Bird was awesome.

Robbie excellent. He’s there for good now.


Harsh on Tate, Scott & Myles…

Give the Refs a 10/10 they were brilliant….

Creagh isn’t fit to run oranges for an under 9’s team!

Tate was one of Qlds best along with Hannant ,Myles and Harrison

Gallen and Bird were unbelieveable in a beaten side

Slater an 8 Don’t think so

One Qlder I was a touch disappointed in was Cronk Made some horrible reads in defence and kicking game barely average

Robbie will be there in game 2

Tate was awesome so was Thurston.

Uate 7? He let In 2 tries
2 for Jennings is quite harsh. I thought he played better than uate, & certainly Played better than carney

Did you watch the game? He was electric when he got the ball.

No way Slater deserved an 8…his worst game in well over a year.

Best players on the field were Tate, Hayne, Myles, Harrison, Bird…Gallen was good, as was Robbie and Tamou.

Far too many errors from the Blues…You have to be fully professional to beat this QLD side…who incidently as a team were not extraordinary tonight.

Tate was awesome. Copped a lot of criticism for his selection, but he was safe as a bank. Feel for Robbie, he busted his arse and was NSW best player

I didn’t think Gallen and Bird were that great… Surprisingly, I think Jennings (apart from his entrance to the brawl) and Hayne, along with Farah and Uate were NSW’s best. Carney and Pearce I didn’t notice much either

Slater had an off game and I didn’t think Smith did much special either.
