You know me I’m not afraid to call out the golden boys of the forum.
OK, so… I’m sitting here thinking how well Grant is playing in the second half and how involved he is and just making meters when we need them and I start thinking I can’t wait for Matalino to come on for his stint to finish the game.
Expecting a big finish, he’s had a big rest his experience and leadership should be a big boost, boy was I in for disappointment!
Within a minute he gives away a penalty that led to Parras winning points.
Then he gets tackled on the last at a crucial moment in the game that pretty much lost it for us right then and there.
Now, I didn’t expect him to come on and win us the game, but after seeing what Grant did I was expecting him to at least carry that on but to me he almost single handedly lost us the game with those two plays.
The other one was Nofo, two plays.
1. Not getting to that ball for French’s try.
2. Not wrapping up the ball for the offload that led to the other Parra try.
Not good enough, Reggie’s for you.
It’s these poor efforts and dumb plays that have cost us.
Can’t say Matulino has been all that impressive so far, I’m sure there will be defenders and excuse makers but I’m calling it as I see it.
