Perry did ok in first spell but his downfall was giving three penaltys away on the bounce

What were the penalties for? Holding down?
Perry is very good a dominating in the tackle and getting the opposition on thier backs, (generally) holding them down just long enough to slow them down without getting pinged. However, if the ref was "setting his stall out" for the game, he may have taken exception to this in order to force a quicker PTB.

On the negative side I thought Lomax was woeful, often picking the wrong options. I don't think he reads the game particularly well, he doesn't seem to spot the gaps opening up at times and just hits the man he thinks he should be hitting. It's like he's on autopilot and can't change his train of thought and react. I'm still not convinced he's a 7, although clearly he's a very talented player.


Well said. Lomax is a natural runner but he doesn't yet have the reading of the game that's required although I'm sure he'll grow into it, in the same way that Long did, eventually. However, I would also say that, and it's the same for Gaskell, the timing of our runners is nowhere near as smooth as the pies has been this season. It's something that needs addressing now and next season. Part of that problem though is the players not knowing what Lomax is doing which goes back to the training field, increased awareness of each other and of opposition defensive patterns.
