It has to be said

The coach dodged a massive bullet tonight.


I cant find one person who thought it was a good idea to put Utai up against Gasnier but we got away with it. I think Gaz got the ball 5 times with Utai in front of him and beat him all 5 times. Thats incredible. And whats even more incredible is it didnt cost us.

Gee i hope Lawrence is back next week, or hopefully we get the week off.

We turned a terrible first half performance around and thats a great effort. It did help that Saints were diabolical, but we put them under that pressure and they couldnt handle it.

We have a real chance of winning this thing.

You hit the nail right on the head KS.We got lucky in that department .But our forwards were sensational.Saints forwards didnt want a bar of us tonight .

Cant argue with any of that.
It was officially the 61st minute when i asked the TV for Brown to come on left centre.

BUT
As was stated in another post, he did run straight & hard @ Soward the lkast 20 especially.

Im worried about Lote atm.

Sheens is an asbolute genius……95% of the time.

The rest of the time he just makes no sense.

How he left Brown sitting there all night when Utai was being slaughtered is beyond me.

I can’t believe Bennet didn’t direct more attack at Utai. Will not be surprised at all if Soward is sacked as it was him who went away from that often.

SJ Lote was never going to see much quality ball outside Utai .
However with Lawrence back that will change

Yes, agree KS. I think we were incredibly lucky that the Dragons were too thick to send it Gasnier’s way more often! 😆

Weve been lucky for a long time….we were lucky V Roosters, lucky V Manly - Sharks…theres more I cant think of right now, I keep expecting our luck to run out…we cant rely on it solely, I know were not, but its helping massively

That’s right, Happy, and not to mention, Lote has had very little game time this year. He will get better with each game. Should be back to his brilliant best in time for the Grand Final 😛

x 2 … so over the bennett ’ supercoach ’ crap. the dragqueens have only a couple of plays and fair dinkum that boring to watch. blind freddy could see matty was struggling but the ’ genius ’ in the booth just sat there watched, and did nothing to change their style of play. bennett pfft !!

Yeah I understand, but itrs his loose carries that worry me; also looks “underweight”.

Yeah all it would of taken was two long passes from Hornby and Soward to create space and isolate Gasnier with Utai one on one
Even with the Tigers screaming out of the line why the wouldn’t have tried a mid field grubber in behind Utai and Co Utai has the turning circle of the QE2 would never of got back

Although Utai got skinned by Gaz a fair bit tonight, on every occasion he did enough to help slow him down…

Add to that i thought Marshalls defence was also super tonight and went a long way to helping Utai’s cause…

Marshall was awesome in cover defense on Gasnier which probably saved a couple more tries that should have been.

Had Gasnier achieved more success against Utai then Sheens would have made the change however while it wasn’t costing WTs, Sheens perservered.

what about when soward ran right through to set up the dragons 2nd try. that gap in the defensive line was caused by a mistake by utai. thank god lawrence is back
