Every player out there today had a fantastic game.
SOD was better than I’ve ever seen him. We used the wings much more than I’ve seen this season- neither full back afraid to get up. Second half SOD was playing in front of me and I don’t think he put a foot wrong.
Niko had another brilliant game.
Mid three were solid- in fact, I didn’t really notice Mo in the first half such was the type of game Burke was having. Mo was outstanding in second half. Dicker also good. Power was fairly quiet in comparison but only because everyone else was playing so well.
Also thought Rory had a brilliant game. I was really impressed with him.
Brophy was excellent too, he made some really good runs and I’m sure I remember him laying it off a few times.
back two were good without really needing to be. Hearts were easily the worst opposition I’ve seen at RP in a long time. Even when we weren’t hammering goals past them they offered exceptionally little up front. Naisy was invisible. I was worried about him at the start as ex players always have a habit of scoring against us.
Lary looked more confident collecting crosses and I thought his kicking was better.
What else can I say about Burke?! Said it last season, he, for me, is one of our most important players. When Burke is on form he is unplayable. I think we are usually a poorer team without him.
Absolutely brilliant day. Long may it continue.
