Ha ha; Farah killed him eh?? Farah deserved the 3 points, 2 points and the 1 point. He was so far and away our best player it is mind boggling. And yet you single him out for criticism. Bizarre.
funny we have not won a game since farah has come back and our attack has dropped significantly. hes a hog.. ill say it again farah ball kills our halves...

I expect Brooks and Moses to be here next year, they will take up their options. No one will match the rumoured money we are offering for next year. Not on this form.... Oh well

You forgot about Trent Hodgkinson playing roller derby to take Teddy out under the posts. At worst that should have been a penalty in front of goals.

Well the team conceded 6 and the count was around 4-1 when he came on so you might want to check that info. Siro was ok and didn't play long minutes today. He had a few good moments and has one of the stronger first contacts in the team.

Brooks was horrible in every facet today and it had nothing to do with Farah. Milone was shocking. Forget the last drop or the pass over the sideline, that lack of effort to get back for the Uate try was the most unspirited efforts I've seen in a WT jersey. He should be deregistered for that lack of effort alone.

we have 2 top shelf players ... 2 or 3 Half decent players and the rest are totally useless... On the Coach either he can't coach or the players are not listening to him... If it's the latter he should drop them to NSWcup to send a message through the team... But I bet next week we see the same 17 barring injury

Brooks is a huge disappointment. Something is not right with him or we have all been sold a pup. I have visions of him being a sensation somewhere where the forwards dominate and make some time and space for him. But, it's not here and it's not now.

By contrast, I don't understand the criticism of Rankin. He is a halves player filling in a spot on the wing and doing a decent job. Short term I would punt Brooks, and move Rankin to the halves.

Longer term I would punt Brooks and throw everything we can at Lachlan Coote to play 6 and have Moses as 7.

I wouldn't say he was our best but he was good.

Farah is a hog and he comes up with dumb plays consistently but he did nothing to stuff up our halves. They had plenty of chances and Moses had a really good game.

Brooks was just terrible though.

Have to say i think we would look a lot better with Moses at 7 and Rankin at his natural 6.

I know I said this in the live game thread, but I would like to see how he goes with Balin

The problem with Brooks is simple : is is not sleeping enough... He goes to bed every night and starts to count his future money, by the time he gets to 800k it's morning...

How much does this kid want??. Who writes our bloody contracts?.If the player is doing well he has an option to leave but if his not we are stuck with them. The option only works in there favour......a BIG WOW...

2 very costly handling errors in the first half. That one after the long break was a massive momentum shifter. Simple pass terrible drop. Quality players can't drop those passes.

Surely Taylor in his right would drop players after today's dismal effort?

The club won't have the sense to let him go. In fact, they'll be willing to pay overs for him.

Brooks is a dud. Simple. HE can take that other dud Sironen with him. The sooner the better.

Does the option have a dollar amount attached to it?
