@Toowoomba_Tiger the first try and the Radley try. Both times he rushed up and they scored through his gap.
On the second one Esan had to go up because Benji did. If they both hold the line there’s no gap.
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.
@GNR4LIFE the bumbling attempt at the 40/20 wasn’t great either, most fullbacks would have tipped that back infield and kept the ball.
As I said last week his effort and courage are never in question but he lacks the class and polish to be a full time NRL fullback in my opinion.
Good kid but I don’t agree about his positional play, he gets found out often enough. E.g. last night that Reynolds kick that split him and the winger from 60m out, that really shouldn’t happen.
Personally I think the Rabbits kicked poorly last night - many attacking kicks were drop-punts and too long, so they rarely troubled the back 3.
But Corey had a good game and he caused some headaches for the Rabbits in attack. He still lacks a passing game which would really help his quality.
I’m with you there. I love his courage and determination but his positional play at fullback isn’t great. There was no need to be as far up field as he was because they were kicking from outside 40. Not sure why Nof ran straight into the only bloke chasing either.
Tyson Gamble has been released effective immediately so I guess we have 2 spots available.
Good luck to him. He is 29 years old and i’d rather let him go now than overpay for another 2 years because we are trying to squeeze too much juice from the lemon.
He has been great for us but if he wants to shop around for top dollar we might as well give a young guy a shot who has more potential upside.
