The MRC are so out of touch, they will probably simply fine him if at all…

Gold Coast hard man Jarrod Wallace in hot water after ugly high shot in Titans' loss to Sharks​

Gold Coast enforcer Jarrod Wallace could be poised for a stint on the sideline after lashing out with an ugly high shot as the Titans fell to the Sharks on Saturday.

In a move perhaps the result of frustration as the Titans crashed to a fifth defeat in succession, Wallace thumped Cameron McInnes with a swinging right arm after the Sharks lock was knocked to the ground in a tackle late in the game.

Wallace avoided being reported but the match review committee is still likely to punish the Dolphins-bound forward, either through a fine or suspension.

Jarrod Wallace could be set for a stint out of the game after performing an ugly high shot in the Titans' loss to the Sharks. (Fox League)
The poor discipline added to the Titans' woes as they slumped to an 18-10 loss in Coffs Harbour, meaning they'll remain anchored to the bottom of the ladder for at least another week.

One of the toughest men to have set foot on a rugby league field – legendary Balmain front-rower Steve Roach – slammed Wallace for showing physicality too late.

"No good doing that when the fight's nearly over," Roach said on the Fox League coverage.

"Should do it when it's on. Should try to be intimidating in the first five minutes of the game, not at the back end of it."

Yeh he was so dumb he actually challenged it! I would have loved for them to have sent him to the bin after reviewing.

There was no bin.

No sure if that’s our bad and home team is supposed to supply but you’d think the International stadium would have one already

Yeah we look rudderless in attack, it's almost like there's no plan.
I have a pure speculation theory about that.

I don't think Fitz cares about our attack this year. He never talks about it in the press conference. But he always talks about defense and consistency. I think he's focussed purely on creating a strong defensive with a low error rate. Only after he's done that will he turn his mind to attack. It'll probably take a full season and another off season for this team to reach the level he's after. This whole season is just a defense project. Attack is just "play whats in front of you and always look for points".

Hannay is in charge of our attack.

Just seen in the Sheds vid of us singing the team song.
If Fitz can somehow transfer the enthusiasm & intensity of the team song into on field we’ll be up there as hard to beat as much as the Storm & Panthers.

Our team singing is very impressive.

I'd be showing our forwards their metres compared to the back 5 personally.
Challenge the pride a bit.

To be fair, the forwards are normally running directly into brick walls most of the time, whereas the backs will have more open space opportunities where they are running kick returns which will help with their numbers.

Yep. Didn't drop a ball or give any dumb penalties away!

Nah they didn't mate, definitely went long

They went long on the dropout with about 4-5 mins to go and went short when there was about 45 seconds to go, it was intentional but went about 25m

Attack is just "play whats in front of you and always look for points".

If this were the actual case it would explain having a halves pairing of 2 heads up type players in Hynes & Mozza but it isn't supported by what we have seen especially early season where we could see a clear structure with our attack and it was working brilliantly

Most coaches talk about defense in press conferences cause he can pin that on his players attitude, mistakes, discipline and effort but criticizing the attack looks worse for the coach if it brings into question his gameplan, attacking structures, creativity, bench use/selections ect

Some teams like Barret coached bulldogs had no clue how to score points but the coach isn't gunna admit that and will divert the media towards completions, errors, missed tackles ect. Sometimes they might mention missed opportunities or not taking their chances - again this is player focused.

Defense makes sense as a building block of a team and you need it sorted to win the battles in the finals and against the best teams but you gotta know how to put points on too, it's harder to grind out a win these days under the current rule set and some defenses can be difficult to unlock and find a way through.

If defense were Fitz primary focus/project it isn't going that great lately but he has specialist coaches under him that work on attack and defense and they would be spending plenty of time at training on both aspects.

In terms of where we need to get to, the top 2-3 teams are as strong in defense as they are in attack

Well at least we picked up 4 points last two weeks playing like dirt. Years gone by we drop probably one maybe both games. Hope we have another gear to go to I worry this is as good as 2022 will get…

The one with 4 mins to go is what I was talking about mate, was in my post.
