I agree but at the same time if we make 50% less errors we probably win by 20
Which is what I was expecting tonight, not praying for the game to end after the 70th minute.

I have to admit though, when I read about Moylan my heart sank. It’s hard to overcome both him and WK being out. Then Tracey went out…

Tricky was very good, Moyza out was the least of our worries.

Best on ground.

Hopefully a good indication on him picking up how and when to take the line on. There was no hesitation to take it on last night and the benefits of that were clearly visible.

Just remembered this article, not sure if we've run through it before.
Thought it was interesting how Fitz described Nicho's role, seeing as early impressions were that Nicho would be running the show and developing into the more traditional haflback role. Things change though I suppose, and it does look like what's been happening on the field for the second half of the season at least:

"“When we signed Nicho we didn’t want to make him a traditional on-ball halfback [which] wouldn’t have suited his attributes. What Matt’s been able to do is take a lion’s share off Nicho and allow [him] to run freely and get around the field more. Matt’s happy to get on board and help [him] release to do that and vice versa."

The banana bending goal kicking at the Bermuda triangle against the Dragons seemed to work well for him

Nicho might not be perfect in everything he does on the field but he is such a refreshing style of player to watch play halfback and he is always working on something - run, pass, dummy, offload, early kick he keeps things interesting. A halfback that can take on the line like a 5/8 and he is finding his nose through the line more often lately.

has a field day if the opposition don't swarm him but even if they do he has other qualities that he brings. Can make a great tackle as well. Has the class to match the effort.

As much as Chad & Reynolds have helped their respective new teams I am really glad we signed Nicho
He gives me a strange fuzzy confidence

Be nice if he could hit the banana from left side .
BUT , be capable of gun barrel straight kicks too especially from the right side

He didn't really have any kicks on Saturday night from his "bad" side.

His own try and Wade's were close to the posts and the conversions for both Tieg's and Trindall's tries were from his good side.

A few months ago he didn't have a good side so I will take that!

Since round 15 he's sitting at 87% (20/23).
When was the Frenchman here? June & July?
That seems like a masterstroke by Fitz if so
Was also...

17 of 19 (89%) between rounds 8 and 12.

First 7 rounds were forgettable, and he had one bad night (3/8) against the Warriors in round 14 (following Origin 1). Outside of that one night he has been dead-eye dick for 3+ months now, Frenchman or no Frenchman.

Maybe he got his **** sorted back in April, and just had too many lemon squashes after Origin.
