    4 trys to 1 is a great result..BUT are we going to win next week without someone who can not kick goals or with a centre that can only run when there is no one in front of him…I don’t think so
    Apart from that the ground was packed it to 20 minutes to get a beer there were no seats in the members ..why wasn’t it played at telstra?
    Same Bloke
    PS your mate from Joeys played well enough to make the national side and next week Aussie Robbie will see him first hand

    Same bloke,

    Are you talking about Carter or Horne? I thought they both had pretty good games.

    At least at the SFS you get a better view….

    It si Lote, he props and cops when he has to beat someone.last night he scooped up a ball and straight for the line.
    Beale is a big problem 5 kicks between the posts out of 15 in 3 games .If it was any other team either he would either be dropped or another person would be kicking.he must have photos of MacKenzie.,
    Perhaps Aussie Robbie will have the balls to not pick him as it appears that the talent spotters don’t
    Frier helped his chances which is better than someone who can’t throw and can’t strike for the ball

    If Beale (my other “Joeys mate”) does get the nod for the Wallabies, it sure won’t be for his place kicking.

    Thing is, he gets the ball into in the air nicely with a good strike, just the direction is haywire. Is he getting coached on it? I can only assume he nails them in training but can’t do it on the night.
