It doesn't matter who we sign or let go until we have a cleanout above.
Starting with the Coach.
A plastic cone is an upgrade over Aitken. Would never run up out of the line either.
The story has no credibility at all without Lafai's name there.
It's very hard to think of one player that has developed and improved their game under McGregor in six years.
It's an article by The Mole....tread carefully!
Went from fringe reserve grader to regular first grader.
lol. That was a great comment. lol
I rest my case, your honor.
Feel bad for Dufty he is a confidence player and Mary plays him for 3 minutes off the bench and expects him to single-handedly win the game for us. No wonder the poor buggers confidence is shot.
A verbal contract is not worth the paper it's written on.
Asked to look elsewhere.
They might still stay with us.
Who will we get If they leave?
Two reserve grade nuffies who will be just as crap.
Hahah that’s bloody funny
Dufty could probably stay and with good coaching could be a very good player !!! I don't buy and have never bought this size and defensive (at the early stages of careers) bullshit. Barba, Milford, Bowen, Coote, Gordon (just to name a few) never had size and their defence was terrible at the start but they had speed and good coaching and that made the players they were.
We have so many gifted backs youngsters with huge huge wraps on them (Field, Lomax, Dufty, Sailor, Masters, Saab just to name a few but not one of them can go to the next level but yet every other clubs juniors do !! to me that has to be the coaching !!! And one by one we will lose them and they will be good players at other clubs ....... Rueben Garrick is just the start.
And the same of the above applies to forwards ...
We have a coach whose response to bad games is changing wingers over and over again .... But the problem our centres are there every week
where do we go ? How do we win ? I give up ....
Who cares. Its best for all parties they move on.
Only about 25 to go. That includes admin, staff and players.
Shell of a club already. Get on with it.
Lafai is playing like he did get notice. Very disappointing since coming back from injury. I dont recall one offload.
He has been terrible of late, agree with you 100%.
Its not just the off loads, he doesn't get involved at all and when he does makes zero impact. He was known for his swerve / step and as u say, off load. He now offers nothing. Aitken cops a lot of crap and he should, but Lafai should also be called out.
I have supported Mary for a long time but the belief has run dry.
IMO there is nothing wrong with the team, they just don't have attacking structure and their efforts are wasted at the critical moments.
Mary has to own their dismal backline shape.
Proved to be good as an assistant coach (reserve grade Penrith) but not so good as a head coach. With Brown, Griffin, Toovey and Brennan on the market now, I think Brown is a good fit. Maybe we get Ponga and Ramien as well.
Dufty for Ponga
Aitken for Ramien
Mary for Brown
Tin man has had a handful of decent games - overall he has been very disappointing..
If we get Brown, then that certainly rules out Ramien. As for Ponga, that would be a dream come true or even a miracle.
