Didn’t get to watch the game last night but managed to have a listen on triple m. At one stage Simona was in the clear but was chased down by the raiders fb. With recent talk of him losing his pace, did he show any glimpses of having regained any last night? I think last night is the first time he has been in the some space for a while now.
Wighton was chasing down Simona at the same rate he was chasing down Tedesco. Difference was Simona kicked it in field whereas Teddy had a crack and made it. Simona would have made it if he hadn’t tried to put it on for Tedesco. It’s a low percentage play that he needs to stop doing. He actually could have offloaded it to Tedesco where he was tbh.
I think he may have lost a little pace but the games where he outsped people and went the length he wasn’t up against noted speedsters either.
Simona broke two tackles (one was piss weak) before he started sprinting. Wighton was already in full flight. If Simona backed himself he was probably close to making it but seeing as he wasn’t really full clear and had people breathing down his neck he didn’t think he would make it.
I agree that it was a stupid idea to kick but geez…Teddy came very close to putting that down.
Teddy gets to his top speed probably as fast as anyone in the comp , but his top line speed wouldn’t put him in the top 10 players in the comp
I reckon if we could of reached through the TV on Monday Night most would of strangled Simona when he kicked for Teddy on tackle one LOL
