Agree , Avaro and the 2nd Rowers matched it with a good young Broncos pack.
Really?
The Eels easily have the worst pack in the comp.
There would be lucky to be 3 quality players - and none who are consistent.
They matched it with Brisbane for about 20 minutes out of 80 when they all, suddenly, decided to play at the same time.
The Broncos took them on through the middle and steamrolled them.... and the same people who are always telling everybody a halfback depends on his forwards blames the halfback.....again.
On another note the injury to James Roberts might be a blessing for NSW - pretty sure they were looking at him and Mitchell.
Roberts only seems to want to get involved when he feels like it and is lazy in defence.
IMO you can't have both him and Latrell.

I think you might find that if Tedesco is fullback Tom Trbojevic may have been in the centres , he started their when he first came into grade as well as on the wing

Moses at present is a terrible no7. He show cases every pass with his show pony exaggerated style. His kicking game is poor at best and seems to continue to use the same low lob bomb as his 5th tackle option when on attack that even a blind man could defuse. He plays so deep in attack it makes taking on the line near impossible, so its just sweep after sweep. Than there is his defence, that has never been a strong suit, but seems to have gone backwards in 2018.

He needs a real good mentor or find another sport to play

The big thing will be to see how many of these players will cope with SOO as well

They could have 3-4 debutants at this level (De Belin ,Hunt ,McInnes and Sims ) , fatigue might play its part , especially with so many at once

Moses was penalised for an incident involving Broncos Jordan Kahu in the 14th minute of the clash, attracting a Grade 1 High Tackle – Careless offence.

The base penalty for the charge is a $1,500 fine, but can be reduced to $1,100 with an early guilty plea.

Yep. And we play them the week after SOO 3 which is not bad timing.

They would be praying Widdop doesn't go down. His kicking game is 2nd to none and they would be lucky to scrape into the 8 if his season ended this weekend or next IMO. Hunt is getting wraps because of the play of Widdop so far.

Latrell is a carbon copy of Roberts, if they both had an 80 minutes when they were "on" it would be scintillating to watch. However if they are both lazy and disinterested it would be a cricket score to QLD, neither of those 2 can defend to save themselves.

Yep Euan Aitken should be in the centres with Mitchell (he offers more than Roberts). Put Trbojevic at fullback where he belongs, not shoved out on the wing waiting for the ball to come his way occasionally- a waste of talent.

Stuff Tedesco, he’s not playing well enough to keep his spot. It’s already bad enough that Cordner is going to be included, don’t really need any more out of form Roosters being selected purely because they play for the Roosters.

The other bloke who continues to impress me for Parra is Terepo

Plays big minutes and runs as hard with his last hit up as he does with his first and off contract was well
I seem to remember us being linked to him in the past. It wouldn't surprise me if he turned out to be the extra prop we sign for 2019 (just a feeling).

Teddy played his best footy with Farah and Brooks. He needs players to set him up. Cook could be good for Teddy at SOO.
