How are Gavet and Edwards going? The Examiner used to rate players out of 10 with a short summary.Perhaps they don't go to matches
why is abbreviation such a long word?

All the forward this year in the trial games and the first two games of the season have been twice as good as last year. We finally have some aggression and niggle

The examiner ratings were plucked from thin air anyway, waste of ink

It was obvious from looking at the bench last night what sort of game Woolford intended to play, Salford looked determined to match us and by and large they did but that is a huge improvement on playing 90% of the game in our 22 , which has been a feature of the last few seasons. We didn't really capitalize on it so much because the halves kicking was very poor but it won't always be.

We didn't get bullied and that's a huge step forward I think as they settle in we will have a pack to hold their own .

As one who was there last night our forward ‘grunt’ is far better than last season.

Opposition forwards don’t like Kenny Edwards and Woolford held Gavet back and he made a lot of metres when he came on, just look at his effort that put Loloheaea off his drop goal attempt how long is it since a Giants player let alone a prop forward did something like that.

Gavet also won the winning penalty with a great run and second effort and had the ‘nous’ to play the ball quickly whilst Mossop was still behind him in the ruck area, despite the Salford ‘boos’ even Child couldn’t miss it clear penalty!!

Neither teams kicking game was great but there was a swirling breeze in the stadium and a pre-game rumour from a source close to the club that Sezer had a hamstring twinge and was 50/50 to play.

This appeared to be confirmed by him not kicking to touch or taking drop outs. He was very half pace in the warm up too.

The fitness regime seems much better this year as all our forwards even Bruno made some metres with a couple of decent breaks too and Saui Matagi is a completely different player this year fit and runs in a lot quicker.

Overall a good performance and good to see Kevin Brown given a card for his head-but on Jordan Turner.

Sarginsons explanation of ‘Kev’ is not that type of player he just got his head in the wrong place!!’
was Monty Pythonesque I hope he gets at least two games.....

Biggest two things I have noticed.
Metres after contact! Hurray at last!
Jerry is being made to look ordinary in his runs with the ball from the middle -same old Jerry- still as effective but the difference is he’s not our best forward anymore! The rest are now caught up and past!

To be fair to Jerry Salford had a plan for him last night three men every time.

One noticeable thing (not a criticism)was how young Senior ran out of gas late in the game after doing a lot of defensive work and running the ball out from our 20, shows it’s imperative to handle our emerging talent properly. My friend described him as ‘gassed’ which was pretty much on the mark.....

Possibly matigis best game for us. Real physical presence both sides of the ball.

I’m not at all criticising Jerry- he’s doing the great job he’s always done, the difference is our forwards are too!

As I said in an earlier post Gavet’s effort to put off Loloheas drop goal attempt and his drive and second drive to the line followed by the nous to quickly play the ball when Mossop was still in the ruck behind him and win the penalty was very un Giants like.

That said it was very promising to see....
