11am Mounnt Smart Stadium.
Uele making his debut for Illawarra.
Its a rather weaker team with no Dufty, McCarthy and Lawrie.
Down 16 4 ht
28 14 warriors win
Lol not our week
Not our last 6 years
Once again no Dufty. I would not be happy if I was him
I have forgotten what winning feels like.
Can someone tag our alleged "first grade" coach in this thread.
It appears he has forgotten we actually have team playing in this comp........may wanna tag him in an U20s thread too.
Not surprised by this result.
Players not being used in first grade and not being able to be used in the NSW Cup either.
The amount of players injured also not helping.
The amount of players signed to Illawarra who now are refusing to line up for them based on never getting a run.
The whole set up with our grades is crap.I am sure our coaching staff have no idea.
The under 20's has been fine they had a good season last year and this year hasn't been to bad either but I have to say is Collins being pushed into making a call on Field for fullback as he has been shocking.
The Dragons have never really taken the under 20's that serious with the massive amount of turn over of players every single year evident with basically a new roster this year.
Illawarra again is just a feeder club isn't a traditional lower grade for the Dragons plus the design of the team was to allow the better locally based players a run in a higher graded competition.
Again Illawarra's team line up is dictated by what Mary does and he continually f**ks around with the first grade roster and with the team playing away in Canberra he took extra players who don't get a run and then haven't got an oppurtunity to play at all that weekend.
Whats the point of having Lawrie and Dufty sit out a weekend and not get a game what is that doing for their development.
With the under 20's moving back to just a state based comp and the NSW Cup changing format will the Dragons actually try and take it seriously or just fob it off.
This has happened on plenty occasions this season and last year.
Host, Sele, Milne, Fai Fai Loa, and now Dufty and Lawrie all have suffered the 18th and 19th man sit out syndrome.
I don't get the logic of it.
Separate names with a comma.
