Watched yesterday's match with the view behind the goal line defence in the first half and it was easy to see we were being smashed up front and in the 2nd was not going to be better unless the coast forwards were going to fall over .
Line speed poor ,intent poor.Always on the back foot.
Our Forwards need to learn to run hard and straight and of course hold the ball
Brooks had no chance with those forwards in front on him
Backs excluding Naiqama and Mbye were poor as well.Even if they held onto the ball they have no thrust .
Aloiai last year was one our better forwards but this year is below average
Sue is poor
Lawrence 100/100 for effort but to small for back row
Eisenhuth needs a little stint in reserves
Packer must be injured because he is better than that
Taylor smashed by bigger bodies
More execuses for brooks.

Forwards were mixed back let in 3 soft tries on line then held out straight sets in the second half b4 c.v penalty goal.

Cannot figure forwards not getting more meters. Yes possession a tackle count has something yo do with it but more to it than that

We could go for Napa, Soliola or Mariner next year. Mariner averages 108 meters in 50 minutes, Soliola averages 87 meters in 40 minutes and Napa averages 85 meters in 30 minutes.

Then we can throw some cash at Tapine.

Doesn't matter who we get - we'll somehow turn them into marshmellows within half a season!

Get rid of:

Grant
Sue
Elijah Taylor
Eisenhuth
Rochow
McQueen
MCK
Apart from Grant and Sue, all of them have a contract for 2019 and in some cases beyond.
So what other clubs do you want us to pay them to play for?

I’ve only watched the game live and haven’t had a chance to look at it closely. Did McQueen only play 20 minutes? If so, why?
Well, he made little impact, could be why.
Bigger question, is he ever going to recapture the form that made him a marquee player and if not, what to do about it?
Persuade him to retire?

Maybe bit longer. Then not used again. No word on injury. If not injured persume coach not happy with him
If the coach is not happy with McQueen then he should retire him. It is very obvious that he is nowhere near the player he once was. To persevere with him is to risk a serious injury.

Evans (contracted till 2020 but currently languishing in reserve grade).
Hmm target a guy who isn’t good enough to make it into the side coming last .
Maybe set our sights higher than that ?
He’s languishing there because he’s less than no good. :

I think our forwards are giving it all they've got. Sadly, that's not a lot.

Almost every other side has forwards that can run a good line, throw a decent pass or have some speed. The only forward we have that comes close is Chris Lawrence.

This puts enormous pressure on our backs to do it all and is a big reason why we're one of the worst attacking sides.

Even though he's killing it in the centres, Marsters could be an option.

You forgot Alioia. He should be the first to go.
:crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy
Maybe first and second. He is completely useless.

On another note, one of the criteria for our next recruiting drive MUST be that the players can hang onto a ball.

The sad part is these boys were holding their own against the best sides late last season and early this season its sad seeing it go bad again.

So McDud has played two games?
Can anyway tell me he looked interested at any point in either?
