    Jacob played well vs the storm, he and ese were trying in the middle but couldnt make a dent vs bigger stronger guys that had double the amount of possession.

    Barnett should be good off the bench also imo, he will be aggressive at least.

    Agree with this.

    Ese'ese looks really suited at lock to me in the way he plays. He's more athletic and mobile than most props. Could be our no. 13 long term

    How’s that, we sit 10th and are the worst defensive side in the NRL. Honestly what was all the talk about “we were working hard on our defence in the pre-season” for? It isn’t showing much so far. Sooner or later these 30-40 point losses have to come to an end.

    This has been the constant in my fluctuating opinion of Brown as a coach. Every year we've been told about all the work done in the pre season on defence. They might as well went and sat at the Beaches every arvo drinking schooies because we still concede 30 a game. Conceding the points isn't the worst part. Conceding them in the same area and manner for going on 4 years get's that award.

    Our props have been quite dissapointing so far this season. Esse Esse is the only prop playing as i expected before the season started. Dan and Jacob still have massive potential of being really good props. Dan last week and Jacob this week showed glimpses of there ability.
    Hopefully they start firing soon like 88 said if we can win the ruck we win the game. We have the class of pearce and ponga to score plenty of points when in the position to do so.
    I think it would also sort out a lot of issues in defence the less defence we have to do and the less defence under fatigue we miss less tackles pretty simply really.

    Our right edge let in a try after 90 seconds.
    Not sure how fatigued they were.

    You mean that try from a gridiron pass? That should of been a penalty to us for that pass.

    Haha the break that happened yes, the try that should never be given.
    Would love to see that given in a GF.

    Agreed somehow they pulled up his second one that was nowhere near as bad as the first one... Refs really wanted them to win it seemed, and our right edge also wanted them to win.
