Re: Blake Ayshford - very impressed

Agreed. Glad someone else noticed. He seemed to make it his personal mission to mark Dugan and thank goodness he did.

Re: Mitch Brown

I think we must be watching a different Mitch Brown. He is capable and adequate but in no way a long term option. He does not run hard or tackle hard. He is not mistake prone like Beau and Fitzhenry, but he hasn't really been tested yet either. What makes a good fullback? - Solid defense - Confidenc...

Re: sack sheens now

For those who don't understand how it works:

- The players are RESPONSIBLE for the result
- Sheens is ACCOUNTABLE for the result

One finals appearance in 5 years isn't cutting it...and it looks as if now it's going to be a very short run for us in this years finals in any case.

Re: The worst braindead team of all time

Never seen teams throw away games like we do...just unbelievable. That's because we lack the killer instinct. We've done it all year. We get head by 8, 10, 12, 16 - and then we allow the other team to come back. How many games have we won by 30 or 40 points this year? Just the one against the warri...

Re: sack sheens now

Sheens should be sacked. He's had ALL YEAR to blood a good youngster. And when does he do it? In our first finals match in five years. That is stupidity of the highest order. Furthermore, he then limits arguably our best impact forward to the last 8 minutes of the game. There's a word for that: inco...

Re: Forward Passes

Irrelevant. We should never have let them get into that position to win in the first place.

Don't blame the ref. It's weak. Souths were hungrier and played well to win.

Re: Beau Ryan

Daniel Fitzhenry has been having worse performances than that for ages. Beau's performance tonight should guarantee him selection until at least 2035.

Re: CAN WE PLEASE GET RID OF LUI AND RYAN!

Ryan has been pretty fantastic all season and he can be allowed a shocker of a game.

His attitude is right and he will be bounce back from this. No one will be more disappointed about tonight's performance than Beau,

Re: what an utter disgrace.....

Today wasn't a disgrace - we just failed to capitalise on our opportunities. We have been playing like this for a few weeks now and have always manmaged to get out of jail. This time we came up against a team who was hungrier than we were and wanted it more. Sure there were some individual mistakes ...

Re: Here's an idea

Goalkicking costs every single week. It costs us psychologically. Because nearly every single time after score a try, we don't get the extra 2. That extra 2 may put us 2 points in front. Or like in today's case, it should have been 24-20 rather than 24-16. We score one more try and we are back in fr...

Re: The Dead Horse Thread: Marshall isn't a half!

Marshall is not a halfback - agreed. But at fullback...are you serious? He just doesn't have the body for it. Fullbacks need to put their bodies on the line continually, tackle big props etc - Marshall would get smashed. He's a good five eigth. He just needs a halfback outside him. I've love to see ...

Mark Flanagan

When he first came to the club, I didn't see anything notable about Mark Flanagan, but thought it would take him some time to settle in. But it's now round 12, and to be honest, I'm really not seeing it. What does Flanagan actually bring to the table? Is it size? No, he is small Is it speed? No, he'...

Shifting the deckchairs

Some people here tonight will be happy at getting a win. So am I. But don't kid yourselves - like a 50 year old hag layering on the makeup, this win does nothing to deal with the underlying problems we have has a team. Lack of a decent fullback Fitzhenry at fullback? Are we serious? Do you see us wi...
