    Round 15 vs Raiders

    Our average play the ball speed was 3.95 compared to 3.6. Tells me, at least partially, that the Raiders were holding us down longer than we were them. Realistically, I thought the Raiders should have been pinged far more than they were. Having said that though, that was some of the worst...

    Damned if you do and damned if you don’t

    Did you watch the game before the main game on the weekend? Who does he replace players with? Who is there that is putting up their hand to take a spot in first grade? If everybody thought the NRL side was the worst game they'd seen, they didn't watch the reserves in action before that...

    Matt Dufty

    What's the poor judgement, timing management? Both Dufty and Norman have known for weeks they weren't wanted. Consistency has been poor all year so them being told they aren't wanted hasn't changed anything. Especially given Dufty's performance last week (albeit against a poor team). What he...

    Round 14 v Chi wow waaz

    Commentators just said the team has conceded average of 30 points per match. As you say, no good backup.

    Round 14 v Chi wow waaz

    Yeah I agree. It's really in slow motion with some of the players. A couple trying really hard but most don't look interested.

    Mary is gone - people need to get over it. If you can't see we are heading in a better direction then that's your problem. Recruitment and retention, IMO has been better since Hook came on board. Again, if you think it isn't, that's your opinion. What's the indicator that the fans have voted...

    So you've never seen a player continue playing in a position for a team even though they are leaving at the end of the year?

    Divisiveness? So because the fans see something in a player, the coach/club/staff should listen to them and keep him? There's always going to be situations like this. Especially when the fans don't know the full picture - what's going on at training? What's being said behind closed doors...

    Matt Dufty

    Agreed OT. Some of the posts regarding Hook in here are bizarre to say the least. Massive rants about his ability as a coach (half way through his first season with us mind you) based partly on a decision not to retain a player that, in most peoples eyes, does have obvious deficiencies in his...

    NICKO HYNES

    Yeah it was mentioned on Fox as well when I watched his debut that the Dragons saw him as a future second rower.

    This is spot on. This is what people aren't seeing. Before this season it was obvious we didn't have the depth to cover any injuries and may people on here agreed we were thin on the ground. Now those injuries and suspensions have hit, there's complaining that we aren't performing. WTF...

    Cody Ramsey

    I think this is where we are at at the moment. Griffin is making that call and will continue to make that call going forward. There will be players we will let go that many on this forum will cry about. However, we have to place some trust in Griffin and what he sees in a player. He's done...

    Round 11 v Sharks

    Don't discount the stupidity of the NRL and judiciary...

    Round 11 v Sharks

    Agreed. With the loss of players before we started and then we lost something like another 3 during the game plus Vaughn getting 10 in the bin, it was a fair effort. Could we have won that? Definitely, but to push it into Golden Point was gutsy af. We'll be lucky to field a team next week...

    Back to the future with Gerard Beale

    He's not coming forever - he's coming for the rest of the year at this stage on, what I would assume, absolute minimal money. And he's got experience - something we're desperately missing with the current situation. Like I said, I think it's a good move.

    Back to the future with Gerard Beale

    So you think you'd be able to get someone to come from England on a train and trial for next to nothing? If we've got 13 unavailable as it is, wouldn't we already be dipping into the Reserve Grade? Who then would be playing Reserve grade? You've just got to look at the team we've fielded for...

    Back to the future with Gerard Beale

    So what's the alternative?

    Back to the future with Gerard Beale

    We've probably got limited cap space left and anybody currently in the NRL is going to be looking for more than we can likely afford to spend. This is purely to fill an obvious gap short term. If you are to believe the reports we've got something like 13 first graders injured or suspended. So...

    2021 - Squad, Signings, Re-signings

    Spot on. He will be dirt cheap and this will tide us over until we are back on our feet. We've lost A LOT of experience over the last couple of weeks so this will help out immensely. Like you, I think it's a smart signing.

    New rule

    Just to add to the stupidity of this, they didn't pick up anything wrong with the Rav tackle during the game BUT the bunker has a second look and it's on report. And yet they somehow missed this when it was shown a couple of times during the telecast. And people wonder why the whole thing...
