Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Game Day

I thought Collins was pretty ordinary Granted he didnt make any errors but he came on at a time where we needed fresh legs to push us forward and get some control back and he just got turtled too easily and the ensuing slow play the balls compounded their dominance He was busy and solid defensively...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Fans' Choice Player of the Year

3 CNK
2 Bateman
1 Leilua

Thought Cotric had one of his better games with some tough carries. Sutton unlucky to not grab 1.

Really happy with Williams defense this game. Put on some solid hits and held the shape.
That was a terrible decision by Wighton for their first try. Couldn't get anymore rocks and diamonds if he tried.

It's only valid if you think there's no plus to the NRL gaining those sponsorship dollars. What's the plus for the NRL if JDB plays? Zero.
Sure the money could come from cleaner sources but the NRL obviously thinks the money is worth the cons.

Good episode guys.
Disagree about the broncs. The legends have been tearing strips for weeks and nothing has come of it. With Lodge and TPJ also out we should definitely be winning this. If we don't win it's because of our own form rather than theirs.

Nice work Matt. Fifita isn't being used as an 80min player as he doesn't have 1st grade fitness yet. They should still be trying to get more out of him though.
Seibold's bench use is generally pretty poor.

The Broncos have struggled against teams that have defended well and gone through the middle. We should be winning this game in a similar way to how we've won the last few. In behind the ruck, defend your mistakes. Don't panic. More specifically stay active in defense on their 5th tackle if your kic...

Whether you want Williams or Sezer as your main man I wouldn't be releasing the other unless I absolutely had to. Williams / Wighton, Sezer / Wighton is way better than Hingano / Wighton. That depth is great for plenty of reasons.

Re: Josh Hodgson

The biggest issue with the way Hodgson is playing is what do you do as one of his runners? Close to the line we've got 2 runners that need to time what is going on. If you're going to put in your 3rd shimmy jink you then need to hit the correct option and when he does he's not hitting often enough (...

Re: New recruits

No mistakes and great positioning are huge positives too. The rest of the stuff can come later. You wouldn't believe he can improve his involvement based on his stats but it's going to happen as he gets more game time back there. He hasn't peaked yet.

Re: Williams or Sezer

Because once Williams breaks that shape it doesn't really matter. He goes off by himself and creates problems for everyone around him by doing it. If he maintains that shape he might even be there to get in the way.
Austin got crucified for it last year. Why shouldn't Williams?

This is a ridiculous discussion. While Sezer and Williams are both fit, ONE of them is going to be on the extended bench for the rest of the season, as they're both in our Top 21.
