Change is required coach around our strengths and adopt game plans accordingly.

That last sentence is spot on, EODT! What's the point of trying to adopt the exact type of game plan with a totally different type of team? Sure, some elements of the Roosters old game plans may be used, but a good coach should be able to recognise the strengths and weaknesses of each individual and work out a new game plan from there, not just try to implement a carbon copy of the structures from his previous squad. Well said, mate.

What i thought was a shocker was the ball bouncing off Teddy's chest as he went to catch it

For a Fullback in the mix for NSW that was a schoolboy error

Idk what's missing. We have footballer and athletes all around the park. Honestly, our 1-17 is first grade material. Our coaching team is not too bad either.

Is it just the inexperience? We do seem boring- it's frustrating to not see results but I don't know how long we'll have to wait for that.

It was a terrible game, and though JT will trot out the same quotes about "learning experiences", I hope he realizes that it also applies to him. He has a long way to go as a first grade coach.
Vanilla, your last two sentences just about sum it up for me, very disappointed in todays lacklustre effort on the heels of being smashed last week. Coach needs to drive the team to a big improvement next Saturday night otherwise it might be time to get Potter back to support him. JT can concentrate on his structure and Potter can make the hard decisions.

Agree .. We have talent
Think we are missing confidence.
We seem to be missing that ONE match winner, like we used to have in Benji
One that does something, backs himself.

We are too tamed to be called the tigers at the moment.

Twmba Tigerman wrote:I with you Tigermama. Very ordinary game and some players that are considered safe in the team need to look at themselves. My thoughts north of the border is that Brooks and Moses have far too much pressure on them for what they do for the team. I reckon both are going okay and will develop into something solid. I am a big fan of Sironen but have a good look at his stats and impact on the game. Not much happening there. Big Keith also does little to impact the result of the game. Other forum criticism of Farrah is also justified as his form is very ordinary and unfortunately time is coming for Chris Lawrence. Family has been on suicide watch tonight as I get over another loss.
LOL..On the last sentence TT :lol:
I can relate. Family and I are all sulking :(

This team lacks the will to win & the "know how" to win. The match was really on the line today at 12-12 and we had some really good chances to win but each time we turned the ball over, stupid plays , not to mention the scrum loss against the feed......you just have to say that our team ATM are not really good enough to win week in week out. We will have some good weeks but most will be frustrating like today was.

It will be interesting to see how we go while Farah is on origin duty. Personally I think he offers very little for his $900k a year. Slow around the ruck, slow service to ball runners....everything here is a sign of a bloke in his early 30's and past his best.

JT obviously is trying to instill some structures in this team but we just aren't playing attractive footy, I can put my finger on it but having the forwards run 4 single plays, then use the 5th on the backs and then the high bomb for the last tackle really is so predictable ATM its not funny. Boring Boring Boring.

Wake me up when we start playing footy again.

My sentiments exactly WTD!

Only from Coogee to Concord - not such a long way.

Wests Tigers lost all of their match winners, Benji, Austin, Koro and even Bodene Thompson. We traded some of these for players like Moses who certainly hasn't shown anything as a 1st grade 5/8 that looks match winning.

He had a couple of good runs and defended well, but he needs to improve his passing and kicking game. He was a tiny bright spark in a totally dull and boring game. :|

Sometimes I feel they just don't care. When they lost that scrum against the feed, I said to my son - watch this , they'll go up the other end and score now. What happened....? Predictability happened. Yeah, Moses made two decent runs....when the defence in front of him was non existant. Sheesh, Collis or Ayshford could have done that. Not his fault though if he's being told to withhold his enthusiasm. Who knows wtf is being said by the coach? I wonder if the Potter bashers are still happy?

While its hard not to like Naiqama, the guy is a liability. He conceeds at least 1 try a game, sometimes 3

Siro is just a big cat. Offers nothing for his size.
