    Two decent kicks from Watson. Maybe he should back himself.

    Defence wins games, we should start there- up and backs as a line (not 4 at a time ) so they become spacially aware of what is their zonal responsibility and appreciate the importance of supporting the outside from inside starting with the furtherest winger - everyone in motion , everyone involved at all times.

    Do this for for the first 5 days of training till they drop, they will learn not to Jam in.

    Our attack won’t be effected - just give it to Ponga ( this is wearing thin too all the opposition have worked it out ).

    Glad I did not watch the game being 6200 km’s from home has it’s advantages.

    Ese and Saifiti actually did well considering how much we were on the back foot.
    Our reserves or lack of did nothing to help them.

    100%... Ese has been very good all year and DSaf had his best game in ages. Not many other positives to come out of today though. (Except maybe how good Ramien looked)

    Was at the game very dissapointing. Listening to the press confrence and reports during the week asbout how intense our training sessions are the question has to be asked is he smashing the boys to hard at training because they certainly lack intesty come game day. Dsaf and esse esse went well. Cronulla were offside 90% of the game we can lose easy enough our selves without the refs disadvantage us further.

    Based on this game we need to select 4 props at least each week, Esee and DanS did ok today but got no help from bench, trouble is we don't have much to fill those positions. Can't pick Griff, Levi and Buhrer in same team. If Ross was doubtful we should have played Denniss, he has been named in 18-21 group lots but not made it on field surely it's time to give him a go. Ponga was picked of easily because he was the only danger so they marked him as a result was his worst game for us. Thought Barnett was ordinary, move him to bench or reserves, Guerra to 2nd row, Yates to 13. Can't see us doing anything with halves as we have no one. Reserves game showed us no one.

    Refs didn't play a role today... we've got much bigger issues than worrying about what they're doing.

    Only two positives from Brown in the presser.

    Dan played well. And Ramien is coming to play right centre next year. Ha

    Barry Toohey in the presser "As a coach what do you do this week to improve the defence, obviously it's been a focus for the last however many weeks, it's seems to be getting worse."

    Hahahahaha

    Well, I’m back here & half tuned up after a few coldies... I see we did exceptionally we to keep them under 50, go team!!
    I honestly don’t know how their attitude can be fixed within a few weeks to be honest. Before I walked out, it looked like they’d quit
