Sivo will probably end up playing rugby with Eto Nabuli.
Sivo would be fine on our backline. Issue is confidence and some basics in defence. If a coach like Ivan couldn't fix that then Sivo would be a lost cause.
I would be pretty sure that the Penrith trainers would have seen both his strengths and weaknesses and tried to work on both before letting him go, which suggest that his defense wasn't improving despite extra attention.
If true he'll be playing union in a few years.
watched the esl game last night, Maloney played for the Catalins.
It was like watched the Panther attack in 2019. Only tries a couple of barge over tries. Very predictible.
Jimmy looked quite predictible in attack. Thank goodness he moved on for this year.
Interesting to read the Eels fans Sivo to watch the video of our wingers and the work they do. He is definitely on the nose at the moment. He is virtually unstoppable any where close to the line and yet bringing the ball back he is quite soft which is strange for such a big unit.
Their entire team is playing soft except maybe Brown. They've lost belief.
I thought they tried pretty hard the other night, there last ditch defence was very good, prevented us from scoring quite a few more tries. They just seem a bit predictable in attack and our defence was outstanding.
Yes we were good but they had no confidence to meet us in the physical battle. If they did it would've been state of origin intensity instead we never looked troubled outside our own errors. It's been their issue for weeks now.
Age is the main issue. 27 by the time you fix it he is approaching 30 and slowing down
I have said all year. Flat track bullies someone takes it too them. They can't handle it
Your right we made some errors and missed some decent opportunities which kept the game closer than it needed to be.
I hope they finish 4th prefer not to meet the Roosters in the 1 v 4 both them and the Storm are the benchmarks at present.
I agree. Someone had to sort it early but coaches would've let him go with his natural size and strength.
Hard to argue after the last month. They did fight for the Sharks game but not sure how much the terrible weather messed that game up.
He didn't didn't play the game until 23. Then busy footy, Ron Massey Cup. No ones fault just raw talent but has been worked out by opponents now
Sharks scored more tries in that game so was luck
It's not about us though. We were discussing the Eels. My point was their mentality is shot. Like Franklin said they fold in the face of tough opposition. They can play though when on.
Sivo has an amazing try scoring record and close to the line he is a beast and virtually unstoppable so he has to be given some credit.
Im not so sure. The semi finals will be a new competition and if we do meet them in week 1 we well have to be better than we were on Friday night. They are more than capable of being dangerous opponents.
Egan is making the Warriors better. Has been since Payton took over. Good to see him finding form.
You always had a soft (or hard) spot for Egan.
On a serious note thou he has had a decent season, pleased for him.
Was always a shame he didn't show this consistently at Panthers but it happens.
