Im angry too, everyone is but its no reason to carry on and lose your head like a lot of what has been posted already.

Considering Galloway and Nofo will most likely come into the side and I think Fults will be lucky to play that will be 3 changes anyway.

How many changes do people want?

Also aside from maybe Austin for Anasta this is pretty much the best we have available.

I didnt expect Braith to be dropped but i was hoping for some positive change in the backrow. I saw BMM as a must in the 17, even starting. Or maybe Sue to start. Someone with more punch than Thompson.

In my work if you do a dud first job, you get to have another go at it. Most people are horrified they stuffed up and the good ones try much harder - with some guidance. The others don't get another chance soon. I am sure that many of the team will put in a lot harder this week, I hope it'll be enough.

Just hope the boys turn up to play this week. Sure would prefer to see a competitive game than a repeat of the last 20 minutes last week.

Nofo named so that could cause something of a late reshuffle.

Expect changes...as someone used to always say

I just look at Raheem Sterling who was playing like a busted for liverpool for 2 months or more and now he's a deadset world beater. If I was coach I would have dropped him after 3 games, but the coaches see the players every day at training and make decisions based on that and players available. Nobody seriously expected us to win the comp not in round one anyhow.

I watched them play cronulla last night and I thought they were very poor. They had plenty of ball and could only score 2 tries from an intercept and a lucky kick I thought their halves had nothing. It was a very boring game I don't think there a single break all night.

would be good to see the sauce play together with Nofo

My biggest disappointment is not seeing BMM in there, he brings in a lot of energy.
Does a lot of ball running off the halves..

Ah well, im sure he will eventually be in together with Austin

All i want is us winning unlike some so called fans saying Titans by a lot
like seriously :wtf

Potter is the same coach who kept selecting the second rower (Spence) who shifted to Parramatta this year. Santi who also went to Parramatta this year wasn't ever selected for first grade but most agree he was the better second rower. We could certainly use him now.

I don't know why some people want wholesale changes after one week...

The attitude needs to change, not the individuals.

Potz had to go with the same squad for this week and probably for next week as well regardless of the result with the only changes being players returning from injury, but if the performance hasn't improved by round 4 or 5 then some heads might roll.

People can say it's only Round 2, and they deserve a second chance. True I will give them another chance. However i just hope the players don't see it this way. They clearly did under Sheens and it set in a culture of mediocrity amoung senior players.

Its not bout losing its the way you lose, and sometimes guys need to be said no second chances, conceed 40+ to Saints and there are consequences. I don't see any urgency from WT's and I wonder why sometimes?? Blokes are not playing for their postions they are is cruise mode (Lawrence, Anasta, Blair, Thompson etc)

They had a disrupted prep last week but it was still unacceptable. Sometimes I think their needs to be consequences for unacceptable things in any walk of life. I would have preferred Austin in the Braith and Blair out of the starting side, but thats just me.

reading all these comments, im so glad potter is in charge and not this forum.

dropping half the squad after one game is the same as having half our squad injured (like last year) and losing all cohesion as players come in and out week after week.

consistency in the squad WINS GAMES.

so what happens if austin has a horrible game next week? drop him too and bring up moses? oh he gets injured, well it's time for fults to slot in at 6 again.
