    I watched the Blues game again and Towers did a few nice things, clever, with handball. But he stuffed up the simplw things like the lead up mark. On several occasions he had done all the hard work to get a metre or half metre on his man only to drop the mark. His kicking is normally pretty good o it was a bit of a shock when he kicked out on full. He seemed very nervous. Agood Sports Psychologist would fix that. He certainly has the build, pace & skills but needs to put it together. His defensive game was very good. That is probably why he got another go & the two freaky handball.

    I had a similar feeling about Towers. He was okay, and his stuff ups looked more due to nervousness, or lack of composure as they like to say.
    I think he's kept his place to build his confidence. He will probably be the sub anyway and it's a tossup as to who adds more in that role between him and BJ.

    I'm pretty sure Longmire would say something along the lines of 'keep working that hard and it'll happen'.

    teddy was having trouble a few years ago. He decided to change the way he thought about his role. Looked at all the best FB's and copied how they played. He also got some help on the psychological side of his game. Sports Psychologists don't just work with players who are having issues they work with attitudinal change. This could help the kid. I am sure Longmire and Henry would have chatted with him on Monday.

    Underdogs.
    That's about right in my book - although good value for us, as I really think that we will stretch them down back with Spangher out, and Gibson will be doing well to be anywhere near match fit after what about 13 rounds out?

    The guy's only played one game. His coach's confidence will do.
