    No chance would Watson be even close to being dropped he played well in attack and defence ..

    Watson was probably our most dangerous along with ponga....
    Seems as though people just oick random players to have dropped.

    Watson guilty of trying too hard, he would have had 15 or 20 runs. Bit predictable in the end.

    I'll keep banging this drum but 26 points was enough to win that game.

    They scored two tries from bombs, 2 because Sione has no idea and 1 because Ross got palmed off into next week.

    If you're bagging Watson and Lamb you're saying our halves with a combined age of 42 and ~80 first grade games need to put on 40 points because Sione and Ross were useless in D.

    Denniss sitting on the sidelines gets me because imo he should get a go at centre and Ross back to the wing

    When Ross got palmed into next week Lamb dropped off as soon as the attacker got to Ross. He would have been some chance if he'd chased hard.

    2 days later and I’m still fuming at Daniel Saifiti for dropping the ball after Ponga ran the length to get us back in front. 33 points conceded against the Titans is an absolute p*ss take. Hope to see a massive reshuffle this week.

    Don't see too many changes Cogger and Heighinton for Lamb and JSaf but not many others Buhrer likely in with Yates and Denniss possibly

    2 changes had to be for injury, tipping 1 more, Buhrer and saying Denniss and Yates maybe can't see any other possibilities, stock is low.

    We just don't have the players to be swapping them around each week, and really, you don't want to be changing half the team each week.

    Stick with a core unit and change a couple of players each week.
