Score: 6-4 to Manly Blues Brothers
When the NSW Blues team was announced on Fox Sports they called them the Blues Brothers!!
With Coach Gary Oliver Davis (GOD) allocating numbers and playing positions, thought it would be good to review our match in line with the Blues Brothers team playing this Wednesday night.
1. Full Back
Matt ‘Lucca’ Moylan – Like a great fullback had to pull-off some lace-boot tackles today and placed a kick to the corner that just missed out on a great try.
2. Right Wing
Blake ‘Noah’ Ferguson – With ball in hand was unstoppable today. He made so much important territory, which kept the Knights down their end.
3. Right Centre
Michael ‘Nate’ Jennings – His straight up the middle running technique made it hard for the opposition to take him down so we made ground every time.
4. Left Centre
Josh ‘Cameron’ Dugan – Calling him the all-rounder today. Made space when he got the ball and pulled off some very important tackles, that could have lead to tries.
5. Left Wing
Josh ‘Jake’ Mansour – Always stood his ground today and kept his wing positioned perfectly covered. His covering tackles with other team mates made it difficult to break our line.
6. Five Eight
James ‘Beau’ Maloney – Knows only one way with the ball – straight down the middle and look out if your in his way. So much territory gained when ball in hand.
7. Half Back
Adam ‘Willis’ Reynolds – Ducks, weaves, dummies, runs, tackles, not much more he could have done today!
8. Prop Right
Aaron ‘John’ Woods – Captains courageous throughout the match. Lead by example as his tackle count and metres gained were uncountable.
Robbie ‘Will’ Farrah – Like his name sake, loves to get in players faces and did exactly that today. Caused the Knights to cough up a bit of ball.
10. Prop Left
Paul ‘Henry’ Gallon – Watch out teams, we have another enforcer in the Blues Brothers. Supported team mates with great tackles and had the Dummy Half position down pat.
Boyd ‘Billy’ Cordner – Like a bull at a gate, takes that ball down the middle with so much determination and strength….just get out of my way!
Plus we have thank Cooper who helped us out today and can be a Blues Brother anytime – your speed off the mark made us so much ground today – thanks mate.
Blues Brothers we are a tight bunch, but there are times we have to separate and spread out on the field. Watch out other teams when we take full advantage of the field!
Lots of questions about Man-of-the-Match. Right now Gary, Grant and I think you all deserve to be Man-of-the-Match, so we are going to get you each a Rhino footy to practice with at home.
See you at training on Thursday and don’t forget we are going to the Calabria club for some pizzas for dinner afterwards – meet at 6pm – I’m bringing all my other kids, so dont have to cook dinner!
One last thing….
GO THE BLUES BROTHERS (team playing Wednesday night and us!)
