Austin carved us up today and he can't even get a NRL contract.

Gamble is a Gamble and we are now bankrupt.

Killa got injured and everyone else threw in the towel because they knew Taylor was back at 9.
Everyone can see Brooks cant stand his crappy service hes blown up on him like 3 times which is a big deal from Luke as hes pretty damn quiet...

Of course its gonna be a game changing moment the whole team would have dropped their heads
The game changing moment was when your "Killa" was marvelling at his opposite instead of lining up the player that he was supposed to tackle. You know, the try that got them back in the game when down a player and not long after his very crappy pass to Brooks up the other end. Much prefer a poor Godinet if Liddle is not playing.
Thank God. I was getting really worried that everyone here had decided McIlwrick was some kind of saviour. The guy is legit hopeless.

Brooks wants Liddle as his 9. You can see it on the field. Liddle should be 9 whenever he is fit.

I'm not banking on him. I am saying that he needs to be given an extended run of games to see how he goes.

Farah is a one year proposition at best. Lichaa is awful. We have to at least try to invest in Liddle unless there is some off contract saviour hooker we can sign.

Every time he’s given a chance at an extended run, he gets injured.

He has been right to go the past two weeks though. And you're the one complaining that we're picking Taylor. Do you prefer McIlwrick and Godinet to Liddle? Because I'm pretty sure I saw McIlwrick limping up the tunnel today so all things being equal?

Like most have said in here now, our number 9 is a real problem at the moment. Once Taylor went to dummy half we got slow crappy service and couldn't get on the front foot. We need a proper number 9 who can go 80 mins, give us good ball out of dummy half, someone who can pull off 30-40 tackles a game, and someone who will dart out and take on the line every now and then.

We were on top of Canberra whilst they had Havilli out there, and soon as Hodgson come on, their direction changed and he had our defence 2nd guessing what he was going to do. Their halves also got better service out of dummy half and then their forwards and backline ran all over us.

We're also missing a good defensive back rower, a hard running 2nd rower who can punch holes in the defence, another prop for our rotation, and a hard running centre.

Finally i have worked it out about Masters .. he is not a centre .. a centre is one who runs on to the ball at full speed and tries to carve his way through the backline .. Marsters on the other hand gets the ball, dances around a little then tries to run over the top of the defence then tries to off load the ball. He would do better gaining a few kilos and going into the back rower and become an out wide edge running forward.

We have some work to do .. yes Mybe will give some experience and little "X" factor. He isn't going to become our saviour. Maybe we do need Robbie Farah back for the rest of this season only, a calm head out there steering the ship around the paddock would help. At least he'll give some good ball out of dummy half. Cleary will need to sit down and have a good hard look at the squad for the remaining half of the season.

Soz mate but I don't agree about Marsters. He's been a revelation for us and he plays like Leilua/Hodges or for a lesser comparison Shaun Kenny-Dowall. Not all centres are hole runners. He's the type that goes looking for the ball and creates opportunities for others. Generally they are actually better than the run of the mill types. I wouldn't trade him for Dale Copley that's for sure.

Not to say he can't play in the backrow, I fully believe he can and probably will many times in his career. But he's doing a hell of a job at centre and is one of the first picked imo.

How do you train out stupid actions and I'll discipline?
Extended stint in reserve grade....
As McIlwrick and Gamble showed, reserve grade isn't bulging with star replacements.

I don't care about whose fault this debacle was. All I know is that my wife and I drove down from the Hunter Valley to sit in the freezing cold and what we got was a bunch of gutless wonders parading around pretending to be footballers. It obviously was just a bunch of blokes impersonating the real Wests Tigers because I know the real Wests Tigers aren't a bunch of (self deleted) who run away whenever a Raider's player comes near.

Five hours on the road for this and I don't even care about winning and losing but this was just sickening and for the first time in more than 50 years we left early, as did the majority of the 10,000 spectators (not enough to call it a crowd).

We looked good for the first 15 minutes when we had a specialist 9. KILLA drew a smart penalty out of dummy half, then laid on a nice pass for Rowdy to score. Then he gets injured, and Hodgson came on for them. The momentum shift came through the affect the number 9’s had on both teams.
True that.
Its a big position and something we need to have fully covered before next preseason
That means Jacob and a decent back up

I put that one on Cleary.

It's been coming. He's the one insisting on Taylor at 9. It all starts from there.
Its an opinion!
