amount of simple one on one misses and poor defensive reads still seems to be an issue.
I was a little disappointed with Austin. I thought it would of been a great opportunity for him to play assertively and really direct the side around the park.

The thing I have gotten out of the Nines tournament is that they have shown enough to separate the men from the boys - we can see who'll be starting in State cup, and who really has put their hand up for first grade.

Tedesco, Patterson, Blair (well, 2 out of 3 games he was good), Richards, Tapau, have all shown themselves to be deserving of First grade spots.

Gavet, Austin, Koro, Thompson have all been shown up in defence - plenty of Arm grabs - most one-on-one tackles they were swatted away. Gavet to his credit was extremely strong in his runs though.

Interesting stuff - I think Potters selection headaches should be slowly disappearing - and the trial vs Cronulla next week should make the picture clearer still.

I don't really count the 2nd half here as the Tigers were refereed out of the game in the first half, and it's hard enough playing catch up when you have 40 minutes to work with, let alone 9 minutes.

Hope the Warriors win it all though. They play great footy and are crowd pleasers.

Having said that, I also put a lobster on them.... :D
