what made me happy

The defense.

I cant recall the last time i saw a better defensive effort than that.

Real starch and numbers in defense and it didnt stop.

A full 80 mins against a team with some real weapons and they didnt stop.

And.......every time a real effort was needed BANG....they responded.

I reckon there were about 10 critical tackles that had to be made, and they all were, And not just tackles but bashed them as well......Brooksie did a couple, so did Bunji, Rooo chow and Mats as well.

So stoked we have a scrapping team that puts body on line....well done IC and the boys.

Agree.
There were quite a few Rooster players grimacing in pain when we tackled them. Haven't seen that for a very long time.

Who got Cronk on the nose? There was a little bit of claret there.

It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

The defence looke more composed. Seemed like there was confidence in each other to make the one on one tackles. Significant improvement.
