0-6 to the Dragons after 20 minutes.
Zac Woolford is on and Sam Stone is off.
I assume Buhrer is doing what Yates was doing last year - first 20 at hooker and then to lock.
4-6 to the Dragons
try to Kiah Cooper
Saulo is on for Momoisea after 25.
4-12 to the Dragons - should be halftime.
Saulo looked good before missing the tackle for the second try. Ese played full half and Tau looked good too
Alifa and Hosking are on for Eseese and Buhrer after halftime.
8-12 - try to Moga after 50 minutes.
Hard to say who is kicking - but they have missed 2 from 2. Zac Woolford probably took the second one.
8-18 - twenty minutes to go.
Saulo is off - Momoisea back on - so Saulo did about 40 minutes.
Eseese back on for Alifa - so he'll do about 60
8-28 with 10 to go
Buhrer is back on for Jirah - so he only did 10 minutes
8-34 - 5 minutes to go
16-34 - according to the updates Kiah Cooper scored 2 quick tries to complete his hat trick in the last 5 minutes - probably a mistake.
0nly 6 tries to 4 but we got 0 kicks and they got 6.
Geez with 3 highly regarded nrl players ( Ese Buhrer Moga ) and a few fringe nrl players to get pumped at home is dreadfully depressing.
Anyone at the ground able to give us some info? Was it a lack of halves direction? Or just poor D? Or just chithouse effort?
I was there. Just lack of want. It all came in the last 10 minutes when it was too late. Individual efforts were ok but as a team had no leadership.
Moga fended off a tackler and then ran 50m~ to score out wide, didn't look like he had lost much pace judging off that one run. He was struggling to get air back into his lungs afterwards though.
