Watching Nudgee warm up. Some strong fit lads in this team. They remind me of their Sydney St Joseph’s colleagues. Very disciplined. Lots of talk. Barker will have their hands full today.
Add to that Hill not starting, Barker we’re always going to be under the pump.Barker will be very disappointed with that first half letting in 4 tries. Nudgee was up to it their attack was significantly more balanced and they dominated the set piece which killed them last year. Barker still showed plenty of heart without their captains in Hanley and McDonald.
Barker will learn a lot from this loss and I hope it will put them in a good position for tight matches in the case roundsActually Barker did really well in the second half. They were monstered in the scrum and essentially played without the ball but scored a try from their one trip to the Nudgee quarter and didn't allow a score until the penalty on full time.
