    I like how Bellamy handled that presser. Didn't complain, said it was a weird call but moved on, complimented the Dragons plenty

    I have a threory about that.
    I think the original call was a penalty to the Dragons for an incorrect play the ball, the Storm player never got to his feet to play it.
    After the try was scored they realised the penalty should have been blown earlier and changed the call to save face.

    Nightingale at one time was my favourite player but now I'm starting to resent him. He shouldn't have played last year (or been selected in first grade), let alone this year.

    Sorry for repeating myself, especially after a solid performance, but we can't win title with Lafai and these two wingers. Nor the coach, of course.

    We will continue to get burned on the outside, especially down Nighty's wing. And the Storm did it quite easily, could have even been worse. Scoreline flattered us (4 tries to 3, after all).

    Before anyone jumps down my throat:
    1. I was at the game;
    2. I was pleased with the result;
    3. Although quality of game wasn't too high.

    Nighty must go.

    Not gonna jump down your throat, I do however think Lafai was good today and is a bit underrated in defence this year. He and Nene are building a nice combo

    Nighty problem needs fixing asap I agree

    "Nightingale its time"?
    Why start yet another thread to bag an absolute legend of our club that should be celebrated not hammered?
    There are plenty of other threads to have a crack if you feel you need to.

    Yes itโ€™s time.It breaks my heart to say it.He was just frozen there in stages.He just needed to stay on the Fox but he just got smoked.Time and time again.Im sorry nighty you have been a legend of the red v but you have to hang em up eventually.Hope he can see out the season but Father Time is on his hammer and you canโ€™t stop that.

    He will always be a Red V legend but I will hate watching his star wane and his status diminish. It will continue to do so over the rest of the year.

    Do you think Nightingale is going to get any faster this year?

    Do you think Lomax will get quicker between the ears this year than Flo? Sure speed is crucial but not as much as IQ and quick thinking

    I think it is a real shame.
    I have stated that I wouldn't be adverse to Nighty being replaced by Mann but I will not bang on and on like some that he should be hooked.
    A. It's not going to happen so why post over and over that he should go when its clear he will not be dropped.
    B. The guy is a legend of our club that deserves respect. He has done nothing but give his all for our club.

    No, but we are managing it.

    And I really do believe our team dynamics will suffer if he gets the chop.

    Team dynamics is the key to success.

    The wing position might improve 20 per cent if a better winger comes in, but 16 other players may reduce their performance by 5% each, the result will be catastrophic.

    The guys won't like it... and it will show.

    Team dynamics really is No 1.

    Oh come on guys why all this Nighty bashing.

    There are numerous threads that condemn him for only scoring try's from 20m or closer..........wait.......Ado-Carr's try's were all scored from 5-20m out today. So in reality anyone including Nighty would have scored them today because that's what you guys have already repeated said.

    Seriously though, all his try's today were a direct result of Munsters running game. Each time he burnt Friz on the outside, causing a slide in effect exposing Nightingale.

    However, I have to agree that old father time is rapidly catching up with him. I would seriously hate to see him end his career being dumped to ISP or hooked by the coach.
