that was unexpected. they got some janky tries off kicks, scales balancing for some of the janky tries off kicks they've been conceding.

it be like that sometimes.

even though pompey got stopped short how good was it to see Katoa pass to his winger in space, how many young players have we had that would have mucked that up.

Our rookie forwards have really added something to our side.

Taunoa-Brown, Katoa and Vuniyayawa have helped cover for the loss of our experienced guys in Ah Mau, Passi and Afoa. Was thinking we'd get smashed up front but these guys have stood up. Also the loan player in Faamausilli has added some grunt.

Katoa has a mistake in him. But once he gets that out of him and gets some more experience with the sport he could be special. He also has a knack for getting over the line.

Tonne blunt. We are out players, and stuck away from home for the whole season.

I expected us to be shit, so I'll take the wins when we get em.

And we got another one 😊
Bro that blunt must have been gooood!

ha ha

Great performance. Our young forwards were fantastic and great leadership by Green, Wade Egan, Tohu Harris and Blair.

We were good. Proud and happy.

Let in some easy tries but showed they can score points - and entertain - when they throw the ball around and back themselves.

The forwards were awesome again - besides Burr he’s a fucken

Jamayne Tounua-Brown what a fucken find - 170m 24 tackles no misses

Blair runs for 150m

Harris 190m 42 tackles no misses

Katoa 150m 29 tackles no misses

Poasa, Murchie and King - solid off the bench again.

The halves were better today:

Nikorima - ran and caused the defence headaches in that first half.

Kakariki actually controlled the game nicely particularly in that stretch where we pulled away in the 2nd half.

The backline is average but Herbert was solid and Hiku was a positive injection despite a few blunders (lacking match fitness tbh)

We get Fusitua and Ken back and it’s a different story - although Beale has been solid.

Egan is growing better week by week - Lawton was the perfect injection.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck another phenomenal work horse performance - every Run he threatens to break the line wide open but he never seems to do so. Didn’t do much in terms of playmaking either.

For a broken team - nights like this give us hope but it’s obvious we can’t hang with the better teams as we are.
Great post. Yep we would lose most games defending like that, but we just need to try and scratch some wins until we get our players back from round 8 on. If we could somehow roll Souths (big if) we’ll be 3/6 with Ken and Fusitua ready to roll!

was very bitter after last game so good to be a happy warrior ...who we got next week ...when's are prop wingers coming back ...think the team is finally looking like it has some size aggression to it ... as much as I hated Blair last year but he's actually playing decent part in the team .. hoping we can build on the attack esp bring more Roger Tuivasa-Sheck off the shoulder of some of these big boppers, on the fringes

Thought they played a compressed defensive line tonight, leaving big overlaps on the wings forcing the wingers to come in and cover. Created one of the best hits of the night from Herbie. I hope this was in response to Val Holmes getting injured and not the game plan from the get go as it worked well to contain JT but would have left Val way to much space to work with.
If so this is the first time in - i dont remember how long - that ive seen a tactical decision made during the game due to adjusting circumstance.
If not they got lucky, but maybe they were due some.
