That old chestnut hey,

Worked in the past sticking with all the experience mid season. There is hardly any accountability at this club over a period of time. I agree there is hardly anything in the cup board and Taylor is not blessed with options.

However it annoys me when people use it to say we should not make changes just because there is not much else there. it creates a culture of mediocrity and just plain indifference.

"experience" is an over used word. Unless you say experience at playing dud football for long periods, some of our senior players are champions at that.

Chris Lawrence and co have benefitted from this attitude for years. If we dumped him out are we missing out on? We can hardly be any worse.
Hey! Mr Negativity - you could do a lot worse than Rowdy, believe me.

You recruit, you cut, you create your squad for the season and that is what you work with.
No coach in his right mind makes unforced changes unless absolutely necessary....its how things work.
Im not sure its the players we have thats the problem...yeh our roster could be a helluva lot better, but we are still paying for previous seasons and admins in this regard....imo our main problem is attitude and game plan....we havent turned up the last two outings and our game plan is focussing on completions and defence at the expense of attack....I sorta see why but its hard to watch and not at all entertaining...but I can see a method to the madness

Reading these comments, who did people expect to play?

Buchannen came in for woods seemed obvious.

Halatau to start at hooker, this seemed likely

and one Santi, Hoeter or Luani to come into the side with Taylor not decided on final make up of the side.

This side has a-lot more "experience" than is being credited for,.,,they have heaps of "experience" in handling a loss...its time they gained some winning "experience"

Looking at that bench shows where our depth is at. After Jesse it is a drop to Ava then a slide from there on.

The only person I would have liked to come in would be Cherrington, but yes, as others have said...........what is everyone expecting?

I think there are some unrealistic expectations going on.............at least we aren't getting smashed week in week out.

We have no excuse, NQL are far more affected then us by origin.

Expect Hoeter to centre and Lawrence to bench.

Looking forward to the half's taking control and hopefully getting some clean ball from dummy half.

I was really sceptical about Halatau early on but he's playing 05 form, plus wiser.

If we are fair dinkum about rewarding State Cup form then Luani deserves a call up...he has been one of the best most consistent performers...

Cherrington's time will come....

Have a feeling Lawrence won't play...

I'm going to go out on a limb here. Expect the halves to do better with no Farah around.

If we score more then 12 points I will be amazed with that side. A cold night at Ctown watching plodders do 5 hits up and a bomb.

Should be good fun. As my mate said a trip to the dentist would be more fun then watching the Tigers.
Got the excuses.going already I see.
Would be a different story if it were a sunny Sunday arvo at Leigh hard no doubt.

I agree with the first part of your comment in that I think our game plan and attitude at the moment is poor. I don't see though any method to the madness at this point.

You need to defend well, you need to play disciplined footy but you also need to score points. I think that we are getting all facets wrong at this point.

This morning's news on the radio is that Michael Morgan is very unlikely to play for Cowboys on Saturday. He is joining the Maroons at training as a likely replacement for Cherry-Evans.

Morgan called in as Cherry-Evans cover
Tue 19 May, 2015, 9:00pm
By Tony Webeck, Chief Queensland Correspondent, NRL.com

Cowboys five-eighth Michael Morgan has been called into the Maroons camp for Game One of the Holden State of Origin Series as speculation mounts that Daly Cherry-Evans will have to withdraw due to a shoulder injury sustained against the Panthers on Monday night.

Having had scans on his shoulder on Tuesday morning Cherry-Evans was en route to Brisbane when the Queensland team was announced on Tuesday afternoon before joining up with the squad for their first training run at the Queensland Academy of Sport on Tuesday afternoon.

Cherry-Evans took no part in the session, instead engaging in deep discussions with coach Mal Meninga and the Maroons' medical staff as to the extent of the injury.

While some reports surfaced suggesting that Cherry-Evans had been ruled out, the Queensland Rugby League said that a decision would not be made until Tuesday as they confirmed Morgan would be joining the camp.

I agree,esp.longterm,Robbie has to slowly ease himself out of a lot of plays and should be used as a decoy more as rival clubs all have Forwards assigned to put him out of business.My 2c.
