    I'd suggest if our right edge wasn't D grade CRL level we'd not be discussing the dropped bombs, honestly.

    How you defend an error is the most important thing, not so much the error itself (especially 'forced' errors) and we've been worse than useless on that right edge. We've compounded the error pretty much every time.

    Probably...but in the meantime I’d be looking to move him on and recruiting a genuine winger. One that can goal kick would be nice.

    Hoffman was woefull
    MJ was woefull
    RJ was exposed badly

    Our backline looks slow. Gutherson is not a half but no other options

    Team was out coached by a guy who knew our weakness and exposed us badly.

    Hayne is very good at the back defensively because he’s a smart footballer. Hayne’s flaw as fullback is his work rate and effort on effort.

    I'm glad I made the decision to come home after work instead of heading out to ANZ tonight. I'd be absolutely filthy right now if I had been out in the cold for that.

    I'm still filthy, don't get me wrong, just not as filthy.

    Agree with all that except Hayne is a better option at 6 than Gutho.

    He is also 10 times better than French at fullback

    I'm worried about Gutho.... There are times when he looks like he wants to make something happen, maybe switch the point of attack or he spots a half gap that he wants to take advantage of but he's just not quick enough. Last year he was making those plays. Hopefully it'll come with more metres under his belt on the knee that got operated on....

    Frustrating because everything pretty much came down to that edge defence.

    Attack was better, energy for the most part much better, forwards did the job....that f**king edge was absolutely disgraceful. Five tries that way out of 8, defend three of them and it's a hugely different game.

    Taka back to Wenty and Hayne to 6 (if Moses is still out) with Gutho at centre, get Niukore or Gower on the edge....

    You’ll get no arguments from me on that. Probably an insult to D graders everywhere, if anything!

    I haven’t read most of this thread so I don’t know what others may have said but I’m not suggesting he is not of first grade standard but might not be and I am not making that judgement on dropped bombs as I am normally impressed with his bomb catching but on his overall game. However you may not be talking about my comment but just in case I wanted to clarify

    Agree with this except Gutho to the back, French to either wing instead of Hoffman or Wenty.

    Taka is another one of these players, plenty of skill and talent but not good enough to play anywhere IMO. Defence is so so poor and what is his best position???? And as dumb as a bag of rocks. Actually most of the team have no footy IQ.

    I met him the other week. Nice enough guy. Not sure he has any aspirations to play league.
