Epic comeback by Weiters. Looked like it was going to be one of those nights for him, but he fought back and won the battle in the end.

Man of steel indeed.
Full credit to him (and to be fair the kids who stopped the easy kicks into the 50).

Just backed himself and played to his real ability. Did look shellshocked early but massive response.

Walsh is awesome.
bit what I really loved to see was others doing their bit. The likes of Dow (disposal and poise was sublime), LOB (found the ball and when he had time was damaging), Honey (we’ve found one) and Williamson (that’s what I used to love about him) wee great contributors. It will take more than just Walshy and Crippa to get us back to the top flight. This was pleasing

Our tackling intent from the get go was impressive. By halftime we had 51 tackles which our game average. LOB's best game for the club, SOS dug deep and Harry kicking a bag was pleasing.

Murphy isn't giving his best for the jumper or his team mates and we are carrying him over the line. If we have a game with an early injury and he's the sub we are virtually a man down.

I actually was never too concerned with Weiters, I've seen this before with him.

He engages WeiterBot mode, analyses what he needs to do to beat his opponent, and puts it into play. I'd always back him.

I know Charlie didn't do much, but that goal was sexy AF.... One step, BANG from 55!

Can't wait til he gets up to speed.

Him and Harry are going to be a nightmare for defenders.
Injury free is all I wanted. The goal was . Looked to be moving ok but wrong spots (fair enough after missing two years). He'll get a little bit better each week. Anything he does is a bonus.

Newnes and Murphy have to be dropped next week. Have given absolutely nothing all night
Until that last 10 minutes, Murphy had been on the pine for almost 40% of the time he was active in the match.

Newnes had defensive work to do this week, and he cocked up so much of it. That said, can't fault him on covering ground or trying to contribute.

We won which is awesome, but saints played like they thought we were easy pickings. But great to start balancing the ledger again against this stain of a club.

Dow had a bit more gas, LOB deserves to remainder of the season as does Honey.

Loved everything about tonight except
  • Injury to TDK - can’t be serious another ruck down
  • Last 10 mins
  • Murphy just sickened me seeing his attitude on the pine and on the field
