Mead just went to shake Sattler's hand and Sattler walked away. Haha

ISC. Wynnum hurting from 2019 how far can that drive them? Broncos stars but Scarlett and Hoeter are the drivers.

Norths a good unit, I think the unit gets up. Wynnum rely too much on individuals.

Sio Duncan Hall Medal.

Unit indeed! Great coaching, Smith completely shut down Scarlett, Hoeter and Berrell.

Too many individuals trying to do too much for Wynnum.

Norths started well and Wynnum couldn’t get back.

Wynnum went away from what worked all year. Too many mistakes no quality ball for the edge anc Cobbo was left to find his own ball.

Tense second half.

I felt the senior players wanted to do it all themselves at Norths. Roberts, Ahearn and Levi kept going themselves and just kept the Seagulls in it. The problem was that the Devils couldn't play field position because Cobbo was just so dangerous at the back and the conditions made it difficult to keep him out of the game. They nearly paid the price but fortunately Selwyn's youthful exuberance got the better of him.

The Seagulls did well to lock the scores up but just couldn't string together enough good plays. That was a heart-breaking try to lose the game on. There wasn't much you could have done, Norths had to string four good plays in a row and they did it. I wanted to see a replay of the onside again, I thought Molo was off-side on the initial kick and may have even been down-town. It's all yesterdays newspaper but just an interesting note I'm curious to go back and see.

He deserved a try anyways and the mobile Norths pack really did a good job of bringing Levi into the game.

I'm happy for Norths. I've made no secret that I'm a fan of Smith and what he's done with the club since taking it over. He's a real student of the game and I'm always curious to see what new faces pop up at the club.

Yep.

Little to no success in the grassroots keeps hurting.
Fucking hell, a full Broncos first grade backline with Cobbo, Mead, Hooters, Arthars and Kennar, plus Robati in the forwards couldn't beat a side with a single Bronco discard Danny Levi. Cobbo stood out as looking dangerous but his dick fingers ultimately cost the Seagulls the game.

Just caught a replay on reddit and there was absolutely no dramas. There were a few players in front of the kick but they stayed out of the play and Molo stayed out of it.

I think The Seagulls backs were generally great, outside of handling errors. They were making huge metres out of their own half, it was just the halves that were wasting all the good work. The end of set options and general organising was atrocious but that isn’t the fault of the backs.

Robati had a good game too.

Exactly, for mine, where WM lost it was in the halves and their 5th play options. Their attacking and long kicking was poor, despite the wind in the second half, not once did they look for a 40-20 and when they were attacking norths line, they appeared to have no plan. Basically anything threatening was coming straight from berrell and individual efforts.

I felt for cobbo because nothing was happening for WM and I think he felt he had to score or create every time he touched the ball so went for too many low percentage plays.

For mine, I have cobbo starting isc at fullback next year. I think he will be better served developing his game here. His support play was lacking yesterday and had he been around the ruck more I think he could have taken advantage of some of the breaks/half-breaks WM were making in the middle of the field.

Nui seems to have improved his support game and seems to have a better passing and short kicking game at this time, but I dont think it will be long until cobbo becomes the number one. The broncos will just have to adapt their game to a powerful running fullback rather than a ball player when that occurs.

Scarlett being off his game had a massive impact on Cobbo, that's one of the frontiers for him to conquer, he was getting it towards the end of the year and learning to read halves and feed off them but it wasn't happening at all yesterday so he had to go get his own ball and then he made mistakes.

Support play and all those things are improved by being able to understand the game. He has a very fundamental understanding of the game.

Cobbo's passing improved his second stint in ISC. His two try assists were in the last round and prelim final.

The breakdown of receipts and passing/running was 77 passes/230 times he touched the ball in 10 games.

Two try assists is certainly an area to improve but I think halves will help him- just not yesterday.
