Like the team generally. Close to the 36-6 team, and now we at home. But look at the Roosters, and look at the money on them, currently second favs for the GF at sportsbet. That talent they have will snap some shi. up sooner or later. I hope we get away with a second one without them getting it together.
Nothing much we can do about the centres until Gerard Beale
passes an ISP game. But if he goes on the Hiku
creates half a gap for Beale
been the world class player he is, steps to make it a full space, runs through space, 40m to go and just the full back to beat, classy pass to Super Fusitua
to continue his top try scorer of the season.
Our centres are pretty horrible at offensive foot work, but they can pass ok. But what Hiku
did last week was sooooo stupid costing Fusitua
another try by running into a player. Use your head. He should have slowed down once the dummy run was played. So yes it will be a joy to have Beale
in that position. Kata Im not so upset with, at least his head is switched on, like that quick tap to get a penatly the last game. His defense is solid.
Id like to see Papali'i start every game this year but Im sure there is a reason for it.
is a good bench utility, covers hooker, technially the halves but we have a better 6 in ISP, center and winger. A bit of a Lolohea with the added bonus of covering 9.
Im calling Win, Im not sure this one will be a push over, Im thinking we will lead the whole game but they will keep chasing us, something lik 8-10pts, so a -12 win imo. Just going on them struggling to win a 2 point game last week, the talent they have, and we just dont know if this week is the week they finally turn up. So im being cautious. If they fully turn up and we arent switched on, they have the potential to burn us like the Storm did. I very much hope they are taking this as a very tough game not a push over. In saying that Lino and Green just commanded respect the last game, both had everything from 5th tackle punts to pin point bombs to deft in goal kicks. I expect to see that again, Completions and Posession, earning mistakes and penalties on their try line through pressure. If that 36-6 warriors turns up, a solid 8-10 win imo.
Lino's 75% odd efficiency should hold up and hopefully improve. Hes not a go backwards kind of learner and hes definitely no Maloney on defense. I expect end of season he will be up there with the rest of the team. He might she short but hes no push over, hes got ultra stocky quads just very tough upper body. Our up and commer half in ISP is looking the good too at 85% in ISP and a whole lot of good half back stats. We are set for when green decides he wants to leave but we will have gained something from it, not like when that kiwi guy played for us, whats his name, man that was a stupid buy, i said at the time he will play 1 year of rubbish and be off.
