@TigerTiger said in **live game thread** Us vs the Roosters:
@WT2K And Latrell Mitchell. I’d pay him $2m a year to play with Tigers. He could turn our club around. I know he’d never come to us, but I still think he’s the most skilful player in the League and Daley is an absolute idiot for not picking him in Origin,
You could bet Qld would pick him if they could.
He was hardly great last night.
Good effort by the boys but just not enough polish to match the big teams.
Turning point for me was after we went 8 up in the second half and Robbie kicked on the third with no chance of a 40-20 and only Chee Kam chasing, roosters scored that set. We started the second half with great momentum and that play swung it completely.
From there we just didn’t have enough to bring it back.
And then they played ohh so well when Farah went off yeah lol
We came back out of the sheds pumped and had the ascendancy well in hand until that “what the he’ll is he doing, Benji on the 3rd of a seven tackle set last time and now this crap” kick. We then got to chat about it in the stands whilst the chooks were back slapping each other in our in-goal area.
Robbie was running around okay at that point, having had a rest during the break, but he should have been replaced at least 10 minutes before halftime for mine. I find it hard to understand the way the coach normally rotates our nines.
I just can’t understand why Liddle was kept out of the game for so long. Surely he should be getting a run at the back end of the first half when the Chooks were walking
Yes, it was glaringly apparent that the change needed to be made.
Look at the video on here, very interesting
The short answer is yes.
I’m still scratching my head at the 3rd tackle kick from Farah. We were on top with all the momentum, we were rolling down field again, and we kicked the ball back to them. Then 2 tackles later Benji rushes out of the line and the game slips away.
That short spell right there is why I hope both guys retire this year. They have been great servants of the club but those plays are why we don’t make finals.
