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

Again I don't think so. Blair appears overrated. Ellis for instance is underrated.
That's why we missed Ellis tonight. He isn't over rated but a few I think are.

Tell me they weren't soft tonight mate, come on.

It was embarrassing. I don't mind losing if we put in but that was rubbish out there tonight.

Why is that?
Will they do to the Forumer what they wouldnt do to Hunt and Merrin?

The Tigers may have put up there worst performance in the clubs history , but there is a difference between playing really badly and being soft .

Yep they where strolling through our ruck defence tonite that was obvious. Our forwards also seemed to lack go forward(at times) so sure our forwards need work. But I recon our backs will cut loose when we get the forwards going forward and giving them some quality time in posesion.We also lacked orgonisation in defence sadly particularly our goalline defence

Tim Sheens should be told quite emphatically this week his job is on the line,he has a great squad but he is misusing it badly.
Moltzen is as much a half as I am a an astronaut,Humble needs to be closer to the action and someone else at the back,Reddy maybe.
Sheens has Groat at starting prop when he he clearly isn't ready,Bell would do a better job,other players need a rocket,and Tim you need a game plan.
Go hard or go home

i wouldnt .
As i said , I will give my opinion after i watch the game tomorrow but calling the team soft is ridiculous and to the guys who have played the game have you ever turned your toes up ever and waved the white flag

To make it at this level you have to go through incredible pain ,training etc to make it Ask any player in top grade if pre season training or playing games is harder

If these guys can make it through pre season training without throwing in the towel they can play 80 getting beaten badly

Playing badly and being soft is different And if Sheens reckon they are soft they won't be there next week He likes to see people working hard as we have seen with Tedesco and the likes Many of you are extremely disappointed and we all have the right to but in the cold hard light of the folowing days you will realize we played badly and we will hit back exactly like the Saints did from last week

We released 2 front rowers from last season and we had a third one retire. We brought in a decent veteran prop but that's it, we only have 2 props with 50 games to their name, one is injured. As good as Woods and Groat may be, they should not be starting games together, I think Bell should be in the run on side while Galloway is out. Is there any other team out there who's starting props have about 40 first grade games between them? I was thinking using the salary cap space Ellis freed up for DCE, but now I think we need an enforcer or two.
