    That's genius from Godwin, take the ball into a 3 on 1 when you're the one with no support.

    KK made a big difference on Callan. We aren't great at the breakdown. Our midfield is pants- no penetration, no sting in defence. Oh to have an outside centre like Ikitau.

    Anstee started the season well but seems to have gone off the boil. I'm not convinced about Strahan. I'd be interested to see Parata get a run at 15. I like Godwin but he too isn't a patch on 8 years ago. What a difference a guy like Samu Kerevi would make at 12. Do those grow on trees?

    Seems to me the problem on attack is poor basic skill level. Players like Ikitau or Kerevi don't look so effective if caught flat-footed having to wait for a mistimed pass that's either not out in front or high. Story of our night.

    Strahan can look electric at times, but is also prone to the odd brain fart. Like that kick out on the full. He had the chance and has the footwork to step off his right and work back to support runners instead.

    At the game, I never really though we looked likely. Despite the score. Even hitting the lead.

    I'm in. It's amazing we scored so many points in spite of the horrendous play by our 10. Keeping him on for 70 is basically what cost us the game. What were the coaching team watching? Why was Holmes not brought on earlier when our scrum was clearly struggling? Why was Thrush not pulled when he was clearly tiring? Why was Fines not brought on earlier to spark the attack? The use of our bench was diabolical.

    Strachan and Koteka had great games. Godwin and McIntyre stifled our attack on almost every occasion and need to drop out of the 23 with the quality we've got in our squad.

    We had serious problems in our back line defense also. It seems like any team can score on us at will. What's our defensive coach doing. That has to be some of the softest defense I've ever seen in super rugby.

    Angus didn't do us any favours, but we were our own worst enemies as usual.

    *rant over*
    FCK!

    What mostly gets my goat with most australian teams 15 against 14 and under no pressure at all blokes kick the farken ball away!
    The blokes with 14 on the field are trying to waste time and wind the clock down, but our dumbasses kick it back to them!
    Like i said not much smarts amongst our team!

    Next year top of the shopping list is an experienced 10. To help Pasitoa. Our defence seems to be going backwards when it was one of our great strengths. Was an entertaining match just wish I didnít care about the result so much 😳

    What do we think about Natale at 13? If he catches the ball he's a strong runner who dents the line and he has power in defense. Godwin plays 13 like an underweight winger atm

    Mataele isn't a good enough defender for 13.

    I think better breakdown pressure would help us in defence. The Brumbies felt no ruck pressure. I haven't been impressed by Standers form. I'd like to see more of a pest. I'd like Tizzano back. I look at how Wilkin went for the Rebs v the Drua, or how Dickie Hardwick used to be, and think we need more of that.
