thats what i initially thought
playing a penrith sort of tactic both robbie and iosefa as two pronged attack making heaps of play making options
so long as farah plays the 80, taking him off will be the end of the game

I am happy to have egg on my face if we win but I dont see the logic in naming iosefa on the bench.
I thought Ava had a good solid game last week and with 2 young bookends starting having Ava on the bench would be the right thing to do.
Potter has been bringing on the last forward replacement near the end of the game with both Pettyborne and BMM getting limited game time over the past couple of weeks. I just dont get it.
You could of had Ava and Bell replace the young props and then give Fulton and Anasta a rest with BMM and Eddy.
IMO iosefa does not offer us much off the bench unless Robbie is injured.

He is the worst player we have at the Tigers!!! He gives away more Penalties then any other player... I would rather play with 16...

I think he may have been named with the plans of a dry match and attacking tiring forwards out of dummy half. I definately think big Ava would have been a better option.

It was almost like Potter was saying to Robbie I am the boss not you. Iosefa is a loose cannon guaranteed to give away 2 or 3 penalties a game.

BUt isn't Joel Luani starting hooker for NSW cup side in front of Iosefa???

So why not give Luani a crack, he can play backrow also!

I want to see Suaso Sue given a chance in FG also.

did u not see what Iosefa did last week in state cup ?
kicking 40/20s
try assists
Repeat sets
did it all
potter is rewarding players who play well something a lot of us were calling for for the past 4-5 years from sheens

I watched the state cup last week and thought the Wests Tigers looked better when Luani was at hooker. I said last year that Iosefa is a park footballer and that Politoni was a better player. EWhen robbie is out with SOO I would rather even Fulton at hooker over Iosefa. Iosefa is not good enough for the NRL in defence and gives away far too many penalties. I can't believe we didn't ship him off to the Warriors.

Luani played much better as a hooker in State Cup last week.

Watch last years footage and count how many games he cost BRET with his terrible defence and how many penalties he conceded.

Bringing his to the club in front of Politini was a mistake, playing him in the NRL is a mortal sin

that move by potter cost me a lot of money
where is the reasoning?!
taking arguably the best player in the nrl this season off for 16 minutes in the critical part of the game?
after all the attack we did all from robbies forced drop outs and he benches him which was exactly when we lost possession and the game

Potter tried something, it failed. Coaches make poor decisions from time to time.

Hopefully this is where he differs from Sheens in that he won't try it again.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

Cuando llegue el día, y estoy parado a las puertas del cielo, será Dios pidiendo mi perdón...
