    Until Too is fit I’d have Whare and Crichton in the centres and Naden and Staines on the wing.

    Congratulations on your monster win guys.

    Way to fast for us.

    Charlie Staines is a freak of a player.

    Your backline depth is unbelievable at the moment.

    You are a huge chance for the title this year!

    Staines scores four tries and I reckon his best moment was the try assist. Didn’t get driven backwards like I was expecting with those early runs

    Hes a real talent staines Normally a fullback but did an excellent job on the wing today.Hes only 19 and still growing got plenty of speed needs to add a few kilos for 1st grade though.Mansours errors are a worry and his lack of speed means this should be his last season.Even mcgrady is a good outside back so we are not short there.Id punt mansour whare tamou at seasons end resign the young guys.

    I'll take the slight drop in defence for the much improved attack. In the give and take there I think it's a positive improvement.

    Spencer played like a guy who has been playing first grade for years and coming off a long-term injury. He tore the Sharks apart and his effort in defence was impressive. He is ready for first grade now and its great to know he will keep the middle forwards competing for their position in the side.

    Spencer seemed to break at least one tackle every hitup. A very exciting prospect.

    The best Staines play was ironically his try assist, not one of his tries. That speed down the sideline to set up Edwards was awesome.

    Agreed we've desperately needed someone who can do that.

    I dont know. But its easier than Roosters.

    Ikavalu scores 5. But Bmoz and Tupou are straight in.

    Thanks for your kind words. I was concerned about this game as Cronulla have been our 'nightmare' team. Good luck with the injuries and thanks for the game today.

    Tyrone May just a natural footy player,transcended well from hooker to lock today.

    And that pass from left to right to Staines was a beauty.
    Not many can throw that pass from a standing start and hit their target on the chest.

    Also... Gotta say Edwards has really evolved his game this year. His ball playing isnt Moylan like. But f**k me dead has it improved. A gullback getting the ball out wide has unlockedt backline and he's still really good at kick returns. His ball running isnt yet at its best. But hes still more dangerous than ever with his ball playing

    Breaks tackles for fun. He’s very quick over 20-30m. If he makes a linebreak(which he will soon) from that distance he will score.
