Missing Farah

Post by tig_prmz » Sun 17 Jun, 2012 6:23 pm

Farah's absence the last couple of games has been very noticeable. without him, our attack has no bite, our ruckwork is poor in defense and attack and we look in disarray in defense when he is not in the middle.

iosefa had little or no speed out of dummy half, passes were too high at time for benji stalling the play. didn't see humble much, but he tends to charge out of the line for a big hit and usually comes off second best.

hope he can recover well from the tragedy and get back to his best, we need him.

We missed Robbie immensely, particuarly in defence in the middle, Humble and Masada dropped off a heap of tackles in the middle, which resulted in havoc.
In attack, at times they were ok, but they are not Robbie Farah.

Robbie plays, it is a different ball game.

Farah has been missing from 3 of our last 4 losses. Speaks volumes of his contribution to the team.

yeah missed him big time, I don't think Iosefa is a good enough gap filler tbh, thought we looked better with Humble out there.

I think we missed him but I don't think that was the problem. Put it this way if the forwards had got on top I think we win that game.

Iosefa is a worry though - he does a lot of good things but a tonne of bad things.
