Potter has retained the same starting squad used against the club’s season-opener against St. George Illawarra Dragons last weekend, and spoke of his desire to see a strong improvement across the board from the Round 1 loss.
“We presented [the Dragons] with too many opportunities, and we gave away some silly penalties,” he said. “It was disappointing for us – we need to work on being better defensively and we need to work on being better with our last plays. Our finishes to our sets were poor… we need to get that right.”
Experienced playmaker Braith Anasta will feature alongside young halfback Luke Brooks once more, with Potter throwing his support behind the duo after a poor showing in parts in last weekend’s match.
“They know that they didn’t kick the ball well; they know that, overall, they did some good things early and deteriorated from there,” he said. “Both of them need to left their game, and they want to.”
“They want to do better for the team and I know that they can.”
Potter has named an extended 19-man bench for the match, with Keith Galloway and David Nofoaluma named as 18th and 19th man.
are they going to stick to the supposed game plan this week?? Surely if they don’t, Potter can’t roll out with the same side in round 3.
If Galloway,Nofo and Simona arn’t good to go this week then they will be next week surely.
yeah I’d hope so, my concern though is the halves or more importantly, Anasta.
He’s not the future and if he doesn’t pull his head out of his … and let Brooks run the side, then he needs to go.
That was a very poor last 60 minute performance by the vast majority of the side. Hopefully we’ll see a consistent 80 minute performance this week. Completions with the ball with good last tackle options looking to create pressure. And a better attitude in defense.
