Thoughts about the game?

Post by citizen cub » Mon 30 Aug, 2010 10:33 am

What did you think about the yesterday's performance? I thought the attack was a little rushed at times, their outside backs put us under a lot pressure at times and I sometimes thought the only way to score was through a kick. General kicking was decent I thought, Farah from dummy half always seems to find the touch line and gain some much needed territory, Marshall put up a few good bombs, but again, put in some pointless kicks. Goal kicking was okay, Marshall nailed one from the sideline, but again missed a couple he should get. Defensively, we kept them at bay most of the time, apart from those 3 sets in which they scored tries. Heighington, Payten and Ellis were again, very solid in defence not missing many tackles. Overall, I'd give it a 7/10, still some stuff to work on, what do you reckon?

I think the virus that went through a few of the boys plus turning around from an energy sapping performance against the Eels showed their impact.

It was a composed if not polished performance.

A zero man bench at the end is a real concern with the short turnaround to Friday but thats another thread

I reckon the Tigers did enough to win. Even when Melbourne closed the gap at times I thought we had another gear to go into. Glad to get the win, but I was always confident yesterday.

I think the Pigs won us the game again....allowed Marshall and Farah to do their thing....

There were sets in the first and second half where we kept the Storm in their end built on great defence from Galloway Payten Dwyer Heignington....Ellis burried a few as usual and the whole team lifted....

Heighington's chase on a great Benji long kick at 16- 14 was class ...the Storm didn't make it to the 40 on that set...

The only time they came into it was on the back of a penalty and a mistake....

Great win considering injuries during the game...9.5 out of 10

It was substance over style with a few class touches from Benji. Great work from the guys up front too, all heart. Next week will be a real test though, espesh with the injuries we have sustained.

I thought at times they were actually a little flat, low in intensity. I put this down to last weekend’s match. I did not get the feel that this was at semi-final intensity.

They did enough to control the game and win. Forwards definitely laid the platform that allowed the playmakers the opportunities required.

In summary a good win.

I don't think you can discount the fact that the Storm have the 2nd best defensive in the league by a long way. To put 26 points on them is a pretty good effort, i think.
I wasn't sitting in my usual seat and watched from an odd angle so it was all a bit strange to me yesterday.

As for Marshall's kicking, I dont know if it was clear on tv but at the ground there was a real annoying blusterly cross breeze, not a good day to be kicking. Playing a side with the Australian 1 and 9 after a big effort the week before, we go down to a one man bench and still win pulling away in the straight.......I reckon we are all underestimating how good a performance that was.

He also caught one of Benji's flick passes - something that others have failed to do!

As i mentioned in other posts , Brown is a player that works on cofidence and right now his is doing great.

I have no doubt if he repeats that take 1 more time a lot of G_ _ FL teams will start looking to scout him.

That sort of take inspires the rest of the team , goes to show everyone is doing there little bit.
Benji and Robbie their bit , Fifita his and centres and wing theirs..not to mention our 2nd row which is 2nd to none..
So a collective effort , which is great to see .
