To be fair to Ropati, Manu could have helped out there when it became obvious there was no threat of the ball going to the winger.
I'm trying not to be a Manu hater but fail each week father lolTrue - I was actually very happy with Manu for holding off and not charging in like he's done so much in the past.
Manu did try, but was ineffective by the time he got there. Manu also got bundled TWICE in that game - man it pisses me off. Disappointing to see my man Ropo get fended by Idris, but to be fair Idris is a fucking mammoth and does this to most centres. Ropo had him under control for the bulk of the game, chopping Idris down with some nice low tackles.
lol he hit Idris hard as few times ( you could hear the contact ) while other players looked like scared pussies every time Idris got the ball ( Nathan Friend was another that put a shot on ).
Manu played like a Pussie in that Corridor. Did you not see him getting man handled by men half his size or backing away from his Marker.Who are these players who were like scared pussies? I did not see that. Ropo's defence was abysmal. That last Titans try Idris torched him on the outside and aside from Ropo himself, Idris is probably the slowest centre in the comp.

Manu is faster and Bigger than Ropati , Ropati is marking Idris........?
Ropati should be doing sprint drills as extras and some basket ball drills / boxing / skipping or whatever is the modern way they do it now days o get his feet back.
He should be playing in the Vulcans for another month till he returns faster and the best center we have.....or not if he doesn't get his speed back.
I feel like we are wasting Cyber space here , But if Ropati has his speed.....Yup, he should be playing in the Vulcans, but permanently.
He will never again be the best centre we have though that's for sure.
such a cheeky move from bill. I will say this he is winning me over alot. I used to think he was great for injury cover but lately im noticing how much he actually tries. I know he comes up with stupid errors but he plays with heart and gives it everything. i wish there were other players in the team that had that sort of attitude.Bill Tupou is a team player , smart player , he looks physically gumby but he's no Dummy ( as soon as players inside him make a break he's off looking to receive...Martel threw him a tricky ball / worth a crack shame he dropped it , but it just strikes me that Bill is always there to receive , unlike like the guy on the other wing who starts moving at the last secound and is getting the ball flat footed or going in slow motion.....getting bumped over the sideline like Bill used to). The way Bill sized up the fact that the missed kicks at goal would cost us......taking the initiative to con the Titans in the in goal so he could finish near the post for his kicker is the kind of mental class this club needs.....he is getting better , no two ways about it , my biggest doubts about Bill were that there isn't any room for improvement , he's disproving that now.
A confident Bill Tupou in a winning team...he could be a handy player.
