    Napa- 6 that’s the performance we have been waiting for! Let’s hope it’s a sign of things to come.

    Disagree thought JJ was strong, and some good hit ups as well, can’t fault effort of DWZ but he’s got hands like feet, average under the high ball and limited playmaking ability, I’d prefer to develop Meaney at the back and use DWZ on wing or as a centre

    I reckon all our players were really, really good and were unlucky to lose this one.

    My picks are:

    3. Napa
    2. DWZ
    1. Hoppa

    Special mentions to JJ, Dean Britt, RT, Wakeham and Meaney

    Don’t think we were unlucky, they try hard but they’re just not good enough, had plenty of ball in good field position and never looked like scoring

    Yeh but it takes us a a bit of time to warm up.. I'm glad we seemed to have picked up from where we left off..
    I think our attack will improve.. Wakeham wasn't very involved but I think he was a little tentative.. he just needs to grow in confidence which
    should come with more time on the field..

    The same Meaney that didn’t go looking for the ball or help out his forwards and other back 3 carting out of the danger zone. The same Meaney who dropped 2 bombs and didn’t support any ball carriers?
    He was very very very poor tonight and I’d be surprised if he would need to get his jersey washed.

    He wasn’t great tonight but he’s had a hamstring injury and hasn’t played a trial, at the back end of last year he was very good and he’s got more upside than DWZ and most of our other plodders

    I love Meaney as a player but yeah a little quiet tonight.. I wouldn't mind seeing a Meaney DWZ switch, love Dal at the back but we need a strike weapon on the flank, and Nick playing his natural position

    Jmk didn’t have a single trial and busted his nut out in the middle
    He looks somewhat frightened honestly

    Plz don’t ever put dwz and Meaney in the same sentence again. I’ll beg u. Dwz has more heart in his left nut than Meaney entire body.

    I like Wakeham but giving him 3 points is dead set crack smoking

    I thought the whole team was prettt solid for round one. When you compare the teams, especially the spines, we were more then competitive with a team that will likely be top 4. A horrid bounce led to their only try, and I'm still not convinced the he was outside 10m when lewis fumbled.
    Anyway, i expected a massacre after the week they have had. Well done boys.

    I disagree. We came close a few times, and also had one disallowed. Parts scrambled well, asdis we. It was simply a good ol fashioned arm wrestle.
