Re: Jack Wighton

After Jack's 2nd year in the top grade, my opinion hasn't changed of him. Freak athlete, positioning (in spine positions) needed practise but seems it's something he didn't take to naturally. But his ball playing was he weakest (compared to quality halves) was his weakest area for me. He doesn't bit...

Re: Too much depth?

I think in Papa's case, (and Tapine to a lesser extent) he is targeted n getting shut down by smart teams, and if I was the opposition coach I'd do the same. Any coach with half a brain can see how poor our back 5 bring the ball back, do kick to the corner, hold croker up n lose those few metres we ...

Re: Coaching issues

Let's be honest guys, since Ricky took over the attack, we have never had good shape in the backs, the forwards run 1 out, and we have still succeeded due to individual brilliance. But our guys are older now, and the lack of coaching is there for all to see (in my opinion of course, but that hasn't ...

This could be the game where our smaller/weaker outside backs get exposed with the lack of metres out of our end.
