FWIW.
I had a night out at The Seymour Centre last Wednesday night to watch "The Dismissal". I absolutely loved it as did my better half. Being from that generation and also having been at Whitlams inagural speech at Blacktown Civic Centre in 1972, I became a huge fan.
If you like that kind of thing Id suggest you dont miss it.
Walking back to Redfern Station at 11pm I was a tad nervous but it was all good.
We want Gough, We want Gough!

I think it increased when you tried to convince everyone that wing was an acceptable position for him. Sure his strengths suit it but there are non-negotiables at every position and his weaknesses meant he isn’t a winger at any competitive level.
He made a grand final on the wing. That shows a high level of performance. It’s not like we had a squad capable of carrying merkins.

If he wasn’t suited to the wing he never would’ve been picked there. Certainly not 28 times. His problem this year isn’t that he isn’t a winger, it’s that he is no longer a first grader.

Proof was consistently in the pudding. There were basics required of a modern winger that Waqa just is incapable of. He only got picked because his perceived diamond moments were better than his squad competitors, and his rock moments on wing were hopefully more hideable than his rock moments at centre (disrupting our own defensive line) but his inability to catch kicks and even more so his lack of effort in running back were always going to bring him undone. Now his diamond moments are distant memory so the less rocky Russell and Simonsson have gone past him

Not necessarily.

Bollocks and you know it.

A problem that you denied during the year at any opportunity... but it's your off-season flip-flop time!
