The team still looked out of sorts and not chomping at the bit bar one or two. Brough, Mason, Doof, Eden, Crabtree, Murphy and Patrick did ok and were trying.
Lawrence today summed himself up, he is a great worker in defence and must top tackle count regularly, he doesn't run hard enough with ball in hand, today he got the ball in space ran hard threw a dummy and scored a great try, from then on he looked dangerous with ball in hand, next run he actually beat a couple of tackles. It is all about confidence and if he believed in himself more he would still be playing centre and being compared to the likes of Gidley, Senior, Ingles and Lyon!!!!!
Believe in yourselves more!!!!
A crowd of over 6000 and more than a 1000 up on last years game, this surprised me and we back in the running in the famous crowd competition lol

Moore played his best game since coming back to us I think. Yeah he made some errors, but they weren't all his fault - certainly I think any calling out of him today is more to do with people wanting a scapegoat.
Same goes for Eden, he was solid, did his job and was excellent at the back line along with Murphy and George.
Mason was trying too hard to start, but he got better and better as the game went on Gilmore was ok, I think we have better centres and back rows than him now - wasnt it him that shot out of the line to miss the tackle for their first try?
Robbo was dissapointing for my money, was he injured, he certainly went off nursing his arm
Thought Moore did ok. Thought defensively cudjoe had one of his best games for a while- he made that silly flick pass error and after that put in two crunching tackles to make up for it- then seemed to be wrapping the ball up every few minutes. Gilmour and doof looked lacklustre - doof had two opportunities to jump on a loose ball- one for a certain try and just stood looking at the London players going for it with his hand on his hips. Robbo has hurt the elbow he did last time-will have to wait and see how that works out
