What exactly does he mean here? Surely they practised all week to play like that? He sounded surprised that they all turned up ready to have a crack.

Maybe they did go "off script" ;)
Gasnier mentioned on Super Saturday, that JT send word out to the boys after half time telling them to " Play any way you like, but don't concede points."
Interesting i thought! :ugeek:

A couple of weeks ago Brooksy slapped beau Scott hard across the face after a tackle and was ready to take him on haha. Scott was attacking his legs every kick which he didn't seem to like too much lol. Love that he stands up for himself

Yep, he is a smart one, and has been doing similar since midway through last season.

Very interesting Mama, but those that somehow think we played just the same as we did last month will not believe it, as I also have a little trouble doing so. But hey, he did change things up a little in the last couple of games, so you never know.

Either way, they played a little differently and didn't it look and feel good being a WT fan again on Friday night. Love being able to belt out Glory, Glory To The Tigers in the stands.

It was great seeing us play exciting footy FG. There were no Zzzzzzzzzzz, to be found anywhere. Wonderful attack and good defence too.
Loved watching the game. :P
