My thoughts in the cold - and sober - light of day;
- Looked lost without structure around him. Whilst he made loads of meters I actually thought that Kevin Locke might have done better with that break a few year ago. I was also a little concerned with his one-on-one defence, given that that was one of Tomkins biggest weaknesses.
Tui - Wasted on the wing but at least that side as reasonably defensively solid. Made a couple of errors but wasn't really involved in the game. Why was he goal kicking?
Blake - Was better than I expected on attack and defence. Not a world beater but dependable. Hurrell might have got a couple of tries that Aysford didn't but he was in a well beaten NSW Cup team yesterday so the right edge might have been as leaky as the left if he'd been selected.
Kata - Scored a couple of tries, didn't pass, didn't tackle and showed no urgency to get back upfield when the Tigers made a break. Infuriating.
Manu - Was going ok until he decided to try and turn things around single handedly and then, of course, the errors came......
- Played well in the second half but I got the feeling that that was because he thought "fuck the game plan" and just went for it. Why was he still feeding the scrums and kicking for touch?
Robson - The perfect replacement for Townsend, as he was shite as well.
Lilliman - Huffed and puffed but he's probably on the way out - how many more years does he have left in him? He was never the most dynamic prop and is now probably best suited to coming off the bench if he makes the 17.
Luke - Total non-event. Looked fat, lazy and disinterested. Should change nickname from Bully to Boily.
Big Ben - Good performance, nothing flashy, good on defence and bent the line.
Benry - Was doing ok until the inevitable happened. Still cant believe he was picked over Bodene.
Hoffman - Bad day at the office all round.
Mannering - Played like he always does. I'd make him captain!
- Made Luke look like a fat lazy cu**.
- Ran hard and tackled well.
Gavet - Also ran hard and tackled well.
Thompson - Why was he on the bench? One of our best forwards last night on attack and defence.
Cappy - What the fuck mate? Team section? Game plan? Organisation?
Morgan - Defensive coach, enough said.
