When i'm at work I listen to TripleM NRL channel on the app which is all good. Not sure if the Kiwi folk can get it, as may be geo-blocked.would be 2GB sydney with those two.
Manly another good team at finding space on the edges. Will come down to defence out wideWe are exactly where I thought we’d be after 8 rounds - 4 and 4 and in the top 8. Each week we are improving but we are yet to see an 80 minute performance. We smoked the cows yesterday and if we’d just come out in the 2nd half and limited errors in the first 10 minutes. I think we could have put 40 on them. If Ken’s try wasn’t disallowed, it could have opened the game up in our favour - instead, that call put wind in their sails. That said, we hung in and walked away with the result. We will always take the two points… just like Joe Parker. Winning by just enough is enough.
Manly this week is a big game given the other matches happening. This to me is a must win if we want to be a contender. And frankly, I don’t care if we have another average performance - as long as we walk away with 2 points.
winning joe Parker style will do…
Players facing the wrong goal line when the play the ball cracks me up.....un PC these days and yes concussions a bitch i wouldnt purposelly wish on anyone, but must admit i used to have a giggle watching dudes try to get to their feet.Besides refs taking falls and falcons. Is players doing the fresh out the womb fawn walk, when trying to get up with cramp the funniest thing on the field?
Did Brown make a mistake in pairing Berry and Kosi, looking at the NRL Game Day Team List for the game, it shows Maumalo playing at 2, so on that basis Kosi played where Maumalo would. I know Pompey's only 24 Games Old, but that's better than 1? Or was it the right call to not lump Old Man Pompey with more than he already had to deal with?
was trying to avoid saying anything about Kosi as it was his first game, but want to address the positional issue.Another 2 points in the bank and some further experience for the youngsters in the side.
Walsh is certainly a freak although he second guessed himself a couple of times where instinct was fighting coaching. Great to have a half that can boot the bloody ball.
Rocco played well and will be a force at centre in future, that boy can tackle and also has a fair turn of speed. Backs up everything.
Pompey continues to be a revelation along with Curran, we are lucky to have these guys developing with us.
Felt for Kosi, always going to be a hard gig in an inexperienced backline. He'll learn and not sure I agree with some of the comments here about him being another prop wing. Seemed to me he was pretty light on his feet and getting burnt was more about positioning himself rather than lack of pace. Like to see him get another shot.
We lost the wind and momentum in the second half with a few uncharacteristic mistakes. Was glad to hear the final whistle.
Great to see the pace in the first 40 and Kodi sure stepped up at 7. No fear would be a good description for our backs since Reece arrived. Sometimes it just takes a spark.
Can't wait until we get the full house back.
We've really missed having a hit man that can smash other players and give the team massive boosts and he's doing that well. I was very critical of him but full props to turning it around and looking like a top playerHes one of the first picked for me atm. Closest weve got to a Radley, Murray type player. Was unlucky to not score and great scramble D.
That is a brand new combo with a first time half on that edge.My biggest problem with Curran is that he continuously overran the play when the ball came out his way. Two or three times in that game there was an opportunity to pass to him for a break and we couldn't, because he was ahead of the play. His pass for the Pompey try was good, but it was also forward. Hopefully this is something that goes away with more time in the side, but I found it very frustrating today given how the game was set.
