Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

The last few times we've played the Raiders they really haven't done anything special in attack, but their defence has been great and has really frustrated our clunky attack, particularly when in striking distance of the try line. Having the week off won't help our timing or combinations in attack, ...

Re: Finals Week 1

And right on cue the NRL have decided to double the fine that was given to the Titans earlier in the year ($5,000), for the exact same 'offence', handing us a $10,000 breach notice for the Suli stoppage for a cramp - once again, we are being used to make an example out of... FFS! :roll:

Re: Finals Week 1

I didn’t agree with the game stopping last year. I didn’t agree with it last week. But I particularly don’t agree with the hypocrisy of outrage based on who did it. Completely agree, and this is what infuriates me the most - it's the double standard and hypocrisy of the reporting, MRC charges, and ...

Re: Finals Week 1

Apparently we're being investigated over the Suli cramp incident Rightfully so in my opinion - we would have been extremely pissed off had the opposition stopped the game like that for a cramp while we were on the attack. I have no idea what sort of penalty could (and surely will) be imposed though...

Re: Finals Week 1

Big concerns coming out of that game - handling, discipline, and in defence we were very poor at times, and no Munster moving forward will hurt against the Panthers, Roosters, and/or Raiders. Give over - what’s with the negativity on here? Sure we were sloppy at times, made some strange errors and ...

Re: Finals Week 1

The Eels aren't that good, but we've been worse.

This appears to be illustrating the argument against resting all of your players a week out from the finals - our combinations/timing has been WAY off in this one.

Having Klown on the Eels side offsets the loss of Sivo.

Re: Round 18 - Storm vs Cowboys

Also, not that I put too much weight on the opinions/analysis of Fox Sports writers, but this was their take apparently...
Brenko Lee was taken off when playing in the centres against the Cowboys with Nicho Hynes going to centre, after some ordinary defence on that side against the Cowboys.

Re: Round 18 - Storm vs Cowboys

Not sure if Brenko was injured or hooked, be interested to know. (He did look slow, more like a second rower playing on the wing) I agree Lee looked slow at times in defence (almost like when Eisenhuth has been forced to play out there), so I was assuming something wasn't quite right with him. I kn...

Re: Round 18 - Storm vs Cowboys

When Suli goes next year, put Hynes on his wing. Good size, good defender , good pace, smart footballer. Hynes' defense was very poor today, particularly once he was moved to the centres - the Cowboys' runners looked to be targeting him at every opportunity and simply ran over or through him on mul...

I think the interchange ( assuming all are fit ) will be Jacks, Darryn , Tom E and Tui.

So from last week

Jacks for Paps
NAS for Christian
Tom for Chris Lewis
Tui for Albert
Suli for Isaac
Hynes for Paps?
