what a win and this was a win against a quality side who will trouble all teams in the NRL this year
Our boys responded in only the way a high quality team could and they delivered in spades.
We played with aggression, we played with energy and this gave our creative boys time to weave their magic.
There wasn’t a bad player out there and there were some highly noticeable players who lifted to their premiership level.
Luai was amazing and some of his plays were at another level but he wasnt alone, Crichton had his best game since last year, Too was on, Leota was menacing, JFH was great, Lenui not only played big but he played big minutes which is great to see, Martin was on and shock horror even Garner had a superior game and i hope he learns to go low when the line is open so he isn’t held up like he was and Yeo was just Yeo, solid, creative and inspiring.
But the backs were also on song and that Turuva really impressed last night and he is either a great fighter or is just mad but he showed heart for a man of his size i haven’t seen for a while and he kept charging at them in offence!
Cleary found his touch, Tago was awesome and Edwards again proved why in my mind he is the best FB in the comp and wouldn’t swap him for anyone.
Great coaching effort to get the boys up for last night and oddly they get the wet off for the bye which may help us and importantly Cleary if he has any ankle issues from last night. I hope its nothing and he recovers because we need him to continue our assault.
It appears the players realised what was needed and we knew it wasnt a major fix, they just needed to wake up and boy did they wake up last night
Congrats to the boys, a fabulous result and effort.
Every aspect of our game that was singled out last week was on song last night.
Credit where credit is due - Critta played a great game and seems to have sorted his head out. Garner ran some nice angled lines and played with venom. And albeit thanks to a HIA, we seemed to use Kenny and Luke more effectively.
But the biggest improvement is how we played as a team.
A very rewarding win against likely top 4 opponent.
No one had a bad game and everyone gave their all.
First time I’ve watched the whole game this year. Thought we were good everywhere and the score flattered Souths. Will be interesting to hear what Anusly has to say about Souths 2nd try - off the ground or what. Made the last few minutes more exciting than I would like. Why Cleary didn’t try for a field goal towards the end baffled me.
Agree 100%. At 16-4 up, I was screaming at the TV to take the field goal & put the game out of reach.
Reynolds did that to us last week & showed what a pro he is.
We won the game, but not killing Souths off early was poor game management, imho. Hopefully, it’s one of the lessons we take out of the game.
Having said that, it was a dominant performance, full of aggro & purpose, especially in defence. The whole side lifted their game, so good to see.
Credit to the Rabbits, though. Most other teams would have been steamrolled. They hung in right to the end. They’re a good side, so putting on a clinic against them & being able to dominate them is a really good sign.
