Have to agree with your assessment of Caine in that other thread Demps.

Interesting to sit near Shane Flannagan on the Eastern side of the ground, he had some black and white on. Kyle was looking over towards his dad during stops in play and getting feedback from Shane with handsignals such as to speed up play or what type of kick to go for

The head back/hand to the mouth gesture was "get some Peppies down your gullet". Flanno is a seedy dog. Got off easy from the drug cheating that is for sure.

Another really disappointing loss from a team who certainly know how to blow a good lead. We never seem to have players who know how to close out games. The most disappointing aspect was the absence of players who showed they can step up to the NRL. The only player who showed a readiness to step up was Garner. I really liked the signing of McQueen when it happened but he looks finished I'm afraid. Kev was busy but unproductive. Felise and Sue make too many errors. Gamble is not even close to being ready for first grade and Godinet shouldn't even be picked in ISP. A few of the others look like reasonable ISP players but not first graders. More depth needed please.
Gamble is shocking hey.
People calling for him to get a crack in first grade and he can't even make a tackle in cup games
#overrated
i missed the game but watched most of the year, still think Gamble can be ok, just looked a lot better when DW & Mahe were there

This team is just rocks and diamonds. Gamble was the team's man of the match but just isn't a dominant playmaker to be driving the team around the field all day. He's the perfect foil though. 2 try assists and an extra 2 line break assists, and some great goal kicking. Defence was better than previous weeks but still an area to work on.

Robson always comes on and does a great job no matter where he plays. A lot of Mitch Aubusson about him, perfect utility material.

Garner goes strong especially close to the opposition line, doesn't make huge yardage with his hit ups generally though. That's what he needs to work on. Very solid otherwise. He is theoretically competing with Lawrence for the left back rower spot which wouldn't help his chances of first grade. MCK also plays there.

This team lacks a genuine halfback, and quality in the outside backs. When you've got players like Price and Tali out there you're going to struggle as they're simply not up to this level.

In general a lack of leadership, fitness and consistency hurts this side. There is no vocal presence on this team. The team on the ropes every second week and no-one steps up. Having two 5/8s and a non ball playing fullback and hooker makes this team very one dimensional in attack.

McQueen is useless and really needs to be shipped off to the UK as i don't see him playing NRL again. He's English too which should help.

We should have won this game by 40

Very accurate imo.

Except I don't think Gamble has it to made grade.

And JJ felise ain't anything special.
Started strong but lost some key players.
Think the season ahead you'll see some more wins and just as many losses

Thanks for the review. Is it time to bring in Dylan Smith?? We definitely need a good organising half back.

Yep even if it’s a couple of games for his development

It would depend if Hodgo think the boy is physically ready to play against men yet. No point him playing if he's going to get snapped in half. The pics i've seen of him he looks pretty lean. But if he handles NYC fine give him a shot as he could offer a lot more than Heleta does.

Heleta's a good club man and tries his best, i just can't see him stepping up to NRL. Maybe the UK

I was at the game. 10 minutes in my mate said we will win by 50. I told him this side turns it up and will scrape home or lose.

The forwards lost all momentum when Sue and Felise went off and those 2 should have gone to the showers as they did not make a difference when they came back on.

Kev killed it early, but then swapped sides and was never seen again. He should have been moved to fullback.

McQueen did nothing and blokes like Price, Godinet and Tali are not up to reserve grade standard.

Only players of a decent standard were Garner, McIllwrick, Gamble and Kev

Who should the tigers be looking at?? Seeing how some players are not ISP standard.

Todd Carney would of been perfect but we fell asleep at the wheel in regards to making enquiries about him and we missed the boat. He would of made a massive difference at ISP level.

Not a chance we'd have made enquiries for a trouble maker like him!

Realistically another Drinkwater, Sam Williams type who can do a good job at half at ISP level. That and some young, pacy outside backs and a hard running backrower. With the potential for first team action we must be a decent proposition for young players looking for a chance!
