Is it just me or is Eisenhuth the reason we are improving? He is such a no-nonsense, mistake free, old school footy player. It warms the heart seeing him thrive.
Eisnehuth and Twal have been outstanding - I'm trying not to get too excited because they're very raw but they're making great plays every game. They don't even have to get much better, they're playing beautifully already. Disappointed with the result but pleased with the effort - we're on the right track.

Brooks might of let us down at the end but the service from 9 killed any chance of coming back.
Brooks is just as much to blame, he over runs the ruck, the hooker shouldn't pass, but did twice tonight at crucial times

What's 2-6? Oh well, they had a good dig. Need to work on passing, might have been a different result.

Don't be too harsh people,on McIIwrick - I hear he's carrying an injury.

Brooks no excuses. We should sign on the cheap halfback Drew Hutchinson from the Dragons.Still quite young,big,good kicking game and good defense.Good for depth at the very least,and would be cheap.Unwanted at Dragons cause of the arriving Hunt.Cheap,put pressure on Brooks,and Benji could mentor both. Better than LittleJohn. A cheap,no risk signing.

I have big concerns next year in regards to our halfback and hooker positions.
Both Brooks and Liddle don't fill me with confidence and they're in key positions, the most important positions on the Footy field IMO.

The rest of the team looks to be coming together nicely, great effort tonight and I can see the making of a competitive team being assembled but the 7 and 9 worry me.

Yeah right! there's a tree full of them out the back - you just have to pick one. Lol

He is good but it's more than him.Twal is decent as well. You need forwards that can do the job but you also need class. Tedesco has class on the field. It's a shame he doesn't have any loyalty or class off the field.

You would have thought that both MM and LB would have learned something after the first forward pass.

Brooks was pretty good. MM is an issue but he has an upside.

Wests will never be a threat while brooks is on the park.

The kid is rubbish.
he is definitely not an organiser that's for sure. brooks unfortunately looks to be solely one of those "eyes up" footballers. great in broken play, good in set plays with a rehearsed role is said play, but poor in organising his team mates in where to be and what to do when we need it most. short kicking game and ability to gain repeat sets also weak.
with his half partner being a pure runner of the ball again next year , we will struggle in the same areas.

Brooks overran it, but pretty braindead from Mcilwrick to throw it deliberately forward. Any Hooker worth their salt runs it themself or passes the other way.

Well I pick Benji over him next year, and probably Gamble as well

Certainly wouldn't worry about Liddle - he is quick, good defender, creative and a pretty good passer.
Needs to work on his kicking game and he'll be a great all rounder.

Brooks - I still say he will be ok under Cleary, give him the off season, a new partner - all the while remembering that Nathan had a great teacher - now Brooks has that same teacher. Watch him improve.

Look... I think we are all disappointed we didn't get the win. Coulda shoulda didn't, whatever
Over the last few seasons all we die hards have wanted is a team that tries its ring out and we can be proud of.
Tonight was one of those, as have the last few weeks.
If we can continue this attitude with some quality team players coming to slot in I think we will have many better weeks than not next year.

I reckon our best halves pairing will be Brooks and Marshall. I also like IC but he stuffed up buying Reynolds.
