Lawrence was really good. Grant was quality. Woods wasn’t that bad when he was out there. Ava was good. I thought Sironen was good as well.
We lost Sue who has been really good and that hit us but Halatau, Aloiai and Lovett did basically nothing between them. I also think we just don’t have the right make-up of players on the bench. Ava is our only bench prop.
I though Ava, Rowdy & Grant were very good for us. Aloiai runs & hits hard. Robbie was strong. Agree with a few posters tho that we haven’t got our bench right. If Woods, Sue & Siro are right for next week I wouldn’t mind seeing something like this:
To everyone who thought Grant was good i think you need to watch the game again, I’ve never seen a front rower get more dominated by the opposition than Grant did today.
To be fair Grant was everywhere in defence, running ghe length making 2 tackles before Uate crashed over (more than Milone could do who was walking back) and also played hooker at least 3 times, including a dummy half run. The guy gave his all today trying to lead from the front when we had 2 key guys down and out.
As to being more dominated, he made 148mtrs, 34 tackles. He wasn’t our issue today.
