    lacklustre since qtr time, saints getting out of defense too easy.

    The last 15 mins have been fumbly and handballs haven’t been clean. Whereas the saints have been clean and better kicking going forward to space

    Only 2nd game in and a practice game, however ive seen enough to not want Wagner anywhere near the senior side. No idea what the coaches see in him either..

    Sometimes I think Wagner might come good then he kicks a 5 metre dribbler into the forward line and you realise thank god this is just a practice match because you get those reminders of who you shouldn't play.

    They look a lot better then us now and we can't blame it on coasting.

    Their game plan has clicked and we're reacting. And we bomb it to a wall.

    Win lose or draw from here not the end of the world. Overall balance suggests we’ve improved. But it’s frustrating I’d like to see us go on with games when we are in control and what better way to learn than in the pre season.

    In the end it cost us a finals spot last year not putting port, saints, lions all away when we had strong leads.

    Got home at half time and started watching. What exactly has inspired confidence going into this season again...?

    Possession football and spread will work against us I think in 2018. If we can counter that and the slingshot/Rebound we'll be fine.

    I don't want to overreact, but I think we're going to win the spoon.
