    Game feels a lot safer without Stockwell in the team.

    It's bad isn't it! I had the old watery eyes going when we beat the Titans & probably would have today if I'd seen it. Never been like that watching sport... I then proceeded to get hammered to celebrate that win, as I most likely will tonight now

    Soft mate ~ real soft! You is gettin' old!

    For mine today the play makers will realise we can score from kicks into the in goal, from forwards running a good line and set up as Lamb and Feeney set Sione up for his first try and keeping pressure on the opps for longer periods, cutting down penalties and ball control, which was better today. I still don't se why Brownie perserveres with Starling.

    I actually think it's because you can see what it means to them- they had so much emotion on display it's hard to not get caught up in it.

    Im guessing the kicking for touch was to give our D a chance to get set and not start each set on the back foot. Generally our attempts at getting the ball in to the in goal have failed and put us on the back foot straight away.

    Even today our few kicks to the in goal didn't get in their clean, their D fumbled the ball.

    Does this mean u may just finally agree that it has always been a play to go to ground on the last inside the op 20m zone?

    Also probably the suprise packet was feeney looked quite sharp for the most part.

    Honourable mention to Wardle solid and created at times without being great.

    Also has anyone answered what happened to Elliot, if Browns looking to bring Wardle in I've been a Sio fan but surely he was the first off the block back to NSW cup?

    Hopefully this is the end of the 'Fitzy is never going to be a first grade player' talk. He is and always has been a big minute starting second rower and you can tell he bleeds red and blue. The heart he showed when getting back in the line after the knee injury was damn impressive.

    So Brown flogs the young squad all off season and the team looks increasingly jaded from game to game. We get a bye and the week after we have strong wins in all three grades.

    Who do you mean by u guys? He isn't an impact player full stop and every time he was previously in first grade he had to be a tackle robot in the centre of the field and it obviously just doesn't suit his game at all. I've always rated him as a starting second rower.

    Brown said in the press conference likely torn meniscus.
    Interestingly I think he also said that starling may have broken his hand so everyone on here might get their wish of not seeing him next week.

    So many good performers today but Dan Saifiti played a top game, 54 minutes before his first break !!!! He started the year a bit slow for what we were all expecting but the last few weeks he's been putting up good numbers, the guy is still only 21 he could be one of the best props going around in a few years .....
