Momorosvki is a very smart RL player, he is never going to be flashy, but we have enough of those players in the side.

I love watching Miller, yes he made some mistakes and I think he needs to work on that but i think he’ll cause havoc on a dry track

Yep. Don't think we've seen the best on any of our new recruits yet, but I don't think we've downgraded in any of thise positions. As Simmo mentioned I also though Roberts did very well.

Thought Croft turned the game today with another fantastic tackle which dislodged the ball when they were in good ball. I knew he could run but it’s his D I’ve been most impressed with so far, love it.

Also loved Holroyd going on a mission on Chris Satae. He was a bit clunky was Tom but he was trying to smash their biggest man all over the place . Bravo.

Great win that.

Great win and lots to admire. Just for balance Jim as I know you dont like Bentley and he is frustrating but you cant fault his workrate and you can tell his teammates love him. You shouting out Holroyd but he made 3 carries today with an average gain of 1 yard! Appreciate hes had no pre season but neither has Bentley! Admittedly 10 carries with 2 yard gain lol. Thought Mcdonnell was very good as a returnee today and his stats were excellent!

Thought we hung in really well today and took our chances when they came. Spirit looks really good.
Dont actually think any of the cards where justified either side but then games gone mad.

The only one that was justified was the one for the tepeat Six against, rest were penalties and nothing more imo

I think we'll keep making errors coming away from our own line as long we struggle for go forward. I think we're really missing Fus in that regard, and I'm not sure Mom is an upgrade on MacDonald in terms of the type of player our style requires.
But there are positive signs with our defence. We're never going to see intense line speed whilst Rohan is coach, but we seem very hard to breakdown this season.

As Chris has said, different players Momirovski and Macdonald.
Macdonald is a big running threat.
Mom is rock solid in defence and is a wingers centre. It's no coincidence that Handley has a bucket load of tries already.
When Handley burned round Macdonald for his try against Salford, I don't think that happens if it was Momirovski. He's much smarter in D.
I like what I see so far.
Not flashy, but rock solid.

Tom looked rusty as at times but he was literally the only player we had who could confront Satae (and did). I always remember Barrie McDermott said he would basically target whoever was the opposition’s hardest man.

Not knocking Bentley’s work rate.

Mom must have some pace too he’s played a lot of wing - we just haven’t seen him in space yet.

Good win on the back of some great defence, but I'm still unsure of the attack. One thing I've noticed this year and last is that our forwards dont seem to be taking the ball in with any intensisty. It's like Rohan begrudges the "forward battle" and just wants to get a few hit ups out of the way to get onto the fancy offloads or early kicks. Think if we did the nitty gritty a bit more in attack and earnt the right to play the fancy stuff we'd go alot better than trying to force it.

Bentley given his "Phil Clarke" motivation for this season. "Decent but not top end player". Apparently Mad Micky is a genius. Play that to him before every game. We need someone who isn't scared of ruffling some feathers. JJB and Ablett wound everyone up. Bentley will win a GF ring with this team
