2. Ava - Contributed well and kept going. Played too many minutes, but didn't back away
1. Sue - (sorry teddy) Similar to Ava today and continued to make his runs & tackles.

It was very tough going out there today. Both teams belted each other (4 concussion tests) and with the silly bench selections, I was really proud of our forwards.

How good was Teddy defensively!
You are correct about Woods and maybe he wore down their forwards only I can't recall him breaking the line once and getting the ball out, no matter who was dummy half. Nor did he pass much before being taken down so ball always sort of went dead.

If I walk out after every loss feeling as proud as I did yesterday then it will be a good season. I thought, as a team, our boys were fantastic. They tried their guts out.

Despite a dodgy bench selection and losing Grant and an interchange (second week in a row!) they fought right to the end. And, against a side that will give some cheek this year.

It was a huge improvement on the dud 35-40 minutes of last week's game against Titans.

We are just one classy, impacting forward short atm. Don't know where the answer lies to solve that.

You don't think that the loss of Grant had a lot to do with our pack tiring?

Yes i do combined with with a terrible bench

A agree with a few posters that there were many defensive stars out there including Farah, Lovett, Naiqama, Brooks and Tedesco. However, when combining attack and defense I'd go with;
3- Tedesco (margin would have been far greater without him)
2 - Naiqama (close to most improved player in comp)
1- Ava (non stop effort)
