Spot on, plus the fact the boys kept pushing the ball too early and turning it over.

Yeah.
* Heat conditions
* Strong difference in tackle COUNT
* And having to play the last 60 without payten or moltzen. so effectively playing with 15 which included 2 forwards who arent really minutes men (more just impact players...moors and fafita), and also having to have Fitzhenry there.

I'm pinning my hopes on the fact that Lazo travelled with the team to Canberra when we had halves in doubt.
Surely sheens isn;t that silly as to put fitzhenry or someone similar in there..
Surely.....

Tim would not be talking up Lazarus regardless of his decision.

He likes to ease debutants in with as little hoopla and media exposure as possible

I really hope so. I like to see Blake Lazarus given a go but have a strong felling t hat with Sheens it will be Marshall at half with either Fulton/Flanagan at 5/8; really hope i am wrong about this.

Lazrus or Taumata and Fitzy on the bench to cover. No brainer dare I say.

Sheens has shown he is capable of some cr*p decisions in the past... My major concerns are that:

(a) Benji will be moved to 1/2 with Fitzhenry to 5/8 :( or
(b) Robbie will be moved to 1/2 :(

For God's sake, please pick a HALF at HALF. Weakening one position to strengthen another just doesn't work.

Yes it is a loss and yes I agree we replace a half with a half but we were not even getting the basics right alot of the time, stuffing up second man plays etc.

The Townsville conditions drain a player physically and mentally and getting spanked in the penalties and doing a mountain more defence was the biggest factor in the brain dead second portion
I agree smeg, we had no ball, no field position, lost key players, had a centre on a dodgy knee, ellis loses teeth and gets his nose mashed, we lose toddy....but we hung in, we hung tough, Im very proud of them tonite

agree with that but like smeg also said the basics were lacking and there was no linkage between marshall and ho ever was playing 7.

the first try we scored is a prime example of the importance of great linkage between the halves
Do you expect cohesion - or linkage :? - between marshall and the 7 when the 7 in the 2nd half was at times marshall himself, Fitzy & Farah....its one of those things when your main man goes down you make do as best as possible - ad lib

Blake was brought down to Canberra on stand-by for Benji. You'd have to assume that he'd be Sheens' first choice for halfback next week.

I could imagine some of the teams though.

If that lottery went wrong it would be a disaster

was at the bret game today Lazarus was ordinary in a game of football that was A for average, a couple of the forwards went okay but the halves were terrible. Didnt catch the wests game so cant comment on their halves.

well ink, the point is the linkage between marshall and his halves partner wasnt there once moltz went down and if the other half is gonna come from within the squad that played tonight we are in big trouble.

you seen to have forgotten how poor we have fared in the halves over the past 4 years because of sheens persistance with makeshift playmeakers partnering marshall. when have we ever looked this good in attack? 2005 maybe? when we had 2 halves in the halves positions

If we had held onto the ball and grinded it out from the start of the 2nd half we would have put a lot more points on.

Still Moltzen there does allow Benji plenty of space out wide beacuse he has the ability to throw a real good long pass.
I dont know what game you were watching but Marshall was fantastic!

Makeshift 5/8 didn't help him today. That and the teams support play has gone out the window since round 2.

Anyway it will be intriguing to see who runs out there Friday night

Does 'if that lottery went wrong' mean 'if Sheens wins it'?
