We are too soft.

Post by Bill Tringas » Fri 16 Mar, 2012 9:21 pm

With Payten leaving and Dwyer also not registered, why did Sheens and Humphreys get rid of our tightest defender in Bryce Gibbs and our impact player in Fifita??

They bought Blair who has zero impact in defence or attack.

We are just too too soft.

it doesn't help when you complete 17 of 32 give away 10 penalties and have no possession. it's not on the forwards

Yeah it's everyone, give the opposition too much possession and the defence, which isn't the best, is just put under more pressure.

There appears to be a lack of respect for the opposition, we seem to be playing half-hearted and not putting in at the start of the game. I didn't think we could play worse than the last 2 weeks, but we've managed it.

It's very much an attitude thing, some blokes played their guts out while others defraud the club putting their hand out to be paid this week. There are a few blokes who should be dead set embarrassed by the way they let thier mates and the club down tonight.

Woods was great, Bell and Moors were fantastic when they were on the paddock, Bell was lucky to play 30 minutes and ran for 80 odd metres and made 21 tackles. Poor old Fults worked his ring out and murdered two movements which I chalk down to fatigue. On the upside, Ayshford and Lawrence are starting to sort it out, Lawrence made a fist of what was in front of him and beat a few men on two occasions and Ayshford was breaking tackles. Reddy was stopped in his tracks every carry, excepting the forward pass he scored off. Humble seemed to be silenced in attack, no chiming in around the middle...

Until Galloway is back, Bell must start with Woods.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

Fuerza en la adversidad.

x 2 .. i think groat needs more time back in the 20's and have moors as benchie in his place. miller to half and motzen to fb for mine. humble is a steady player but rarely threatens. bmm ran hard at the line tonight but had limited game time. all teams have bad games through the season, ours was tonight.
I dislike sowfs immensely

Comes down to attitude and execution at the moment. A few of the players have the right attitude, Heighno, Fulton, BBMM, Moors, Ryan, Woods...maybe one or two others. A few look way off the pace though, the left wing is a problem, we are playing without a halfback and fullback, and every attacking play stems off Benji. We miss Lui in attack because of his ballplaying ability. Most of the team just look like going through the motions at the moment. Attitude needs to change quick smart.

I disagree. Sheens isn't making the best choices though.

Again I don't think so. Blair appears overrated. Ellis for instance is underrated.
