    Hopefully see a change or two this week. I think it will happen considering it was on the cards not that long ago.

    Dennis for Sione. Cogger for Lamb. Barnett for Buhrer or Levi cant afford to carry both of them on the bench.

    Buhrer for Lamb. Lamb is only warming the seat for Watson. And at this stage Watson is going to have a cold a$$.

    Buher is our fix it.

    Barnett back to lock the Twins , Heighington and Buhrer on the bench imo Griffin is still much better than Levi all over the park and we cant afford to carry Levi on the bench .
    Buhrer can spell Griffin if he needs a break but he really doesn't he can play the 80 so no need for Levi .
    I would still give Lamb another week , i don't think Brown will drop Sione but i would like to see Dennis get a start to see how he goes at centre .

    Agree Ethan.

    Cogger could surely do no worse than Lamb and for mine both centres had poor games. Amused to see both centres shown as no missed tackles, so it would appear if one rushes up out of the defensive line, tackles nobody and leaves a yawning ten metre gap it is not counted as a missed tackle? Very odd thinking

    Haha yeah mate as i wrote before stats mean nothing Uate 1 game had no missed tackles but 4 try's were scored down his side because he was so far out of position that he couldn't attempt a tackle lol...
    Do you think Cogger is more of a ball runner than Lamb i haven't seen enough of him to know and i think Brown is right on the mark with a dominant half like Pearce a ball running 5/8 is what we need ...What about Johns how is he going ...

    Lamb seems so undecisive. He got the ball five metres out last night, looked right, no foot work, looked left, no foot work and threw a wild pass that went to ground and by then the Storm were up in our faces and gathered the ball. This is his third year NRL and has played some three dozen games and he does not improve alas.

    Cogger to be fair only played with Hodko and Lamb so who knows how he would go with Pearce. He will attract the same problems as Lamb with the forwards singling him out in the line.

    What about young Hazard the reserve grade game i watched he did really well in a beaten team and was a handful every time he had the ball in hand .

    We have enough hand fulls with ball in hand, we don’t seem to have a problem scoring points. Stick buhrer at 6 til Watson is back, at least he can’t defend our line. I think 99% of sione’s problem is trying to cover for lamb. Stick someone who can make an affective tackle and Sione won’t make half as many mistakes

    Was thinking the same thing when I was watching the game last night... Buhrer to 6. Then we just need to find a centre!

    My thoughts exactly,
    Buhrer can ball play to a good enough standard to be the third link in our attack, he did it pretty well for Manly with DCE and Foran being the directors.
    He will sure up that edges D and im sure he will pull Sione into line also.

    Think we need to solve the problems from the players we have in normal 21 named, nothing else to speak of in reserves, they are not going well, only won 1, not a standout among them. Think Johns is injured.
    Wish they would telecast reserves so we could see what we have.

    Geez you're right, what else can we find to pin on lamb while he is the whipping boy? I think I heard Lamb sneeze during KP's first two attempts at goal last night, I'm sure KP would have slotted those is not for lamb. :rolleyes:

    So Sione's idea of defending is to just bolt up and try to shut down the play before it gets to lamb lol. I can see Browny in training now, look Sione, Lambs a bit of a liability so if the ball comes your way just bolt out of the line and do your best. :giggle:

    We'll ignore sione's horrible defence playing next to anyone when pinning the blame all on lamb

    Heard Blake Austin is on the outer with Canberra, wonder if we could have a play for him, would do very well/decent with Pearce at the halves.

    Austin is just as bad defensively as Lamb is. Would be more of a threat in attack though.
