Moses copped a gob full from the members section of the crowd after throwing a lame intercept ball in the second half, he turned around and just waived his hand at the crowd. In my book your got to be mentally stronger that reacting to the crowd

If we pay overs for Teddy, we are going to be in serious trouble. Most of our backline problems emanate from him.
If anyone else in the backline (apart from Nofoaluma) was at least half-competent I'd agree with.
But as it stands Tedesco should just run himself every time he gets the ball because he's at least 10x better than anyone he's going to pass it to.
Rubbish. Give ball to Suli and Naiqama. They do alright. Naiqama may be woeful in defence but is attack is okay. Give him early ball and at least he has half a chance.

Moses has really dropped the ball in the last few weeks. He is either carrying and injury we cant see, or this whole contract thing is weighing too much on him. Do him and us a favour, tell him he has a fortnight to re sign. If he doesnt, all offers are off the table and we chase someone else.

And when i say re sign, i mean at our price, not his. Take it or leave it.

We can do as good for much less $$$$$. Probably buy a good half and a strong backrower for the same as he is being offered.

Now I know why he needs his personal sports physiologist.

Moses was a bust again today. If you try and take positives out of this it's that his price tag is plummeting. We're slowly getting the upper hand on him in negotiations I reckon, because who is going to outbid us for him? And he wants to play in a grand final side lol

You are right, no one is going to pay him what he wants, and to think his manager has screwed him over by telling him to hold off on signing is pretty bloody funny.

Suli ran the ball hard today and I believe it is a waste having him on the wing. At this stage now more benefit would be obtained by playing him at right centre.

To be honest our "big 4" are playing like random scrubs.I am totally over them, give them all a realistic offer and one week to sign it after the coaches announcement.No ifs buts or maybes all 4 are replaceable.

Nofoaluma let in the first 3 try's. Do not blame his inside men,the moron watches the ball float past him each time. His attack doesn't cancel out his disgraceful defence. Cut him loose as well.

I agree 100% Paws. At least Suli would straighten our attack.

I thought this too...his carries were great and he was safe under the ball...I wonder why Webster is persisting with leaving him on the wing a right edge of Suli and Nofo would give Moses and Teddy more options on the side we seem to favour in attack...Suli's defence has been solid..

I agree that Suli would be better in the centres but I can't agree that he runs the ball hard from kick returns. He just seems to be jogging to me and in that respect he should take a leaf out of Nofo's book but should look the other way at Nofo's defence. His defensive efforts today earn him the name Awfuluma.

Suli was one of the few that deserved any praise today

We need to upgrade his contract already

Suli can't even keep his eyes on a ball and ground it to score. That try keeps us in the contest, we lost the game right there, not good enough. He wasn't even looking at the ball ffs

right now we have no idea how to put in a collective effort

I remember seeing the Dragons in a similar sort of mess last year, hoping they would get a try, hoping there would be a saviour

Suli has a beautiful pair of hands in the classic centre mould and will put his right winger away. I also believe Nofo's defence will improve significantly because Suli is a very good defender at right centre.
