simply put they didnt turn up. went out too watch the game yesterday.
*they knocked the ball on from the first hit up which seemed to set the tone for the day.
*the referee was disgusting. all he wanted to do was blow the pee out of the whistle. on both sides
*Lagi Sao was playing prop and for the most part he did a really good job. pretty much the only stand out for me
*CNK is a cut above the rest. this ground at blacktown is a "park footy" as it gets. could hear everything he was saying. damn that kid has some urgency about him even the way he screams. hes starting to really develop into a huge man crush
*Cherrington played about maybe 60 mins? not sure. hes a bit of a live wire and has some great speed. he can pick up some great meters from dummy half runs. a couple of times he got stuck at dummy half looking for runners but no one was willing to hit it up or they were expecting something else. he will get better with time. he has played much better than roache in ISP. i havent seen every time roache plays in isp but have never been impressed when ive seen him.
*manu must of caught a cold cause the ball never came out to him. his hit ups are a thing of beauty but
*for all the hard running pat sipley does (and he does impressively) he got found out in D a few times. saw jersey grabbing from Him. his brother had a pretty standard day. nothing to excite me but nothing to make me go glad this guy is going
*lino and cook were pretty average
*Satae needs to work on his fitness. when hes on hes a great player but yesterday at the end of his stints on the field the kid was gassed and gassed badly. amazing go forward and great on D when he isnt tired.
*Papali is great on D but i dont actually notice him do much with the ball
*i think number 12 was ogden. well pretty much took him 50 to 60 minutes for him to get his jersey dirty.... it was a muddy affair and for the most part he wasnt going to trouble the people that wash the jerseys
*blacktown werent great by any measure. we were just alot worse. their tries just game from really really poor misses or bad tackling
always happy to head down and watch the boys play when they are in sydneyThanks for the insight, always interested in how these boys are going.
Satae's getting up to speed again after a nasty back injury where he collided with the goal post and was layed up for a few weeks. Pretty sure he'll get back to where he was, the talents certainly there.
Likewise. You'd have thought Chanel Harris-Tavita was the go. Everyone raves on about him. Should promote him and see what he's got. Not like playing U20 is going to hurt that teams chances of playing finals footy...
