    Leadership, coach.

    It is one thing to move up quickly in defence, it is another to bring the defensive line with you.

    Taking the two points when you have a substantial lead and you need to address your for and against numbers is just plain dumb.

    We defended very well against a side that had zero X factor.

    The team wasted multiple field position opportunities.

    it was great to get the win, but we are along way from being relevant in the NRL.

    I was alluding the fact that we just took part in the preview of the NRL premiership gf. Two best teams going round.

    That was such a good game until Jennings went to the bin. We will really struggle next week.

    Agree
    Gold Coast had plenty of opportunities in our red zone and could not execute.
    I am happy we won but GC is no yard stick.

    Was this James Graham’s last in the Big Red V ?

    Not sure, a lot riding.on a few 'events' happening this week imo.
    If those 'events' return a positive (and I'm not referringvto COVID here) result, the most probably Graham would would not only have played his last game in the Red V, but in the NRL as well

    Don't discount him returning pretty quickly in some other capacity though.

    Correct...exactly what I was alluding to....Roosters would need to play badly for us to even get close to them.......

    Undoubtedly, if both teams played to their absolute potential they would win comfortably. If we play to our absolute potential and they have an off night it will be competitive. If we are off and they are on it will be a slaughter.

    Appreciate your reply Dragonslayer , also that he may return in another capacity - his experience would undoubtedly be a tremendous asset to developing our young forwards.
