They were the better team last night. Brisbane were never in it
The only thing that kept the scoreline close was ill-discipline by Cowboys, especially during the 1st half. Whenever we put ourselves into an attacking position we turned the ball over cheaply on most occasions.

We need to start offloading more and wrap up the football of the ball carrier when we're defending, as we concede way too many offloads that lead to quick rucks and before we know it the opposition are on our try line.

Last tackle options are our Achilles Heel.

Clifford was good last night. We needed this from him 2 years ago.

I wonder if the media up north will dig it in to the Cows after letting Clifford go?

They've re-signed Townsend (who spent most of the last game on the bench) and Dearden (who will probably spend most of this season in QLD Cup).

It's easy to say "well obviously, they are leaving so why play them" but neither player deserves their spot on current form. They'd have been better off keeping Clifford. Knights fans are cheering.

The problem with Clifford, who is someone I wanted the club to be based around as he's from Tully and has all the physical attributes to be a great halfback, is he produces once in a blue moon. We won 3 from 4 without him. The last time he played that well was against the Roosters a couple of years ago.

I think it's in his best interest to go to Newcastle where he can learn from the Johns brothers. Hopefully he does well down there and becomes Queensland halfback some day. Paul Green didn't seem to help his progression and set Hess back by playing him out of position.

Your club dodged a bullet by not signing Green and are improving under Walters.
