i was amazed by how much we missed them. Honestly feel thats what cost us the game. their energy on their hit ups puts us on the front foot. Add in dyl and we just had nothing.
Its alarming but kinda tells the story about where we are at.
Almost every injury to this team has a huge impact on our performances. Dylan Edwards is a great example. In terms of 'powerhouse' teams we are new to the club. I think we are still working out how to handle the rep season and get our best top 30 possible. The Storm/Roosters are still setting the benchmark (I used to have the Broncos on that list, Ikin is steadying the ship and they have all the resources necessary to re-join the elite teams).
One thing we are getting right is bringing new players into first grade. It has been a long time since we've had a junior perform poorly on debut. They are always ready for first grade.
