    Aimless box kicking was another major problem from him, which you can't really blame on the forwards either.

    Way more upside to Fines that Prior as far as I'm concerned, in both the short and long term.

    No doubt having a better platform from the forwards would help them both though. They'll have their work cut out for them again this weekend with the likes of McReight and Daugunu over the ball
    I don't think it's unfair to say that Prior has a wider, faster, flatter pass and better field vision. I think that has been proven over the last couple of seasons (and let's not forget, I was leading the Prior's too old brigade a couple of years ago) I reckon if Finesey managed to sharpen his passing up, I don't think there'd be a question that he's the bloke to go with. Unfortunately though, there is still a valid question over who is best and that really means that Fines-Leleiwasa hasn't developed sufficiently in the last few years, let's face it a grandparent (in rugby terms) is making it hard to decide

    next time you see him we’ll be there as well. I’ll make sure to share lots of evidence of his misery.
    Already off to a good start, they landed in Vancouver on Tuesday and found all this white stuff on the ground. It’s been years since Vancouver had that much snow on the ground in March. At least it started to prepare him for our place😂

    Anyway back to the Rugby, someone mentioned the changing attack direction. I was excited watching it and seeing it work. Especially as it seemed that the whole team were ready for it and weren’t flat footed or surprised. I was getting frustrated last year with shovelling the ball along and if they did change the direction everyone was caught out and unprepared ending with a turnover or dropped ball.

    I think Isaac lost a year of development when he warmed the bench …. then played wing ??? at the Brumbies WTF .., He is a supremely talented half back ( Wallabies material) It will be a few games before he is back to his best but he will be influential this season….. Go Force !!
