    Nighty isn't one of the best wingers in the comp but he is still the best winger at our club. That is why he is still very important to us and I feel those saying that he should be hooked don't understand that.
    Nene/Mann/Aitken/Nighty is our best back line right now.

    Yep agreed.

    Nothing I saw today suggests anyone from our reserves should be replacing him. Even Lomax who is an obvious talent needs at least half a season in ISP.

    Although there is nothing stopping us looking externally for a better wing option.

    Yes sure - I agree that there is more to it as you suggest. My comment was just relating to his speed. He is quick compared to Nightingale for example but is no speedster.

    Purely based on today's performance, I can see Millward & Mary begging Flo for another year in 2019. He's the slowest winger by far in the whole club, yet twice as good as his closest rival.

    Herbert, Sele, Ford all played well.

    Field's defence is non existent.

    Unimpressed by Nicholls as possible replacement for Hunt during SOO.

    Mann should replace any one of Flo, Lafai or McDonald. He is next cab off the rank.

    Hoping Sele and Host will be given time in FG as season progresses.

    There was a normal penalty ~10 minutes until FT that was within kicking range.

    I know its only one match but it does not look like the young backs people have been calling to be put into first grade are up to it. We desperately need to sign a top quality genuine first grade outside back with speed.

    How good is Jackson Ford though, he is looking like he could take the next step. I thought along with Sele that they were the two who looked like they could be in first grade.

    Lomax might be ready after a few more games in ISP, but that’s about it. Defensively, guys like Field and Garrick aren’t ready for the NRL. Mann is really our only genuine option to replace one of the starters.

    Hence I’m still scratching my head why we didn’t have a crack at either Johnstone or Gagai, especially when Dugan signed for the Sharks ( and we eventually let Thommo go).

    Surely we had the cap space?

    I think that its going to take more than just a few more games for Lomax to be ready for first grade. You're right, Mann is the only real option we have at the moment.

    Ford is a great young kud and a extremely hard trainer.
    Given time he will be ready.
    Agree re sele.
    I think sele offers more than luc dose at the moment.

    Common sense there Samy, there will be rust early on and there are new combinations to be formed at this level too.

    Did Pereira play?

    Thanks all for the updates and insight to the players mentioned as first grade material. Early days yet so next 5-6 games will see improvement across the team

    Thanks for the in depth updates @dragonssamy61.

    Seems like a few player still have a way to go in pushing for a FG spot. Happy to hear Sele played well. He should come onto the bench for Mann who should take Lafais position if Mary had the stones to do that.

    I'm starting to agree, which makes me worry about competing against another side that muscles up on our forwards, other than Dufty, we don't have any other open play try scorer, IMO.

    Jesus, how quickly we forget. Mann at worst should be playing on the wing if the coach only gives him 7 mins a game.

    Life's good
    Mate more likely he will replace luc.
    Luc played the second half today.
    Was ok but nothing sensational.
    I don't think any change but lafai and McDonald need to lift.
    Also depends if host is back he will come into calculations as well..
