Definitely not his best game of the season

The scary thing is I thought we were better with Halatau as hooker , but that may have had something to do with an even share of possession

We win tonight and this thread doesnt get created.
Its just the way things are. We start to look for reasons for failure(s)

I'm not a Farah advocate but without being biased that bloke is tough. He may not be the best leader we have but he wears his heart on his sleeve when his on the field.
I cant criticize him for tonights loss.. Having hardly any ball would destroy any teams hope of winning

Came up with a couple of poor defensive reads and a couple of attacking plays broke down at critical times. He wasn't the reason we lost though.

That is a scary thought Happy. But I'm glad you said that course I probably owe Halatau a compliment or 2. I've been pretty vocal in not wanting him in the team but he has been faultless this year. No lazy plays in defence and running hard in attack. I can't fault him and hope he continues.

That said we all know Farah is our hooker and rightly so. I think he will look at tonight's game and bounce back big time next week.

And vice versa if we pulled it out the fire , Farah would be well away from the MOTM votes in my opinion

This is how he will play in the future IMO. Take it or leave it, I don't think he has any improvement left in him anymore. Hope I'm wrong.

It will be interesting to watch him at Leichhardt next week. You would expect some enthusiasm and personality.

On this basis he was poor but he wasn't the reason why we lost although his missed tackle was as bad as it gets.

To be fair though I think he isn't as good as what the expectations are. He has lost a bit of speed and now he is a quality hooker but not a great player. I accept this and expect him to play like he did today. A missed tackle is bad but he didn't take too many wrong options. Happy for him to play like that if Brooks and Moses step up.

Steve to be fair I have stated I don't blame Farah for the loss.

Had some good scoots from dummy half , it seems JT wants our halves to control our kicking game , Farah's short kicking game close to the opposition line is non existent these Days.
Moses should not kick on the last tackle (fails to find open space ) IMO.
There is a structure JT is wanting Farah to play to .
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.
