    I know it’s only the 9’s but the doggies fire in the belly is back. Beating the eels in any format is great.
    Excited at the prospect of having quality juniors in the ranks for the first time in about a decade

    I felt we had a chance, but it is still surprising. What do you reckon was the biggest single factor in the win? Defense?

    Composure stood out for me.. also playing as a unit with numbers in tackles.. gave Parra little to work with, especially Mitch Moses who I tipped to be player of the tournament again

    We actually looked fit, thought that was the biggest thing as it allowed us to scramble well and that's pretty much what you need in this format when you're required to cover more ground. We also sent a more suitable side compared to previous years. Parra also looked really sloppy but that could've been down to them thinking they were going to walk through us and not handling the pressure when we actually turned up and asked questions of them.

    I'm normally a staunch defender of Jayden but he won't be around long if he doesn't start showing some mongrel because our other young blokes are hungry

    Don't know why the club resigned him tbh. He isn't that good.

    He is so big and so fit he just needs to remind himself before he hits the field.. disappointing

    Think some people need to pump the breaks on writing off players defence on one showing at the Nines. It’s so easy to get isolated with the extra space and it can make even the best defender look stupid.

    Agree. Watched the highlights and it hits you right away how much space there is out there. Keeping Parra down to 2 tries is incredibly impressive. It is too different a game to start getting into defensive and offensive strategies. Better take aways from the nines would be fitness, athleticism, and enthusiasm.

    Totally agree, everything about the Nines favours the attacker. You can’t commit numbers into a tackle because if there’s a offload a line break is very likely then the ball movement is so quick and there’s so much space it’s very hard to number up.

    After watching Britt last season I thought he might just work out to be a good acquisition. It’s only 9’s and 1 game but he was pretty damn good, arguably the best player in both sides. Hope he can continue in that vane.

    Exactly, both our tries came from offloads 5 metres from the line. Hoping to see a choice offload from Britt tomorrow, he must have some in him, his old man delivered some beauties.
