    Far to much ball to Sailor instead of Clune.

    The 2nd half to me looked like Flanno’s Sharks who were fanatics on completions and pretty lack lustre when all said and done.

    Be very careful what you wish for in a coach.

    Liked the look of Ellis, post contact metres good & not dominated too much but did he get any minutes in the second half :thinking:

    Another disappointing 2nd half curse were we seem to lack size, power, speed and smarts.
    Sadly for our 2 senior rep forwards , Merrin & Sims they have deteriorated to reserve grade quality plodders.

    Might be worth swapping Dufty and Sailor next week to see how that goes...

    Wouldn't take long for McGregor to de-skill him.

    Not if the team plays negative football like tonight. Confidence dropped just after T Simms knocked on after 1 and a 1/2 minutes of first half.

    Roosters only played in second gear tonight and they had plenty in reserve.

    We lack commitment in defence. Great defence wins games and we lack this. Don't know who our defensive coach is but whoever it is should get the bullet as soon as possible.

    I agree - I thought he looked ok. I don't think he got many minutes though. I don't recall seeing him in the second half.

    So Frizzell running in had nothing to do with the overlap being created?

    JP said to remind you to thank EA for the pass that led to the try that got us back in the game oops I forgot that didn’t quite happen

    Thought his effort in the bomb was pretty good too.

    No wear out the other blokes before you put on fresh reserves.
    That was a pitifully 2nd half.

    Yep a three time premiership winning half would make a difference to our side mate, so would Walker, an origin player. Both are better than Clune, Sailor, Norman and Hunt in the halves.

    This team plays like they give zero f**ks.
    Their go to plays tonight were bomb like Lebanon or give it to Lomax and hope for the best.

    Their opposition just sat on their haunches and watched, then took their moments when they could be bothered.

    It was disgraceful.

    He just runs the show and even if he doesn't play, they have players in their squad ready and willing to fill in and compete just like the Storm.

    Keary has the brains to go with his footy skills.

    Our backs would be killing it if our forward defence is better. Last week we lead by 16 to nil and lose and tonight we get to 10 all and lose because we cannot defend. Defence wins games. Attack and score then defend.

    Perfect analysis of a "playmaker" who can change a game.

    The defence will look at him even if he is not in play. He won't overplay his hand. At times, he will appear missing.

    Very smart football player. He may well be the difference between them going on a trifecta.
    I am a fan. Even if he's a Chook.
