The whole Cowboy backrow was decent, Southern of the bench was good, but Bolton was the stand out.
Yeah for sure. The metres made was what I was more impressed with, the backs went out of dummy half and took pressure off the forwards, forwards laid the platform in the second half. First half they were a bit ordinary in defence, Id imagine Henry wouldve blasted them at halftime.
The Cowboys second half reminded me of a poor mans Warriors circa 02/03. Some of the stupid offloads that miraculously ended up with someone after a bounce or two and gave them good space was insane.
GF for the Cowboys this year based on that.
You must have missed the "poor mans" bit
should have been the friday night game tbh, game of the round so far imo.
Was a better game then both of last nights garbage.
Ref wise both teams though copped shitty calls.
Semi Finals, week one then.
The whole weekend seems to have been full of shitty calls... All the refs struggling to get their eyes and brains in.
I agree that offside call against you guys was horrid.
I hate that whenever we get good kicks away and are defending nicely they blow pedantic penalties. Everytime we force a mistake it gets ****ing penalised.
Michael Gordon (my NNRL GK who i payed a motza for) was really horrible in defence tonight, is this common Flack?
nuh, not really. He's not a shocking defender, he just was left on his own a shit load in the 2nd half, everyone went way to far in, and he was left defending 3 or 4 players at times.
Elford had an ordinary game too.
I can't believe how low the numbers are for blokes like Bolton. I thought that he ran it way more and made far more tackles. It's probably just that I was watching him closely and noticed when he did something.
Whenever he did something it was quality. Didn't get through a huge amount of work though IMO.
Anyway, the stats tend to go up a fair bit after the second viewing of the game.
Suppose he didnt really have to do a great deal in the numbers when Webb, Southern, Scott were all making good metres, Mason as well was doing well in that area.
Dire that Penrith lost. Annoyed at how Penrith threw it away. Gordon made 5 tackles and missed 6. Not so good but every has their off game.
Who won MOM???
I am not sure. Probably Bolton or Thurston. I wonder who will get the Dally M points. My guess is similar to the ones posted in the Mally D with Lewis, Thurston and Bolton.
They had 3. Lewis, 2. Thurston, 1. Bolton. I think Thurston will get them because Cowboys won though and Lewis will get the 2.
I personally thought Tonga shouldve got MOM if he didnt already.
