One thing I'd like to know is why Gordon took the conversion of Ricky's try about a foot from the sideline when it was scored about 5 metres in. Very strange.
Donated in excess of $750 to the Sutherland shire over the weekend, then bang get home let the boss go to pokies while I watch the replay, she wins 1k
Win win just that 80mins late Sunday
I didn't think Barba was horrible last night. Yes his first two kicks were shockers. His passing game was solid. He didn't miss a tackle, so it appears that he won't be the defensive liability that Carney was. His running game was nowhere to be seen, but it will come. He was sniffing around Gallen and Fifita a lot. I don't know why there is so much hate for Gordon. I thought he was one of our best. I liked seeing him lay on a cut out pass from chiming in a fullback. He has been working on his attack, which you need to have as a modern day fullback. Too me, the game seemed more about poor coaching than poor play. Clearly having Mitch Brown instead of Holmes is a mistake and the first step toward driving one of our best young talents out of the club. Jack Bird needs to be in centres. I think probably for Luetele (he didn't play bad, but I just don't think he is first grade material. You can't hold onto beating SBW for the rest of your career). I thought Matt Prior was solid with limited game time (He didn't drop the ball.Yay!). Tupou and H were solid off the bench. Rotation was poor. Again coach. It seemed like there was confusion about the game plan. After half time, the hard straight running was very effective. A. Fafita needs to move back to the bench until he tightens up his discipline. Gallen to front row with Prior, two Fifita's as prop rotations to provide huge impact against tiring defence. It seems like Flannagan is spoilt for backrowers. Graham or Lewis are our best nr 13s. Gallen has never been a lock. It baffles me why he even wears nr 13. He plays like a prop, he looks like a prop. When he tries to be a play maker, it looks ugly and usually the play breaks down. Again this is the coach. Tell him he is a prop. He is to run hard and look for an offload. Simple job. Every team knows that Gallen is probably going to take two hit ups in a set. That needs to stop. It is too predictable and defences can line up on him. Anyway, we will see what next week brings.
Not sure what has been said in this thread before as I haven't got time to read it , probably a lot of BS , probably a lot of common sense and some comments somewhat in between - all good.
Anyway my brief thoughts
Adam Dykes should be hauled before the coach and asked to explain , our kicking game was atrocious ,we successfully always found them on the full and gave them a 30 metre head start where as they found the grass each time . Memo to Dykes - go back and check Noddy's kicking game - absolutely first class no matter what you thought of the rest of his game , kick long , find the grass and chase hard.
Flanagan , if we dont improve our D line - forget it mate , we have to learn to move up in a line instead of standing and waiting , get some F'n line speed for gawds sake .
Changes - Holmes in for Brown - Bird in for Arona - we need people on the bench who can add value , Brown and Arona are solid but they wont create or set the game on fire and add nothing.
David Fifita - looks a prospect
Andrew Fifita - just play the game mate - stop looking for penalties and for F's sake hold the pill please
Barba - prepared to give him another chance or two before we criticise - kids talented just has to show it .
Interesting and somewhat crucial game coming up Friday night
Just watched in detail
20-24 behind 68th minute last tackle we have raiders short on left, after beale had a
Nice skoot down the tight, arona has the ball wade next to him with Andrew fifs standing outside him, so arona kicks it to waqa on the full... That hurt us more than mitchs fumble...
Two mistakes by two people who should only be depth
