Why do we continue to play Naiqama? He offers nothing at all.
Are you watching the this game or another one?
Yep, he’s been one of the best on ground, and while that might not say much, they have been targeting the left edge.
Tigers for 2022!

I tend not to worry about trial form but my concern with tonight is that we look like a side that makes the same old mistakes.

Biggest concern is dummy half. Matt's really struggling at the moment. His service really puts players under pressure.

It's a trial. Cronulla look good. I don't think I'd write the whole season off on what happened in that 40
Hope your right. That half looked like the same stuff we have been watching the past couple of years. Thought these guys were competing to make the side?

Suppose they have everything to play for in the 2nd half?

They don't seem to be as unified as a team like last week. Although maybe the pressure from the sharks has a bit to do with that

Hopefully a wake-up call we needed.

Brooks is not receiving good ball by any stretch of the imagination.
When we are being smacked 20 nil and many want to blame the 1/2 back?

Definitely watching the same game you are. He simply does nothing to spark the attack and is usually non-existent in defence. Now I know the issue is the RHS, but the fact this bloke still manages to start after 3 years of poor performances is a joke. He should be in England by now. We can't continue to play these second rate players and expect results. MWZ, Nofoaluma and Naiqama consistently being selected in the top side after strings of poor performances really has me confused as to the extent of Tui's situation and the way he was so suddenly dropped after a decent performance last week. I think the whole "bus" cliche has gotten to IC's head TBH.

Naiqama, Rowdy, Rocco, Reynolds, Matulino, MWZ all went ok.

Otherwise it might be 50.

Im glad the NRL are cleaning up the ptb but are we really going to see 6 penalties a game for incorrect ptb?
The season hasn't even started and i can already see this is going to be a big problem.

It's really boring
We've almost had 6 PTB penalties this half against us alone. It's simply outrageous

No they think they've made the side and have put their feet up. I just hope it's because Ronnie has been smashing them and they need to taper off

Like i said last week, you can't even count the Cowboys trial as a trial, they continually handed us the ball.
This is a different story, it's amazing what happens when you play a team that is in control, we look like high school kids.

I understand it's a trial, but we're way off in every aspect of the game.

In fairness the sharks are really playing there best team excluding Gallen.... obviously that was a poor 40 but Cronulla are solid and we’ve just been flat footed, I expect a big 2nd half

Negatives

Brooks has been poor regardless of the service.

Our service has been shocking

Our edge defence also looks poor

We look so lost when we come up to attacking position, as I’ve stated we lack that X factor in attack and I can’t see how we’re gonna score tbh

Positives

Corey Thompson imo should be fullback come round 1, playing a good game

Ben Matalino looks like he’ll be a good asset for the upcoming season.

Esan masters attack on the ball is so dominant
