Front row and right side

Post by king sirro » Sun 15 May, 2016 5:35 pm

Wow how bad.

Grant, Ava and Woods soft sofft soft soft SOFT.

Naqaima was embarrassing.

Put him at fullback until Teddy returns then reserve grade.

Nofo was dirt too. Give him a week with MCK and then decide if he can defend ar NRL level.

I agree with the right side and Kev...he needs a rest..

I think Grant has been good...Woods and Ava have been poor today..

Sue is a massive out for us...
Wayne Train 2019..

Woods has always been soft. Serial flopper, no line speed, 3 man in to a tackle.
Nofo is the worst defensive winger in the comp. The amount of tries that come from his bad reads would make for alarming reading.
I have to say though that i think Ava has been half decent tonight. His go forward has been good.
Moses and Brooks once again are not willing to move us around the field and get us in position to make attacking plays. Putting a kick behind is a play reserved for attackers that have no other ideas.

Ava was good. Woods wasn't bad. He makes metres and can ball play. I think it's the coach. We have no attacking plays and it's the defensive reads that are killing us.

Ava was our best forward, always hit the line hard. It's our back row apart from Lawrence that offer nothing. Doesn't help losing Farah, Aloiai and Sue before kick off.

Nofoluma was shockingly positioned almost the whole match; and that is a continuation of him being out of position time and again this season.

I thought Ava was OK and Woods not bad for first game back.

I think half the problem is that we compress our defence because we are so soft up the middle.

I thought the first 20 minutes Ava was non existant and Grant got dominated.

Woods came on and got involved but was soft.

Even with Hints coathanger tackle, James Grahamwas carrying on like the gurb he is and Woods dod nothing. Im so sick of the Tigers having weak players. Have a go. Woods should have got in Grahams face and put him in his place.

We have no mongrel, no grub and no heart.

The forwards were embarrassing, it's as simple as that. No team wins games only 30m per set. It was men against boys. Can't remember the last time i watched a game where the battle in the middle was so lopsided.

Woods needs to change his tactics .
Standing up in the tackle without an offload is killing us . The opposition has enough time to reset their line every time .
Our forwards are soft , very rarely do they dominate the tackle .
Most of the time we still have 2 players rolling out of the tackle when the ball has been dispatched by the opposition dummy half .
We need more MONGREL !
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

Mongrel? Well we need to sign players outside this club then. We dont have one single player with mongrel.

Sign Greg Bird and another grub ASAP

I thought Nofa was made to look worse by Kevvy. His poor reads left Nofa stranded and he had little choice but to run in.

Yeh i lean toward your thinking Coopy. I think Nofo was a victim of Kev tonight.

Big fan of kevin, but we cant have that decision making out wide again.

Seumanufagai had very good game, 144 m from 15 runs, 27 T and 1 MT.
Woods had solid game 141 m 37 T and 0 MT, not bad for his first game after injury.
However, Grant, Lawrence, and especially Sironen had very quit game. Sironen run only 44 m ??
It did not help that we lost Sue, Aloiai and Farah for most of the game.
Hunt was solid.
Our biggest problem in defence is our rh side, Nofoaluma and Naiqama are awful in defence, while tackling was acceptable, their positional playing and reading of the game was awful, they made mistake nearly every time the ball went their way :(
It did not help, that we (again) did not choose the best players, and it is hard to understand selection of both Halatau and Lovett, when we have Fine, MCK, Griffin, Falise ???

I thought Woods and Ava were good today.

The rest were terrible.

Kevvie and Nofa....our right edge is laughable.

apart from the obvious shortcomings in the forwards today,is the 1-7 of the team.

they may be quick and elusive,but they are all midgets.nofa,simona,kevvie,brooks,moses .

they say size doesnt matter,but i reckon it does.

we need some big boppers in the backline as well.
