    Moga has had a pretty poor game so far, but to be fair to him this is his first game and hasn't had a full preseason either. I'm sure he'll come good during the season.

    I’m very impressed with Ponga’s positioning.

    So much for Guerra talking about body language at training. Nothing but gasping with hands on hips.

    And repeat for second half.

    A lot of work to do unfortunately.

    Lol too easy. Guess we haven’t done any defensive training again for another off season.

    To be fair it’s a brand new team so combinations are going to take a while to develop + the Eels have been pin point.

    Remember when we won 44-0 against Canberra in a trial last year? How did we go in the regular season?

    Trials don't mean a whole lot guys, it's basically a new team and we're playing against a much more settled team that made the top 4 last year. Let's all calm down and give the team some time to gel both in attack and defence.

    We’re just out of puff now. Too much lack of possession playing a toll. They’ll learn from this.

    George Rose could step his way through this knights defense.

    The abilty to hold, carry and use the ball is non existant.

    We find ourselves doing what we did last year - simply trying to hang on then get tired due to huge defensive workload.

    This. This is a great kick up the arse. Who kniws what the training fatigue has been like?

    We seem to be blowing after "the best pre season ever" ha ha!!

    Exactly. With all the hype of how much we were gonna improve due to our signings this will be a good reality check for them that new signings won’t just improve a team. It’s still a long process and they need to work hard on their combinations...especially in defence.

    I also think we have overlooked just how good Parra have been...

    The 19 yr old rookie by far our best.

    A few others need a kick up the arse before R1.
