Farah tried, Woods tried, Koro did ok but is still on a learning curve, needs to improve his handling. Nofoaluma was good and showed he is up to FG. Tedesco was also good and I thought Ava had good go forward off the bench.

Woods, Tedesco, Robbie and Fulton...as for the rest, not up to it, through inexperience, lack of passion or laziness, take your pick...

From what I saw Nofu for sure , Tedesco was good under the circumstances and Fulton that's it .
Can I add that I think Korribette is not a 1st grader at the present moment has way to many errors in his game and can't read the line of defence (I know we have a lot of injuries)

I think that is about where it ends. Buchanan put in as well. Woods may have played his way out of an origin spot. Reddy was alright.

yay, i thought i might be alone but I thought benji had a good game. More of that please!

For mine: Benji, Tedesco, Nofo, Ava, Koro (bar that handling error), Fults and NOT woods or farah surprsingly. I know the 8 and 9 are capable of much better so I dont think they can hold their heads high. 100m from woods and Farah with 20 tackles (blair beat him).

Fulton, Woods, Farah, Tedesco and Noffa. No one else. Korro - who I like - has got to cut the stupid mistakes out of his game.

Fitzy tried his guts out every game too... The problem with Fulton is, regardless how hard he plays, he is still in-effective. At some stage, we need to move him on if we wont to become a strong team across the park...

Buchanan is my pick to hold his head up.

Unfortunately Woods may have lost the NSW jersey after tonights performance

Teddy and maybe Noafoluma on debut

thought the same Happy... Woods and Merritt both played themselves out of a blue jumper tonight.

I'd still take Woods if I was Daley as the 18th man at least!

Agree. Souths showed where the game is heading tonight. We need more size, strength and speed across the park.

Our back 3 are solid and will get better. We need a couple of strike centres. Lawrence in 2010 would have been great, now...not so much. Not sure about the halves situation at the moment. Brooks and Moses are the future, but they're not ready yet. If Benji can get himself back into form we'll be better off, but he needs to do more of what he did tonight - play more direct, take the line on and pick up some hard runners with soft passes.

Our forwards lack grunt and size. Woods and Galloway up front are fine. We need some grunt off the bench to keep things rolling forward though. Ava looks ok, Buchanan has a good motor but needs another offseason to gain more size and strength. Groat could be ok next season, or possibly this season if he continues to gain match fitness and improve.

Our backrow is shocking. BMM is big enough but is too lazy and not being used effectively at the moment. Blair, Thompson, Pettybourne, Fulton...There's just not enough size and impact among them. Sue is more of a backrower than front rower and he shows good promise, but we need more size there. Mr T could be one option, although I wouldn't mind seeing him used out wide on the wing or in the centres even, although Nofoaluma may very well be a better centre than winger so swapping them around may work.

This season is a write off though I'm afraid.
