I must say i didn’t see this coming. Having the first 2 games at home grounds was always going to help but to be honest i didn’t think the Tigers would win both and play the way they did.
Tim Grant has surprised me with his play. Having watched him last year and having a few mates who are bunnies fans they all told me he was lazy and prone to giving away silly penalties. Now i know it’s only early in the season but he shown us the form he displayed a few years ago when he played SOO. Sure he’s given away the odd penalty but most of the side has been guilty of this but he has run hard, tackled hard and moved laterally which surprised me for such a big guy. I don’t see him playing SOO this year but i reckon he’s a certainty for City.
I didn’t know much about Aloiai until the trials but couldn’t be more impressed with what i’ve seen so far. If he keeps progressing i think Siro will be a bit nervous and will be looking over his shoulder. For me Aloiai’s big plus is his aggression which is controlled.
I don’t know if the tigers will win this weekend, i don’t know if we are going to have another year like 2015 but all i do know is i’m going to enjoy the wins and cheer on our Tigers.
Isn’t it good to have some positive post rather than everyone bagging each other.
