They must be expecting huge minutes out of Haas, otherwise it is a very small bench.
Would start Lodge ahead of Vaughan, push him to the bench in place of Crichton who's done bugger all this year and in Origin in general.
Wighton is also an interesting choice.
Loved the game, but two things I hated, this being one.
I was livid that not one of our forwards got in Mitchell’s face after this for trying to be a standover merchant.
Thaiday or McGuire would have been all up in his grill protecting their half, who also happens to still be a kid.
IF we continue to play like we did against the Roosters (which I believe is us simply playing to our potential), I think we have the balance of our team and squad pretty bang on for the immediate future at least.
So I hope we aren’t really looking at anyone at the moment, unless of course his...
It’ll be interesting to see how Roberts responds after the Roosters game and particularly if we keep that form up.
It’s easy to want out when you’re not getting your way and the team is playing like duds, but damn we looked good and passionate the other night, which is much harder to walk away...
Glenn has been great this year, but I think excellent is a bit far. Excellent is top 3 second rowers in the comp, which he isn’t. Top ten I think is fair. Maybe even top five or six on current form.
What is excellent about him is that the difference between his best and worst games is...
Reading a lot of this thread makes me sad - gees we were good in 2015.
Another few moments:
1. Not sure of the year (2016 maybe?). From the scrum, Milford beats Thurston and who is supporting him, Roberts. To win the game too!
2. The 2015 try from the kick-off where Blair sent it wide.
I was thinking along these lines the other day.
The “it’s just a game” line is just so wrong when it comes from a professional sportspersons mouth.
It is ‘just a game’ to the plumber who plays touch on the weekend, the nurse who plays netball on Wednesday night or the physio who plays AFL on...
