    I do sort of agree but Clune is not that much better
    I agree just f**k Norman off , maybe hunt will respond to a coach who knows something and can guide him

    who the f**k was Fogarty and he played better than any of our halves including Clune
    Clune tries hard but he is no saviour or premiership winning halfback

    1. Hunt is a shell shock and will never recover
    2. Norman is a bludger and will never give it his all
    3. Clune in a very limited time and in a very refined space has shown more sense of space and urgency than either of them
    4. Hunt & Norman have had how many games to prove they can’t cut it as against Clune who feeds off crumbs offered by the aforementioned?
    5. Clune is basically restricted to 1 side if the field and had already found a way to get an edge player into a hole and avoid the non passing centre EA where the others ignore the edge and feed the ball hog.
    6. Clune in the end may prove not to be anything more than a very capable back up where Hunt & Norman haven’t even mastered that.

    Much needed time has been pissed against the wall due to a flawed mathematical hypothesis which we have all seen & heard before.

    Hunt, Norman, Aitken, Merrin should all go.
    Dufty
    Rava
    Feegai
    Lomax
    Pereira
    Sailor
    Clune
    Kerr
    Mc Innes
    Ellis
    Host
    Ford
    Frizz

    Brittain
    T Sims if fit Lawrie otherwise
    Fuimaono
    Blacker

    We had 2 games we could have gained knowledge from which might well have changed our opinions but alas we still remain in the dark.

    Agreed mate. Also he didnt scoot the ball once out of dummy half at all last night. If he had run the ball a bit and linked up with forwards in their red zone last night, we would've got them.

    They were ready for our spread which starts from his long passes to Clune/Norman and then to Dufty all night and as per usual we had no Plan B which should've been attack around the ruck.

    Hard to know what I’d happening with Sailor but as he had had some 1st grade experience I went that way
    You can’t blood them all at once.

    Licking my lips for this one, so much to play for. So many questions, will our 3rd hooker Brittan get another run for 2 minutes? will Sailor and Blacker make the reserves? will our forwards have anyone to off load to or will they just not offload at all? What an enticing prospect!

    Will Rava run in off his wing three or four times and will he let in a try or two?
