Fans goatta have their fun imagining switching this player and that.....will put us in with a chance.
Been loosely following Townsend out of interest to compare how he rolled next to a top half that isn't Johnson
.....I want to know if it is this club and its Shaun Johnson
's and Manu's who are the problem or the imports that leave here that prove inadequate.
The Sharks have been shutting down, grinding down, and out thinking every side in this comp pretty much all year.
The theory that Gallen and Fafita Maloney etc will be tired can only be tested by forwards with Similar sized Motors (we have no prop anywhere near it) and Maloney they protect quite comfortably.
We've put in a handful of solid performances (not counting these past blow out wins + last weeks cripple fight) and lost respectably to Melbourne and the Broncos at home. The only other performance that puts us in the ball park saw us pip the Dogs in Wellington (the Dogs were horrible off a short turn around).
The Sharks are ten straight.
They are the new Romans versus at best a Barbarian horde.
History shows the only way the Barbarians win is when Rome's internal split and decay allows it.
I can't see how we can beat these blokes.
I try to imagine a favorable Reffing display....the bounce of the ball goes our way....our young Props play the game of their Lives, our backs click....
But reality looks more like this on a good day:
Brave Warriors have several standout individual performances and throw the kitchen sink at the Sharks.....
Premiership favorites weather storm and clinically out class the Warriors.
Blow out score unkind reflection of what was probably a closer contest on the field.
Here's what I see on a bad day:
" I don't know why we didn't show up....we trained really well this week.......the feeling about the club was really positive.
Quite honestly the Warriors deserve credit for tidying up the TITANIC......
But this Movie is about the Shark.
We are going to need a bigger boat'
