Larry Dwyer (12)
Knox vs aloys was a game of two halfs. In the first half aloys played with discipline and structure, and really took it to Knox making it look like an upset was possible. Aloys spent a long period of time inside Knox's 22, however were only rewarded by a single try (similar to last week at barker where aloys had plenty of opportunities but couldn't convert them). Where as Knox's scored two tries in the first half despite spending much less time in the aloys red zone. However the second half was a different story with Knox's big forward pack crippling the aloys defence where most of tries came from in a 2nd half blowout. Knox played with structure in the second half and had a lot of front foot ball, with thier 9 giving good ball to the forwards with the 2 crossing 3 times in a great performance. With the exception of the Knox 13 and 9 I didn't the think their backs were that flashy. For aloys, they showed large potential in the first twenty minutes. In the forwards Nolan the second rower did well in the lineout and scored a good try, and the 7 made numerous great tackles and pilfers. I feel aloys should get a win next week up against Waverley, and if they can play with consistency for a full game, I imagine they will get a couple more.
Agreed - Halliday also made an impact from the bench
