I think you just have to shut down a few individuals on the titans and they don’t have that much worry about, obviously Brimson, Tino and Fifita are the keys, that bench is weak, even in a trial Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
found a gap so big next to Lisone
he could run backwards through it, and Ash Taylor is still more likely to grubber dead and run down a blind alley more times than he’ll do something constructive.
Pleased they picked Don and Thompson over Sami – I believe the match ups would be Thompson vs Ken – I know he can’t leap like Manu used to, but that foot in height has to count for something. Don is always good for a fluky aerial try, but not over the top of Fusitua
They do like to spread the ball coming out of their end, which not many teams do these days and can definitely see that catching us out a few times, especially on Hiku
’s side. If they just run straight one out hit ups with their backs don’t think they can get out of their own end without ref assistance.
After the broncos shit the bed on friday night, the NRL needs a Queensland team to be worth watching in prime time games later in the year, so expect the GC to be built up and get a lot of favorable calls this season.
I just don’t know what Nathan Brown
wants to do with our attack – its hard to say any game is a win until we see how that looks. Team selection makes sense, trial lots of go forward and good tackling practice, but nothing really shown other than give it to the big boys one out.
