    So you’re hoping for a nil all draw. We can’t score points

    Not too sure why so called “experts” On fox, and then on here are being so critical of the attack tonight.
    We played a very tough brand of footy tonight, it wasn’t flash but with 2 of the spine out it never was going to be!
    With the amount of D we had to do I’m amazed how the players went until the 80th minute.

    after tonight I’m more confident of doing well in finals then I was before the game, that’s D was outstanding, the way the boys kept turning up for each other deserves credit!

    Brave but obvious issues that must be corrected for us to progress.
    Sivo. Fu*k him off. Lazy.
    Waqa is no center. Hopeless defensively. Move him to Sivos wing.
    Evans. Send him to Worriers on loan NOW. Fn useless.
    Taka into the centers.
    Positives:
    W Smith didnt kick and was pretty good in D. His passing was better than Stone.
    Field lacks some condition but his D has improved out of sight.
    Niukore, Mahoney and Drown would have made a difference.
    Our condition, by and large was great.
    Attitude much better tonight.

    I admire your optimism, mate - but we are in big trouble.

    This team cannot score points.

    What’s the excuse for the last 2 months?

    This peanut of a coach needs to make changes.If he rolls the same side bar Mahoney returning he is clueless.....

    Sivo has to go and Taka needs to be added. Atleast he brings attack. He goes to centre. Blake to wing.
    I like the idea of W.Smith at 6 also. Jai Field offers nothing at all.
    Also might be worth recalling Alvaro for Evans

    Why do we keep using our missing 9, and 6, as an excuse?

    They've been playing with us for 2 months, and for 2 months, our attack has been anaemic.

    Gronk you idiot.... We had no possession cause they controlled the game forcing drop outs etc.... We couldn't even make it pass the halfway. Forget a line break or try

    Yeah, and? Having good defensive effort should be a bare minimum standard every f**king week. Be happy with that and gloss over our non-existent attack.

    How about our under 8s attacking structure? How about our passenger of a halfback?

    How? Are you going to win 2-0 or 6-2? We've all seen this before. Scrape through week 1 and knocked out week 2

    It’s weird how with Brad Arthur it’s always good attack/crap defence or good defence/crap attack. Why can’t we have a season where we get both right?
