an injury to one of our players is never a blessing in disguise or otherwise but i agree Nathan could learn from Maloney in how he ran the game…but suspect he isn’t learning much other than from his Dad.
Maloney despite his known failings with penalties and poor defensive reads still has enough in attack to forgive those glaring faults with him.
Indeed he nearly got suckered in late in the game when he thought he was hiding on the wing but the Maroons saw him but much to my surprise and i guess he looked upwards and said thanks they ran infield away from him.
Despite this he had a great game, rugged, persistent and able to rally the troops where he needed them.
IF i was IC i would remove the C from Tamou…give it to Maloney whilst NC recovers and now he cana move Luai to 5/8th with Maloney at 7
I feel for NC because he was right in the game last night and his defence was great but not sure if he has lost a yard of acceleration but he just doesn’t trust himself or back himself to try something
I hope his injury isn’t too bad but takes the opportunity to learn and rehabilitate his body as if we can maintain wins, we could be there at the finals.
A faint but real hope.
