The penalty was bewildering. Inexcusable.
But our attack is something that really needs to be addressed. I’ve defended Brooks in the past, but he was awful in the first half. He repeatedly took the wrong option and didn’t mount any pressure. We really needed someone to take control of this game when it was there for the taking and no one stood up.
I don’t know what the solution is to our attack, but we don’t look threatening at all close to the line. We don’t look like having anyone who is capable of busting the line from our own end. I wouldn’t mind seeing Milne have a shot, but we’re lacking genuine pace.
Goal kicking let us down last night and it looks like being a long term issue.
We didn’t deserve to lose tonight. Not the way we did. But I’m not convinced we deserved to win either. Like Cleary said a draw was probably a fair result.
