David Klemmer 202 metres, Saifiti 134 and Levi with the best game of his career 103 metres
Hopefully RTS & Green are still out next week
I reckon Hymel Hunt was great. Gets better every week. Moga might get a run with injury to Ramien, but I think he could struggle to get in at full strength
Pearce having a red hot go was the real difference today.
If he'd have gone like that in every game we'd be top 4 right now.
Line speed a massive factor early and Levi playing his natural game stand out for me.
Pearce has got to work in short kicking game as well @Billy
Good game today, although I still feel like we were robbed of a great game after the opening 20. Good to see Pearce show some of the form he brought to us at the start of last year, hopefully he can keep it up. Klem/Saf starting made a load of difference today. Good to see Levi back after a couple of average rounds, hopefully he keeps it up also. Surprised people saying Ponga was 1/3 of the reason we won, don't think he was outstanding, just didn't do anything wrong.
The challenge now will be to back it up next week and play with the same intensity and build on our performance and not regress.
amazing isn't it-run hard and tackle hard you get results...eventually, light dawns...
Anyone able to show a better game from Griffin than Levi's performance today?
It's ok, I'll wait.
The question should be, why can't Levi do that more often? Took him having to find another club to play well!
It's the coach who stopped him from doing what he does best. He wanted Levi to be more of a team player. You gotta play to your spine strengths.
Of course it is
Like all reputable betting services I'm legally obliged to advise you to gamble responsibly.
I hope you followed the advise & got on. Let's just say it won't be Carrington ham sandwiches & pink soup for Speedy's kids this week.

Have to agree. Levi's best strength is his dummy half runs. I said on here recently he is great at identifying when the markers are not square and going on a run.
Today his dummy half runs were crucial to getting us on the front foot in sets.
Griffin is consistent. But Levi vs Griffin both at their best would be Levi every day.
He was playing behind a forward pack that was monstering their opposites. He chose when to run perfectly though. He’s very quick and pretty powerful at full pelt. He’s a great threat coming out of his own end. Not so much in the other sides 20.
He was one of our best over the first month so this hasn’t exactly come out of nowhere. The rotation tonight was our strongest until we get Griffin back. Watson could be really leathal against tired forwards.
The odd thing about this weekend is that we won 4 out of 5 grades, and the only grade I was sure we'd win, under 20s, was the one we lost.
I like sione at lock off the bench if he can dodge the hias.
Yeah still not sure how they managed to lose that considering their form and their opponents form.
Fantasy points can be very odd sometimes.
This week the lowest on a very poor 9 points was SKD.
I'd have never picked that from watching the game. I actually thought he had one of his better games apart from one dropped ball and being out of position a bit for one of the tries.
