    If Lomax makes the right read, we win during regulation time.

    Ponga is a gem. Very slippery customer.

    If Euan is to play SOO, he will need to learn to read the play ;)

    Gitmo, where are you son?

    Agree but he has had to have learnt to read play much better for the past three years and he hasn’t. His attack last week was outstanding but today he got few chances with the ball. His defence was heart in mouth stuff agai as always, but he was not helped by Hunt and company. Euan is no where near State of Origin material.

    Right side defence is awful. Lomax to right centre a must. Aitken to bench or lock

    Lol. I made a post only yesterday about why fans are clueless.

    Whatever decision Euie made on that play tonight was always going to be wrong.

    Lol at ignoring the 4 dragons players attracted to one knights player on the inside.

    Just ignore that to suit an agenda.
    Haha

    Aitken went low and held on. I don't think I could blame him for that. Hunt should have made that tackle.

    Even the biggest Aitken fan in the world has to admit that there is no drop off if Lomax starts. Aitken is a hard runner so with all of the injuries, he is needed as a utility next week. Make it happen Mary (Aitken's biggest fan).

    Only positives all round with Zac at #3

    Waterboy’s the ONLY one on the planet who thinks otherwise

    - as he & #3 are joined at the hip.

    Turnstile’s last try assist was 2017 FFS - so the cutout passes just sail past his glazed eyes

    Centres are supposed to be the engine room for tries - not windup dolls pointed in a straight line

    Aitkin is a solid NRL player (who needs professional coaching help on his & his other outside backs defense reads ) but doesn't have the necessary skills to cement a role at centre but does as a interchange. Aitkin is still a bit of a media darling so perhaps this is what has swayed Mcgregor but with the injury toll mounting surely the best option is to put Lomax at centre and Aitkin at interchange ?

    That is a really damming statistic. Why haven't our coaching staff reacted to it ? Perhaps the same reason that they didn't pick up that Simms had broken his arm last night until he came in the shed's ? Everybody else at the game and on TV knew there was something wrong.
    Baffling

    From memory there was even a scrum where Sims had to explain to the ref that he
    couldn’t lift his arm to pack correctly FFS
    Such a coaching farce
    The guy’s braindead

    All three players had their moments during the game last night. All Newcastle tries were scored on the right edge.

    Thank goodness we had Norman at 6 who can kick field goals under pressure.

    Shows the bullshit about him being on the cusp of SOO football. Most good judges know this and he hasn't fooled Fittler. Very, very damning statistic for the coach's IMHO.

    There is currently an article on Foxsports about backline spots opening up for NSW and Qld this year. Aitken didn't get a mention.
