Well I actually agree with the coach as well so why the f**k would I sign your stupid letter?
You were rather ambiguous. You said if Penrith plays their best then they win but if we play our best we can also win so maybe you will and simultaneously won’t write that letter.

Yeah. Who would have thought that rubby leeg isn't black and white.

...unless you are the magpies.

I get that we play better when as Arthur says we play with ‘physicality.’ Is that even a word?

Anyway I don’t think that’s sustainable which is why we are inconsistent. Basically what he is saying is that we beat the opposition with some brutal defence and line speed. Problem is I’ve watched this for 9 years now and that’s all he has. He’s a one trick pony and he assumes he can get over the top of teams with this physicality. But what happens when a team matches it? I know, we f**king lose because we never seem to have a plan B if the players aren’t switched on. We get run off our feet with a team that can use the ball like Souths and our physicality turns to shit because we are f**king tired.

The only positive I took out of that interview is Moses is playing this week.

I don’t think he spoke that bad, he’s just stale amd we’d heard it all before. He has no excuses if we go out with a whimper and I think he knows it because he keeps clutching at stats to defend his record. Saying shit like we’ve won 7 of our last 10 reeks of desperation to me.

Honestly, I do think we just tend to take Souths lightly. Every merkin here is surprised every time they belt us. Why would the players be any different?
Well last week ever player at there press conference said how they are over being embarrassed by souths.

So I don't think it was taking them lightly it was more like they talked themselves into getting flogged again.

Our decent 2016-2017 sides didn't play like that at all. It was more like the way Penrith play now, with the middle just providing settlers and hard work in defence.

The Souths side know how to beat us. They rip us apart everytime. So does Manly when Turbo plays.
We seemed to have built a side capable of beating Storm and Penrith. Like that's been our focus. Problem is we struggle against other sides.
Yes its a simple game but different sides have different strengths. Our style doesn't match well against sides who move the ball fast. Even sides like Tigers give us trouble cause they can move the ball quickly,

So if you reckon wedont need to tweak our games against those sides then expect to lose unless they play poorly and passes dont stick.
I do think you're onto something about assembling a plan to beat the Panthers and the Storm.
