    Packer and Matulino along with Reynolds warmed the bench too long.

    Until that's fixed they won't win footy games!

    If only Fonua had the brains to try and step back on the inside....

    Losing games like this will probably see us just miss the 8. I can see us finishing 9-10th

    Albert hasn't been sighted.

    He has exhausted a box of tissues over Radley.

    You've had a mixed bag of calls this year but so have we!

    As I said when your 2 forwards you rate highly warm the bench you let them get way. Your coach needs to be better. Why only play Josh Reynolds for 46mins and have plod Elijah at hooker?

    They've lost 5 of their last 7 and until the coach fixes a few things they may struggle!

    His bench rotations are not up to standard!

    I'll say you'll finish 8th! If the coach wakes up!

    When you’re a defensive minded side who struggles to score more then 2 tries a game the majority of your games are going to be close. They are always a lottery with a bad bounce or dud call possibly deciding it. Early in the year we were winning them but since the Knights game we haven’t. It’s up to us to be a good enough side to take those 50/50 things out of the game and win it on our own. The only way I see that happening is if we get Mbye and Taylor never plays hooker again, otherwise our attack win continue to suck and we’ll probably just miss the 8.

    We’re missing a quality dummy half. I think benji is no longer the answer, back to bench or reserves

    Reynolds should play five eight but we have nobody at hooker sooo

    Losing nofo didn’t help also because Fonua is Aids on the wing

    That JWH tackle was honestly the slowest i've ever seen. He's many things but he's not a great actor. "Everyone onside? Yep, cool....i'll get off slowly now" Right next to the posts too. lol

    I think I preferred it when R20 just trolls instead of talking serious and making some sense

    Victor Radley by far the best player on the field and great first game back from Daniel Tupou ,both players also responsible for great try saving tackles.

    Radley is a future rep player. That tackle he made on Matulino where he cut him in half was something else

    If you drop Benji though then Josh can play halves but you've no hooker of quality.

    What happened to Mcilwrick?? Surely worth a try!

    Yeah Fonua should be kept in the side at centre but he's ordinary on the wing under that high ball and his confidence drops.

    A tough match next week against the Sharks and your attack needs to be looked at as well as having your starting props on field longer!

    If Souths play the Tigers I'm stoked if plod Eisenhuth comes on and Matulino warms the bench. Plus I'm stoked if Elijah Taylor is there. Even when in the forwards sometimes only makes 20 metres. You have to be better than that I'm sorry. What lock besides that innthe NRL makes on,y 20 odd metres?

    With the state the Dogs are in fighting for the spoon and Morris out I would be shocked if they release Mbye. In saying that though who knows with the Dogs. Their management is in tatters.....
