What’s frustrating is that this stuff happens almost every game. There is always a big weakness, whether it’s the Right, the left or the middle. It’s either too many dropped balls or too many penalties or too many missed tackle. And we always self-implode. Always inconsistent
couple of questionable decisions, don’t know much about him but he seemed a little out of place on the wing. Is he usually a fullback or centre or wing?
in saying that, he doesn’t look out of place in first grade. knew exactly what to do to poke his nose through and get a quick PTB every time. safe handling , not afraid of the contact and solid contact in defense.
positioning needs work but i think he seemed more of a centre than wing
if reynolds escapes suspension, brooks on the bench for me.
the reason the coaching staff don’t drop is because he’s a confidence player but seriously enough is enough. He needs to make a decision in life if being an nrl halfback is for him. he is courageous but most of the time lacks the skills and the smarts
two reasons it won’t be changed:
- lack of options: brooks, not cutting it as a player or a leader, benji/lawrence in and out of side. We literally have no leaders.
- he was maguire’s first major decision when he became coach- it would be a big ego hit for him to accept his first major decision was a flop a year in.
