Great win / anybody blaming Souths loss on Farah is an idiot.
We were just too good - thank God!
Of course they will be a far better side with Reynolds back and Inglis 100 % fit , but if they can't change their game plans I think we might be looking at the side that finishes 14th

But CK they looked better with Cook in the side at hooker , whether that was our match fitness I'm not sure

Moving Cook to 9 has certainly changed things for them
Yes. Farah is old hat.
Give it half a dozen rounds before he starts from the bench.

I wouldnt be surprised if he retires mid season. He was woeful in the first 20 mins.

Worst player on the field and then some.
Bullcrap lol...he wasnt great but worst on the field is a deadset embarrassing call.
Watch the first 20 mins again (the period that won us the game). Farah was terrible. Three paces behind every other player on the field. He looked like my 75 year old father trying to hobble around.

In all fairness to Robbie he didnt play very much last year so perhaps he will better for the run.

Agree Cook looked sharp, although when he came on we were running out of gas and he's pretty quick.
I thought we played great for the most part but Souths missing Reynolds and carrying Inglis is maybe not a benchmark.
If I was a Souths fan I would be wondering what turned George Burgess into a pussycat.

I think Souths coach's instructions were to take out the playmakers. What Inglis did to himself was supposed to happen to Teddy - if Teddy had been hurled with so much force he would have been shattered. It was a set play. As well with instructions to Farah to disable Mitch - if both successful and Inglis still okay the result could have been different.
Malcolm Knox: What has happened this week is a pity for the Tigers, a pity for Jason Taylor and a pity for Robbie Farah, who had achieved more than the Big Four put together but was somehow turned into collateral damage. (SMH 25-26 March, 2017)

Master stroke from Jason Taylor moving Robbie on. Last nights effort from Robbie showed he is well beyond his best. Behind a monster pack and same old from him ran when he should of passed.. Top effort. Sue looks like he has gone to the next level...

My mistake - I mentioned George as turning into a pussycat (which he has).
Unfortunately it seems his brother Thomas is going the same.

Cook made Robbie look old.
The speed, the service when he came on. Robbie doing what Robbie does.
His kicks are the trademark junk out of dummy half. Ugh.

Let's face it, Farah is a one trick pony and won't change his game.

Yes Cook looked like lightning out of dummy half but in fairness he was coming on in an impact role when the forwards were tired, so that's how he should look. The hooker playing the impact role should always bring a noticeable increase in tempo. I think they'll be a good combination if Souths can somehow improve their forward stocks this season.

I think Robbie will play half until Reynolds is back - his replacement last night was crap.
