    Pre COVID, Sharks would be hosting us at our own home ground in Kogarah. Likely outnumbering Dragons fans as well. The Club has dodged even more embarrassment ... but I’m sure they will continue to surprise us with more hits!

    Speaking out against Mary is the first sign that you’re not a true fan.

    Plenty.

    We don’t have Ransey in our top 30 squad.

    We could lose the match due to disqualification.

    11. T Sims
    12. Frizell
    13. McInnes


    14. Merrin
    15. Lawrie
    16. Ford

    Why do people insist on putting Ramsey into their team lists!!!!!

    He is ineligible to play this year.

    Can we find another winger rather than keeping Rava?

    I’ve been an advocate to bring youngsters in slowly and not in groups - but this season is gone, it’s time to see what’s what for the future. In saying that we still need a slight mix.

    1. Dufty (let’s see what he’s got with the new rules)
    2. Ravalawa
    3. Lomax
    4. Sailor (not a centre but let’s get him in)
    5. Saab
    6. Hunt (on to much coin to be out of the team)
    7. Clune
    8. Vaughan
    9. McInnes (leave him at 9)
    10. Frizell (in the team but in the middle)
    11. Sims
    12. Ford (check him out in his position for next year)
    13. Sims

    14. Fuimaono
    15. Lawrie
    16. Kerr
    17. Norman

    18. Graham (love him as a player, but if he’s not here next year it’s time to move on)
    19. Merrin (unless he’s captures his form from 5 years ago he stays a reggie)
    20. Pereira (decent player just not the future)
    21. Aitken (time to move on)
    22. Lafai (time to move on)
    23. Host (time to move on)
    24. Luke (time to move on)
    25. Blacker (given a go at some stage this year)
    26. Britain (back up)
    27. Williame (back up)
    28. Lovodua (not really sure why he was signed in the 30)
    29. De Belin (straight into 13 pending court outcome)

    Dev. Ramsey (given a go post June 30 or when allowed)
    Dev. Sullivan (given a go post June 30 or when allowed)

    Norman-Dropped ball.
    Pereira-Dropped ball, runs around in circles and lost possession.
    Williame-Obviously injured prior to and during game.
    Lomax-Poor defence and lacks confidence.
    Ravalawa-Could not take high ball and thinks he is a battering ram
    Hunt-Is getting worse with every game.
    Clune-Pass mark for first NRL game.
    Graham-Tries hard but dropped ball.
    Frizell-Gave away stupid penalty goal.
    T Sims-Tried hard.
    Kerr-Tried hard.
    Mc Innes-Tried hard.
    Vaughan-tried hard.
    Lawrie-Just defended.
    Merrin-Tried hard.
    Luke-Made valuable ground.

    I thought Norman went ok at FB, worth persisting with. Most of the time his positional play was spot on, decent run backs and nil dropped bombs. Let 1 bounce but so does Dufty, Lomax and every other FB

    I don't want to promote any youngsters to the team. All it will do is make them think this style of football and this sort of result is acceptable. I would rather leave the current group to the end of the season and then have a clean-out. We are so far behind other teams this season is gone anyway.

    Can’t they all fake COVID and then forfeit the game? Apparently if you leave your wireless headphones in, it raises your temperature incorrectly. I reckon the team should provide all these knuckleheads with headphones before the game and be done with the game.

    Well you heard it here first.

    I have never seen a side so bereft of anything that resembles a set play or rehearsed move so I am now advocating for the reinstatement of Tim Lafai.

    Williame is an absolute hack and I say that at least the Lafai flick gave us some tiny glimmer of hope that something might come of it.

    I'd actually move Rava over to join him on that side as watching two feet trying to catch a Lafai flick would be most entertaining and the odd falcon or 10 would help put a smile on our faces .

    Watch the sharks tank the game to relieve the pressure on Mary. That would be a boss move.
