our top 17 can win comp

Unread post by king sirro » Mon 28 Mar, 2016 6:32 pm

But i fear Taylor will never pick out top 17.

I dont blame him for leaving Edwards out, he needed match fitness, but he must come in next week.

2 hookers on the bench? Seriously thats sackable and ive been a Taylor supporter.

Buchanan is getting into the Trent Runcimen and Chris Patterson class.

Rankin on the wing? He's a good player not a winger. Its not fair on him. Addo Carr scores off that Brooks kick in the first half.

Lawrence and Edwards come in with Lovett and Buchanan out.

Can we have Farah, Cherro and Halatau?

I thought Farah was good today.


Our top 17 goes very good. But we are carrying 4 or so players that are second rate

Edwards is a defensive specialist and we defended very well but he can't be worse than Buchanan. Agreed on the hookers. We can't have Halatau, Lovett and Buchanan in the same side. Hell I don't think we can have any of them.

Halatau > Griffin
Lovett > Chee Kam
Buchanan > Edwards
Rankin > Addo Carr

Boom. Several levels better side in a heartbeat.

Calm down mate.

I never thought we'd win the last 2 games. Titans and Eels.

I bet on the tigers winning first two but not last two. The next few games we will get a fair indication of how we are fairing.

i could see us losing to the knights next week (if that's who we're playing), we're still an inconsistent young team learning, which is fine by me.

We can win the comp it Brooks and Moses improve a lot. Then we need Siro to turn into a gun player. Then we need a lot of luck and probably a new coach.

It's a long way off but yes it's possible.

Boom. Several levels better side in a heartbeat.
Three of those have never played first grade you realise... Griffin and MCK endurance must be minimal in NRL... And JAC s D is questionable.... I don't think it's time for mass sackings.
Maybe we just aren't as good as we thought.... Granted I didn't see today's game but I like the sound of the defence being good... That in itself is another process that's been occurring since the beginning of last year

Give them some more time, still really early...we might lose the next two but things do look better than last year

Chee Kam and Edwards both have played first grade. Griffin has played more games of senior rugby league than most of our other players. JAC's D is questionable how? Griffin is known primary for his endurance. Lovett and Buchanan probably wouldn't have played any first grade either if they were at other clubs. Edwards has played more first grade than all four of the players I named.

Its not a matter of mass changes, its more a matter of obvious changes. Lawrence comes straight back in. Edwards is now match fit and played well on saturday. That means the average Lovett goes. Buchanan had his chance today (u didn't see the game ) with Grant being injured and was embarrassing. He is replaced by anyone, MCK, Felise, Graham, desnt matter who, they will all be better.

Rankin replaced by a genuine winger.

Thats 4 changes, but in reality it's only 2 when u consider Lawrence and Edwards were considered top 17 at seasons beginning.

You can't win first grade games with second grade players, Buchanan Rankin Cherrington, Sue is no Tapau and if the Dogs want Brooks let them have him. And don't get me started on Taylor.

Talk about some wrist slitters on this Forum :brick: .

8-0 loss , hardly an embarrassment....they beat us by one try :roll: . Parra are going to go deep in this Comp .

We lacked some ideas at times in attack and handed over cheap possession at times.....the Eels defence is brilliant .
Thought the effort and commitment was there just didn't execute our plays well.

Didn't understand JT's tactic in leaving Cherrington unused till the 70th minute and loosing Grant early in the 1st half for failing a concussion test hurt us and we could of done having an extra forward instead of having Cherrington sitting on the sidelines watching the game.

I must admit Farah makes our attack look so Pedestrian at times and is way to slow with his service...he seems undecided at times with the ball like not sure if he has to pass it or run it , we know we can rely on his defence but just seemed very Pedestrian for my liking Today.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.
