    And ET was enormous. I don't think we've ever had a player with more heart. He's a huge part of our plans next year. We must keep him at all costs.

    The line Aloiai ran tonight was perfect close to the line. I wish we used him and Sue like this more often even chee kam ran good lines aswell. With Fonua and Milne coming and Suli hopefully we see more of it next year.

    You must be Liddell's ole man.

    Mc makes 50-60 tackles per match, stopping breaks, half breaks and quarter breaks. He will do me for the No.9 in 2018.

    well I could say your MM's old man.lol
    I think they both are not up to a decent 9 standard.
    MM has been to 4 clubs,misses lots tackles and I would love a dollar for every forward pass from dummy half.
    Rather have Farah than both of them.

    By the way magpie4ever,I'm a Wests Magpies fan from way back...Lidcombe Oval days,so be gentle ok.

    If he didn't have a lazy bunch of f**kers surrounding him, he wouldn't have to make thenumber of tackles he does. New pack next year, so I reckon he will shine with less of a defensive requirement.

    That's true, our nsw cup team will have a whole new pack so hopefully he will shine next year.

    But I don't understand why he didn't start, we leaked those early points that cost us the game in the end.

    Matt Mckilwrick is god awful and anyone suggesting otherwise is a bit loopy.

    Well, well, well I must be loopy but realise the whole team is bloody awful. Funny, I reckon I know more about football and footballers in my little finger nail than you do in your whole body.

    His defence is great and he is alright but Liddle is heaps better.

    I only like him for his defence

    But I'm not confident with him in attack, handy back up though.

    Once the pressure is relieved in his defensive work his dummy half work will improve dramatically. He is my pick at 9 with the new improved pack surrounding him.

    As I have said before I have young Wheelhouse in front of Liddle as a natural footballer.

    No I'm not. From what I have seen I don't rate Liddle.

    I didn't watch the game until this morning but the 1st thing I did was read the comments here, you certainly get a different perspective when you do. You look for players like Brooks & Woods, you look to see how bad they were, what they did well, etc

    Too me it was one of those games where by if the rorters had scored 1 or 2 of the tries they should have scored, it could have been a blow out, they didn't so that's totally irrelevant.

    Again it was a game of 2 halves, just like last week although it was perhaps 30/50 minutes.

    I thought again that MWZ is not a 1st grade winger (it was perhaps 5 or 6 weeks ago where many were saying we basically had a reserve grade team, he IMO will be playing much more NSW Cup) I certainly do not see how he has improved.

    Brooks, well it is rocks and diamonds but I saw improvement yet again with his defence (24 according to nrl.com) and attack but it's going to be a long hot summer practicing his short/long/banana/grubber/bomb/cross field kicks.

    Chee Kam & Aloiai went pretty well again, I can't see the point in rushing Lawrence back this year now based on their efforts.

    Woods, he stands out because of his hair :confused: plenty of flops but also does plenty in defence, 50/50 game.

    As a team, very good effort.

    Mate MM and Liddle are not in the same class as Farah......even at his age.
    But i will keep my eyes on "The House" in 2018.

    hahaha...youve made my day....agree 100%
    How can a number 9 throw so many passes from dummy half....
    I think Magpie4ever must be a relation to MM pumping up his tyres so much.

    the score didnt indicate the game at the end did it....we did well to get that close.
    We are still not an 80min side,but hope that changes in 2018.
    they bombed 3 tries.....1 from Gordon.
    2 stopped by Teddy and the blatant forward pass from teddy to Lolo.

    Aloiai was very good......
    agree MWZ,hes not the best defender ,Uate embarassed him last week. so nsw cup for him in 2018.
    Brooks...mmmm,theres an enigma...hot and cold,defence has improved,but he cant lead us around the park very well...short kicking game is pathetic.
    Lawrence wont make the 13 next year...Josh A scored a try Lawrence would not have scored.
    Dont care about Woods.....his offloads are few and far between lately.

    Im excited by the Twal Doll though.
    I havent seen him make even 1 mistake so far this year.
    When he builds up hes going to be an asset.
    Playing WC with Lebanon will be good experience for him.......hes signed for 3 years ,so hope we lock him in longer.
    Great effort though on Sat night....
    We should win our last 2 home games based on recent efforts.

    yeah Vic..
    he fits in well there.....needs to work on his passing before he gets a run there though.

    he might do you for a 9 in 2018.
    but plenty here dont want him.
    I dont care if someone makes a 1,000 tackles a game..
    You need more than that to be a 1st grader.

    same as a fieldsman in cricket cant bat or bowl......you just cant pick them in the side.
