    We’re not a fancied team so those ridiculous game swinging decision will go against us. That was the one penalty, the ONE penalty all game for markers not being square. Of course it’s in a situation we’re we have the roosters camped in their 10m and they’ve just dropped the ball 10m from where the fcking markers were.

    We weren't good enough. But I have a few questions and ideas.

    Why are Packer & Matulino getting minimal game time, we clearly go better when they are on?

    Lolohea is struggling, I don't know whether he is to 1st grade standard.

    Thompson back to fullback please. Reynolds to 5/8.

    Benji to 9 or Liddle or whoever.

    Taylor @ 13, not near dummy half.

    This...

    I have been preaching this since the preseason..

    MBye to fullback won’t change the lack of pace 2-5...

    They had enough ball to win tonight, yet the backline has nothing..

    Whilst I love Corey, if he doesn't get injured I reckon Nofa scores that last try where Tupou held him up

    If Nofa doesn’t get injured there’s every chance his ineptitude in defence would have gifted the rorters another try or 2.Truth is we have a glaringly shithouse backline & the most inept dummy half in the NRL.Additionally y the f**k r our 2 highly paid experienced kiwi props not getting a lot more game time.

    We over achieved by propping up the 8 at the halfway mark.We have Buckley’s of making the 8 as we won’t win more than 5 games out of the 11 remaining.

    If we don’t get Mbye for next week then welcome back Thompson for fullback. Naiquama and Nofo wingers

    Lolo has had his dash. Goodbye son

    Reynolds starting hooker. Gamble bench utility

    Yep we must make necessary changes to stimulate our sluggish attack.

    Read that Liddle will back, he could have played this week but they gave his sternum a rest so it will be 100%

    Agree Tui gone, he was nonexistent today and isn't as safe as a Corey. Think Nofa will be out. Sadly has to be Kev and MWZ then. We really need to sign a back.

    Would shift MCK back to the bench and have ET at right second row or give McQueen a crack, couldn't hurt.

    Yep, I think Tui is gone.

    I think Benji is the question mark, as to where we can utilise him, probably worth a shot at 9, maybe he can swap with Josh throughout the game. Though I still maintain MM is our answer to the 9 issue.

    I would consider swapping Matulino back to the bench and start Grant (he played well).

    I’d put Kev and Corey on the wings and give Heleta a crack at fullback,at least he is quick which is more than I can say for Lolohea.

    He’s undoubtedly our best fullback.

    The overweight slug LoLo belongs in ISP.

    Cleary needs to recruit 2 speedy 3/4’s.

    I think it’s moreso who do you want stinking up the team, Tui at 1 or MWZ/Kev at 2/5. The last 2 weeks have shown Tui really offers nothing, particularly if he isn’t going to goal kick.

    Another problem that’s emerged over the last 2 games is Packer’s lame efforts.For someone who is supposed to b our forwards leader & who is on huge $ he has been pathetic.His kiwi partner in the front row hasn’t been much better.

    Twal who would b on a fraction of the money that the pair of under performing kiwis are on is clearly out performing the 2 bludgers.The onus is on Cleary to start getting more out of his 2 prized forwards recruits starting this week against a formidable sharks pack.

    Nofo would have been a yard behind the pass.

    Yep...Packer's gone off the boil for sure....Matalino not so much IMO...maybe Rusty came back too early from the knee injury but he's about our least effective attacking forward right now

    Tui is cooked. Had a great opportunity to lead on from the second half last week and went MIA instead. The non effort and getting falconed did it for me.
