RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours

I don’t understand this place.
Our forwards are pathetic with minimal agility, no grunt and lateral movement worse than most grandma’s. Sua, TPJ, Dale all on the market and most here still still prefer our players. Ours aren’t better at all.
Lucy is a big cause of 35% of tries now. Watch games and look at them. Second they draw him midfield within next play or 2 we are always shot & teams score. His hitups are great but come to late, never when the chips are down he roves wide and isolates against the smaller players. He isn’t as good as many say and is a massive reason for us being terrible.
Garner is solid this year but again doesn’t do ground work when we need him.
We have no lock at all. Seyfarth is trying but he is a long way off NRL standard. He gets shrugged to side and often holds down players to get back at marker or his lateral movement mid field misses the tackler (his effectiveness isn’t high).
Twal tries hard but I have never seen a forward as tall & big as him constantly get pushed back, wish he would have some mungrel. With Tamou they are our best forward stop defenders but they don’t push forward. They are required to cover more ground in defense than most props due to our backrowers being ineffective.
The amount of times we struggle to even make 10-20mtrs a set with our forwards hitting up is a deadset joke. How our forwards keep getting dominated in the tackle is a big reason why we are always on the back foot and get carved up out wide as it forces us to cram in and focus more energy running onside than being in position for next set. But hey it’s Brooks who fails us with his kicking game.
We need players who hit hard, who run hard and players who opposition forwards will run to the side of rather than straight up. Players who move up over the advantage line and know what a shoulder is.
At the moment we have very few forwards who can do this.
