We need a pack leader, an experienced head in the forwards that can inspire the others. Proctor has the years, does he have the inspirational presence? Wasn’t he also busted for doing coke?
He was captain of Titans a good while. I think he has good leadership qualities which is something Madge is very big on. He also has big game experience
I don’t rate him myself. I respect your opinion, Josh, but I don’t see him making a huge difference to this side.
A mongrel prop, on the other hand that consistently runs for over 100m a game would certainly make a difference, however. I wonder where we can get one of those.
Maguire is clearly not satisfied with the inconsistent crap this team dishes up.
Good on him. This club needs a stern coach who will not accept this continual ‘good one week, crap the next two’ mentality. If some players are not up for it, then they need to move on or be moved on.
I for one am totally supportive of this current coach.
I actually think this is one of the most important matches of the season for us. We need to win this. Our wins this year have been against the bottom feeders. We need to notch a win against a top 4 team.
We’re a middle of the road team. What do you expect
I don’t ‘expect’ anything. Just calling it as I see it. If we are serious final 8 contenders, we need to win some games against the better teams.
Nofo isn’t without his deficiencies, he knows this and it’s obvious Madge does because since dropping Benji and shifting Garner to the right side in attack and D, our structure has improved noticeably and Nofo in particular is benefiting from it.
Agree. Gotta give the coach credit for this. Couldn’t have been easy dropping Marshall.
The Penrith game will be interesting. One advantage we have over them is that they concede more “6 agains” than any other team. Should allow us to build some pressure in attack. And we have shown we can ask a lot of questions of the opposition defence with the ball in hand. We will need to - Penrith’s defence is first rate.
I don’t see us winning this one, but I look forward to seeing if we are at least competitive.
Glad he’s no anti vaxxer
Everyone hates big pharma until they get a headache or cancer.
What have headaches, cancer and pain killers got to do with vaccinations? Have you guys actually seen the crap that goes in to some vaccinations?
