As ordinary as the 1st half performance was, the roosters defence isn't exactly amazing. Just need to hold the ball, complete sets and build some pressure.
I would have thought that we'd have gone hard as hell to get the win and lock up top 4.

Coming around?
His body type should make for the perfect winger. Hope he develops into one but so far he’s been disappointing for sure.

As much as the errors have come from our back 5, I think we are doing ok. Meany had been exceptionally quiet but no shocks there as our game plan should be to avoid Many at all costs

Some pretty convenient six again calls going one way so far.

games like this are the reason that the competence and integrity of the match officials gets questioned....
Some of the calls are just baffling and will be very hard to justify.

Seve and Coates have been much better than I had anticipated. Seve quick hands, good lines and generally gives Coates good ball.

Pokes his head through to partly make up for it.

Before that try he has barely done anything and when he has the passing as been way off. He should’ve set Kenny up for a try earlier.

That may be the worst knock out we have seen on a footy field. The convulsing was rough.

There is no real motivation to play out to our left given Hughes is on tonight, Coates is up against sualii playing out of position and Hutchison not a strike player like Manu is opposing Meany
