The Vunivalu 10 minute brain explosion killed any chance in this one. The Brandon Smith injury a big one too. Not much we can do with no hooker.

Stimpson is actually making a good fist of hooker.
Defence for the first 15 minutes was awful, but is starting to come together.

Suli and Addo-Carr both looking overwhelmed, although I thought the sin bin on Suli was a bit harsh, well milked by Parra.

Hopefully with a bit more possession in the second half, we can get back in this. NAS and Jesse are the key. Our boys need to roll their sleeves up and get into the tough stuff.

Yeah agreed, Stimson is doing surprisingly ok. I expect Griffin will pass the HIA however and will be back out there soon.

Young and Suli's defense is shithouse. Suli looks rattled and Griffin is a plodder.

The Grif...*pause*...fin HIA was a precaution as he must have suffered a headknock before he threw that wasteful pass!

Badger is so far behind the play he's incapable of making crucial decisions correctly.

Getting f*ing pissed off with Parra being allowed to run behind their own players.

Where's the penalty for running Josh off the ball?

Has he let us play the ball tonight after a hold up without calling it back and disrupting the flow of play. What was it called back for exactly? All the players were good to go...

Very frustrating.
