Replacing a fullback with a hooker



  • What was the deal? Is Mbye’s injury that bad he couldn’t have come in? If so, why was he named in the 21 to begin with. Having both Farah and grub on the bench was a recipe for disaster.



  • We were never gonna win. But that call was God awful

    As soon as Thompson was ruled out it was game set and match…although I would have put Nofo to FB and momo to wing and brought in Talau at centre…kept bench as is



  • I joked in the live game thread that maybe Robbie was the only reserve who brought his gear. Though, thinking about it, it seems like the most logical answer.

    Simple, Talau should have come in, Nofo to fullback and Momo to the wing.



  • Painted ourselves into a corner on the back of a forced late change. Giving youth a chance and more than two bench forwards was my preference

    Mbye was removed from the 21 on Saturday.

    You can only use one from the 19 after that.

    Thompson’s injury meant Robbie or Talau.

    Mbye was not eligible.

    Thompson would have been a first choice call up from Reserve Grade to replace an injured first grader in years gone by. Now his absence is viewed as indispensable. So how far we have fallen!

    This is what comes of not retaining your best talent (Papenhuyzen) and please don’t come with the blame Tedesco excuse. Poor retention by our club and we see the results today. Let’s hope those in power realise their mistake and get Papenhuyzen back plus sign an almighty roster of outstanding young talent for next year.

    Would never blame tedesco for paps leaving. Paps left because he wanted to leave. he had an offer from the tigers and the storm both about the same and he chose the storm. One person is to blame for him leaving and that is the person who signed the contract. Ie the player himself.



  • Once Thompson was ruled out the writing was on the wall for Maguire. Replacing Thompson with Momirovski was a lose lose for defence and attack, after that might as well give Robbie a run.



  • I blame toddles
