i think he should understand the game situation, he shouldnt have even made onto the field because he was a backup plan with the original plan working well tbh

great work by des to immediately correct it, alot of coaches might have gone down with the ship

des should sit him down at a restuarant and give him the "its not you" break up type speech

"cook its not you its halfback ennis, we went backwards with him there plus he was going so well at hooker"

btw this means that we were pretty much playing a 15 man rotation except for a few minutes

He did look sad but it was for the team, he will get other chances but tonight we needed Ennis at hooker at an important time.

Not to mention Perret's limited time, so 14 for most of the match

its such a luxury to have graham leading the pack tbh, he can absorb the big minutes, along with the young backrow

Poor fella looked filthy, but it was a smart change by des, ennis is best at dummy half, and shit in the halves .. I don't understand des's mind games why can't he just pick the proper starting team.

Cook's an alright hooker, it's just that Mick's better.

Unfortunately, Mick went crap in the halves, and lucky that it was changed quickly.

100% correct rod. I thought during the second half that he wouldn't play and I knew things would go pear shaped when he came on. Well done to Des for bringing back what was working.

Role player. He's very elusive out of dummy half but doesn't have anywhere near the organisational skills or passing skills of Ennis.

I really hope Lichaa can develop the organisational aspect of his game quickly next year. Don't just be a distributer.. Get a feel of where we need to be at what times and who the ball needs to go to to get that done.

I felt sorry for him, but it was for the greater benefit of the team.

He will get his chance.

Ennis saved his 2 worst plays for the 5th tackle options whilst Cook was on.

Firstly he got a poor pass from Thomson at dummy half and didn't get a kick in close to half way, gave the good field position.
Then the next time we have the ball puts a bomb up that went up and down on the spot and gave them good field position, which ultimately led into the try off Browns dropped bomb.

Not his fault at all. Just proved again to Des that Ennis is not a half back!

Maybe Cook and Liccha next year? Liccha on for like 50minutes then Cook on or Mybe?

It had nothing to do with his performance, more to do with how Ennis was performing at halfback
