I seriously do not know where we go from here. That’s basically twice in a row we’ve been spooked by two top sides.
You can’t drop everyone of course but if you do drop players is that going to affect the balance of the team? And the morale.?

My biggest worry is that normally when teams perform like that, they are not playing for the coach. I’d be horribly disappointed if this was the case. Surely Fitz can’t have lost the dressing room already?

IMO, players who are past it are:

  • Moylan
  • Graham
  • Finucane
  • Ramien
Team sheet Tuesday will be very interesting, if Fitz runs out the same team, let’s hope at least he’s done some soul searching and pointed out to a few players that their efforts have been well elbow par.

If he runs out the same team I give up on him permanently

We all know he's gonna just copy and paste.

Stonestreet did his ankle last week, he was named for this week but didn't play today.

Still I would like to see him get a run this year, I'd probably give him a chance ahead of Katoa though, rather than shift Ronaldo.

I don’t know what you do for a crust mate but having a bad day playing a game is far from life and death scenarios.

I get that it might be different (or is different) to what it is you do and mistakes might cost lives but I think your anger is getting the better of you and probably doesn’t really reflect who you are.

Maybe take the night off away from this place and enjoy some quality time with family or friends (not attacking you, just worried about your current state of mind).

Youre a wanker mate

Punisher is just pissed off like we all are, so we don’t need to add fuel to the fire.

@The Punisher
Just take a look at my post above and hopefully you can see your way to a bit of a break from this place tonight and start fresh again tomorrow.

Its not really difficult to diagnose....We have no speed in D...we have limited attack our kicking game is bottom 4 yet we seem shocked when we get belted...Granted i didn't see that flogging but we really cant be shocked....but luckily we have signed them all up again...

It’s not that it’s just that we don’t respect the ball at all. We haven’t all year.

This has been the first game where the possession has actually been against us while not respecting the ball and we got what we deserved, and really it’s been a long time coming.

What’s ultimately concerning is the side seemingly has no backbone this year. Discipline and handling has been a staple of the Sharks since John Morris took over (the players are largely the same too, what a coincidence…). The difference between this year to last year particularly is severe lack of communication defensively to defend these errors, and the lack of leadership and composure when we fall behind.
