Aggression

Post by galea#11 » Sun 05 Jun, 2016 6:08 pm

Think we were reminded the last time we showed any aggression was Simon Dwyer and Gareth Ellis

We are a team of stats men
The roosters must love playing with our boys
The whole front row of roosters has more aggression then our whole pack

None of our front rowers have any mongrel at all.

I would take Woods and J Bromwich (both 'no mongrel' players) over Moa, Nappa or JWH anytime :)

I love Woods but I wish he'd play harder, he seems to just do what he has to but doesn't have any gears.
I like my stayers to have a turn of foot, Woods is a 8yr old dour English plodder. Hargreaves makes a player like Woods look second rate. Woods hasn't got an explosive muscle in his body.

Roosters oozed with aggression. Even after having a forward down. Wrecking balls. It was all attitude.

Wish we still had Simon Dwyer to keep putting JWH in his place

We dont seem to develop or recruit aggressive players. Dont know what else to say?
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

It's very charitable to include him and Bromich together.
Bromich is the top Prop in the NRL.
No Mongrel ??????he runs with aggression every time that he runs, ,
Woodsy isn't aggressive at all
It's time for him to get serious And stop dancing with the opposition and run as if he means it, then get up and play the bloody ball.
Hargreaves gave him a lesson today's, as always.

Its funny you say that. Someone I trust ran into Woods early in the year and it was clear from what Woods said that he didn't rate the Tigers side. He said something like "Its just a job." He's a good player but not as good as the plaudits, rep honours suggest. Why can't he run like JWH?

We were bullied up front.

Attitude, aggression, body language.

They just toyed with us.

We rolled over. As per norm.

Was disappointed in Woods to be honest. However there was no one else even close to putting their hand up.

Agree with that point, would have been better to keep Brown and let Lovett go.

its just not woodsy game . back in u20s he did all the numbers hitups/tackles and fifita brought the aggression and uptempo game it was a great combo . we need a JWH to go with woods he is a top grade front rower . AVA Sem has little grunt just a plodder its like they didn't want to stir the roosters up

Ava & Woods can be our no nosense, no aggression, defensive props...
but we need some hard heads to compliment that, as mentioned...

8. Woods
9. Hooker - whoever, Liddle.
10. Seumanafagai
11. Lawrence
12. Aloiai / whoever
13. Taylor

14. Nathan Brown
15. Ryan James
16. Abraham Papalli
17. Jesse Sue

Ruthless.

Woodsy should have a look at how Matt Scott played last night only 3 days after a physical SOO game. Aggression starts with the 2 front rowers in the team. Maybe we need to get Raudonikis to coach us just to slap a few faces before the game I think.
