To be fair, Nicho was whinging up a storm too. Was Nicho on field captain? If not I'm unsure why the ref put up with it.
Yeah think it was RTS with what looked like a play the ball fumble, nico was still bent out of shape 3 tackles later.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t see anything but you wouldn’t usually see a player going after it that hard unless it was something pretty obvious

The scramble in the second half was the best I’ve seen in years from this team. Amazing effort!! What a win
100% , Honestly after the first 2 tries i though we were going to get spanked but they hung tough and showed a much better attitude.
Last year i reckon we would have capitulated. We look a lot fitter too.

Once we back this up regularly and it becomes our hallmark I think that the opposition will sometimes capitulate earlier.

Just a question. If one of props jumps in the air and someone tackles him the air do we get a penalty with the new rules

We have a hard enough time catching the ball when our props have their feet firmly planted on the ground!

The Sharks Have Heart patch on the jersey was pretty damn ugly. Do we know if it's staying there or if it was just for round 1?

If staying they should at least make it look a bit more integrated.

I know it’s said all the time but it was actually one of the toughest they’ve done in a while I heard.

Atleast since Flanno days

Apparently a lot of boot camp type sessions with mental challenges (puzzles etc) to get us better at thinking under duress.
I’m glad Fitz is constantly making changes
