I think the smaller, more mobile 2nd rowers like Garner that find themselves stuck between centre and 2nd row are ideal for one of the bench spots. They are more likely to find space at the end of a game when the defence is tired and they can cover centre, 2nd row or lock if there is an injury.

I would much rather have Garner than MCK on the bench or starting 2nd row to cover injury or suspension.

@izotope said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

THE_POM said few weeks ago no discussion about halves (cept for some sharks schmuck)

I am assuming the schmuck is Brayden Trindall who was pretty good in the halves when Johnson and Towsend were out. Overplayed his hand last week at hooker though, certainly not lacking in confidence.

When you are lining up a q kick for 8 point lead …is the licker thinling about the tams ethos

The forum should chip in to buy @happy_tiger a full sized keyboard to plug into his new phone.

@Kazoo-Kid said in Matterson free to play, Douehi to miss a week:

I’ll never forget Billy Slater’s shoulder charge.

Doueihi’s one was pretty similar to the one where Slater got off so he could play in his 5th Grand Final.

What a joke, Madge should select Doueihi for New Zealand so he can serve his ban 😁

@rustycage said in A Rugby League record to the WT:

The argument that a team has to somehow hit the lowest possible point before they can improve is so ridiculous it’s stupid.

And the “fans” that demand everyone be sacked each time there is a loss put pressure on the people trying to make long term improvements.

Maybe we need a spoon …rock bottom might finally get the reaction from the club that the fans have screamed out for and deserve

DOWNVOTE! (why do we only get 10 per day?)

Most people think the clubs current approach to improving is excellent, doing anything more drastic would just add years on to any recovery from the last set of panicked mistakes.

@nrlsurvivor said in Your Team Vs 2021 Rd 1:

I don’t think we should give up on Twal too easily. I assume he’s been playing injured. A good offseason and I suspect we’ll get the ol’ Twally back.

Twal averaged 107 meters per game in 2019
First 5 games of 2020 he averaged 124
Last 6 after he came back from injury 88

He used to make a lot of runs and was our best defender, I am also assuming he has not fully recovered from an injury.

@Goanna57 said in My 2 cents on the Result:

So they have improved more than us and the way you are summing up the titans proves my point so i don’t think my assumption is wrong.Us 5% them 10%

It was an example of how you can improve but be lower on the ladder, I also said “I AM NOT SAYING THAT THIS HAPPENED”

I said they showed some improvement in a different period of the year.

@ElleryHanley said in Brooks: What exactly has gone wrong?:

Looked much better past two games he played. I also think AD will really suit Brooks.

Maybe there is hope…fingers crossed…

But the peeps will accuse Doohey of stifling Brooks’s play …

DOWNVOTE! (I ran out)
