Having not read any comments during the game, here are my thoughts.
Defense, outstanding despite letting in 3 tries. We were accurate physical, and bloody effective.
Tight five good, Bower went up a notch, Taylor of old was back. Brodie into it all.
Loose forwards outstanding. Akira got through some work, and should have scored a couple of tries, but unselfishly gave those outside him the simplest of tries.
Weber I though was pretty good until he tired and started throwing a few wayward passes.
BB, good but his goalkicking is and always was woeful. If he starts moving forward in big games we need someone else kicking goals.
Midfield, solid and accurate. ALB surely the premier midfielder in NZ (if we didn’t know that already)
Both wingers very good, love love love seeing Rieko pinning the ears back and going for it. Looks to have some real confidence.
JB, red card I though was a fucking shit call. Was looking up at the ball the entire time, extending his foot so he can land safely, not his fault some idiot got too close.
Front row subs, sub par compared to our starters. Scrum penalties, poor lineout throwing.
Back reserves added something, this game was tailor made for TJs running game.
Performing pretty bloody well I think, some of us, including myself may need to eat Foster humble pie if this form continues…
