    Anyone on this forum could have picked and prepared a better team than yesterday. I do not mean that in jest.

    Young not willing to take risks or make the tough calls over overrated players so loved by the club and yet so disappointing to the fans.

    Young is a waste of space. Griffin should have been appointed immediately.

    This is my team for Round 20 if I was interim Coach for a week and after the crap that has been happening the past few weeks.
    Simple message, go out and play hard but have fun. Play fast and eyes up footy, look for second phase and most importantly forget everything u have learnt from the past few years of Coaching whilst at the Dragons.
    1). Dufty
    2). Ramsay.
    3). Feagai.
    4). Lomax.
    5). Ravalawa.
    6). Sailor.
    7). Sullivan.
    13). Frizell.
    12). Ford.
    11). Fui.
    10). Vaughan.
    9). McInnes.
    8). Blacker.
    14). Kerr.
    15). Lawrie.
    16). Sims.
    17). Hunt.
    Speed everywhere in the backline (except Rava). Speed on the edges with Ford and Fui. Two massive units at prop and tell Friz to just run hard and straight.
    Bring Hunt in after about 30 minutes and let him play while hopefully all the young guys rejuvenate him. Kerr and Simms to run hard and bring an offload or two. Lawrie, tell him before he runs on for his first interchange that Cameron Smith is out there saying he is a lazy player (Lawrie actually goes well when someone pisses him off).
    We might not win but surely it’s entertaining footy.

    I know then Head should have been appointed Interim Coach. At least he won the Minor Premiership for the Canterbury Cup last year.

    Saw glimpses of backline changes when attacking in the 2nd half yesterday, and well worth persevering with for the last game next weekend. Hoping to see these selections tomorrow

    1. Ramsey 2. JP / Matt Feagai 3. Max Feagai 4. Lomax 5. Rava 6. Dufty 7. Clune / Sullivan

    Hunt suspended, Norman dropped, and Sailor overlooked because he wants out

    I think there were also issues with someone from outside entering "the bubble". Some of our protected species players are in for a rude shock when Hook does get his hands on them.

    Pereira and Williame were shocking along with
    Norman and Hunt.

    The team have shown they are not really interested in playing. Why should I be interested in watching them?

    Here it is in a nutshell, apart from everything else.We have 2 million dollars of our salary cap locked in with probably the 2 worst players ( or players who take the worst options ) Everything else is being effected by this particularly the forwards disinterest.

    Other coaches/Clubs/Managers just suckerpunched The Waterboy

    Took him for a ride

    Hasler’s hospital pass in Slowlai
    & Arthur’s hospital pass in Hairstyle?

    Bennett with Hunt
    Maranta
    Lats
    Graham
    McCrone
    Luke
    Brittain
    etc

    Someone else has posted a better list of McFail’s journeymen

    Much better players we lost due to the congaline of roadblocks sucking at the pap of McMerciful’s largesse with the wandering Lost & Shafted Ones.

    8 still played RD 19 IMO:
    Jordy
    Fui
    Normy
    Benny
    Brady
    Cam
    Rav
    Billy

    All McGregor’s
    - all should go
    ...or will most likely be gone in the next 12 months IMO

    Cam tackles, but is not a captain’s bootlace,
    lacks onfield vision
    ...& creates nothing at 9,
    especially in the opposition 20m

    ... too light to play elsewhere

    Moose for Capt
    We need to spill more blood

    C’mon Tariq - u used to be our hitman FFS

    A bit of the old biff to fire up

    Hammer the shit out of The Accountant Josh
