How did rep boys play in fiji match

I am currently overseas so didn't watch the pm - v - fiji match.  Only read the results ., Gutho got a hatrick and Mitch kicked a few goals . 

How did they look the boys ? I know the opposition was Ron Massey cup level without the nrl stars but keen to hear people's thoughts on the boys.  I think Mahoney is origin bound next year !!

cheersc

  • Bit of a walk in the park. They werent really trying to hard. Guth played well but the defence was non existent

  • If they played football they would have beaten them by 80. Too many ball hogs  going one out trying to make a name for themselves. Haas was was the biggest contributor in the one out stakes. Numerous times had the opportunity to offload but didn't even look, just tried to shrug off defenders. Barely any second phase. IMO Australia should have picked a bunch of rookies who are on the verge of 1st grade selection but didn't make the junior kangaroos. Player's like Kaufusi and Utoikamanu and the like. I think they have made a farce in making the junior kangaroos under 23's. I just don't see a player like Chrichton being a JK.

  • They played great, mate.

    Gutho got a hat trick, Mahoney made some good runs from dummy half and Moses set up a heap of tries.

    Brown played how Brown does.

    The opposition was dreadful but the four people in the crowd didn’t seem to care.

    It was a good will game, basically.

  • The best part was the group of Fijians on the hill dancing around in Parra gear and waving Parra flags.

  • Thanks for the update . I am on holidays in Romania  ( something different )  great place ! 

    looking forward to how the boys going in the nines now 

  • Moses goalkicking was a concern

  • gutho killed them, all parra players went well..

  • I rate game like one of those soccer “ friendly” matches . Hard to notice many Semi or Mika sivo types in that Fiji side. They will need a few good rugby converts before they field a competitive side in NSW from next year . It was good watching the Parra boys playing good football and having fun . I loved the Gutho try under the post with both Moses ( the balll passer ) and Mahoney in a line alongside Gutho crossing the line to score . I hope we see a few of those types of tries scored by eels next year . What about when Australia number 2 scored first try and commentator called it a “ Ferguson “ try Lol . Of course Fergo withdrew through injury . The same commentator , after Gutho scored his first try ,described Gutherson something like a “ try scoring machine with 8 tries for Parramatta in the NRL this year “.
