Who were the 2 players being made to do sprints by one of our trainers on the field after everyone was already on their way to the sheds? Harsh! I couldn't quite make out who they were on my iPad.

No idea how Ivan can pick our outside backs. All played well. Marsters and Nofo are the certainties for me. The other centre and wing spot could go to any of them. Interesting that when Milne came on Marsters shifted to left centre.

Gamble looks like he could be a genuine optin at 1, 6 or 3 if injuries hit.
Marsters and Milne will be our centres they are both are strong and create opportunities.
Milne and Nofa look to be a good combination will cause plenty of tackle busts.
MWZ and Marsters look potent on the left.
MWZ looks superb must have spent the off-season with the Sharks.

One was definitely Fonua. I think the other was Reynolds

JJ was impressive tonight ... Gamble is a genuine goalkicker and he is my pick to be the surprise of the season. Ronnie Palmer has obviously prepared our team well.

Cool thanks. I'm guessing Fonua was being punished for ill discipline but not sure why Reynolds would be there.

Other forums are saying Reynolds joined him so he didn't have to do it alone.

I was watching the boys warm up in front on me before the game and Fonua looked shot after 5 minutes
He wasn't putting the effort in like the other boys
In saying that it took 4 cowboys to stop him just be for he got 10 in the bin
Looks hard to handle
I don't think he will start until his fitness levels get better
Twal seemed to struggle just walking
Taylor looks good
The cowboys fast men worried us in the last 20
And our goal kicking is still a problem

That would be my guess. As some type of leadership thing...

That sounds more like it. He's a good guy like that.

I highly doubt it's some form punishment...in public?
Poor form if so imo.

Brooks has been busy, not effective imo
Did you watch the first half? probably best on park for the first 20,
I did mate, agree he started well but got worse over time.
I think he was running for the sake of it at times, not even looking outside, and short kicking was a mixed bag.

Only a trial, and the effort is great.
Brooks was pretty average. But in saying that he's an average halfback so can't expect great things from mediocre talent. Kicks the ball dead to often. Can't build pressure with no repeat set, not pinning teams down in there own 10 and giving a free 20 metres and 7 tackles.

Brooks did get a repeat set...must of been a blackout at that stage...gave up 2 7 tackles as did Reynolds...

I guess Thurston and Martin are crap cause the didn't get any and gave up 3 also..

That sounds like Grubs personality always there for a team mate.
