We just do not have any excitement coming from the spine lately. Most of the better teams have bigger and stronger guys in their spine so that they can easily tough it out and make breaks which is what we don't seem able to do.

Who is the attacking coach? If it is Flanno then he can leave when his deal is done.

I hope that our Recruitment manager has not invested the future of the club in:-

Host
Kerr
Lawrie
Ford
Fuiamaona

We are in trouble if they have.

McInnes is a hooker and a bloody good one as well ....

Anyhow tough job for the new coach next year.

Cowboys will be a tough old slog as well.

Not really, they will beat us. Fell over the line against the donkeys who were flogged tonight by the chooks, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory against the Titans, fact is we are very very ordinary.

Cowboys lose tomorrow to the sharks and it will be 9 in a row. Load up on em next week $$$$$$$ coz if we play like we did tonight it will be a guaranteed loss. Now that’s f**king embarrassing if it happens!!

No spark, no zip, no creativity.
First problem that needs to be addressed by the new coach.
I have said previously that IMO we would do better without Hunt & Norman

Neither can control a game yet both get more than their fare share of ball yet do very little with it.

While ever they are in the side we will defer to them and get little or no reward for doing so.

IMO let Clune run the ship and he can only do that if the others aren’t there.

Yeah norman did nothing and also lomax and dufty didnt do much either. We had so much ball but no attack. Rava was good in patches BUT he is not a first grader

Really, Clune had his worst game tonight. Looked out of his depth.

As I said whilst the others are on the paddock they control (lol) the game and Clune plays off the crumbs they throw him.

Hunt at 9 wanting to play 7 is never going to do him any favours.

Sure it wasn’t his best game but I believe he deserves the benefit of the doubt for the moment at least

The others have had plenty more chances than Clune

Yeah I agree. I personally think Clune is getting shafted by those 2. Every time the ball went to slim shady on the 5th for a bomb I seriously wanted to punch my tv screen. So over him

So who would you grumpy old bastards include instead for next week?
I’d be happy if he played Clune as a traditional 7, Sailor at 6, Feagai for EA, Blacker on the bench wouldn’t hurt considering Merrin got 8 mins??? Korbin last week 9 mins?? I thought we sacked the moron coach?? Not asking for the wheel to be reinvented but Young can’t keep picking the same shit every week. May as well bring the bald one back if it’s the same shit over and over
