Is this the laziest, most ineffective backrow in history? They should all give back their pay this week. Pathetic.

I'd add BMM to that list as well after tonight's game

Yeah fully agree mate, all arm grabbers in the first half, the Bunnies - even the smaller ones, just punched holes right through them.

Completely agree -Blair , Thompson are always horrible and pettybourne is inconsistent and last night was his worst missing 5 tackles in 30 mins and then you have BMM coming on who is even lazier

It's unfair to put Thompson in the same category. He wasn't great but Blair, BMM and Pettybourne were otherwordly bad.

Honestly our whole team is a park footy team bar 2 or 3 players, this is the disappointing reality our injured players are just on the edge of 1st grade bottom of the table players.

Park footy teams play with pride. Don't insult park footy teams by comparing them to some of our dross

I was having coffee with Wayne Bennett years ago, and he said it all starts with the 9...

The 9 needs to deliver using his 8 & 10, balanced with a good 7 & 6.
Without the 9; 8 & 10; and 7 & 6 doing there jobs, the 11; 12 & 13 are ineffective!

We have no centres , no halfback , no back row , no props other then woods ( although credit to the young props they all try hard just can have 3 of them in the team at this stage) and a weak bench but the back row is the low point of our team because those 3 are our full strength back row supposedly although Fulton I suppose who was his usual defensive machine

We obviously don't know anything about footy buddy. Haven't you listened to Blair lately talk about how all his team mates and the coaching staff know all the important little things he does? ( like hitting defenceless kickers after they have kicked the ball) :roll: :roll:

Blair is far more effective in the 13

But what did people expect with Pettybourne,Thompson and even BMM, they are fringe first graders at best and play like fringe first graders

People get angry about Fulton being resigned ,he is the only decent second rower we have despite his lack of size

Liam plays better than those you mentioned, but if we want to be a competitive football team across the park, he will need to go also.

As we have discussed many times, when Liam Fulton is one of your best forwards, its not hard to realise why we dont win premierships!

Pettybourne should never be allowed to wear the jumper again after his first half lack of defence letting 3 tries in at least !

And thats why we are keeping him Watto ,until the Santis ,Lovetts and possibly Vela's are ready to step up

They will learn a lot from Fulton ,especially about defence and high work rate and putting it all on the line every week

If we are relying on Santi coming through to be a good backrow we may as well hand the NRL license back to the Commission now

Robbie seems to be getting away from playing as a 9 doesn't he. I just think he needs to do that. Woods also had a shocker and Sue got done up the middle.

The problem is that doesn't explain why our backrow have been fairly ordinary barring Fulton all year.
