Could so easily have given it to Harlee again for his outstanding handling of the difficult Wood, or Ryan for another fantastic performance but have gone for Romaine who put in possibly his best performance in a Bees shirt and did things with the ball which were worth the entrance money on their own.
For me Romaines positional reading of the game and his looking for the unusual has always been his stand-out quality. I haven't got words to describe his ball skills. It all came off tonight. I know Harley has put some match-winning performances in before, but last night he really took his leadership to another level. Can't see him looking back. Romaine, though.
10 out of 10 for everyone, with just a few exceptions: Jota 9.5 (picky, I know, but not at his best); Harlee and Ryan get 11 for mountainous performances; but Romaine scores 11.5 for vision, imagination and cheek. Never flustered on the ball under pressure, and the accuracy, timing and, above all, weight of his forward passes was, without exaggeration, world class.
Special mention for Rob Green, who also scores 11 out of 10, acknowledged by some of their fans too, apparently.
I voted for Sawyers. Best game in a Bees shirt that I have seen. Also, Woodsy & HD were superb. As mentioned on another thread, HD may have saves Macca getting a red card by joining the protest after Macca's tackle.
