Check out his stats, he actually played a lot better than we're all giving him credit for. If he just relaxed and stopped trying too hard, he will begin to gel with the team a lot more. It's early days yet.

Iosefa was very dangerous at times today. The issue is his decision making - which is seriously lacking.

But after watching Humble he isn't the answer either

Hopefully Sheens can see that and will try something different next week if Robbie decides to step down next week
i agree with Happy.
And im not impressed with Humbles defence,he misses too many tackles.

Yep. He seems a good player but this part of his game makes him basically a liability out there.

Three games in 1st grade with The Weststigers. Three games in 1st grade for a couple of years. Give the lad some time. I'm with the positive people. Go Weststigers.

Reserve grade fill in at best. Also a poor defender.

isnt it better to be trying to hard than not trying enough? i didnt think he was trying too hard anyway..

our issue today around the ruck wasn't iosefa, it was the fact our forward ran 1 and 2 out. we had backlines set out one side of the field with 4 on 2 over laps and we persisted 1 or 2 out...

i heard brian smith on the radio after the game - he said they expected their front rowers to be scoring today. it was their objective to play up the middle. it wasnt untill the last 20 mins we realised we couldnt beat them at this sort of game and that we had to work with our backs up the edges. we do it all the time. we have a muhc better pack than years of late, but we still aren't a powerhouse. still need to utilise our backs more.

he wasnt bad at all. due to obvious circumstances other players would have only half been there at times and we were lacking direction. all iosefa did was put his hand up and try and do something. he could become a real asset for us in the semi finals.

Iosefa only missed two tackles today. Unf they were very prominent misses. Yeah he should have passed to Ayshford when he made his break, but we scored not so long afterwards.

It was more his distribution that concerns me. Slow and misdirected passes were fairly common, and he was a little slow to chase up the ruck. But that could just be fitness, not playing in firsts for a good while.

Let's be honest when you have the second best hooker in the comp, it's gonna be hard to replace him.

The missed tackles dont include the occasions he just watched a Rooster run past him without sticking an arm out.

I thought he was fine as a fill in, he is not Robbie Farah and to expect him to contribute like Robbie does is expecting too much, I wonder if he passed to Ayshford to score under the posts if we'd be saying the same thing...Im guessing no we wouldn't
