I just think that reality check today might give some of our players a wake up call.
I didn’t say anything however there was lots of lairing it up over in NZ. Players hollering it up to the crowd and carrying on after tries.Then some lots of talk in the press about how we can beat anyone on the comp. Teddy said there is something special happening here.
I would not say we went in over confident however I thought there was a bit too much tough talk for a side with plenty to prove. I think they expected Leichhardt and a big cowd would help get them over the line.
Well they got embarrassed today I think this could actually work In JT’s favour next year. This flogging wll be the lasting memory coming intopre season and it should really motivate everyone to imporve. Earlier in the year the boys talked it up about playing expansive footy and were put back in their box with 6 losses and no control in games.
This loss shows us how far we have to go if we want to really act on being something special, or beating anyone.
Im just saying if we had limped into the 8 it might have papered over some cracks. Dont get me wrong i would rather be there !!
