Geez bit rough on Chanel Harris-Tavita's kicking considering he's got a quad issue currently. Just be thankful we didn't have O'Sullivan out there letting blokes waltz past him over the try line.

Will be raining next Friday on the coast, good battle up the middle against a decent Newcastle pack. Kicking will need to improve in that weather against Pearcey though, hopefully Chanel Harris-Tavita's quad is better by then.
Chanel Harris-Tavita might have to sit one out depending on the grade of the tripping charge

Great win.

I was really impressed with Sironen, he was so good defending and watching those Bunty runs, I've really missed them.

Next week cannot come soon enough.

Still undecided on the quality of the Titans, but hard to fault our effort and defence. The 2nd half with a two man bench was top quality in that heat.

A nice balance between a lot of positives and a couple of things to work on, Chanel Harris-Tavita needs to improve his kicking and Kodi needs to demand the ball at times. Backs are still a bit clunky in general.

Forward pack is top 4 potential though and defensively we were great. If we can keep up doing what we are doing though, we’ll win more games than we lose.

Team reminds me of a 2015ish Manly outfit that just ground you into the dirt.
Power running and tackling that forced teams into the arm wrestle.
We can emulate that, we have the team for it.

Trip is usually just a fine from memory going off previous ones.
Yeah looked low grade to me but I think if it’s a grade 2 or 3 it’s a suspension scenario

Great first up effort. Our defence was first class. Our attack looked clunky, slow and disjointed but early season.

Chanel Harris-Tavita was injured and enoughs been said but neither half fill me with confidence or took control.

Both teams had good handling and low errors given the heat and first game.

Roll on next week and a tough up front battle against the Knights.

Awesome defense, and forward pack was dominate.

If we had some speed at dummy half and on the wings I think it would give us a whole new dimension to the attack.

MOM: Addin Fonua-Blake, what a beast, run off him boys!!!

Sironen was outstanding

But my man of the match was indeed Addin Fonua-Blake. What a buy.

But welcome back Bunty Afoa.

I enjoyed seeing Euan Aitken defending. Another good buy.

But let's not forget. Every time we make the Finals we win 6 out of our first 10 games.

So we need to find another 5 wins in the next 9 matches.

But so far looking good.

THIS IS OUR YEAR.

I reckon Tino might turn out to be poor value for the Titans, has impact when they get close to the line but drifts in and out, slow to get back on defence and does dum shit that will attract penalties and lose them games

Also when roger is kicking for touch? What? Roger was carrying the forward pack for years, he dont need to this year but now he gotta carry the 6 and 7??? 🤦‍♂️

That is exactly what I thought when I saw him take the ball 😓
