    I was thinking the same. We had our set backs pre season, but once the 1st round started I thought we had a good run with injuries also.

    The thing with our squad is we get a few injuries and we don't have the depth to cover them. The players starting for us in most cases, are supposed to be the backup players in case of injuries.

    The problem really was, and is, our backs are well below NRL standard as a group with our halves being a rookie kid and a busted old war horse.

    On the other hand our forwards are plodders consistently making 50-60 metres a game, other than Burher.

    We did not have 'depth' in the first seventeen, let alone elsewhere. See how well our reggies are doing. We have a long, long way to go and in such a competitive market place any reasonable signing may well see his career sinking fast here alas.

    Maybe 2019/20 if I can hang on to this perch that long.

    Cup is in the 7th position after 7rds.

    Had 3 great wins in a row.

    Give 'em time buddy give 'em time. With the line up and so much NRL/ESL experienced players we should be better than 7th.

    Obviously Feeney is an outstanding NRL player, ask beau (lol).
