Didn't get to see the whole game as I was sneakily watching at work so I saw a good 50-60 minutes. Here's my thoughts on the squad.

17. Prior - worked hard. Played most of the first half and typical of him. Would be unlucky to miss out on a bench spot.

Yeah I thought Prior was really strong for us at times.

I in particular liked an angled run he did mid field. He took the ball on the burst at a cross-field diagonal that made the defence have to stop coming forward and turn toward him in order to make the tackle.

Not sure whose idea it was but I liked it. He almost broke right through and if this move works some time down the track he'd be able to offload to one of our backs running a straight line.

Has broken a rib apparently, our only injury of the night.

Broken ribs can be painful.. usually only 4-6 week injury lay off.. but to be safe he is better off sitting out and resting it up till around the 2ND weekend in October.. can never be too careful 😁😂😝

I didn't get to catch any of the game so hoping it gets uploaded somewhere.

Thought the tiger guys did a nice job in commentary as well, other than obsessing about either side taking a field goal.

Just a side note.

In watching the replay, I noticed Beale's last pass for Holmes' try. I reckon he could have scored that himself, so.............. I wonder how many tries he could have scored himself last year if he hadn't made the final pass to Val?
Very unselfish, and I think he was great for us last year and will be again this year.
