Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews

If Hodgo plays, Stuart is almost certainly carrying Havili on the bench. I hope some of you guys realise it is going to be high 20's and humid in Darwin when we play. Depth in the forwards is essential - especially a bloke than can cover hooker and the back row. It would be nuts to put an outside ba...

Re: Jarrod Croker

In all honesty, the NRL centre who would give Croker the most grief is BJ Leilua. Ricky Stuart sorted that problem out a while ago.

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

My biggest concern with attacking inside the opposition 20, is the forward pack who don't understand that they need to run angled lines instead of constantly running those ineffective straight lines, square on with defenders. We wouldn't be complaining about Hodgson inside the opposition 20 if the ...

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

Unlike the Storm, there are a number of players in our team who don't seem to be particularly clear on their roles. Stuart has to keep things simple for the likes of Sezer and Wighton and ensure Hodgson doesn't overplay his hand in the attacking 20. If we can sort those kinds of issues out this team...

Re: Current dummy half

Many of which we started OK and then got run down in the second half.

Not sure I'd start arguably our most important player on the bench, but statistically the idea has merit. He could destroy many teams coming on fresh after 20.
