Just back from the game and I really do not want to bag any individual as it was great effort, but Idris looked two yards off the pace of the game, don’t get me wrong he looked trimmer than I have ever seen him, but he looked to be really plodding with the ball
He reminded me of tony williams, massive body but no grunt in running. Idris was a major disappointment. Turn him into a forward and tell him to run straight and hard. No way is he centre material.
Covering the sweep on the RHS defence. A couple of breaks there where centres and wingers were marking up on their men but the bog standard sweep play was creating an overlap and making them look terrible. Someone needs to take charge and call numbers on that side and we need to have the players backing each other to make one on one tackles.
Idris looked a bit disappointing to me and I didn’t think Kev offered much either. Grant I didn’t think had a lot of impact but I see he played long minutes so that’s to be expected. Aloiai needs more minutes and we should not be wasting so many interchanges on the back line.
Souths were terrible however, there were some real positives tonight.
Mcilwrick was good from dummy half and has to play big minutes until Liddle comes in off the bench. He is way better than Ballin at this stage of his career. Suli was great for a rookie and will only get better, fitter, faster and stronger as the season goes on.
We have been on the case for some time but MCK is the best centre at WT and its not even close. He could develop a powerful combination with Suli. Ava looked every bit a starting prop my word he goes hard and ET did the dirty work as a ball-playing defensive lock. I thought Brooks and Moses were good and Tedesco is close to the the best player in the NRL.
Idris is not ready has to play NSW cup for at least a month and could be a weapon late in the season but for now we are better served with Masters, Paseka or Fellise off the bench. Littlejohn was okay but Middle would be great off the bench.
Michael chee Kam has to play all year and develop in first grade he is a gun.
