That was a sensational performance by the boys. Bit of a shame we took the foot off the pedal a bit in the 2nd half, although the Sharks did play with a bit more purpose in the 2nd half. We still won the half by two points (personally I think the goal kicker had the Broncos to win @ 30+).
Beale had his best game on the wing - he was outstanding.
... or his skills. About time he had a few chances to show his stuff. Gagai anyone? No thanks.
What made this win memorable for me was that the width and depth in attack returned, although the execution is still a bit off. Had the execution been right it would have been 80 - 16 but then, I'm not complaining. Interesting how it coincided with Hodgo's return to form.
I was pretty happy with the game except the part where we let the Sharks score tries. Beale was a gun, so was freaking Hannant!!!
On another note, I'd like to bag out the Sharks for complaining to security about the fireworks that goes off when we score tries and kick for goals. We sit right behind the firework guys and they got a word from the Sharks, so you may have noticed the lack of fireworks after halftime! How petty! Not that it made them win anyway.
One thing we can take out of the game is we still have a **** load of improvement in us. Do the like of the Storm, Dragons or Manly have that sort of improvement in them?? I don't think so. Will be interesting to see if Griffin can get the boys firing on all cylinders at the right time of year. Looking forward to having Te'o back also. Mcguire whilst a very good up and coming prop needs to hold on to the ball FFS!
I just had a memory at this game. Did anyone see Josh Hoffman give Peter Wallace a spray when he scored that selfish "try" he was going off. Think it was the 2nd or 3rd tackle or something...he wasn't happy.
To be honest its a good thing to see Wallace back himself in a situation like this it shows confidence is back in his game, yes some luck involved in the try but he still had to create the opportunity for himself.
