    Yes, we made too many unforced errors and lost the game. So many other games the same and you cannot blame the coach for those stupid errors.

    Again and again, it beats me as to what they would be doing at training. Practise makes perfect - kick high balls to the wingers, centres and fullback in sunny, wet, windy or whatever conditions, just do it. Don't let the ball bounce otherwise put $50 in the kitty as a penalty ffs.

    Was Kaide Ellis at the Panthers when Griffin was there? He has been solid, he may be signed on for next season if Griffin knows what he is capable of.

    Don't mind Ellis in the starting side over Lawrie. Rav has to be being rested, surely not dropped! Excited for Cody though. Disappointed Blacker can't get a gig over Britain considering we've already got two hookers... No wonder we're getting pasted in the middle week in, week out, we're a very small middle.
    Young can get yesterday.

    I reckon Rava deserves to be dropped. He got a good try but bombed an absolute sitter and a few defensive errors. He needs to get that out of his game. Plus Ramsey we need a good look at to see how he handles fg, if he is up to it he can train there in the off season.

    Ditto
    The changes are happening at last.
    IMO Brittain & Williame are McFail era journeyman roadblocks

    Still cant work out why we need a 3rd hooker on the bench especially if he only gets 10 minutes rather have Fui in as another forward.... Will be interesting to see how ellis goes as starting prop especially as he is playing for a contract

    Wise choice playing Ramsey on the wing. Get a taste of it all. You can’t burn young talent and would be too much to ask playing first up at fullback.
    Also gives Rava a well earned rest as he looks like he could do with one both physically and mentally. Let’s see what Ellis can do with the opportunity been given. Maybe seeing Hook’s influences already?

    I believe Brittain selection is for next year and possible teams shuffles. They know what Fui can do. Just my opinion.

    Even more damaging to Ramsey would be putting him on the left wing.

    All I wanted was to see EA dropped for this weekend. Even that’s to much to ask?!
    Wow deano you must of been almighty impressed by his efforts last wkend. Good god give me strength, I feel sorry for periera, he seems like a good player and a lot of upside. But whilst ever he has that peanut playing on the inside of him he will always be looked at as an average winger at best.

    I didnt mind the idea of dean young after his straight shooting at his inaugural press conference but he has failed to do what everyone has wanted that death rode Mcgregor for, using the f*ing bench competently and dropping out of form players.

    good f*ing riddence bring on 2021 and bring on Griffin. Sorry deano take a back seat and watch how it’s done....

    Agree Rava needed the break. Last game he looked broken. Struggled to make any ground and wasn't running anywhere near full pace.

    Might not be popular but i think Rava needs to drop about 5kgs and start sprint training. Some body types just build mass so easily but I think if he stripped down the extra pace would mean he can still maintain impact with more agility and less joint stress.

    Just my 2 cents
