Couple of points on the Reds game:
Genia... everyone has already said it really. Terrible kicking... Just cut them out, and if he did cut them out, his terrible game looks just average really.
Cooper... with his long passes, he really, really needs a short option. A 12 or blindside that holds the defence up. Already you can see that the only move the Reds have up their sleeve is Cooper drifting, then massive long ball trying to hit either fullback or Reds 13 on the drift outside the opposite 13. Can work sometimes, and then is easy to read once they do it too much. Well read Cheetah's flanker out there.
Simmons... This bloke is where Horwill was 7 years ago (?). Penalty magent through sheer stupidity. Only Horwill had physicality I guess. We were on attack, and Simmons goes in to clear out, and flops on his stomach, to the side... it was just lazy really. I want this bloke to do well, but he just needs an attitude readjustment I think.
Hansen... Better starting hooker than Fiangaa, and showed some good skills down the side but I was pretty sure I saw a toe on the line there...
I can't see us troubling good teams at the moment. I hope the Reds work themselves into a bit better form.
Ref... Pretty sure he forgot about the rule that states the tackler has to release the tackled player. At no stage did he enforce the release by the tackled player.
The Goose... I like how this bloke plays, but I wish he had better support than just Le Roux. His backs need to offer him more. He could be great.
Strauss... He is a good player. In everything, mobile, has skills. Very good.
Worst box kicker in any team I have ever seen. Either poor kicks, or results for the opposition. That is all his boxies are.
Why he isn't pulled the minute he does one, I just can't understand. Graham needs to tell him to leave the kicking to someone else... Just cut it out altogether.
Lucky, because last week, Quirk was the only one making try savers out the back. He pulled down about three run away trys last week against the Tahs.
