Go forward disappointing

A win is a win,& to be celebrated at this stage of the season,but am sure other top 8 contenders wld have noticed our surprising lack of penetration by our forwards for most of the match(Ellis excepted).
Little wonder Sheens made 3 early substitutes
Worse still,the big Easts forwards seem to break the first tackle at will until they tired.

Manly were flat as well, so I will say it was the Monday Night Game that is the reason for this.

If you saw Easts game last wek against the Knights their forwards were brilliant, so you knew to expect that today.

Jeez,both teams have had 6 days to recover.
In manlys case,I think it was just sheer arrogance…

manly and wests were both flat ….it was a tough game both physically and mentally…
ill take an ugly win every week over a gorgeous loss…

Chris Heighington’s attacking impact is embarresingly poor. I mean that. It is amongst the worst I have seen in the NRL. The bloke was once a kamakazi now he has nothing.

if you had to pick rhino or payne who would you have in the trenches?
id have rhino every day of the week imo ……

i thought the 10 was very skinny and it killed both teams in attack … hence the 17- 10 scoreline …

Good point.

But Chris goes backwards sometimes. He was owned big time by the Roosters pack today.

Heighno and Skando were our only forwards to make over 100mt and both came off the bench very embarrising 😒

I’d swap Payten and Galloway. We need more go forward in our starting line up, Galloway will provide that.

could it also be the style sheensie has him playing …he is always getting the ball close to the ruck or after its turned back into the ruck …look at bronson when he is wider …

But we dont need either of them.

Heighno’s metres would be close to being in the minus today he got driven back so much 😒

112 metres do you think the stats are wrong?

NRL.COM stats are often wrong, not saying its so now but his numbers are surprising, that said, there was a definite momentum shift in our favour when our benchies came on
