Isn’t this what trials are for to test combinations why panic when we have not started the competition proper as I am sure the Cowboys did not slit their wrists last week

To his detriment Reynolds was trying to win the game by himself tonight. He was much more composed last week. Ivan just needs to tell him to chill and revert back to a composed performance - its a team game. Defence will be the key to our season.

Thompson was fantastic?

Lawrence has again shown that he is a 'has been' (for last 5-6 years and counting :(), Sue, Chee-Kam, Taylor and Aloiai and even Rochow are much better option.
Or will it be, he must be in the team because he is the best captain ? (like Mark Taylor, at the end of his carrier) :bash
But Lawrence is a really nice guy !

Fonua has not impressed me so far - hopefully he will get better.

The halves were ok once McIlwrick was off the field. Godinet has to be the DH until Liddle returns.

Aloiai was good, don't know what feed you were watching Harv, maybe the Penrith game
Matulino was one of our best.

Thompson was good, so was Rowdy, Kev, MWZ, Rocco, Masters (at times), Packer needed the run, McQueen, Lolo and Gamble were not on the field long enough.

All in all a bit to work on in the next few weeks before we towel up the Rorters.

First game he's played this year. Bloke must be 120 kegs plus. Give him a chance...

Don't let dislike or stubbornness get in the way of good judgement mate.

Better second half but we looked down on intensity versus Cronulla who looked like they treated it more like a round 1 game so we can't worry too much.

Two things for me on top of other comments already made.
1) If Brooks dosent lift for 80 it maybe that Marshall and Reynolds are our halves.

2) Numerous times our forwards who played strong after good meters we're in position for offload but no support. This needs remedy and is where our attack can develop.

Our go forward was bad, no quick play the ball, and our 2nd raw was dominated by the opponents.
All in all, disappointing effort so far :oops:
Reading through the thread, having only caught the last fifteen minutes of the game. To this point this post finally gives me an idea of how the game is playing out and some reasons why our half may not have been the best player on the field in the first half.

not sold on reynolds, he looks very ordinary.
He looks.like he.has a.million things going on in his.mind and hes.trying to.act on every one of them.
Needs to calm down a bit
i don't think that that will change at this stage of his career.
It should'nt be a surprise to any one.
We got exactly what he is

So disappointing...
Think I'll concentrate on Aloiai and Thompson as they were our only quality players that I saw.
Otherwise we looked clunky and slow. And same old same old with some players (Lawrence, Brooks, Macca)
You know the team is going ordinary when Rochow stands out for doing qty... trouble is we need quality.

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?
Missed most of the match except the end, yet have had the same thoughts from just reading this thread of the first half.
