Joeys lost to a better team, why do we find it so hard to accept?
Injuries have severity hampered Scot’s they can’t seem to keep the same team which creates No velocity. The big injuries to Blake Steep and Finn Bartlett is massive was witnessed yesterday when Kings destroyed Scot’s. Both these boys would add real grunt in the pack and both league backgrounds are heavy hitters in defence, I think yesterday showed unfortunately due to injuries a few boys who would normally play 3Rds are having to play against a very very good Kings team. Who never really got out of second gear.Thoughts on Scots season so far. A come from behind draw with Joeys, a loss to View, a sluggish win against Shore and a comprehensive loss to Kings.
GoRI’m happy about the result for View yesterday as they still control their own season and don’t need anyone else yet. 2 rounds has created this and kept New, Scots Amin the running.
Joeys have had every chance to be undefeated so far but their isn’t the game breaker or exceptional back row that shuts it down. In fact they rarely contest a ruck in 1st and 2nds. This won’t work v Kings if you allow them to have consistent possession. View couldn't hold the ball yesterday which kept Joeys in it IMO.
They have a very good set piece with multiple turnovers caused from Scrums and Lineouts so that’s good v Kings. I’d be picking the most exciting players in a backline you can find and letting it fly. You will need to score at least 30 to be a chance of a win.
In the instance you are talking about, he actually grounds it short which can be seen on Cluch, the ball then rolls forward towards the try line before he places his hands back on it and thinks he scored the try. Knock on. No try. Referee made the right decisionJoeys also had a disallowed try that he scored, he said he lost it. But refs don’t get video help unfortunately
I thought the ref had a great game otherwise
