woah hold the phone, Packer ran for 150?!?! the forwards seem to be really enjoying themselves

Packer made at least 3 returns from kick offs from memory, but everyone in the team simply looks fitter than last year, particularly the forwards.

yeah a heck of a lot fitter, they didn’t appear to be slowing down much at all during the game.

The completion rate is also outstanding under the weather conditions

Madge the forward and bench whisperer

Smart, no-nonsense football just like last week - pressure builds off the back of it.

Completions in those conditions was very impressive…

Forwards numbers are the complete reverse of last year…

Keep it up…can’t remember that many missed tackles either

Matulino has returned poor results again did he only play short minutes?
Taylors game almost non existant in attack.
Benji could take the line on a bit more.
Still plenty of improvement with the ball which is great considering how we have gone in attack.

Matulino underperformed again, he is overpaid, Seumanufagai and Sue would be a bettter value!

55m from Matulino!!!
What is wrong with this guy?

He’s gotta have the worst run meters stats of any front rower in the game.
If you tripped over and crawled on your hands and knees you’d make more meters than him.

So far for the money he’s on he’s been a bigger dud than Blair.

Last year, despite our scramble, we would often register 40 or more missed tackles. The improvement here is amazing.

Did you watch the dogs v parra today? You might change your mind about sue being better value.

Back three very good. 90% completion rate - very impressive.
