Not a huge fan of Braily but how many games in the past 2-3 years have our middles won the ruck for him to play off?
About the same amount of games when everyone says why can’t Braily play like that all the time. It’s not rocket science.
Yeah exactly. He made a few clever runs even with our forwards getting rolled.

Wasn't Brailey who missed 8 tackles. That was Wilton (not saying it was all his fault) Brailely missed 2. Given our defence last night. Moylan, Toby, Talaki, BHU and Wilton have a lot of work to do on their D. But lets blame one of our best defenders for the loss.
Who blamed him for the loss?

I'm putting Talakai as the whipping boy
tough crowd

Talakai is a standout player for us ; we haven’t been weak in the centres since he moved there, don’t take that for granted.

It’s an ugly position to get wrong, thankfully in Ramien and Talakai we have it right

If he could play against Morgan Harper each week and didn't have to defend against Campbell Graham.

he runs for 200m nearly every game, he doesnt score tries though

so he does to every centre every week what he did to harper, just without scoring a double - which outside of alex johnson, no one does regularly

Sounds and looks like he finally hit puberty

Now we need his game to drop its balls

Re-watching the game, I thought he was outstanding other than the dropped ball close to the line (which should have been an offside penalty).

Not sure what game people are watching if they were whinging about him not running or engaging the ruck in this one. He made a 20m scoot at one stage, plus engaged the markers and found a runner on at least 5-6 other occasions for 15-20 metre carries. He was also involved in the Trindall try, and caught the markers offside 5 separate times during the game but only got a call from the ref twice.

I though the Sharks forwards did a decent job in this one of pushing up in support; Rudolf in particular. He had a few really strong runs from Brailey getting on the front foot and then finding him late.
