    And credit to Sowie too for sticking the boot in. A couple of players who were among the best at what they did but more importantly didn't let the red v be diminished by any circumstance or people.

    Yes indeed..obviously Matt is now unavaialble whilst Mary is around..but for the next coach?
    Someone telling it like it is..as most of the media after one win are backing what the club and patting Mary on the back for making change trying to come out and convince us sacking Mary is the wrong thing to do right now....In Mary we Trust...mate

    Did anyone think that Lomax opened up a bit. Whilst watching the game I thought he looks different today. Did nothing spectacular but was jumping for high balls tried a few things good or bad but wasn’t just being a one out merchant

    Absolutely. Me thinks the "selection committee" may have told him his spot is secure moving forward and has the freedom to actually be a footy player.

    Yes but they could got the ball to him in some backline attacks and earlier a lot more than they did.in lieu of just kicking to him....but I am happy he is where he should be.
    His days at fullback should of never started at NRL level.

    Haven’t felt much pride at all if any of late for this club...but Coops opening up like this has reminded me of why I was so proud in the first place.
    Always a champ in my book..

    Billy Slater ‘disappointed’ by Dragons star Ben Hunt’s underdevelopment as halfback

    NRL legend Billy Slater has weighed in on St. George-Illawarra Dragons’ star Ben Hunt’s performance as his move to dummy half looks to be cemented.

    Dragons former halfback Ben Hunt was moved to hooker in the team’s first win of the season, but Billy Slater believes it’s a missed opportunity.

    “I’m a little bit disappointed,” he told Mark Levy.

    “I don’t know what sort of development he’s had, and what sort of mentors he’s had in that position.

    “I know he was on big money to go to the Dragons but if I were the Dragons, I would’ve said ‘I’ll give you 900, and we’ll give Cooper Cronk 300 to come and spend the summer with you’.”

    Seems like hunt pokes his nose out and gets a little more on the front foot than cam. Hopefully this will lead to a lot more width actually bringing our centres into the game with early ball.

    Another gold star awarded to our McWinLittle coach
    Or is that Millwards fault I forgot
    Then again Poor Widdop had to deal with crap halfbacks from as far back as 2013 until Millward got the best of a bad bunch to us in Hunt and yes that includes Benji Marshall who was also always a 5/8th as well
    what took Billy so long to come to his defence?

    Everyone except McGregor & Millward can see the underlying problems in player development that Mary simply unskills them.
    Dragons should target the Roosters duo of Craig Fitzgibbon as head coach with Cooper Cronk as an assistant role working with our halves & spine players.
    Fitzy can concentrate on the defence similar to the wall he’s developed & coached with the Chooks.

    So why is it assumed that Young will walk in as interim coach when Mary's sacked ? Clearly if he and Hornby had any good ideas they were not taken on by the coach so they should have resigned in protest.Obviously not ! The whole coaching staff ( except Flanno & Sheppard) needs to be under review.
    Would love to know what Agar,Hornby & the journos brother would say now after being under McWrecker.

    Well we have one genuine centre in Lomax for Rd 6

    and another ‘player’ & failed 6 year ‘coach’ favourite

    .... well identified by Cooper as a defensive disaster
    (and commonly known as Turnstile or the Turd that Will Not Sink)

    The symbol of The Waterboy’s failures

    ....and to whom the Media affectionately attribute our right side freeway

    .... whose sole forte is skipping sideways with a palm or head down arse-up forward leg pump (blindly) into the defender in front of him.

    Indeed a non-centre, non-anything really, who bobs up relentlessly without form in Tuesday Teamsheets

    ad fuc/king nauseum

    ...The ‘coach’s’ Lovechild ‘centre’ who cannot:

    • pass (by any known definition)
    • set up a winger
    • try assist
    • defend laterally
    • read backline play
    • support a break
    • offload
    • position to help take a bomb
    • infuse confidence in his winger
    • grubber
    • kick & chase
    • create his own holes
    • be creative in any way
    • redress a failed tackle
    • look for support
    • cover defend
    • etc eh Coops

    A player whose relentless selection
    without justifiable form
    has singlehandedly stifled:

    • the potential development of several juniors (ongoing atm)
    • the retention of promising juniors
    • creativity in backline attack
    • renewal & change
    • fluid movement of backline
    • variety in wingplay options
    (cutout passes invariably have to bypass him)
    • bench options when rarely benched
    • the incorporation of fullback into backline moves

    So Coops, you’re dead right mate,

    .....but your intervention would’ve been fruitless
    because apparently, like McFail, he’s just plain dumb
    - with no footy smarts at all.

    Like begets like in the low IQ stakes

    (Cam & Adam must have to communicate in monosyllables to him
    - or with semaphore, paddles & single letters like ‘W’ or ‘D’ as per McFuc/kwit himself)

    & it rankles me no end
    that the imposter has Gasnier’s No 3

    ...& if kept,
    will cost us probably one or more of the Feagais, Schiller or Esau
    - even Ramsay
    as Mc Fail does the usual shuffling to keep the Turd

    He just falls into your beloved ‘loyalty’ syndrome cum category eh

    Webby
    On your
    DAY 72

    .... Sorry, but I got a bit sidetracked by another legend’s critique.

    Coming thick & fast ATM aren’t they?

    Despite your daily blurbs to right the good ship Gordon Enterprise
    ( Where’s Andrew BTW?)

    Geez these Titans must be a worry
    - and due I’d reckon

    ... and Macca has that knack of playing teams into form eh?

    Still no truths on Waterboy’s status?
    Best kept in-house if he’s in the out-house I s’pose.

    Yeah stick to the merchandising & membership delusion
    while the 30,000 wait for Hoops’ next leak

    Any postcards from Bruce on his Wreck Island Estate, Bermuda?

    Keeping his head down & fingers crossed,

    .... & lots of Hail Marys I guess

    Imagine Matt watching Aitken make the same mistakes year after year....If we find it frustrating, he must be pulling his hair out.........
