    Forwards are our biggest problem no doubt, but Parramatta1947 is correct in that there are a lot of dumb things Sandow needs to get out of his game. Otherwise he'll cost us matches in games where our forward pack does dominate. Sometimes he comes across quite a selfish player. I get the impression he'd go ballistic if he kicked a field goal to turn a 40-6 deficit into 40-7 just for nailing it right. He sets up a lot of tries for himself but not so many for others, and when he's attacking in the opposition 20 he doesn't have much creativity and is quite predictable.

    I agree with most of your post but the bit in red would have to go down as one of the dumbest things you've ever said.

    I actually think Sandow went much better when Kearney was punted. Naturally he struggled behind our weakest pack in years, but I think he'll go much better next year under Stuart.

    Yep, this. At least he's a chance of learning something and developing his game in the next season.
    And this (even though you were attempting sarcasm).

    Sadly, you were right on the money.
    There has to be a better option than him somewhere.

    Yep, I doubt Kelly will end up as half back this season Avenger. Sandow will retain his spot purely because there's no one better on the books.
