Re: Joey Leilua

We can’t carry BJ and Tapine and is rather keep Tapine. I’d shop both of them at the end of the season. We have a very strong team without them, and I’m just not sure you can win a grand final carrying this level of ill-discipline. You need to win three games in a row of tough niggly finals footbal...

2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Bailey is currently our best and most consistent winger. I can't fathom how he is sitting on the bench given Cotric's current form and BJ's unpredictability with anger management. Everyone talks about Beej being a game breaker...the guy has cost us more games than he has won for us over the past tw...

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

As much as BJ was frustrating today I still can’t not pick him next week. Can break a game open at anytime and is the only player outside of Wighton maybe who can offer this.

I tell you one thing, we just have no attacking options on the right side with Sezer. Can’t wait to get Williams there for next year.

2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Well that game hasn’t dented my confidence in the team going deep into the finals.

Unfortunately the way it was referred just doesn’t suit our style of play and I can’t see it being referred that way come September.

So if we are 8 rounds into 2020 and it’s looking a lot like 2017 again what then?

There is absolutely no logical or commercial reason to extend Stuart right now. Wait until the middle of next year...

I really hope ricky has a word to the team anout how we work the ball out of our corners. Croker trying to take a hitup out of danger is a real waste of a tackle although he should be commended for his toughness. We need to be going 2 - 3 passes wide straight away and at least open up both sides of...

I don't mind the path Sticky is taking with the bench here but hypothetically, if Hodgo needs replacing who goes to hooker? Bateman? Sezer with Whitehead going to halves?
I suspect Sezer with Whitehead into the halves.
I think he will play Simonnson there

It will be good for Havilli to get some proper minutes in Mounties in case he is needed as starting backup in later weeks.

It’s not like he is defending different players to any other left centre in the comp. He just comes up with more misses than other left centres. I think that remains a genuine concern.
