PeterK I readily admit to recognising Cooper's faults but I must say I have been impressed with his efforts of late. He has clearly been attempting to improve his tackling. He made a number of bone crunchers last night and good luck to him.
He has not been overplaying his hand generally. That seems to show some maturity in his game. He is not trying to score from every pass.
But what really impressed me was his passing at the advantage line. It was so reminiscent of Larkham - flat, wide and with marvellous vision.
The forwards did not win the battle up front in the second half. No wonder Cooper did not shine. No back does unless the piggies are going forward.
Dig by whining. Must stop. Concentrate of the game not the ref
This ref is going to get sick of genias whining shortly
