We still don't win 'the forward battle'. The players are there. It's a pretty decent pack, in reality.

But just when we find a team you could physically get on top of, like the Knights, instead of beating them into submission with deep runs & momentum, we get a little too 'creative' in our skill players & forget that guys like Woods, Grant, Sue & Ava have been giving solid performances, winning performances, only we don't stick with it long enough.

I agree

Mongrel gets you only so far and usually with Mongrel comes Uncontrolled aggression....so it's a fine balance.
Mongrel players don't mean there good footballers they usually cost there side more penalties than what not .
The way the game has become Mongrel hasn't got much room in the game anyway as No Shoulder charges are allowed , can't pick up a player in tackles , no fisties are allowed .
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.

Some players get away with it a lot better than others too.

Some of our forwards play well,but as a Pack...we get DOMINATED by the opposition.Is this due to lack of motivation from our coach ?

woods has been awesome all year. really picked up on where he left off last year.

unfortunate about sue, he's got a few head knocks this year now. 2nd best behind woods.

grant has been good all year but he was absolutely dominated in every tackle against the knights.

lawrence, he's still my man crush.

all the others halatau, siro, ava, lovett, aloaiai need to pick up their game. ava was very good last year but has dropped off this year.

our bench is letting us down a lot. i don't think forum's favourite MCK is the solution. neither is buchanan. you play with the cards you're dealt with and apart from a couple of positional changes, these are the best we have. they just need to play like they wanna win.

If Graham, JGrant, Edwards and Griffin aren't better options than Buchanan, then they should be released. I read in one of the local papers out here that one of the group 6 sides big recruit was Ray Cashmere. We could get him back
