1 Thompson 9 __ Was best on field IMO. Safe backed up as a good fullback should and i actually think he will pressure our captain.
2 Fonua 7 __ the usual from the big marn. Ran hard doesnt shirk the work defended well. Would be higher but had some handling moments as per him.
3 Mom 5 ___ not the best first up game and while im a big fan i thought he was by far our player that had the least amount of impact.
4 Marsters 7 – thought he was solid and did som,e great things but struggled with involvement in the first half. He is a handful in attack his run from dummy half down the blindside was pretty to watch.
5 Jennings 6 __ Ran the ball well ,hands let him down a bit. Looked a little underdone to me.
6 Benji 7__ im usually critical of benji but i thought he ontrolled the game well kicking game especially to touch was excellent. I really felt he held the ball in situations where he usually would have past a bad ball on. Ran more then usual as well
7 Brooks 7___ man i am super critical of Brooksy but i though apart from a few poor late tackle optiions, he was solid. He has come so sosososososososo far with his defence it was awesome.
8 Mats 6 ___ huge fan but i feel like he needs to be more involved 9 runs is just not enough as he is effective when he does carry.
9 Robbie 9___ dude was everywhere not much to say if he plays like that every week we will be there or there abouts.
10 Twal 8___ probably madges most underrated change for me. He just doesnt make mistakes. HE is an excellent defender and seems to make the right play like 99% of the time. Loved how he went at Kapow wouldnt be my first choice but solid.
11 Matterson 9 __ a huge addition for the tigers. Smart player did a great job hits hard and runs really good lines. Could be the best forward we have recruited since tapau lol. I think will only improve as he clicks with the halves.
12 Garner 8__ though he to was really solid. Dropped a few short sharp passes but the weather had a role in those. Can really notice the extra size. defended really well and ran good lines off brooks.
13 Taylor 7__ i think i like ET more in short stints. He still reasonably ineffective in attack but does bolster the middle defensively.
14 Packer 5 __ This kind of hurts due to me really liking him. I though he really had very little impact in both defense and attack. Ran some great decoys and gets around the park well but the rest of the bench out shone him i think.
15 Mikaele 7 ___ kid adds impact. Ran hard tackeld hard. his spot to lose. Love how he played smart and only made on real mistake.
16 Aloiai 9__ hooley dooley where has this been all my life. He was the most effective forward on the field period. Every run was damaging. I think this was the type of game alot of fans believed he had in him. Would have been my player of the game.
17 Cheekam ?? __ not on long not a lot of impact still dont think he runs hard enough to play in the middle third.
Super impressive win i thought. Lots of little things to work on but its the first time in a long time i felt like we were the dominate forward pack both defensively and offensively.
