    rob kearney got a bad deal at the start.
    that italian should have got his marching orders.
    lucky all worked out well and rob got a score tag.
    lots to learn before the next event in 2 weeks.
    good luck

  2. Thanks James,
    Yeah that was a horrendous tackle on Kearney, but full credit to him, he didn’t seem to let it effect him. The piled the pressure on him with numerous high balls and he wasn’t phased. He is turning out to be a very solid player.
