Yes I want up tempo like the Panthers, Storm and Roosters play each week. Gee did I just mention 3 very good teams that'll be there at year's end?So you want high intensity every week for 24 weeks? Is this so you can complain come finals time for dropping out early after playing high intensity for 24 weeks?
We played at a low intensity for 60 minutes and won by 22. You should be stoked we can not even try and win by that margin. Last year when we didn't try we beat the dogs by 2

People been hating on him for a while. Average half thus far, don’t you think?
He was pushing up on the inside pretty quick for the first try too, before the King cut his grass.Also there is little things in his game you don’t really notice, like the Marata try, he had a fair role in it. He got to dummy half and pushed the ball to right / got Cartwright to wrap to the right. He could have made to wrong decision like run, but didn’t.
I don’t think pointing out that a player is down on form and not playing up to the standard he has already shown previously is “hating on him” or making him a scapegoat.
We all k is he can play better than he is right now. He has had lapses of concentration resulting in some really poor unforced errors, and he isn’t creating much in terms of attack either. When he first came into first grade he showed a beautiful short kicking game which resulted in many line dropouts which apart from one on Saturday night has disappeared.
Im not hating on him. I don’t want the club to get rid of him. I want us to persist with him and help him get better. I mentioned that it might be an idea to give him some time in reserves to get his confidence back up, but don’t know him or how he reacts to things so not sure if it’s the right idea. I leave that to the coaching staff.
I really don’t think it’s so wrong to point out that someone is down on form simply because we are winning. There may come a time where his form may cost us a game or two and I’d prefer we rectify it as soon as we can so that doesn’t happen.
I reckon Brown's running game is overated. He runs a lot (averages 106m a game) but rarely breaks the line. He just takes hitups.
Nathan Cleary actually averages 111m a game. Has twice as many line breaks as Brown too. His running game is better.
