We declined when Farah went off

Halatau goes to hooker and suddenly nothing goes right, if Taylor wants to bench Farah he needs to have someone who is capable of replacing him.

Yeah I don't understand the logic in it ??
After half time next week we'll most likely get slaughtered !
Without woods and Farah on we look lost IMO

Rubbish. We had Tapau, Woods and Galloway all off with Farah but you blame Dene pfft.

Dene had a great game defense and attack.

Smart move by Taylor to test the young kids wthout the leaders. They handled it beautifully.

Halatau is defensively capable of replacing him. He defended pretty well and seemed fine getting to the ruck. Although I don't really understand the interchange either..

Look more an issue that at the same time we had no Keefy , Farah , Woods and Taupau

That's the problem in my opinion

Halatau was great. His service was great at dummy half and in the forwards he made some real good runs. His defence was also quality.

I doubted him but after that performance he has a spot in the team and can really help us out.

Dene shows no composure and can not pass. We need creativity from the hooker position and he doesn't offer that, what are we getting out of playing him? yes Farah gets a break but we are failing when he is off. He is capeable of 80.

The game was well within our control when Farah went off. The youngsters were able to take a bit more responsibility with their captain off the field. If Dragons scored a try within this period, which they didn't, Farah would be have been back on is a flash. Talking about Farah I wonder if he remembered that little hole in the Campbelltown fence tonight. It now seems like a long time ago thank goodness.

Halatau's passing game was fine tonight, as was his effort and performance. We had our 3 main go-forward players all sitting on the bench - that was the problem and the metres Woods, Galloway and Taupau each made prove it.

I don't think you watched the game. Dene was good. Robbie took some poor options.

Can tell your young mate. More to it than that, Woods, Galloway and Taupau all off the field at the same time as Farah.

Is Taylor trying to conserve Robbie and reduce his chance of injury? Robbie always hated being benched and can play the 80.

I'm just curious as to why Taylor has taken this approach.

Dene went alright tonight and he has good experience which is extremely valuable, but I would much rather a sparky player like Cherrington coming on who is a bit more creative than Halatau playing hooker if that is the approach Taylor intends on using each game. Would also help us hold onto Cherrington long term so he doesn't look for other options to get game time. Halatau is definitely a better utility though.

I just think we might be better off with an extra prop or strike back rower on the bench though especially when our big units come off. We seemed to lose momentum with Keith, Woods and Marty and Farah off the field.

Im thinking Taylor is killing two birds with one stone, one reducing Farah's over importance at the club and two putting Brooks and Moses under pressure without Farah to make them better all round players.

Halatau went good , but I think .. ( not that I'm entitled to it ) a memo from the coach in his benching of Farah ?
Although Robbie doesn't seem upset about it .

Yep I am no Halatau fan but I have no complaints about tonight, and indeed contrary to the OP I thought the first 10 after half time we looked OK.

Halatau's service from dummy half is poor. Always has been.
