    Watson should be a utility, he doesnt fit the characteristics for any of the 1-13 positions.

    At least we can expect to be better next yeah.

    Canterbury think this year is bad. Wait till they get Cogger

    Pearce in for cogger and we are a lot closer. Cogger is awful. So yeah pearce in and it’s a contest.


    Also believe Watson will play better along side pearce

    Barnett to half next week. His kick at the end was our best of the game lol.
    We need to shop for a 5/8, we need one that can kick and pass.

    I still expect my players to be able to catch the ball and make simple tackles. Dumb decision after dumb decision as well.

    15 Errors and a completion rate of 66% against Melbourne...28-10 flatters us

    Lot's of work to do

    Well thats debatable as the modern day fullback has ball playing ability. He'd be a good fullback 15 years ago.

    Watson will be able to kick, pass and read the play when Pearce is there.
    Clearly his lack of skills is because he misses his mate.

    If we had the same run of injuries as Saints I would say we would be in the 8. Maybe not with f&a

    We aren’t world beaters but it’s injuries, depth and inexperience that has killed us this year. All things we can improve on next year.

    Wasn’t it said Griffen could kick? Why hasn’t he, we are desperate

    Positives - we created enough chances to win just lacked exucution.
    - effort we didnt stop trying
    - defence was a pass mark for me while having 28 points put on you is not great condsidering the errors we made and the opportunities we gave them they probaly would have put at least 40 on us in the past.

    Negatives - ball control was useless
    - no kicking game (will improve massively when pearce returns)
    - lack of direction ( will improve massively when pearce returns)
    - lack of go forward ( will improve when safiti boys return)

    I’m sure being negative is doing wonders for you. You must be a joy to be around.

    When you put it like that it doesn't seem as bad. Saifiti and Lillyman will give us size and Pearce will give us direction. Positive note is Sione, I don't know about anyone else but I think he has improved massively

    Yeah as long as we sign some forwards.

    Looking forward to Ramien he is amazing, hopefully Ferguson as well.

    Glasby is an ok signing but we need front rowers with hate and mongrel.

    Christ Michael Hagan is a ******. He’s f*cked the club up twice and still acts high and mighty.

    Why is being honest and realistic negative?

    The truth hurts I get it, imagine if Melbourne actually tried to play.
