The Felise Kaufisi try annoyed me. Mbye was hanging on the right wing for no reason, hense no fullback to assist in diffusing the kick and try defense. He’s been playing long enough to know better. Watch the replay and you will see what I mean. I think he is lazy at times and lacks resilience after an error.
Regardless of his cover defense, he chose to bludge near the ruck/wing, rather than get over to diffuse the kick. He’s the fullback, that’s his job.
I cant say I’m upset about where we are on the ladder. The thing that still still frustrates me about this year is the losses to both the Bulldogs and the Panthers earlier in the season. Those losses are hard to justify and are the reason why some choose to question rather than make excuses for underperformance. Anyway, we are in the 8 and I hope we can give to the storm and bunnies and look solid on the ladder.
I’m choosing to enjoy the victory last and hope that we can build some consistency from now. I must admit, I have more faith in Madge then I did with Ivan. Madge demands more and is a hard ass as opposed to Ivan, who is poonse with no back bone. I have praise for Brooks after last night and can only imagine where he would be if WTs were a force when he started his career. Nathan Cleary has shown that he is incapable of turning a team around at the moment and hopefully he isnt rewarded with a blues Jersey. Bring on the Storm.
