Re: Williams or Sezer?

They all spiral it. Its a hit and hope. Its not a “good play” No- many backspin for accuracy to target a smaller area closer to the goal line; you spiral when your own kick position (too far out) or game station- praying for that drop so try a different style of kick- require a different technique....

Re: Croker for Blues right centre?

Fittler won't pick a Raider. You reckon? I can feel the hate coming out of Brandy's every pore but I never picked up a big anti-Raider side from Freddy. He struck me as more pragmatic. If we'd beat Rooters & Souffs I have no doubt there'd be a Raider in his squad. Mind you by losing the two big gam...

Re: 2019 Rd 11 V Cowboys: Teams and Previews

It would have been nice to win the last 2 games but this is a must win. If we play with the same intensity as the last 2 weeks there’s no reason we don’t win. No excuses at home next Saturday. Yup, spot on. Gotta go out there and play like we did the last two weeks and we win comfortably. Saying th...

Re: Croker for Blues right centre?

I wouldn’t pick Croker - he isn’t near good enough to play SOO. He seems a nice fella and all but I truly don’t rate him much as a footballer . To be fair I acknowledge he’s having a good season but he’s my biggest worry come finals time - Konrad Hurrell has showed he can’t stop a hard running big ...

Is the general consensus that Croker was a loose carry? I didn't watch a replay.

Yeah, kick errors is obviously a stupid stat if Williams has none! He's DEFINITELY given away a few 7-tackle sets this season, including a critical one against Souths that went a long way towards them winning the game.
