The one thing that upsets me the most about a loss like todays is what appears to be the lack of heart and passion in the performance . Of course I always want my team to win but when we don't I can live with it if they went down scrapping and showing that heart and passion .

I hope that in the coming weeks that we can find some .

Its a gun top 30 but the side isnt selected to strength at all. Moylan has to go. Talakai has to be in the backrow at least. Can anyone seriously defend not making these changes?

You cant say it isnt

We were top 4 going into today and our NSW Cup team is easily the best in the comp

We just dont pick the right players
As in our Supercoach doesnt have the guts to do it....Agree..
Dont think ive seen a side thats meant to be good capitulate so easy so often...
Craig......makes some changes

Back around the time we signed Todd Carney I was just happy to have a player that could potentially score a length of the field try.

I'm now returning to this style of hope and optimism again.

Id like to see something like the following rolled out next week

Kennedy
Katoa
Ramien
Tracey
Mulitalo
Trindell
Hynes

BHU
Brailey
Finucane
Talakai
Nikora
McInnes

Hazelton
Colquhoun
Rudolf
Aitkinson

Send Kafusi, Moylan and Wade to reserve grade for a week.
Only a few small changes, but enough to put players on notice and hand opportunities to those who have deserved a chance

Yeah I’d do something similar. I really don’t want to move Talakai out of the centres but with Teig going down I’d reluctantly do it.

Unfortunately Fitz is not about to send MM and WG to reserve grade. If they are dropped they’ll just be rested.

I honestly think it’ll be a carbon copy with Wade in for Tieg. Finucane is back from suspension too (so much for the carbon copy!) so he’ll be in at someone else’s expense.

Finucane and BHU in, Teig and Colquhoun out is what we'll if the coach keeps to the pattern

Wade is the best option on the left. We just have no spare edge players, and swapping Sifa to a new position and a new side could be disastrous. Wade isnt why we lost tonight. Moylan had a big part in it though. If Trindall comes in for MM, which he should, then Wade should play that side with Trindall. That could actually work pretty well.

The radical plan would be Tracey, Trindall, Wade on that side and Sifa covers Teig. Maybe ramien next to him could be good for Sifa.

Idiot, I totally did. I guess the good news is that Sifa could play edge, tracey centre, and no need for wade.
