At the beginning of the year everyone was saying we were a basket case and would run bottom few.
We havent looked that way at all.
We dont look like winning the comp at this stage, but certainly we have shown some good signs and will win our fair share of games.
We beat Manly and Warriors (and timing helped us here) who dont look too bad, and played some very exciting footy in these games. The Warriors caught lightning for a while which happens, but they got it done.
Against Gold Cost we were terrific for the first 20-30, didnt put enough points on, it happens. We again dropped off, we are still very much a developing side.
Parra, we were well off in attack after about the 30 minute mark. But hung in there for most of the game.
I thought the Cronulla game was a very high quality game and a god side beat us. It happens.
We have issue with consistency and we have issues with discipline.
We have also looked at times very good in attack, and have much improved go forward.
Our structure has improved dramatically in defence and attack.
We are playing and placed like a mid table team, which is probably better than where many thought we were at pre season.
Like all teams, injuries and how we fare in the close ones will determine our season.
We are not world beaters by any stretch (yet I see enough talent to think it possibly), but we are not the train wreck many on here are making it out to be either.
