Just noticed that Philip Sami has been overlooked for the wing spot at titans. Could be a suitable replacement for Jennings.

Just as well they bombed about 3 and had a fair try disallowed........

Us on the other hand without a drop from their fullback didn’t look like scoring.

If the fair try you're talking about was the one off the break from Kikau, the last pass from Cleary went 5 meters forward.

59:59 Cleary passes from around a meter or two behind the 10 meter line, it bounces about 4 meters in front of the 10 meter line, that's about as forward as it gets, despite Vossy's dumb arsed call of "you can't call that forward "

Well they bombed about 4 tries then, still doesn't make our defence look any better. The scoreline flattered us it really did.

Our middle was very lazy at times, theirs wasn't , that Kikau break was a good illustration of it , he stepped both Nrown and Matto with ease, they both had half hearted arm grabs that missed.

I wouldn't say they bombed that try either, Drowns cover was excellent, he got his body in the way on Cleary's left and stayed with him, Cleary pushed the pass, Drown' positioning in the tackle making it near impossible for that pass to go back, There wasn't room.

The thing is you need x factor. We have a good side. We could make the top 4. But I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we made the bottom 4 also.
We have zero x factor.

Panthers have Kikau. You could maybe add Too and Critchon. Roosters have Teddy. Storm have Papenhauzen. Souths have walker and Mitchel.

Teams need an x factor player to win the comp. Its rare a side does it without one. In 2009 we had Hayne and Moi Moi.

Once we lost Semi we become nothing more then a well drilled side.
