We are a team of toilers (with a few decent players). We win games by giving 100%, holding the ball, winning the penalty count. If we do those things, we can stay with the top teams and grind out the top teams.
But because we don’t have that extra bit of class, we will never just play a lower ranked teams and win. We don’t have overly threatening backs, hole punching back rowers, pace, or props who just steamroll through. We don’t have the cattle. Its a weak weak roster and Matterson, Mikaele and Jennings make it stronger than last year, but the same gaps are still there. We will just never roll through the weaker teams and put them to bed. The class isn’t there. Fonua, Jennings, Masters, Thompson, Mbye etc, are all solid but none scare an opposition.
