If you were interested in the team winning you'd see this.
If you were interested in the team winning by more or not have to chase a lead you might want him on for the 80.
We are a far better team when he is on the paddock.

Just think what might of been if our defense didn't stiffle the Pamfers from scoring 5-6 more TRIES .....Penalties and possession was in their favour...

The scramble from our guys was imppresive...the set defense still needs a heap of work if we want to contend in finals footy...Josh and Brett Morris will be licking their lips next week...

I don't think Farah has quality 80 mins in him. His performances off the bench has vindicated Taylor's decision.
Only Farah's staunchest supporters don't see it.

Defence is important but it's obvious that when we attack we are a quality footy team.
And how would we attacked if our defence didn't create so many turnovers

Pease don't take this the wrong way Steve , but at first I thought you were just stirring the pot , now I just think you lack a clue
I like Steve. He has an opinion. I agree with very little of them but at least they are well formed. Once again I dont agree with what he says here but lacking a clue is a bit harsh.
I don't mind Steve either ST

He's just wrong , that's all

Of course I am happy with the result but hasn't on previous occasion Farah kept no. 9 inspite of being on bench?

Was there not much action on Brookes side of the field last night for him being MIA?

The fact that Penrith enjoyed 60 % of the ball and that they threw plenty at us without scoring for 50 minutes shows that our defense went a long way towards winning us the game. Actually, I thought the team showed a lot of determination, guts and desire to play for each other despite being caned by an unfair, incompetent performance by the referees. Having said that, the brilliance of our attack kept us far enough in front that we were never really threatened after half time. I thought it was an excellent effort that demonstrated improving maturity, as well as effective attack and defense.

So, you're saying Halatau is doing a great job when he's on in place of Farah?
What a waste that is.
If you don't see the team wants Farah out there and lift when he comes on you're not watching too closely.
If Taylor sticks to running another hooker out they should blood Liddle (unless cap restraints are stopping them).
That kid is going to be really good.

I don't see the point of only playing Halatua for 18 mins. Farah playing 60 odd minutes is working tho.

He may just be keeping him as a reserve in case of injury but is otherwise happy to let the balance of the forwards play slightly longer minutes. With the exception of Aloiai they all seem to have the tanks for it and they're all probably going to be more effective than Dene (even if he is on fresh legs).

What is this under 12's? The number he's wearing means nothing. Josh Morris was wearing No. 23 the other night and I'm sure he couldn't have cared less.

If that's the thinking then i wonder if he's working up to Liddle debuting.

It really was a good defensive effort, held them out many times. They did much better than I thought they would, it was good to see, hope they can keep up the good work. Sue was awesome

Yeah maybe, I think he's probably entitled to be cautious about the prospect of debuting a 19 year old at hooker. I wouldn't be doing it against the Dogs pack but maybe Round 20 against the Dragons after having a good look at him over the next few weeks in NSW Cup.

Agree once Farah came out the team fired looked much more cohesive imo. He also backed up and scored a brilliant try too, not sure what else the bloke has to do to be honest. Great game Robbie.
