The point is we could have earlier in the pre season Geo , even if it was just the 9's

You must admit having our spine going into Rd 1 without a game together is concerning .......

Hopefully he plays. He's great to watch.
I guess that's the consequence of signing elsewhere so far out from the end of your current deal though.

They've been training since November, and most of them have played together for at least a year. It's not ideal, but can't be helped. Moses and Brooks have already had a bit of a run (AllStars and 9s), so it's more the hooker situation that is a bit concerning. But again - it is what it is.

Playing in match conditions is a completely different kettle of fish Ricksen

Easy for things to stick when no pressure is being applied

It would be easy in hindsight

But I was whinging about this the minute we picked the 9's squad for this very reason , things can change very quickly in a few weeks

And they sure as hell have , especially after today
