    I have been a fan since day one and I couldn’t be prouder of the team. They clearly enjoy playing together and it shows in the results. It’s now time to get 100% behind them to help them go as far and as high as they can. Be forgiving when they slip up a bit as now their eyes are firmly on the prizes on offer!!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I understand you can't play well every game, so I'm not worried about the display.

    My main issue was the game plan. Just seemed odd. Inside balls from Cleary (which they handled with ease) & a kick at the end. I can only assume we thought they were vulnerable up the middle but after the 65th minute of doing the same thing, gets a little predictable.

    Even the way we used May last night seemed a little different.

    At the end of the day we got the 2 points & we move onto the next. Leota, Tetevano, Lenui & Edwards were all excellent imo.

    The Broncos were completely unable to make metres with the ball. I suspect the plan was to get in and get out with the two points, and that was never in doubt at any stage. Maybe it was expected the Broncos would collapse in the second half as has been their habit, but they didn't, and it didn't matter.

    Unfortunately, Spencer will be dropped against the Eels.

    I would not be writing the Raiders off tomorrow. If they can jag that win at home the Roosters fate will be out of their hands.

    It is a serious forward pack that could afford to leave him out.

    Ivan didn't seem impressed at being to basic in attack. So I doubt it was the game plan

    It seemed obvious to me that a few players were put on notice last night. Only 17 positions available.

    Leota v Leinu v Tetevano. Can't carry all three on the bench. Capewell also looked like he had a point to prove.

    Yes you can, Ivan did it last night, besides if tigers get their way, Captain Tamou will ensure that will be case, 2021 reserve bench will be 14.MAY, 15.TETEVANO, 16.CAPEWELL,17.LENIU
    With Moses, JFH and Yeo in as the starting middles

    Three Broncos charged by the MRC. Riki 1-2 weeks for the crusher on Cleary, Hopoate and Paix 0-1 for the spear tackle on JFH. I thought the tackle on JFH was the worse of the two, but crushers are the flavour of the month at the MRC.

    Excellent. Did the spear tackle even get a penalty ?

    It was not a spear tackle more a lifting tackle

    I like it(since we have been winning). I can enjoy the rest of the games this week knowing panthers already got two points in the bag.

    I'm referring to Yeo coming back. The starting side is locked. But I doubt Ivan would carry 3 middle forwards on the bench in his full strength 17. One of Leota/Tetevano/Leinu will be removed, more than likely the latter.

    I hate Thursday night games. The only bonus is if we win (which we have) I can enjoy the weekend before it starts.

    Perhaps this was the “loss” that we had to have
