    If only he could play with skill, timing, brains, commitment and a kicking game he'd go alright

    Seriously though, he is gone and has been for ages. A change of scenery frees him up and gets us away from him.

    Hopefully we put his, Packers and BJ's money towards, tacklers. Sack everyone who is a shit tackler and just buy people who can tackle and a few props to play bash and barge. Stuff attacking footy, we have no decent halves anyway, so sack the pansies and play ugly footy.

    Most of them, yes. He was passive, once again, in both defense & attack.

    a shocking game. His go to play with the ball is to walk 2 or 3 steps sideways and drop a predictable pass back inside to a flat footed forward.

    A draught horse runs with more passion and vigour

    That is pretty harsh criticism of one of our best two players. I have Luc and AD as the our two best players.

    Yep Douiehi has heaps of holes in his game right now but he has more upside than basically all of our players.

    I agree and I have been supportive of Brooks for awhile
    Moving him on would probably be best for both parties. It’s time to go in a different direction

    We should try the Ricky Stuart approach. Those Poms are tough pricks

    I even mentioned at the game I thought he stifled what little attacking opportunity we had in the 1st half, game plan or not, the ball just always stopped with him

    our halves were far from the issue anyway. Our lack of passiveness in our line speed and effort as a TEAM was embarrassing for first grade

    Probably fluff. I don’t see how that swap automatically fixes our line speed, or atrocious edge defense

    I'm all for change at halfback going forward but it was by far not Like Brooks who was really to blame on the weekend. It was just the sides defense and the starting pack was bad early especially the front rowers. Like yes blame Brooks from a season point if view but not for this game.

    You’d be surprised what a talkative halfback can do.

    When Prince was at his best with us he made a lot of ordinary players look very good..

    Yeah but Reynolds?

    feels like a stop gap solution and we’ll be back to square 1 again in a year or two

    Souths & Brooks would be the winners in that scenario

    it’s a con act. You’ll be expecting that Souths bloke but instead it will be “the competitor” coming back from England. Now with 50% more injury problems.
