The Roosters were completely underwhelming and gave us a hiding. This loss says more about us than it does about them.
I had no issue with the back 3, they did a pretty decent job apart from a couple of errors caused by issues inside them. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
definitely our best on field.
The centres were both poor. Hiku
can usually be relied upon with quick feet and hands but really he was a muppet tonight and Latrell, who I believe is enormously over-rated, had a field day.
Kata doesn't have a lot to offer really. D isn't bad but so one dimensional on attack.
Green tried hard but looked out of sorts... dummy half service to him wasn't great and his accuracy with attacking kicks was substandard.
Lino was very poor. He looks to me like a genuine front runner. On a good day where everything is going well he can look a million dollars. Today he looked like he owed us money.
I thought on the whole the forwards didn't go too badly. The starting front row were good but Lisone
and to a lesser degree, Gavet off the bench struggled to add anything. Lisone
is another in the Lino category. When it is all roses he is the man. When the shit is going down he drops nuts.
is a good footballer and I like him. Heis a quality 14 in my opinion. I do not like his floaty, Gary Freeman-esque passing style. Spiral pass boy, learn it, use it and put that other shit away.
... it has all been said. I get it - energy, mobility, versatility. It is just that he has not shown the necessary concentration, consistency and skill to be playing as much and in the areas he is.
If we don't have a better option then we are kinda fucked because a team playing Jazz Tevaga
as many minutes as we are is not going to win many games.
I'm sure he tries his fucking heart out... but so would bruce
but that doesn't mean I want him playing 50mins for this team.
Shit performance, but what really grates is that the Roosters were unimpressive in towelling us up.
I'm going to go slam my balls in a drawer to feel better.
