Wakey ran harder, tackled better and were tougher physically and mentally than the Bulls , we had our chances but didnt take them, more disappointed the Team didnt come over to the fans at the end before disappearing, though I gather RHP got them out, but to late for a lot of very disappointed Fans!
On paper the Bulls should win this game, but it’s not played on paper!
Wakeys dna has this real backs to the wall gnarley game when its the last throw of the dice time. despite poor games, off field incidents,I expect a fully committed Wakey to try and grind out a result.
The Bulls just have to be patient and play smart.
Fax did what most Bulls fans expected and came to play,the Bulls when bothered could have got a result, but they were not that interested, come the second half no interest, when Gaskell replaced Sjeika it really went downhill. A few Bulls players like Shaw and Crossley came to play and kept trying despite quite a few going through the motions.
The belly aching about part timers and full timers was irrelevant yesterday it was all about Faxs desire and the Bulls lack of it.
Be a lot different next week!
I fully expect Fax to turn up with the mindset to spoil the party and give the Bulls a good in yer face performance, this to keep the players honest and focused, I also hope they have a go at exploiting the Bulls occasional defence lapses against quick play the balls and sloppy tackling, and also a niggling game to get penalties which the Bulls can sometimes be suckered into giving.
But a fully committed 80 minutes from the Bulls should overcome and negate any percieved flaws in their game plan.
This should at least see a minimum 3 tries win to the Bulls
