Watching it again, there were a couple of bits that stand out:

  1. How well the Tahs finished tries 2 and 3. Sure, they were great positions, but how often do you see guys take it on too far or passes miss the man in those situations? SNK’s golded ball and Burgess’ ruck clearance were key
  2. Rocky bloody Elsom. I don’t think I’ve seen him have such a great game since the BaaBaas match last year. Not only does he deliver the final pass in those tries, but check out try 3 again. He makes the bust up the middle, offloads in the tackle and is back in the line the very next phase to throw a dummy and then put Beale away.

    Hey Matt, thanks for posting the highlights. For whatever reason, my stuid TIVO did not record this one, but did record the Crusaders-Hurricanes game. I think the ‘Tahs wil be hard pressed to duplicate their result against the Crusaders, but the beauty of the game, as we found out in the World Cup, is that you STILL have to play the game.

    All in all a pretty good week for NSW with the ‘Tahs winning and the Blues beating the Maroons in Sydney in the first State of Origin Match.(I know, it’s only rugby league, but hey, it beats watching NASCAR or Cricket)
