My Pros and Cons From Yesterday.....



  • Start with the cons……

    Tui looked a bit clunky when bringing the ball back. I’m probably used to seeing Tedesco flipping around everywhere so probably a bit harsh for the first game of the year…looked to be carrying some pudding but otherwise not too bad.

    Brooks seemed quiet. Needed to stamp his mark on the game but seemed to not quite hit it. Sin Bin was harsh when he clearly didn’t know where the ball was

    Atmosphere was down, but only due to being in the soul sucking cavern that is Homebush. If that game was at LO or CT then the atmosphere would’ve gone berserk and changed it completely.

    Stadium food…despite the promise that food would be more affordable for families, even with a members discount it was $28 for 2 hot dogs, a cold chips and two drinks…no thanks.

    Pros

    Played as a team on defence and it was heroic. Haven’t seen us defend like that in forever and it was amazing!!! Completely different team to ones in recent past.

    When big plays needed to be made the players made them, especially Marshall killing the game when we were one down.

    Every tackle and boo on Tedesco. It’s what the fans wanted and team delivered.

    Not too many bad choices in either attack or defence.


    In retrospect we punched above our weight yesterday, but to me it’s a sign of things to come. They played as a team and busted their backsides, and as a fan I couldn’t have been prouder. I’m not going to say shades of the team of 05 and pin my hopes to an improbable GF, but there is a lot to like about our team so far this year, and hopefully we can put in a good performance against Storm.

    Just my ramblings…still have no voice from cheering/booing

    Go Tigers!!!



  • Again with the Tui body shape comments 😒

    As for the atmosphere, it has to be one of the biggest myths that there is no atmosphere at ANZ if there are less then 80k. The atmosphere was great. Not sure where you were sitting.



  • Pros
    -They lasted the 80 minutes with high intensity and didn’t drop out for a single minute of the match

    • THE DEFENCE!!! Especially under pressure.
    • Our short kicking game was very good, lead by Marshall but Brooks was good as well. Some of the kicks into the corners were very impressive.
    • The offloads, especially by Marsters.
    • The strength and experience in the middle with lots of metres made, especially from Matulino and Packer (ET was sublime in defence).
      -Luke Brooks try-saver on Ferguson
      -MCK’s falcon assist
      -Teddy’s drop ball

    Cons

    • Our edge defence needs work but it was a massive improvement from previous years.
    • We needed a few quicker PTB’s to give our halves/backs more time and space. A few times the Roosters got on top of us through their quick PTB’s.
    • Our attack was clunky, but it is only the 1st round of the season and our starting 5/8 was injured the day before the match - I think that once combinations develop and they get used to each other’s games then our attack will be slick and firing.

    Once you add Nofoaluma, Aloiai, Reynolds and Liddle to the team and they start to gel, I think that we will be in the hunt for finals football!

    Should of got the $3 pies

    I don’t think they were 3 dollars. My girlfriend went to get a drink, came back and said they were 5 90.

    They were $3 I grabbed one…not bad…they are $3 for the rest of March only.



  • I dont think we did the comp any favs. The chooks will now drop someone we never heard of to free up a million bucks and buy burgess for 27 cents

    I thought Woods looked really pretty with his new doo last night.

    What was he thinking……
