Blues 2021 SRA ratings

Righto, a quick comment on SRA. Overall, I'd give us a pass mark, but only just. We didn't deliver results-wise, but we put some decent effort.

Blues v Chiefs

This game was a perfect example of a team that's down on confidence and looking lumbering and predictable. Last year we saw slick interpassing near sidelines, and good rugby IQ. This year we don't know who our best 9 is, and are not playing heads up rugby

Two steps forward, one step back

The last 2 minutes against the Chiefs (and the terrible maul call by the refs), and that brain dead, insipid performance on Friday night defines our season. It's a hard road to the final from here.

Blues were dominant all over the park

Righto, match report after I've got home, cooled down and had something to eat and drink. Blues were dominant all over the park. Scoreline didn't reflect it. Refereeing was spectacularly incompetent at times

Well, shit I'm still steaming

I'm pissed, and the reason is that all of this was called in advance. Players picked out of position, poor game plan and dumb rugby - everything we feared about Foster's All Blacks.
