He's going off, Milf needs to run the show now if they are a chance.
They had the numbers on the edge if Lino just passed the ball when Milford called for it. He could spot it and went that way, then Lino throws a short ball to a backrower who was no chance.
Nice work Lino, your selfish decisions blew Samoa's chance at a comeback. Not only are you dumb, you're a horrendously shit player.
I know he was joking, but would he say it about a blues player in origin?
What club does Lino play at?
Obviously not a form half or 5/8 because I don’t recall him lining up for any NRL games this year.
Warriors I think. Was good for two weeks or so and then...this.
He actually played quite well at club level to start off with. Destroyed the Roosters and was a big part of their win against the Dragons.
**** great game, though.
more to do with who he is behind at club level than form ... being behind SJ and Green would make it hard to break into the team
I’ve only seen highlights but how did Milford go at fullback? He was nowhere to be seen in defence during most of their tries
I was a bit dissapointed. Didn't really look to impose himself, especially when Samoa made their comeback. Was their captain last night but never really featured.
I think that’s harsh TBH. Was screaming for the ball most of the game but Lino would never give it to him. It was bizarre TBH, like you wouldn’t be surprised to find out there was off-field issues with them.
Leilua was captain.
He wasn't really given much of a chance to impose himself on the game. Lino just wasn't giving him much of a chance to, he just kept trying to go for the power play instead of passing out the back to Milford. Milford did get into first receiver several times to try and spark something, but he couldn't do that every time he wanted the ball. He was screaming for the ball most of the game, but Lino just wouldn't pass it to him. Late in the game when Samoa were coming back, Milford could spot the numbers on the right so he ran that way and called for the ball, but Lino just went for a short ball to Papali'i who had no chance of scoring and instead of a try being scored, Tonga get the ball back and get a penalty up the field which ended any chance Samoa had.
What about in defence? Was he as bad as the highlights show?
Could of sworn I saw the "C" next to his name on channel 9. Probably just seeing things again.
I thought his defence was pretty good in general. Are you more talking about his positioning in their tries? If so, no fullback could cover that much ground the way Tonga were moving the ball around.
Yeah, you're right, Lino was doing his own thing out there. Can't even remember the other half touching it much tbh.
I saw on twitter that he was announced as one of their captains.
They had more than one I believe. I remember hearing him referred to as a captain
