After the first half against the eagles he was always going to be heavily marked for a few games, then Wade returned and stuffed him getting any good early ball.

That is a massive factor as well and one that everyone (bar Fitz it seems) knew would happen

Yeah, sometime earlier someone talked about having a plan B. We need that now. We need multiple games/plans so we can keep the others teams missing*. If I can think that I am sure Fitzy does too and more.

Maybe this is the growing pains, but not competing and losing hurts the most.

* Edit Note: I meant guessing.

I don’t like losing but I can’t cop not competing, f’n stop reading your own press.

This team or bunch of players are no where near the level of Panthers or Storm players who are the only ones that are entitled to read their own press cause they are that damn good & they get it done week after week, we sporadically play well & then appear to put the cue in the rack, Manly game as the prime example

I was like most of you; waiting for Talakai to get clean early ball to allow him to hit the line at speed; Raiders jammed him to nullify this - Will Kennedy was possible the missing “option in motion.” to take eyes off Talakai.

It may be we need Moylan / Nico & Kennedy on the park together - take one out & it turns into a &&^ show in attack - not sure.

Yeh we are a one trick pony ATM.

Even that fan spread we did near the end of the first half looked slow and like they were going through the motions.

I prefered Wade when he was out concussed
I'm giving Wade a lot of leeway giving what he had done for the club in terms of his fitness and contribution.

In saying that, I thought someone of his experience would have got our team to straighten up mid way through the second half.
