What was he thinking with that final pass? Literally threw the game away.

Before anyone starts, no I don't blame him for the loss. But that last play was borderline moronic.
Yeah not a great pass nor decision, just desperation.

I love Tricky but I disagree with this, it's the one thing Moylan does better. Tricky tends to pass well before the line.
One good thing Moylan has is definitely his line engagement with the soft pass, comes with experience too.

He'll be better with a full preseason working on combos and the confidence of him being the fulltime 6. Missed easy goal was costly in the end, and he was fairly absent, but hopefully that will come with more time.

It was costly, but not a reason why we lost. I wouldn't say absent, tonight was all about Hynes.

But I'm no way saying that Tricky can excuse himself, just looked like the game plan was about Nicho getting the ball and doing something with it.

Also doesn't help when our nine is incompetent aswell.

Yeah no blame being laid his way, just saying he didnt really do much. If this side is going to win finals games the whole spine needs to be humming. Nicho was redlining and needed more support from his 6 and 9 but didn't get it. Completely recognise that Nicho could also support the others by leaving some space for them to step into.

With Nicho it's not that he needed more support, it looked like he didn't want it and just wanted to do everything himself. Does he play like that cause that's the game plan or he wants the limelight or he doesn't trust his team or he's put too much pressure on himself?

I still prefer Nicho at halfback, he's shown his ability when we play as a team.

Yeah for sure. He's not got the composure we need him to have. For whatever reason that's turning it into the hynes show when the pressure is on.

Really bad. Nicho is kicking at 79% this year. Coach shouldn't have gone away from him.

I think it was the correct decision by coach and something I wanted to see happen more than a month ago.

Take some responsibility off Nicho and give it to someone that was previously kicking goals consistently (Tricky)

But the Bermuda triangle got both of them tonight off the boot.

I wonder if they practice kicking goals at Shark Park at night time? We seem to struggle out our own ground with it as much as anywhere.

He knew we couldn't kick a field goal (or any goal for that matter) for **** tonight. Might have won the game if Sifa caught it and set something up.

The play was on but in context of it being sudden death and only down one point it looks like a really bad call from Tricky because the execution wasn't right.

Was it a bad pass or Sifa over running it, I think both

Hynes wants to take responsibility for the team and prove himself on the big stage and those are admirable characteristics and goals but it should not be at the detriment to the teams performance.

He basically pretended he didn't have a halves partner in that first half. Hynes was good tonight but he didn't get the balance quite right. He needs to let team mates help him when it comes to attacking the line, doing kicking ect.

It's on the coach to manage the personalites and reel that sorta thing in. Hynes isn't a veteran player with hundreds of FG games over Tricky in the halves and he isn't that much older than him really. They need to play and be treated on equal footing for this combo to work.

Off the field Nicho can and will have the limelight and he will remain a leader on the field. But when it comes to working well with your halves partner he needs to find a way to get that right or he is going to burn out and hurt Braydon's morale and confidence in the long run.

Don't think the whole team is up for finals pressure tbh.
You're right.

Its why coaches always want reps players/experienced finals players. Like Nicho is awesome but he hasn't been forged enough in the fire of big games, same goes for everyone but Wade really.

We gotta learn hard (ultimately the best way) from these games. We'll be better for our last 3 finals losses than if we hadn't had them at all.

I agree, absent is an understatement. Lost maybe. Worse game of his career for us.

Despite with how it ended this year, I’m still very optimistic about Trindall in the halves with Nicho. Just wish he made the call earlier in the year.
Yeah I’m the same. He absolutely has some brain fades but feeling that halves won’t be our problem next year especially with a full offseason together.

It probably should have come after the Warriors game

I just hope Nicho shows more faith in Trindall next season to allow Tricky to take some pressure off of Nicho.

I don’t think this is necessarily Fitz’s game plan but maybe more so Nicho believing as the senior half he needs to be the more dominant half and demands the play more.

Brailey also needs to have better game awareness at times and the courage to overrule/overlook Nicho when he thinks we are better going to Tricky

Of course he was absent, he wasn't allowed to do anything.
I agree with Nicho doing too much, but Tricky has to share some portion of the responsibility for his involvement. If he's a player that is waiting for permission to play then he isn't cut out for first grade.
