Re: Matulino

No doubting those two plays were costly*, though he's been one of our best otherwise throughout the first part of the season. Grant is very poor defensively - no linespeed, no lateral movement. Good with ball in hand today. * Matulino should never have got the ball in that situation, gotta give half...

Re: Our Defense Is Not as Good As It Was

Some poor reads today, but we were our own worst enemy in terms of gifting them opportunities.
Additionally, we're missing our three best ruck defenders in Twal, Packer and ET - Parra took advantage of the space behind the ruck today.

Re: This is Just the Beginning

We’ve played the 2017 top four over five weeks, and been a chance to win all of them. We beat the Storm twice, neither of them in Sydney. Today we won after a 5 day turnaround (Melbourne had an 8 day turnaround), and did so whilst being off our best, as Benji and Lawrence said post match. Our first ...

Re: Nothing’s changed still a heart attack

We miss ET big time ... Last 20 was very ordinary though We didn't play smart with the ball , ET wouldn't help too much His defensive workrate around the ruck is sorely missed - they got a bit of momentum around there in the second half. I think our guys were just a little flat in the second half. ...

Re: Brutal Reality - We lack talent

I think we have a talented forward pack - maybe a bit thin on the edges, but plenty of good middle fwds. Brooks is a concern, as is the uncertainty at FB. I think we're a back or two short - hopefully we can get another body in. We're not going to win the comp this year, but there's enough in the sq...

Re: Seen enough

We were well down on intensity compared to the Sharks - not a surprise that they dominated us in the first half. Mentality was the issue more than anything. Cleary will have the 17 fired up properly for rd 1, so I'm not too concerned about that. Brooks is a real worry with his kicking game (or lack...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I would be sniffing around Souths. They appear to have an abundance of outside backs: Burns, Hunt, Arthars, Kennar, Jennings, Talakai & Fuimaono. Surely they will not all play 1st grade (Souths actually have 37 players listed as NRL players on their website). Otherwise I would look at the cowboys w...

Re: Paul Vautin axed from The Footy Show

The worst thing to ever happen to Channel Nine was losing Yvonne Sampson. She had everything they needed in a female presenter and they let her walk. Molan is literally a token inclusion. Fox got it right with all the knowledgeable women on their panels. Yep - Sampson is the best presenter on eithe...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Both Penrith and Manly forums are pretty confident Moylan Has signed and Green is off to the Warriors. That seems a pretty silly move for Manly IMO. Their fwds are their (relative) weakness, particularly the edges. Green has been a great fit for them too - suits both DCE and Tommy T. Still, it mean...
