I believe one of the key contributing factors that has made us a greater team this year is mateship that is being created by the players. Simona and Nofoaluma, Taupau, Blair and Gavet, Brooks and Ted, Woods and Keithy. It reminds me of the old team we had, when we had alot of mateship flowing, before we lost Gibbs, beau, Heightening, Benji, Molz, Hodgson etc. It really helps as a fan to be connected more and feel as if the club is a family.
Maybe a factor, but the main factor is having a good 1, 7 and 9 playing behind a forward pack that is dominating their opponents.
Mateship is helpful no doubt. We also still technically have Tim Moltzen lol.
Band of Brothers. 2.0
i do agree. its awesome seeing the team celebrate tries - to me it shows a lot of camaraderie, which is a big thing in team sports.

yup. they’re all playing for each other. no one wants to let their team mate down.
the frustration when someone a player makes an error or the celebration when your teammate goes over. it’s so nice to watch.
not saying that it wasn’t there before, but this year it’s more intense. you don’t want to let your team mate beside you think that you’re not giving it all your.
guys like fulton, blair and taupau sort of connect different players to each other. there is a real sense of mateship and connection out there. it’s great to see that the players are just as frustrated as you when you let in a try or make and error and just as ecstatic as you when you score a try or stop one.
hope this lasts- through wins and losses.
