Didn't,t Woods enjoy that tonight ! You can tell he is enjoying playing with a pack ,that has some aggression and mongrel in it.I don't think many teams are going to get on top of us this year

3 at least. Simona, Gavet and Woods. Gavet should be the only one in trouble I'd think though. Not sure what woods even did??

I want to comment specifically on Sue. He is a man amongst boys out there. Wow has he put some muscle on an already very good frame. He's in for a huge season I feel.

Do not understate the influence Potter had on that win!

There was an obvious game plan there to get in their face and bash them. We did not let them dominate the ruck and we did not let them steamroll us. We niggled them and put them off their game.

We scored tries from set plays. Sauce was held back for a long time before being injected back into the game and Ava was not used until mid way through the second half to maximise impact when their big guys tired.

The boys stood up and got in their face. Looking at Brooks get stuck into the Souths player on the ground after the challenge really made my hairs stand on end.

Hats off to you Mr Potter...it doesn't make a season but it is a great start!

Really impressed with our bench, it really adds some impact and Taupau, Sue and Gavet were all great and Ava although only used sparingly bent the line when he hit it too.

Sue has transformed physically during the offseason, there's not one ounce of fat on him and he looks so powerful through the thighs, hips and chest now. There was one run where he powered over the top of Burgess late in the game which was brilliant to see.

Just hope we don't lose anyone to suspension from tonight.
I think Gavet is in trouble. Lucky not to be sent I thought.

Well, I hope Gavet isn't in too much hot water. He only used his knee on the arm of the Souths player to make him release his grip.

You have to say Taupau and Gravet have added so much aggression and spirit to the team.

Love having forwards bending the line and hitting in packs.

Souths were battered and bruised and should be easy pickings who ever plays them next week.

Last year Sue, Ava,Thompson gained valuable experience which will be a huge benefit tonight.

love 4 big forwards on the bench.

Loved watching Woods smile and giving it to Souths. Need more of that from Woods

Blair best game for us
Living the dream and praying for another premiership

We finally played like the team that I hate, and that is manly. So good to see our boys stand up for each other.

I'm stunned, tbh. I really hope they can keep this up for the season because it's so refreshing to have a structured, intimidating team to follow again, after all the years of soft defence and ad lib plays that broke down more often than not. Woods was amazing, he was really in a different head-space tonight - playing and behaving like he was possessed by Blocker Roach and Dallas Donnelly rolled into one! I think he is so happy because he finally has some decent forwards around him to share the load. He has been trying to hold the pack up on his own for so long.

In 15 years of our existence, I have NEVER seen us bash another team like we did tonight. Still can't believe it. What a wonderful sight. :sign:

I have to agree ,they make a real impact when they come on.
Me too Taupau, Gavet and Sue are just great; and yes surely the best bench in the comp. Gavet and Taupau are just what the team has been missing.

That's what stood out for me. I can't remember the last time our blokes came rushing in to protect their own!

On a side note, how's that nines form that had everyone predicting the end of the world looking now?

That was a brilliant performance, I was a bit worried how we would pull up with the short turn-around after that 40 degree heat last week but the guys ripped in and were in Souffs' faces all night.

We got under their skin, forced stupid errors and penalties from them, it was great! :D

Well done Tigers, brilliant display.

My feelings exactly! I think Potter proved a big point tonight, one that says "Now you see what I've been saying?!"

Sure the flashy plays of the past were exciting when they came off, but in the grand scheme the frustration experienced at things going wrong at pivotal times during games far outweighed these and are no match for this new style.

We now get great aggressive forwards as well as exciting backs and half and I don't miss the dazzle one bit.
