    FFS!! 88 metres and 24 tackles in 30mins. It aren't his job to offload / pass, his job is to take a hit up and get a quick play the ball, so our play makers can then attack!! Additionally he needs to defend which he is great at!!

    If Mannah was offered to Broncos / storm for $300-50k they would be saying, how quick can you get him here!!

    Answer the question, what changes would you have made to the squad from last year to this year?

    No Hayne, no Bevan, no Taka. We were up against it today.

    I am really disappointed in Norman and Ma’u. They offer nothing at the moment.

    I think we lack leadership/senior players, possibly because of the salary cap TPA stuff and a focus on depth. Moses is too young and new, Norman's a goof, Timmy's too nice, our hookers and fullbacks are not great...

    Isn't that what you were calling for 3 weeks ago? Sack BA and replace him with Des.

    You gone cold on Des?

    I have already said from round 1 I would have kept Jennings on the right, Hayne at fullback , French at wing, not signed Evans. Gone after either of:
    McLean, packer, matalino, graham (and remember pou reckon origin player Napa is on less than 500k and we signed Evans for 350-400k so we prob could have afforded one of them). That would be a start.

    That wouldn't have helped at all.
