1. Forwards stand up. Mason & co we inspirational against the bigs Dogs forwards and didn't take a backwards step. Great stuff. 2. DCE is prone to shockers too. When he doesn't have anything outside him (and let's face it, he didn't), DCE is prone to errors and poor decisions. 3. Mate'o is not the long-term answer. Looking un-fit and slow, Mate'o is not going to be able to do this much longer. We really missed Foran's pace and aggression on Friday. 4. No country for old men. Lyon and Matai are 2 of my favourite all time players, but these first 3 rounds have shown that they no longer have the pace to match the quick/fast/powerful centres that play the position today, like Lafai, Walker & co. I'm concerned about how they will keep pace with their opposition over the next 2 years. 5. Surface was embarrassing. I realise that there were a few games played on the field over the last week (from what I understand), but the ground surface has turned us into a bit of a laughing stock. Pretty unprofessional.
