I do agree, but I do think the roosters have had some very good years and games with some crap completion rates when they won their premiership. It definitely makes life harder than it needs to be.
The Roosters don’t play eyes up footy all the time therefore they know when it’s time to knuckle down and play tactically and they do just that. Us ? Our game managers aren’t capable of that and it needs to get fixed

roosters had the best game managing 9 not named cam smith on their books as well

brailey is too eratic and moylan is a fullback that is now a 6 because of his body

either brailey needs to completely switch his style, which would be nice because he is ****, or we live with what we have

Brailey seems to be extremely nonchalant off the field, I think that translates to how he plays.

He’s not red lining and it does my head in.. he just chills and is happy to get paid. we used to have so many players that would red line and now we have very few

Hynes, Ronnie at times, McInnes, Toby, Fifita.. that’s it

We can speculate all we want but in reality I dont think we’re going to see much else in terms of recruitment from this club. It’ll probably just be Kaufusi and maybe a few reserve graders for depth. Just feels like the club is focusing much more on retention and promoting from within and it seems Fitz is generally happy with who he has, including the forward pack.

I’m not Chad, I don’t have the hot line to Fitz’s inbox 😂😂😂. But that’s the impression I’m getting.

Only thanks to shenanigans Flanagan that he'd believe the club had the coaching using a hotmail account

This whole idea of red lining is a bit dumb. The reason Brailey doesn't look like he is red lining is because he is the fittest at the club. He won't look like he is sucking in the hard ones due to his fitness levels. There is a reason he made 60 tackles in the cowboys game. That is no small feat.

If you look at the Panthers there is not a lot of "red lining" they all are primed for their job.

Now a hard thing for young players is maintaining fitness for a full season. Brailey is doing amazing in this area and with further coaching and experience will develop even further. He will have the ability to do even more due to him appearing "calm" and having such good fitness. When people are sucking in the big ones he will eventually take control of a game and should be able to add some kicking and more running at tired forwards.
