As someone who sticks up for him I should also state that Utai is okay on the bench but Brown isn't. Liam is a gun player in certain situations. Those situations are never when we need metres in our own half.

I think we didn't play a top team and you can get away with that sort of stuff.

To be fair all the muppets on here that would choose McKinnon over Moltzen are 100 times worse than Sheens. If the statue was chosen I reckon we lose that game. Moltzen saves a critical try. If the statue was there the roosters score and it is a different game.

I am basically agreeing with you however it should be qualified that a lot of posters on here if they were choosing the team would have lost us the game or at a minimum put us in a much worse situation.
Talking crap again....1 regulation try saving tackle and 38 meters with the ball in hand does not make you a great fullback.

I think the problem was Mitch Brown. I can understand Utai because I feel he can be used a semi-forward anyway, while still covering the backs in case of injury.

But Brown as well?

That was a head-scratcher.

Might be more about leaving someone out, rather than who he put in- leaving Fifita out means that Sheens has put a line through him perhaps?

Brown should be at fullback, problem solved.

We won't get away with that bench against Manly next week. think about it though we played a 3 man bench really... he only has that extra player there in case of a injury

The selections were smart.. People seem to have forgotten that last night was the 1st game back for a long time for Utai and Lote, and only the 3rd game back for Lawrence.. What would of happened if 1, 2 or even the 3 of them had of aggravated their injuries?? I tell u what would of happened, u would all be whinging about how sheens stuffed up the selections by not covering these guys - oh wait, there's whinging any way!! Good selections Tim against a lesser side.. Now that they have a game under their belt and have come out of it injury free, now gives u more options for our run into the finals..

Don't be using logic and sense around here mate, it's not acceptable.

I was surprised as anyone when Bryan moved into the back row, but I figured Sheens was favouring some mobility in the slippery conditions, and Beau ended up showing some ticker, so good on him. I'll save my gripes for losses.

Happy with the win, the boys all put in and the completion rate was exceptional. That said, we won in spite of the bench not because of it.

What would of happened if we went to Golden point? Im just glad they called that roosters pass forward....if the refs got that right we're going to golden point at 18-18......our forwards, our REAL ones were buggered at 70 mins even with a penalty count heavily weighed in our favour.....I wouldnt have fancied our chances in GP...took us 3 goes to slot a 1 pointer in reg. time
In reality it shouldve been a 1 point win to us....Sheens labelled it our best win of the year

Tigers coach Sheens said his side's performance was their best of the season but warned the players not to start believing their own hype.

"We won on the back of some very good completed sets, the best we have had all year," Sheens said.

Ba ha ha ha.

Moltzen is the worst fullback in the competition.

The highlight reel is one tackle, a good one. The reel doesn't show his feet meekly planted on the ground wishing he could dissapear into the turf on every bomb or leaving the shortest guy on the field to jump for it while he was scratching his backside.

Back on the actual topic the bench was a terrible choice. Utai showed what he offers to start the sets off and Beau should probably have filled the bench spot.

The lack of Fifita was a masterstroke though and I thought it gave Woods a chance to really work and prove his mettle.

Payten adds so much to our play but we need an extra go forward man

We won so its no big deal. I personality wouldnt have the same bench on Friday night against Manly. But we won and Sheens has 20 more years experience then all of us so I dont have a problem with it.
