He missed a bunch of tackles and was ineffective in attack. Hoffman was worse this game tho.


I wasn't thinking he was best on ground, but it was a great effort for a kid who wasn't picked at all last week and had to fill in for one of our better edge forwards. Yes he did miss 4 tackles but he also made 27 and had 0 handling errors. I'm not sure what you mean by ineffective in attack though. We didn't have many attacking opportunities for the whole game across the park. Joe had 1 tackle bust and made 75m which is comparable to the 48m Felise made last week.
