Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

This is men vs boys. A big reason the broncos are floundering is their middle has an average age of 12. 20 - Payne Hass 23 - Joe Ofahengaue 19 - David Fifita 19 - Thomas Flegler 21 - Patrick Carrigan 21 - Jaydn Su'A Staggs is 20 and Shibasaki is 21.

I don’t think manly are renewing Dylan Walker, so there would be money. Problem is, they have a fullback and a five eighth.

If we are dropping horsburgh for Tapine, then it tends to look like we'll play Tapine in the middle. Happy with that. Our forwards have done their job, Bateman doing well on the edge. Bring Tapine off the bench into the middle. Ease him back. Get great impact off the bench. Let him tell us how much...

Honestly, the Cowboys look to me like a team that needs a change of coach.

Re: 2019 Rd 4 V Cowboys: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I think having Bateman as a wingman is a requirement of Sammy as 7. I just dont have the confidence in Tarps being a bodyguard to the same extenent, but would be happy with Tarps in the 13 or prop rotation.

That players walk through the members / VIP area as they enter the Bankwest Stadium is pretty cool. Nice touch....unless you’re going back on for the second half down by 40.

Re: Jack Wighton confirms switch to five eighth

It took Jack 2 years to be comfortable at fullback, he isn’t going to be an instant sensation at 6. He has an immense amount of talent, but seems to overthink things and struggle with self belief. How many times have we seen Jack turn one error into 2 or 3? You could see in the first half last night...
