I still haven't had a chance to watch the game but, people seem very upset with that win against the premiership favourites

I didn't see ISP,but am disappointed to hear both McQueen and Milne had little impact....I thought Milne was outstanding in RLWC,and was surprised Kev(who has had the best part of a decade to show hes up to NRL standard and invariably fallen short)got the nod.He still made too many errors for mine.
Lawrence(who has also had a large chunk of time to prove himself as a backrower)simply isn't big enough to impact in either attack or defence,great guy that he may be..its time t move on.There are others with same work rate and more impact
So Lawrence hasn’t proven himself - the guy who was our captain yesterday? Sorry, I must be watching another game. He is always solid and works tirelessly. One of the first picked IMHO.
Ivan Cleary seems to like Rowdy for some reason...god knows why..but I think you are close to the mark..

I'm still yet to see the coach who drops Rowdy to reserves... not Sheens, not Potts, not Scarecrow, not IC.

With the game in the balance I wanted Benji to have the ball. Not the halfback...

There will be a thread on Brooks after nearly every game. It’s inevitable, halfback is The most crucial position in the Team and he is bottom few in the league.
Whether we won or not is regardless, it’s his performance that we are talking about, and it is not up to par.
IMHO if Brooks makes it past round 6/7 might as well write off another season.

Agreed.

Some people are watching a different game.

Lawrence did his job.
Its an opinion!

Brooks & Marshall looked ok. Once everything settles down & Liddle returns, they could be a real ace in our team.

I think our halves were better than Easts!

I agree with Tiger Steve about Lawrence, every week he puts in & seldom has a bad game, plus he will make a very good captain.

Brooks’ tackling was excellent. I can’t remember him making so many effective tackles. If he’s to stay in firsts that needs to continue.

Agreed. Also Liddle is a huge positive for our team. Our forwards also got over the top of the Roosters.

Lawrence was good on Saturday. Okay he might not rip the line open in attack but he will make 99% of the tackles he has to make. On the other hand a bloke like Sue might be able to charge through a defensive line but he can miss some real important tackles. At present our defence is no1 priority

Garner on the other hand did stand out. Hammered through the line.

I'm content with Rowdy doing those things if we can open up the other edge. I feel this is where Aloiai can be our best forward and win alot of matches if given the opportunity to own that Right Edge.

Luke Brooks defence with Rowdy along side was good...Just thought I'd mention Luke as this thread is apparently about him...

Previous coaches have tried to hide Brooks in defence out a bit wider and thats where he struggled, as he had to make to decisions. Defending closer in, he basically just has to nail the bloke who is running at him and IMO he has always been able to do that
