How in the world does Brooks gets points? He stands by and watches them pluck a kick out of the air for one try and misses Papenhauzen (with two others) for another.
Mbye bombed a try when he should have passed for the easiest of tries. Then two easy tries for them when all 80kg of Papenhauyzen runs straight through McQueen, Brooks and Robbie and then Brooks decides not to contest a cross field kick when our fullback was not in the same postcode. hardly the coaches fault.
@boonboon you aren’t serious right? Surely you can’t think the other 15 played well. The whole right side defensively was a train wreck. The fact they kept coming up with an overlap shows the right side didn’t do its job. Fonua was guilty of jumping in when everyone else was sliding out. Matterson missed Tupou when he stepped inside for his try. Marsters was pushed off too easily one on one with Latrell but still held him for a few seconds so where was the help in D? Garner made a weak attempt. Marsters has another miss or 2 on Latrell. They were all culpable. And Mbye’s weak attempts just topped it off.
The forwards lacked penetration, we rarely played inside their half and the metres gained were completely lop sided 2013m v 1491m despite both teams completing 29 sets with only one tiger forward cracking 100m, Twal for 105m.
Brooks kicking game was hugely erratic, some 50m others lucky to make 15m handing over field position in bad areas.
Whenever Brooks and Mbye combine on the left edge the are always running towards the sideline crowding the outside backs they never straighten like keary and Cronk. Robbie threw an intercept for a try.
There was hardly a good tigers player out there.
