Jor­dan Kahu's error which cost Bris­bane vic­tory against the Syd­ney Roost­ers and po­ten­tially an Auck­land Nines ti­tle was a cruel and bizarre way for the Bron­cos to lose and get knocked out of the tour­na­ment.

Sure, it’s easy to crit­i­cise Kahu for not tak­ing his con­ver­sion kick in time, but if he was obliv­i­ous to the tick­ing clock, why didn’t the Bron­cos’ coach­ing staff or his team-mates point it out to him? On the other hand, if Kahu was fully aware of the clock and in­ten­tion­ally ran it down to the last se­cond, then he de­serves to cop it from all and sundry, in par­tic­u­lar from his team-mates.

A thought should also be spared for those who in­vested their hard­earned on a Bron­cos vic­tory. They must have been ab­so­lutely livid.

The irony that shouldn’t be missed here is if the Bron­cos had gone on to win the ti­tle, Kahu would’ve been a big chance of be­ing named the player of the tour­na­ment. GARRY JACOBS, ARUNDEL, QLD
