We need better props - You cant win with Oli Clarke, ET and a struggling Mikelle backing up Aloia who is doing an amazing job. Tje reason we lost last night is down to poor refeffing and a lack of quality props. Well that and having a backline with a kid who hasnt even played reserve grade and Chris Lawrence who gasn tf been a centre for 10 yrs. Injuries have cruelled us just at the wrong time - the side we put out against Raiders would have won that by 20
It wasnt Benjis attack that he was dropped for it was his horrible defence
I dunno, sure he made some poor reads but he also runs people down pretty well. He ain’t as good as brooks but he isn’t chee kam either
I love Benji but his defence was horriffic and thats why every team was running at that side and all of a sudden we have hardly let in a try outside of kicks since he was dropped including against 2 of the better teams.
Yeah Brooks was dangerous running all night - almost went over for a try in the first half and stuck his head through all night, forced a drop out, generally kicked well and defended brillinatly as they ran at him a lot. Had the issue of Mbye injured outside him as well and is forming a nice combo with Douehi
