Stupid selections

Post by Milky » Mon 28 Mar, 2016 6:08 pm

Honestly, Buchanan has to go, Lovett i can live with...Buchanan has to go.

Rankin on the wing...he is a fullback or half, blind fred knows it, we all know it, he needs to go.

2 forwards on the bench...Grant goes down, we have Buchanan left on the bench...

We looked absolutely fatigued, maybe its due to having one forward on the bench?

Taylor needs to stop making stupid selections or go.

Ava was on the bench - but I do agree Bucanan is a waste.

For those who think our selections are crazy - I saw this posted on FB - can't authenticate any of it but it is a good read.

Rankin is a ghost on that wing, ineffective to have him there.

Ado needs to be given his chance before he is lured by other clubs with a promise of a starting position.

The only thing that kept us in the game today was heart, we just did not have the back-up forwards to force a few handy breaks and make at lest one try. Grant was injured and Woods looked like he played the full match. The very stupid decision to play 3 hookers was not only ludicrous but embarrassing to the club. New players Edwards, Chee Kam and Josh Carr have shown their potential in state Cup and have to be very big chances for selection in first grade against Cronulla.

Taylor should get a good kick up the clacker.

Idiocy. My girlfriend showed me the team an hr before the game when team lists were released and when I saw Halatau at hooker I figured Cherrington dropped out. I did a double take when I saw both he and Farah were there. Then throw in Big Jack the clot. Though, if TT is too believed we have the cap to blame for our team selections. What else is new though,

We did very well not to get really towelled up today. Parra were also a little sloppy in attack but we did well to only lose by 8 today.

Our attack was very ordinary....too many passes went behind the player or to no player at all.

Mistakes are certainly costly & killing us.....Sauso lost the ball 3 times today, Lovett gave away 3 penalties and the mistakes just went on and on.

I don't know what our best side is but having 3 hookers in your 17 can't be the best way to play a game of footy. Buchannan could not bust a tackle in the Under 7's, he just add's nothing to that team, he runs soft, he tackles soft.....I'm not sure what JT's thinking is but surely players like Chee Kam & Ado Carr offer the side more versatility and definately more speed on the flank.

Don't know if Griffin & Edwards are also playing in NSW cup but I find it hard to believe that the 17 picked today was our best balanced side.

Can't fault the effort but theres still plenty of work to do.

Our friend Jarryd Maxwell had more to do with the result than the coaches selections. To stay in touch with a supposed top 4 side, and without Lawrence, and losing Grant....

Credit where it is due, the boys played tough. 2 nil at half time. 8 nil at full time and you think the coach is an idiot? Please.

Yeah, defo didn't get smashed.
Hard pill to swallow though.
Our defense was pretty top tier but a was Parra's and by the looks of it Foran wasn't even firing, they're a real threat this year.

I don't think Gutherson is anything special on the wing though, but we can't talk... We've got Rankin, who is awful.

Edwards was in the sheds in playing gear, they preferred Buchanan apparently
