That's pretty high for Ofahengaue. Yeah, he stripped the ball, but his defence was directly involved in at least 2 of Souffs tries.

Bombed at least two tries, difference between winning and losing that game ultimately.

WHat good are milfords bombs when we have no kick chase? Unless they drop it, they have a free 15m run before our defence meets them. It isnt just the bombs either. SOS put a good kick into souths corner and there was literally NO chase. The only one down there was SOS. Luckily the fullback ran at him and got tackled but if he hadnt there was room.

Any bugger that scores 2 individual tries he has no right scoring deserves a 10 in my books. Let alone the youngest guy on the fucking field.
Pay him to stay mutherfuckers, pay Fifita now!!

A few instances Glenn passed too early limiting room for Oates. Maybe Perese or Farnworth in too add abit of strike on that edge.

Whilst we all know that Darius has had it, there also needs to be questions towards some other players within this 17 who are very out of form.
Oates, Shiba, Milford and Macca come to mind pretty quickly. I’ve got no idea what’s happened to Oates since origin 1 - it could be his whole contract saga but for mine these blokes also need to be held accountable, especially Milford on his massive pay packet.
All 4 could well do with some time in Q cup, especially Oates and Shiba.
I think reality will hit Milford when he sees he is off contract.

I just don't see what Milford is doing wrong, he is more involved then most fullbacks in the game, he has to do more kicking work because we have to carry Darius in the halves and he won't kick even if it will create an instant try.

His decision making at the start saved us massively in early field position, compare what he did to South's 1 and maybe you guys will wake up to Reality.

There is no Doubt Seibold is making Milford be more like a Game Manager Fullback because we don't have Dearden that's why I think the way he is playing now will be vastly different to next year because we are heavily compromised by carrying Boyd in the Halves and don't have a strong Kicker outside Milford.

Boyd and fucking Macca. It's always Boyd and Macca. Don't even need to go through Darius' fuckups but Macca was yet again bog fucking below average. Slow as **** service that takes an eternity to get to first receiver using his version of a spiral pass that doesn't actually spiral, just wobbles everywhere. Seriously how hard would it be for him to learn one of the basics the rest of us learned as children? Get Turpin into that spot asap.

Also thought we copped a pretty raw deal from the refs, apart from the obvious send off. Can't even recall a second half penalty that wasn't for foul play. Oh and if I ever see James Roberts I am gonna hit him in the back of the head, see how he likes it. Stupid mong looking drunk ****.

Oates is still Oates. His problem is he doesn't get the pill enough, and doesn't get it cleanly, even less so than your average winger. Look at the rabble who are feeding him the ball.

Catching an errant ball at full tilt, passed by an inside back who's also at speed whose trying not to get cleaned up by three defenders, while trying not to get bundled into touch, isn't as easy as getting it straight from dummy half. Bear that in mind when a winger coughs it up.

Oates is fucking great. We're blessed to have him.

Oates is still a confidence player, when things don't go his way, he isn't in the game. I was always holding onto hope that as he aged things would change around that. He is now one of the more senior players in this team, as crazy as that sounds. There were decisions he made last night that just were not upto scratch. He needs to get rid of that to see him get back to what thinks he is worth $$
