Re: Joel Monaghan

I think his confidence has been really low all year and its affected his game.

Re: Broncos to tank it?

Surely they wouldn't dream of it??? They have regained some form after we towelled them last time and winning form is good form going into the finals. I'm sure their players want to make amends for 56 - 0.

But an option between Storm and Titans :hmmm

Re: Half back - Josh McCrone

IMO fans will give votes to terry even when he has an average game. 1- he gets a heap of touches 2- fans like him and know what he is capable regardless of form. Yes but he did have a blinder against the Titans. He had a decent game against Melbourne without starring. Either way he certainly didn't...

Re: If the cap fits, Raiders want it on Logan

The fact is Flanagan has had every opportunity to claim a first grade spot. Buttriss has only been solid since the start of the year and if Flanagan was playing the house down at Souths Logan he would have forced the change. The bottom line is he's been inconsistent in Qld Cup and not done anything...

Re: Why are we trying to turn Thurling into a prop?

In the games Thurling has played recently his ball handling has been pretty poor. So maybe Dave wants him to get those mistakes out of his game by stopping him from being a ball player for the time being.
