George Gregan (70)
No win but we played much better than I expected. Noah was off tonight but no need to ditch him next game. 10. Lolesio 12 To'omua 13 Paisami.
Uh, no. Paisami just had one of his best games at 12. To'omua has done precisely zero to be recalled besides not fucking up off the bench. Don't change the combinations.
Phillip showed his value at scrum time and I think should rotate with LSL (Lukhan Salakaia-Loto), who was also good but a Swain/Philip combo might help unlock the best of our lineout. A lineout that was a fucking shambles for half a game, but came good, I might add.
Kellaway showed what a Test winger needs: composure, pace, and defence. Wright fans, take a long look because all the X-factor you wave your hankies at doesn't mean shit compared to actual results. Kellaway threw one bad pass but was otherwise good.
Williams surprised me by being not completely shit. Favoured us early but the call against Tupou at scrum time was a horror. Big Karl flat on his face and it is Tupou's fault for "pulling back" despite not moving? Sheesh.
ABs deserved a yellow card. Didn't get it because we scored.
Anyway many other comments but the main one is the AB bench was fucking poo compared to us.
Everyone ready to get thrashed next week?
