He half sat out due to turf toe, not knocking him on it, but he was a passenger for most of that game as others worked us up and down the field.

I personally can see potters experiment this week, I dont think we wil be hampered in the field percentage with Benji gone, and can understand the option of setting Liam the task of tattooing himself on Sutton. Potter seems like a fool to many, but i see him trying to identify our strengths and weaknesses. I just wish we had a full compliment to allow Potter to experiment across the board.

Disagree gun, it has been a couple of years since Benji was our best player. He deserved to be relegated.

The problem I have is that Potter is trying to prevent us being down by 24 in the first 30 minutes, but there is not enough skill in that halves pairing to score any more than 10-12 points.

I love that Potter benched him, but part of me cannot help but think they were both in on it. Particularly after his article on the weekend. Could have been Benjis idea.....I hope not though.

It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Fulton at 6 is like giving me a run. I'm a 44 year old prop/second-rower who hasn't played footy since 2005 but [automatically edited] it give me a run. LOL!

So much hate for Benji - he might not be playing great, but neither has anyone else. He's one of the stars of our team and now we've basically sent him packing. Mark my words, if he does indeed go to Penrith, he will absolutely murder us next year.

Everyone seems so obsessed with Fulton defending against Sutton. Who cares? There's no way we will score a point with Fulton and Siro in the halves. Fulton tries hard but all he can do is tackle. You don't put players at 5/8 because they can tackle. That's just insane.

The big problem with this team is Potter and the coaching staff. Potter has shown himself to be an incredibly poor coach this season. Stupid team selections, no structure in attack or defense. He reminds me of Steve Kearney, but possibly worse. At least with Sheens we were interesting to watch. We attacked all the time. With Potter we have NO attack and our defense is even worse. ITs painful watching them play.

I just cant see how taking our best defender out of the forwards against such a big and mobile forward pack is a good thing. Apart from Robbie who else is going to stop them

Sutton would run straight over the top of Benji on current form and has been tearing teams part all year
Yep, spot on. It seems to me our side has been picked this week looking towards minimalising the damage on the scoreline more so than winning. That said, Fults won't go any worse than Benji has been going. Just hammer Sutton the big skirt, he doesn't seem to like the physical stuff much, he is a front-runner of the highest order.

I dont think Fulton is there only to tackle Sutton... We have started every game strong, had trouble converting into points but have been in the arm-wrestle against the best. Not trying to put the boot into Benji, but he often released the pressure through poor kicking and decisions, which turns the tide of field position and pressure to which we eventually buckle. Fulton will be no frills, stick to the game plan, lift the defence and just be his solid self. The Bunnies will punish us for the smallest of mistakes and with half decent field position have a pack that will roll them into striking distance.

Yes we get the benefit of starting with an extra second rower on the park, but he is more than capable of pulling off a standard dependable halves roll... getting us into a grind and keeping us there.

What is the story smoking gun you are close to the action. Is Potter a dud ?

The way i look at it Fulton has been playing 5/8 anyhow only difference from a normal 5/8 is he never passes the ball.

Wouldn't mind betting until benji comes on robbie will play half sirro at 6 and Liam will play dummy half,once benji comes on Liam will act as the extra forward robbie back to 9 I think this dropping of benchy and naming Liam at 6 is all smoke and mirrors and a kick in the bum to benji he will be on within 20 mins and stay on.

SG it wasn't rocket science. People on this forum are still deluded by a belief that Sheens was to blame.
