Good to hear thr Coach give a wrap to Josh Coric. He's going to be a very special player for us and I hope we lock him up long term. Wouldn't surprise if he was elevated straight into the top 30 squad next year.
As usual plenty of straight talking & positivity from Hook.
Good points. Back in the bad old McGregor days I wondered how a team could have so much talent but do so poorly. I was one of McGregor's biggest critics. My thinking was get rid of him and we could only go up.The only comment I'll make as far as Hook goes is, if his major role is culture and motivational, even his staunchest supporters would have to admit that, at the moment, he certainly seems to be failing in those aspects, considering he himself, specifically warned the players not to get together and get on the drink after the warriors game and they went ahead anyway, resulting in the debacle at Vaughan's place.
My biggest concern with Hook at the moment is that even though he is talking. the team don't seem to be listening.
I'm hoping that the local crowd gives us a warm welcome and urges us on to play really well. Well enough to scramble for a win, that would be nice for both Griffin and Hunt and of course the rest of the team. It's Tariq's 200th game as well so, go get 'em boys. Play hard, tough and enterprising footy today. Don't believe it's a fait accompli that the other team is better. You can do it!!The stage is set for the ultimate underdog story on the field that forged Ben Hunt's dreams as St George Illawarra take on the Rabbitohs at Browne Park.www.abc.net.au
Wont happenJust a gut feeling but JP to the wing, Beale to the centres, Corey Norman medical sub. Sullivan to take over the goal kicking duties.
