Castrogiavani is amazing!

Post by pogue3 » Sat Mar 22, 2008 4:49 pm

Goode well deserved MOM but Castro was close second for me, even though he had to be blood subbed during game. He was amazing last year. during this years 6N he has been the outstanding prop and today was showing his skills as a good scrummager, tackler and ball carrier (still should have passed to Herring though lol).
If you were going to pick a world 15. He would easily easily be my first choice on the front row

Great celebration for the try and laughed my head off when I found out he punched the ref during a basketball game

Castro is going from strength to strength - what a fantastic all-rounder he's developing in to.

Should've passed to Herring (everyone makes mistakes) but a brilliant game otherwise.

What a find in Herring too! He's our form back rower (and that's a TOUGH competition with Corry, Crane and Croft working tremendously hard) and has settled in fantasticly at Tigers. Loving it.

Great win.

I agree Herring looking really good a mo. As I mentioned in a previous post, Moody is going to have play really well to get his place back

Castro looks like he's bulked up a bit, but retained a decent level of pace and dynamism (his line breaks were v. impressive) - as mentioned, he should have passed, but redeemed himself with his score.

I think whilst Julian can keep the scrum anchored as well as Castro, we seriously miss out around the park when the two swap.

Castro was amazing and yes it was him who punched a basketball ref.

Anyone know what 'niggled' Julian, at the end, with blood around his eye, he shoved Dayglo away when he came to shake hands, eventually shook hands but didn't seem overly impressed with Flo
To The Board ~ you have one season to prove you've got this decision right. More than you gave Marcelo

It looked to me that both Dayglo and White had their heads stuck out of a maul at one point, Flo looked like he took a quick jab at White but it was hard to be sure as the maul was moving and wheeling... JW was definatly holding his face right after and seriously ticked off at Flo.

terrific performance by everyone, but the Castro try was the icing on the cake - had a huge smile on my face.

hope there is a still shot of that wonderful dive - would look great on my desk top!

From where I was sitting it looked like Julian had his eyes gouged. The two lines down his face adds to that idea.

If cited that would end LOL's career. Six months ban!
