    what are you actually talking about?
    the team moved around the park based on better organisation producing one of our best halves of the year. that was chaddy bud.
    better take all those clive churchill medals handed to players in losing sides then.
    shit. just shit.
    their sides lost.
    if you want to continue your unsubstantiated bashing thats on you.
    shows how very little you know about organising half backs and the game in general.
    to say he took the wrong option on most occasions is an out and out targeted lie.

    i see what you’re saying, but there were times in the second half when we were still well and truly in the game attacking on their line and he f**ked it all up with dreadful last tackle kicks. It happened more than once. That’s not the forwards fault, that’s on him.

    Anyway, I can’t stand the bloke but I actually thought despite his shitty second half he was one of our better players last night and made a big contribution to our good start.

    I think on one occasion something happened (a knock on, regather?) and they ended up in a completely different field position to where they were working to for the final play. Therefore everyone needed to scramble and reshape and it was a pretty fruitless play. Some of the other last tackle plays were decent- the ball went to a pretty good spot- we just couldn’t compete in the jump or whatever.

    it’s like people expect 100% and you’re never going to get that from any half or any team. Half you merkins would complain if we had Thurston, Johns or Cronk because we didn’t score off every play.

    Nah the only decent kick I remember in the second half was the one Ronaldo dropped later in the game. Every other kick was either too short or not high enough. I remember Graham screaming for a kick to be put near their posts which ended up going 5 metres in the air and 5 metres forwards from 15 metres out. That’s shit. A premiership winning half should be able to nail at least a couple of these some would say.

    thurston, johns, cronk, Keary, reynolds very rarely get these wrong. They land them about a metre out every time.

    anyway, the loss wasn’t chads fault so it’s not worth arguing about.

    Yeah, he did nail a couple of them, he just didn’t nail the one specific one you’re talking about... possibly. I can’t remember it.

    Yes.

    the halfback plays better with a pack going forward and an actual hooker playing dummy half. Are you new to this sport?

    momentum shift. heads dropped.
    thats an experience ISSUE.
    swift service from our 9 was missing.
    not to be underestimated.
    take any part out of a machine even the low cost ones and the machine can fail.
    the team is a unit.
    do you not know this?
    its chaddy's fault.

    As I have said when Chad is key in spine he fails, less experienced halves actually go better, Clearly has already surpassed Chad

    In fairness mate, Cleary has surpassed every halfback in the comp, I'd even say he's gone past the incumbent Australian half, DCE.
    I get your point, just maybe a better example is needed.

    Chad supporters lol.

    Too funny.

    If he was shopped around not one club with a realistic chance of finishing top 12 nek year would bite.

    His skillset is so outdated its measured in inches.

    If I never see a shitty end over end bomb that has minimal height, zero swerve/wobble and lands 10 meters out in the middle of the field again, it will be too soon.
    Its literally just a drop of the ball, swing his foot through it and just wait and see where it comes down. Pot luck.

    Coach mistake in not replacing BB with Tracy. First half and a good amount of possession. We did not score enough points, SJ and Trindall is our best halves combo with Tracy on the bench to cover three positions. If we had all four I think it would have been closer.

    I just read in Tele again Bulldogs made informal discussion 6 weeks buy nothing has happened since.
    It must come down to what Dogs are willing to pay, from Sharks side it's no brainer to offload surplus player, unless the player is baulking at option.
    The club needs to get this done chance to move player not needed on

    If it's in the Tele only pass the info on if it's Riccio. He is a true Sharks fan and only deals out in the real stuff.
