Cotric would’ve stopped that.

Ricky needs to be hooked, now.

I’ve been side on to a few clearly forward passes from the Sharks and then we get called for one that went backwards but floated forward with the wind.

Abbey should never had started at fullback.
Why move Cotric after last weeks win?

I was never expecting for a minute to compete in this game. But seeing what I called on **** Monday happen and finish it by half time really does suggest Stuart has to go. If he can’t spot something a 30 year old nobody can it’s just not good enough.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

We need to shift Sia into the middle now and need to get Rapana and Cotric involves running outside inside plays. It’s our only chance.

The Sharks forward pack will tirer

Totally agree.

Oldfield getting stood up by Holmes while the significantly more talented Cotric watches from outside him, just sums up the Sticky era

He is running around like a teenager at times. To over eager and in defence is often caught in the line and not behind managing it. Just terrible

A shambles of a half.

Cotric needs to be moved to fullback for the second half.

Rapana to fullback, swap Cotric and Oldfield. Whitehead to centre and Murchie on.

We still get flogged but at least it's interesting.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

On the future, I’m really concerned about being able to hang on to Cotric long term. If he remains on the wing while this is happening and Raiders don’t look close to being competitive Brisbane or the roosters will come knocking soon and take him no matter how long his contract with the Raiders is

I would literally put Leipana in the halves. They're the only ones with any creativity and oomph. Would they be NRL quality halves? No. Would they be better then the current numpties? Probably

Yep. THis isnt surprising. It was entirely predictable and many spoke about it.

We are getting ripped by the refs but it doesn't excuse how crappily we are playing. We fumbled the ball on the first tackle.

It isnt the refs who are carving up our right edge as an aside. They are just rolling down the field making like 80m a set

The refs have given them all the 50/50 calls but we've been very poor defending our errors. Mentally we can't transition from attack to defence. We are constantly conceding long range tries when we should be relatively fresh.

That's the coaching though. They have earned the ball and metres, through intelligent use of the full width of the field. We just cart it up the guts and hope for the best, no method to the madness at all. Just hope for some individual brilliance

Williams has had ample opportunities to not drop uncontestable, soft kicks down Valentine Holmes’ throat.

Bizarre play given the swirling wind.
