Re: Jack Wighton confirms switch to five eighth

Not remotely concerned about Jack. The foundations are there. Was always going to take probably half a season for him to consistently nail 5/8 ,he'll throw in the odd shocker and as Woodge pointed out, he still did some good things. It's a work in progress but he'll get there.

Re: 2019 Rd 3 V Knights: Game Day

Well we're 2/3 and I don't believe we're anywhere near our best yet. Thought we were far better than the 7 point margin indicated, that scoreline flattered them . Defense does appear to have improved markedly, though I thought the knights were quite poor and through little at us. CNK and Bateman out...

Re: 2019 Rd 3 V Knights: Game Day

I disagree with most of the comments here. That was a clunky win and we should have buried them but it wasn't that bad and again, the defence was improved on 2018 so we're improving as a whole. We're not polished and we're scrapping but at least we are doing that and i'm happy with the commitment. ...

I don't think Sezer was dropped as such, I do think he could've played though. If that makes sense. There is an injury there, he's probably about 80%. It's an injury he could've played with though.

Re: Aidan Sezer

Sezer didn't do anything tonight he hasn't done the last 3 years with us. I don't bat an eyelid anymore. I expect him to be ordinary. He's just a very average barely 1st grade standard half. Hard to be too critical. He's trying. Just playing to his ability

The standard recovery time frame for a shoulder reco is 4-6 months. Rapa is back in just over 4. Not sure why people are stunned he's back. He's been on insta absolutely hammering them on the golf course, you can't do that if your shoulder's rooted.

I don't really rate the Warriors spine now that they have lost Johnson.

1. RTS
6. Green
7. Kerigan
9. Luke

RTS is easily their best player and green is solid, but Kerigan is an unknown youngster like Brown at the Eels and Luke is another year older.
