Trial versus Storm

We’re playing a trial against the reigning premiers (with pretty much a full strength side) without our starting 1, 6 & 12. Calm your flaps drama queens :face_palm_tone3:♂️

Clueless halfback as usual but yeah, let's re-sign him. The players we have missing don't make that much difference. 2020 part II lol

Team looks rusty and disjointed. Hopefully they get that all out of their system by round 1

Does Hoy have a future in first grade? Looked good in his debut match last year, but hasn't stood out any other games. Can't see him ever being good enough to hold a position when the team is full strength.

Ponga doesn't make much difference? :thinking:
Green doesn't make much difference? :thinking:
Barnett doesn't make much difference?
:thinking:

Good to see your insight of the game is just as bad as it was last year

I find his positioning at the back to be very questionable. Every clearing kick from the storm has found grass

Been a few Melbourne plays where you've been left wondering where Hoy was in defence. Doesn't have the the blinding speed, ball playing skills or footy brain to make an impact.

I was waiting for someone to say we are missing 10 first graders or some other outlandish statement.

Sure, down a few troops. Aren't Ponga and Fitz out for a while too?

Mlb without the greatest of all time. They look like they know what to do. Simply a superior team in every facet - especially between the ears.

No matter which way the sandwich is cut, our spine sucks balls even with Ponga back. Our halves probably the worst in the comp.

They don't. Not enough to take us from mediocre to the top unfortunately.

Don't forget Barnett is our enforcer.

Lol.

Green older than the coach coming off a knee reco to save our halfback.

Ponga plays well when we match up against the bottom sides. He definitely has not had many big games v a Melb or Roosters etc.

We are all hoping the coach can somehow produce something with this squad. But he is up against it with the halves we have. Backrow is plain too.

Soooo....

We look flat.
We have less than half the enthusiasm and effort compared to the opposing side.
Stupid drop balls and forward passes.
Pearce is kicking straight to the fullback every time.
We are giving away stupid penalties.
We are leaving huge gaps through the middle.
We haven't put on a set play to get our good attacking players in some space or mismatch.

Is this still 2020?

Mann, Ponga, Lee, Fitzgibbon, Barnett, Green. That's 6 first graders at least

Perfect description of the Newcastle Knights.

Seriously though, did anyone expect any different from this team?
