I thought Royce went pretty well when he was on the field. He was there for the start of the game when the energy was high and the packs were really going at each other and didn't look out of place.
Has been very good at using his strength to slow down ptbs
Also with Paulo they handled good restarts form RCG but the moment Hunt was off Taupau got absolutely bounced trying to do the same thing

Even that isn’t going to be as enjoyable as it usually is, with it being in Qatar during middle of the season.

I'm looking forward to seeing how shambolic that WC gets - it's a joke Qatar got to host it in the first place amid all the corruption but that's Fifa and the middle east for you

If your gay or an alcoh0lic you are out of luck - plus you sleep in a tent in the desert, fkn lol

Do hope the Soccerroos go alright though and always enjoy watching them play in a WC though I won't be getting up/staying up at silly hours for it this time around

Probably glad I didn’t stay up.

Sharks player ratings.
What disappoints me is the “Didn’t spend much time on the field” comments for both.
Would have been a good learning and the longer minutes the better.
Oh well!

Result was as expected.

15. ROYCE HUNT - 5

Didn’t spend much time on the field, but made an important tackle on Valentine Holmes early on. Finished with 35 running metres, a tackle bust, an offload and 18 tackles with one miss.

23. OREGON KAUFUSI - 4

Didn’t spend a great deal of time on the field, only took two runs and missed crucial tackle on Josh Addo-Carr in Australia’s first try.
Oregon came from the field around the 23rd minute mark & didn’t return, spoke with him after & he has a shoulder injury.
Royce was limping from the 20th minute but played through because Oregon had already come off.
He got a knock to the knee & only returned for a short stint in the second half, but couldn’t play through the pain.

Thanks for the info.

Hopefully doesn't interrupt their pre-seasons.
