Mooney playing tough too
Hurt, got off his feet, back into it running decoys, laid out off the ball, gets up again to make himself available for another decoy
This is good stuff from mooney

Maori fullback up into the line and they immediately hit the kick in behind it.
Though the hammer might have been offside, to tell from that angle

30th min TRY INDIGENOUS ALL STARS to Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow chasing the Trindall kick. Incredible grounding just inside the dead ball line. Somehow avoided losing control. Converted Nicho Hynes.

Mooney quite underwhelming so far. Leo Thompson should have been retained in his place IMO.

Great tackle from Tapine to force an error and It gives the Maori All Stars a shot with three minutes to half time. But now Timoko makes an early error.

40th min A brilliant offload from Tapine, he's playing great football. But the Maori team follows up with an error on half way.

Colour me shocked
The footballer with a season and a half of FG football under his belt looks better than the guy with about 55-60 minutes of FG under his. :lol:

How about this. Let's give Mooney 40 games of FG and see where he's at then?

Tapine looks set for a big year
Looking very dominant when he's taking hit ups. Admittedly it's a kick and giggle game but good to see

like Wighton being happy after a loss.

Potential doesn't win games though. Thompson is a better player, who is only 2 years Mooney's senior. We had him on our books and we let him go. I'd rather have Thompson on our books that Mooney now and moving forward.

Timoko having a stinker

Based on the selection criteria of some he should be shipped off and replaced with Waqa Blake

54th min ERROR MAORI ALL STARS Matt Timoko bombs a try, knocking it on over the line. He's not had a happy night with his hands in the wet conditions.

Mooney has been good. Off the ball especially.

Maori spine has been shocking.

Continue to be real happy with Mooney's game tonight.
Physical in defence, hard and tough carries where he pushes forward... working hard off the ball with kick chase and decoy runs

Puru was good when he was on, Timoko had some unhappy moments but looked good in the areas you want him to look good and Tapine has dominated. Overall, 10 to go and i'd be thrilled to get out of this now without any injuries. The boys did well.

Tarps putting in extra effort to make the conversion harder on the previous try and now saves a try here
Really strong efforts from Tarps in a game he could honestly phone in if he wanted. Good example of why he should be our next captain
This has been a captains kncok from him

Wasn't much of a game tbh so very little to take from it. Tapine looked good, looks a bit slimmer. Timoko had a bad night. I didn't even notice Puru was on the field but not much possession. Mooney's defensive contact was better but he also didn't do much.
All in all not much to take from this game.

Tapine was awesome in a team that had no clue in attack. Scored a try, saved a try, got heaps of metres, made some big tackles and his short passing was good too.

Timoko looks fast and strong but had a bit of a Barry.

Trey looked very comfortable with the big boys. Worked hard and looked powerful.

Puru didn’t get much time and was largely unsighted.

Overall, happy with our boys.

Good game, a shame the conditions werent better, could have been a much more exciting game.
But it's good to have some footy back. Itching to get home from the multicultral festival tomorrow and watch the Raiders trail
