    Treadly, I am not a Sione hater but he is more a “trier” than Solid , he seems to rush out of the Defensive line and gets beaten , but at least the support players have time to adjust the line behind him in cover .
    He seems to loose focus on the ball and where it is heading an example of that is when the Broncos were trying to score and the ball was held isolated above the ground he just “flopped on the ground” instead of targeting the ball , this isn’t the only example when engaging as 3 rd man in he often just “piles on top “ without being aware of where the line is - this makes a difference as you always try to drive the attackers away from the line not towards cause then you rely on the forth player in to lock up the ball - similar to what was misssing in the Broncos try

    It was a try for mine. Ref didn't call forward till after it touched oates which deems it a dead ball. Skd catches it, 6 again and scored. Try all day.

    SKD metres out of our own end were great. I wish he’d grow half a brain but.

    Just watching the game again.
    We need to wrap up the ball and stop the offloads.
    It has been a big problem this year, destroying all the good work in D.
    We were lucky last knight that the donkeys couldn't capitalise on them

    Storm will make us pay with offloads and those erors in D.

    I also thought it was a try, looked backwards out of the hands :)

    Milford also threw a horrible forward pass before he try, so 6 to us and 6 off them should be 21 - 6

    I actually reckon that pass Milford dribbled was ok. What wasn't ok was the goal line defence of the Broncos on Pearce that resulted in them having the ball. Minimum 3 ms off side.

    Levi didnt strip the ball when they got that penalty in the first half in their 40 either.
    Should have been our scrum feed in an excellent attacking position.
    Two refs is shat. One calls it a knock on and the other calls it a penalty 30secs later.

    Lamb didnt get the ball because it went to Pearce. I noticed it once on the last tackle and if I were hooking and had to choose, id be giving it to Pearce on the last.

    The times lamb got the ball on the last he didnt do anything with it. Overall I rated his game fairly poor and last night had me wondering when Watson will be back tbh.

    Ross did more than just take groups, he was good in D. But his kick chase and shutting down whoever caught the ball for them was very good and really helped us establish the D from tackle 1.

    Sione needs to just stay in the line. Sick of seeing him sprint out of the line to try and shut down the play which he generally doesnt. He is a liability in D.

    They no doubt also have third parties in their ears as well. Video ref potentially, refs coach also chatting from what could said.

    Linesman also.

    Sione was quiet. Didnt do anything good or bad. A winger was 5 times the centre he was tonight.

    Not talking about last tackle at all, talking about watching lamb OFF the ball on almost every tackle, it was the main thing I wanted to do when re watching the game.

    Lambs issues are not lambs alone but the players around him, cut him some slack.

    5x the centre is a massive call.
    What part of his game was 5x better?
    Definently wasnt his running game.
