    Yep.

    Thats the position we fricken signed him for.

    Kid is only one of a handful that can keep his head up.
    He's a fill in lock at best. he is an elite hooker. Hope our new coach shifts them back to the roles they were signed for. He did "imply" on 2gb, that Hunt was a natural 7.

    I was expecting a loss today but I thought that we would have been much more competitive. Griffin would definitely have been watching this game, if not live he would see the replay, and he is/will be sharpening up his axe I would say.

    Time to make a big culling of the down trodden.

    Yeah he's a gun. Even though people think he's too light to play lock if you look at his stats he still regularly leads our metres gained and especially play the ball speed. His passing game is good too.

    The worrying thing is our forward pack will mostly be the same next year, apart from maybe JDB.

    Host and Lawrie are the only two improving with each game, the rest of our forwards are either going backwards or not offering anything at all.

    We should have told Frizell Mary was on his way before letting him go and sign with the Knights. When we knew Frizell was really leaving, we should have signed Fifita. Penrith will not release Hetherington and we are in a fight for the big O. If Millward has has the feeling he is no longer wanted, he won't be trying to sign anyone.

    I say bring in Griffin now so that he can get on top of the recruitment side of things.

    Griffin should get McInnes some help with his dummy half game.

    Just as well Host missed this game but i'm sure his defense would have been handy. Ellis & others looking very ordinary

    Griffin is in already make no mistake. I doubt any recruitment decisions are being made without his approval.

    You know, IMHO Frizzell has reached his peak & is on the downslide. Frustrating that he cant pass.

    Agree but Host has heard nothing from the club about resigning.

    It's all spilt milk now but if he did stay, I'm sure Griffin would have made some positive adjustments to his game. We still have T Sims and Vaughan and if we get De Belin back and McInnes playing well at hooker, maybe we are halfway there.

    In my opinion we need two top grade hard nosed props and a marquee right edge forward. If we don't get to see De Belin, then we need a topgrade lock as well.
