I don't get when people say "is dropping a player going to fix anything".

Well it's a start to finding a solution. If a player/s are not performing because of attitude or lack of skill, then you replace them.

Whether or not you have the replacement is another problem in itself.

But 100% there needs to be personnel change in the team.

I think there can be benefits to a players game if they are dropped.

Like always...once a bit of pressure comes on we completely collapse. Talakai is busy watching Moylan in D...that and he cant turn...
Keep saying it but our attack is so obvious and good sides keep their width
Hynes little kicks put **** all pressure on fullbacks and wingers
We dont adapt and we have **** all resilience...
Toby is fat and Wade needs to retire now

Media fabricated apparenlty

I hope the media keep f**king drilling it into the coach so he realises just how bad he’s been going
Manly,Penrith and Souths coming up, Fitz will have no where to hide.

Has Ronnie actually even trained at centre since preseason last year?
I don’t expect you to actually know the answer but he may not have. Not sure we can just yeet him in there because SS looks decent. Might have to be Iro
I'd be willing to give him another crack at centre, if it's the choice between that or Iro.
At least Ronnie would get more involved, which I think would be a good thing

Even if we beat Manly, they'll be outside the eight so it won't count. Our best bet will be when no one will expect us to win, (hopefully against Penrith and Souths). Hopefully we'll lure them into a false sense of security.

Our halves are the main difference.

But Jesus - our left side is insanely bad. For me, I thought Talakai was our main defensive **** up of the day. First three tries against us were all him.

Moylan not much better but Talakai - what in the absolute **** was that today?

He is a ****ing cannonball shaped human that needs to propel himself in the same way Katoa, Cam, Finucane does. Bigger run up. Did he even have a tackle bust today?? I dont remember one.
The warriors forwards made sure he didn't go anywhere. And that seemed to use up a lot of his juice earlier on

I honestly believe we are missing a real in the trenches leader , Finucane just doesn't seem to be what i thought he would be . I see us behind the posts after conceding and i don't see anybody laying down the law .

Says plenty when Katoa is bending the line better than any forward . Even the attack looks clunky , again , has been for weeks .
Yes & no. Watching at the ground,a lot of the Sharks sweeps looked well executed. The warriors had done their homework & had the answers to what looked like slick moves on the edge & out wide. The 2 x saves in the corners were particularly good.

I get you , i absolutely love my Sharks and i find it so frustrating , not as much as the wife , she's forever telling me to stop yelling and swearing because they can't hear me . But it's all about passion , if you don't have it go sail boats on a lake somewhere .

I was talking more about his returns , some of the forwards could have taken a lesson on how hard to run back .

How many of these losses until the coach makes some changes? We can't keep running out the same team and expect something different. This mob have had their chances under the current set up. It's not working. Need to make changes.

Players will be relieved they don't have to talk to the media after that effort.
