    We live in hope. Mary has hooked him twice.

    Time for McCone to sit on the bench.

    Sorry mate I agree with your post except the bit about Nene needs a rest...if I was coaching him he'd be straight on the pick and shovel for a week ....I'm a fan of his but seriously he needs to get some urgency in his game...he reminds me a lot of a young Justin Hodges..got the talent but doesn't take the game seriously enough ...quite frankly the only rest I would give him is waiting for the trench to be backfilled before he dug it out again

    yep unfortunately your right mate....still cant believe this club of ours that's steeped in tradition and a club that players would have died for if given the opportunity to join have a half back like we do.....defies belief really...and its been there for a while now

    Tom Red v River , I agree on what you have said totally , but you can add we are starting to run sideways again. We haven't got Benji in the team some where have we. We need our halves and JDB running at and to the line and off loading before the line , we are not committing their defence they just compress us with an umberella style of defence and we just play into their hands with 1 out stuff and start forcing passes late in tackle count. Our defence is standing and waiting like 2016 team did, they make a easy 50 meters every set of 6 and in reply we make 30 and kick a shit kick. Aitkin is still out with injury isn't he , but I don't like being synical , but I think we need to let Flo go , he is too slow and the moses kick for French proved it. Bring 1 OF THE YOUNG GUYS UP. Also Simms is not a starter, or should play that amount of mins, play Host or Sele before him, maybe blood Lucuiano . The whole team and Mary should sit down and watch the video's of the first 4 or 5 games of the season and take in what we were doing.

    McCrone dropped. Mann to 7(running & passing). Widdop (kicking & directing). Mary will not make more than 1 change as a) he is stubborn and won't want to be shown as wrong for continuing to select McCrone & 2)he is just risk averse.

    McCrone would be a much better option on the bench than a specialist centre. Could come on as a utility. Won't happen though.

    So if Millward says we're not replacing the likes of Dugan externally because we already have people to replace them, then when the f**k are they going to get a go?

    Mann or Field really could not go any worse in the halves than McCrone, no matter how many people say they're not ready or not halves.

    McCrone isn't a halve's arsehole.

    Why can't we throw Dufty on the wing to give him an apprenticeship like RTS and Minichello? Why can't we throw Reuben Garrick on the wing? Why can't we flick McCrone to reggies and bring Field into the halves? Or Mann? Why can't we give Leilua or Lawrie a run in grade? Who cares if they lose, they're already losing. Plus they already know each other's play styles, they've played together for a few years now.

    We have this really annoying habit of signing players to expensive, long term contracts and then playing them instead of the juniors we've been cultivating for years and inevitably losing them to other clubs.

    The SMH has an article headed " Could the Dragons miss the eight". IMO , yes very easily.

    Next week is a turning point, if he persists with this shithead McCrone, we will get worse and worse.

    I don't see how, jagging another 3 wins from 9 games will just about do it. But we won't win a semi final game, irrespective where we finish on the ladder.
