Doesn't really put fear into the opposition, Does it?

I think this is where the prob is..
Storms have Paps, Coates, Olam, and Munster and Hughes are both genuine try threats too. Harry and BS also very dangerous. Chuck in a couple of ‘decent’ backs in Reimis and Meaney.

Repeat similar lists for the better teams. That’s why they can score 50-70 and were flat out hitting 20.

1. Laurie
2. Nofoaluma
3. Doueihi
4. To'a
5. Maumalo

if Doueihi ends up playing from the bench or otherwise I'd be playing Kepaoa in the centres. he can play.

That sack of crap Aloiai is back tonight as well.

I hope honest to god Seyfarth knocks that vapid bible thumping hypocrite out faster than Gallen threatened to.

Agree, I cant watch or listen to Phil Guild any more.

I feel he is self serving and not honest.
Probably Gould has plans to push Trent Barrett toward the exit door and bring in his old Penrith connection with Cameron z Ciraldo - maybe we should strike first?

We have plenty of strike. With our best 1 to 5 out we scored 4 and had 3 disallowed playing with 15.

Even Gildart made 3 line breaks.

Only the officials have more strike.

I think our team is incapable of being a well rounded footy side.
We've been complaining about our soft D for years now, not capable to restrict opposition to a try a half.
So we get a hard nose retired forward in to help and you have to agree the change in our D, particularly in the red zone has been at times awesome......NOW WE HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO ATTACK!
A lot of the inability to score has to attributed to a decimated backline.
No excuse though at club level.
We've got ourselves into another pickle.
We don't have players ready and waiting to take up their chance, to step up from KOE, or do we....not seeing it.
Our union convert was hailed at start of the year to step up...nah.
Logan Dillon, what did he do to upset things. He would have come in for a cameo 1-2 games for Laurie.
At the start if each year we have to be in a position to blood new players, are they there?
If so who and why aren't they used.
Top teams seem to have a handle on these sort if things.
We are going to have to get this sorted out before next years assault otherwise it will be 9th again.
