Young Siro might as well been one of the trainers last night... He did nothing, other than 14 tackles, nothing?!

Sironen got barely any ball - I don't get why either...

Iosefa is making me eat Humble (Tom? LOL) Pie.

Humble seems to have regressed.

Farah's creative kicking game was missed - Marshall looked like Luke Walsh out there tonight - BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB.

Beau Ryan at Fullback Defensively is great, but we miss Moltzens Zip and Speed.

Inu killed us again. Suprisingly Big Frank and Perrett didn't.

We fielded an extremely second string team and almost toppled the team in 2nd place - methinks the next time we meet the dogs it will be a different story - we'll have Moltzen, Farah, Ellis, and Utai back.

Lote's injury may give Koroibete a chance to have a game - particularly against Penrith - although I predict we will see Ryan to the wing, Utai to return to the other wing, and moltzen to fullback.

Lawrence is looking better, as is Ayshford.

BMM missed so many tackles - and most of them looked like lazy efforts

I don't think you can blame Sirro for that Watto , he was many times standing at first reciever and they would invariably play the open side

If anyone is to blame for Sironens lack of involvement it is Marshall C'mon mate you know that better than most of us being a former half

Did Benji get tackled with the ball once?

Did Sironen touch it 5 times in attack?

Is this Benji's worst year defensively ever?

Will BMM start in the centres next week?

Will Joel Reddy figure out defensive strategy?

Will Matt Bell get more minutes in place of Rhino?

Will a new winger be blooded this late in the season?

I like it better when the players have beards.

Did the Dogs once get the ball into our 20 WITHOUT scoring?

I could go on...

Happy, I get what your saying but I don't necessary agree with you on that one... While I could see the ball was fed to Benji all night, young Siro didn't look to be calling/demanding the dummy-half give him the ball at all. He didn't appear to be rallying troops around him and to not even get 1 kick, well we saw what happened a few times out there?!

He also appeared to be short of pace and was very wide on many occasions?

I'm not meaning to criticise the young fella, but considering how things unfolded out there last night, the questions should be asked. He IS playing in the NRL ahead of another good kid!!!

Yeah both Benji and Sirro seemed to be caught out defending in the centres all night

3 of their tries were when these two were defending in the centres

I don't know if anyone taped the game but at one stage we had a 4 on 3 in the first half with Sirro at first reciever and Iosefa didn't even look and Sirro just throws his head back in digust Probably some of the blame lays at our 9's feet as well

But Benji is the 7 Watto and he should of pulled Curtis aside and told him to play same side of the ruck and just stacked it with runners

That is when he ball plays best

My other point is Benji can't play 7 without Farah , simple as that

Very good point Happy.

Ioseffa plays to Benji, that is it. At least Humble tried to play both sides from hooker.

Sirro was terrible. I don't get why he gets a free ride. He offered nothing in attack and his defense cost us a couple of tries.

I get you have to give the kid time but on that effort he is a liability. Why not play him off the bench.

First game back from knee surgery. That is why he gets a slide from me
