not seen a pinned thread about this game..



i hope McNamarra is watching and taking notes..

1. on how to deal with melbournes " inside,outside move" involving smith,cronk & slater

2. cronks pinpoint cross field kicks..

dealing with that will help shut the aussies down

Souths have dealt with it pretty well so far. Maybe the Burgess brothers will bring the knowledge of how to stop them.

The match officials have been very much on Souths side! Melbourne Storm understandably struggling with Widdops first game back and having not played well for a few weeks. Souths very poor kicking game and little spark from Sutton and Reynolds. Souths dont look like a premiership winning team. Roosters to beat them again I feel

Think they've brought widdop back too soon, he was falling as soon as a tackler came near him, can't blame him though after the injury he has had,

Does anyone know what happened to Tom Burgess as he was initially named to start in the front row and then didn't make the final 17? Luke Burgess was vice versa. I know that McGuire often makes changes to the 'Tuesday' team sheet so that could be the simple explanation. I'm just hoping that Tom isn't injured (I know that he didn't play huge minutes last week).

Probably didn't want to risk too many knock ons.

According to the stats on nrl.com, he's only made an 'error' in one of his previous seven matches. Unless knock-ons are categorised elsewhere.

That's good. Tongue was firmly in cheek. The Burgii do have a tendency for drop ball though, Sam is the worst. I assumed Tom would have a few to his name as well.

Good tough game, both sides ok but needing an extra gear to win the comp.

George and Sam should make it into the England 17. Perhaps Tom in the full squad too.

Widdop a good bet for the squad for his utility but on today's performance he won't scare anyone. He's pretty solid but unspectacular even when fully fit and despite the tendancy to knock Sinfield and Chase et al, these SL guys are ahead in the pecking order for mine.

I agree England can learn a lot from this match, especially the way to cut down on the big three's options and the value of aggressive defence across the whole line. And I also reckon our SL club sides compare well in terms of applying and maintaining pressure, although they are a bit behind in the sharp attacking stakes.
