Re: Forwards

Forwards dead set got dominated. We had more possession and a 9-2 penalty count and could only win by 1..just. Forwards get the ball from a standing start, stop before hitting the line, and run sideways because it looks like their scared of impact!! Dead set just tuck the ball under an arm and run. Galloway did it a few times and we got some good metres off the back if it!! We have classy backs but no roll on to get field position. Add to that a weak long kicking game and small ball carriers from kick returns, and were attacking 90% of the time from our own half. Frustrating!!!

Utai, Lawrence and tuqiri can change that, so if we hang in and get them back, we'll be a force.

Because he did what he always does, he got us out of trouble again! He gets belted but keeps on coming. If some of the other "players" on our team did the same, then we would be sitting much higher on the ladder. I can't believe people are so keen to dump him! Galloway had his customary one good game out of 6. Woods nearly gave away the game for us. Did Ellis play? But nooo, Fulton was to blame for everything that went wrong.

Agree with most of that although I think this year gal has been alot more consistent. When on the paddock.

Your kidding with the Ellis comment though. That's a good one mate

Is it just me, or do alot of posts on this forum end up being like a pee pee measuring contest?

Where did I say he was to blame for everything, FFS? Don't put words in my mouth.

Fulton is too small and is being used the wrong way - he makes no impact up the middle.

BTW Ellis played and played well if you didn't see that you weren't watching the same game.

Fulton doesn't deserve a first grade spot on his performances.

Yes he works hard. Yes he is a great footballer. Yes he runs great lines.

He is also not a forward who will grind us out of our own half and dominate the opposition.

Correct and this does not work in this day and age of the grapple etc...we are not getting quick play the balls and no-one is running onto the ball.

Lets not forget we had a three man bench last night with Lote going off.

Oh and er...we won. So regardless of whatever aspect of their game was better than ours we won. Yes their forwards may have made better metres but it came to nothing and when it mattered ours ran over theirs allowed Heino to get into great field position to play the ball and get it to Farah.

Yes we won ugly and yes we need to improve.

2 points are ours, 7th place is ours. Get over it and bring on NZ...

Think Woods might need a week off shortly . With BMM ,Groat or even Moors there . Just seems to be struggling a little . Mustn't be easy for one so young to play starting prop .

I don't think so Happy. He had poor ball security last night, but was still running hard at the line.
Just because it's soap doesn't mean it's clean.
