Webster sounds a lot like JT in the press conferences
who sounded like Mick Potter

There is a reason Wayne Bennett doesnt say much, he struggles to sugar coast rubbish performances with nice words

Woods look like a bloke that is over it.

Not much passion on show all year for him off the field.

Bad leader of this club.

"It's an easy fix".
Oh yeah? Then why wasn't it fixed after last week or the weeks before that?
That sums it up for me. Webster has no idea what he's doing.

It's at a point where you can only laugh at the right side defence. It's beyond humiliating. Teams just know to go there when they play us. Wouldn't be surprised if it were a running joke among players from other clubs. That's how embarrassing it is.
Has been this way for a while. I really question Simona's intelligence, why wouldn't he back the blokes playing on that side to be the first try scorer.

Unfortunately I think the more we lose the less chance we have of retaining Teddy, much less any of the other players off contract. But maybe what we need is to completely start again, not just on the field but in the board room as well.

I just wish we had a coach with the balls to say, "that was absolute rubbish. There's no excuses for that performance".

Nightingale let the cat out of the bag at halftime today. When asked whether St George knew WT rushed up and in leaving a 20 metre free passage to the tryline he sort of grinned and said "well, yeah we knew". 99.9% of the time players are asked obvious questions they consider their response and lie but he couldn't even bring himself to do that. When he conceded that it really hit home what a farce our " defensive structure" is.
Embarrassing does not even begin to aptly describe it.
Thank God it is an easy fix, watch out Cowboys left-side attack next week....we are onto you.

Farcical is probably the word that sums it up.

Not a lot of truths in that Press Conference...
Not a lot of confidence either.

If the defense is such an easy fix then why wasn't it fixed eons ago?

Shut your mouth or you will end up in the naughty corner

Webster said that despite conceding four tries down the right hand side of the field, he was adamant the mistakes could be rectified ahead of the team's clash against the Cowboys. “Its an easy fix," he enthused.

An easy fix would be to drop half the team.

Timmy Sim has advised the boys on how to up the going price on the premiership market, play like an SG Ball side for the first 8 weeks and then hit the pedal to the metal. We are specials, I'm waiting till we are 1W-9L until I jump on. As good as bank interest. It's an easy fix.

If you saw some of the comments last week from Fletcher ,Hindmarsh and Finch from the Matty Johns show , they had some comments as they switched stories

Jason Taylor said it himself in an post match interview I believe .....
