Australia play to put Slater in space which is why he does so well (along with the fact he is class anyway). Difference today was brain farts & stupid penalties. We let them off the hook to many times for my liking.
I thought Ferres took his chance well today and didn't look out of place. Plenty to build on from the team which is pleasing. I just wish we had 2 international quality halves instead of playing Sinfield out of position.
Burgess brothers were a cut above.......Obvious benefit of playing in the NRL.

Spot on Gary and I agree about the halves. Never did like Chase mind you and not because he's not English. I enjoyed the game and just a pity about the result.
The way Slater saved that 40-20 was amazing, Felt sorry for Charnley stepping just ove touch line minutes later.

Australia keep it simple and play to their strengths.....patiently

widdop has to start at 6 chase at 7 lockers if fit at 13 hardacre to replace cudjoe who should have buried the winger into touch but went way to high to have a chance of winning the collision

Burgess brothers were good, that's about it.
chris hill was a stand out in the first half with his offload in the tackle and his defence spot on. when he and g burgess went off there was a drop in go forward from us.

You have to be extraordinary to play in the NRL and why would the Aussies import when they have at least 4 or 5 world class players for every position.
