Piranhas Vs Ories Magpies Post Game Review


Swarms of magpies have been seen swirling shark park as pods of Piranhas were spotted running a muck on Saturday.

Good to get a win over Ories this year and we were very lucky to clinch it at the end there.  We started off guns blazing in the first half but seemed to let our guard slip in the 2nd half and at one point let the Magpies take the brief lead before our comeback. The 2nd half slump was something that we discussed at half time but were unable to correct the tempo of play until very late in the 2nd half.  

A win is a win and even better when they got the better of us last time we met.

Some players of note this week;

Congratulations to Tana for P.O.D. You really stepped up this week and were more dedicated to physical contact and really just knuckling in and getting to work on the rugby field.  A couple of solid carries, but your work was really noticeable in the loose play areas and at tackle ball time.  On top of this, Ories was an important game for Tana to get through mentally, as last time we met Tana suffered a head injury. We all know how hard it is to jump back on the horse and I’m glad you did it well. Congrats again Tana.


Mana – as always, some very strong ball runs and tight defense with some bone crunching tackling.

Jackson – proving to be a leader of the group in the all important pivotal position.  Your vision and knowledge of the game is amazing and your command of players on the field to help them get to where they should be, is brilliant.  And as always your hot-stepping and nose for the try line secured you several more tries this game.  Well done.

Tommy – really fitting in to the team now.  Its like you have always been a part of it.  And it seems like you are really enjoying the challenge of playing up a grade this year – i know it can be daunting, but you are adapting very well.  Some more direct ball running and support play is what we like to see.

Thanks guys,
