Most of the time we were up our own end with the ball because our forwards didn't have the leg speed to make a heap of metres. I can name about 6 or 7 good opportunities we had and they saved about 3 tries within inches. Even that plodder O'Neill looked dangerous when he had the ball against Hayne. I'm more worried about how we handle their forwards so we have enough gas to make our own metres. If we add a bit of leg speed in our forwards with Hess Wallace etc with our superior outside backs metre wise I am more than convinced we can score enough points with Slater, Thurston, Cronk and Smith orchestratingReally?
The scoreboard would suggest otherwise.
Well that sucks. Seems he hasn't purged that One Stupid Play from his game yet.For those who missed it, Jarrod Wallace put on a shoulder charge on Ayshford off the ball today, likely a facing a Grade 1 shoulder charge at minimum, if found guilty will miss 2 weeks & Origin II.
The MRC and the judiciary have been letting that go all year.
Once he realized the ball was coming back in, he stopped and Ayshford ended up colliding with him. He was bracing for the impact and they have been letting that go all year.
But we'll find out in 24 hours whether the MRC decide to charge him. If they do, he would have a pretty good case to make at the judiciary and should fight it.
Channel 9 just made his case for him when they broke the news.Does he? Every journo I saw commenting on it yesterday said he was in big trouble.
Or by media do you just mean the narrative of robbing a young player of his Origin debut.
