Now do you know why I wanted to see us play on a dry track before judging us?
We had the benefit of playing 2 teams on wet tracks in the first 2 rounds and compressing our middle and therefore controlling the ruck and everyone was getting carried away saying were a different team, our defence has improved and we’re not conceding points etc.
Today we saw where our defence is really at, got dominated at the ruck, let the Dogs roll through us and they pushed up in support and completely destroyed us, imo the scoreline flattered us.
A decent side would have put 50 on us.
Our attack was limp, a few times we did make inroads we had players standing by watching like spectators (they might as well have started clapping and cheering)
Then we had Brooks pushing crash passes to backrowers who had heat on them.
We persisted down Fonuas side for far too long (yes we did eventually get over) but gee it looked like we had a plan to go after Jamaal the 2nd and that was it.
Once again brought back down to earth by a team we we’re expected to beat, nothing changes with this team.
Disappointed is an understatement.
