Blake Austin

Post by tw33k » Mon 21 Apr, 2014 6:17 pm

He needs to start at 6 and Anasta dropped. From the moment he went on, he took control. He scored a solo try right on half-time which got us back into the game. He directed traffic beautifully and set it up fro Brookes to kick the field goal. And what about the penalty from the short kick off. Anasta didn't know what to do til Blake told him to give the ball to Richards and take the 2.

No doubt Blake Austin should be our 6.

I dunno I think he was awesome at hooker and we need one for the next few games. I dunno who'd be more effective out of Luani and Anasta.

Yeh I agree. But I also said in another thread that I thought he could do well at dummy half with farah out and think he did so there today. I'd leave him in that role until farah is back and then no 6 from then...

I don't think anyone would disagree with you, but I can't see us dropping Anasta nor wasting a bench spot with him. Can't see Potter making the tough call here.

Not sure what to do, maybe Austin at 9? not that Luani was terrible or anything.

Austin will stay at 9 until Farah is back. Hopefully then Potter bites the bullet and we never see anasta again.

Agree Anasta is a joke - time and time again he is woeful and gets a position for no reason

I hear what you're saying about playing Black at 9 but I didn't see Luani do a whole lot wrong. I'm keen to see his stats.
Potter isn't silly, he saw what we saw when Blake came on. Dropping Anasta would be a tough decision but he's made them before

I'd have Austin starting for sure, I love his work rate and involvement, he's always around the ball.

I agree it should be at hooker until Robbie is fit, then shift him to 6 and either bench Anasta or drop him unfortunately.

I don't think that will happen though, and I don't think Braith wants to move to 2nd row or lock.

In our full strength side, it should be a straight swap, Austin for Braith.

Yeah he must have loved Austin at hooker because he didn't let Luani back in there for the rest of the game. When Luani came back on it was as a backrower. He did well there though, a couple of nice runs.

My preference would be Blake at 6, Luani at 9 amd Braith at LRO. However, I suspect Potter will keep picking Braith so Austin at 9 for me.

Austin was very good, his try turned the game (again :) ) .
IMHO he should be our 5/8, his running game is much better than Anasta's.

Austin needs to be in the starting lineup somewhere.

100% agree. The gme totally shifted from a mess to looking the goods when Austin came on. There is no doubting his abilty compared to Anasta and as ive said in another thread, Anasta/Brooks calming affect excuse is dead.

We fought hard but there is no doubt in the world, we got lucky. There was no attack with anasta/Brooks. Nothing.

The forwards were the difference.

Austin MUST be special because he played his first ever game at hooker in a pressure cooker in front of 50k and was close to best on ground. Only real talents can adapt like that.

Didn't think of that, but it would have been a challenge that he took in both hands and chocked it to death. Stocked.
