It’s a massive blow no doubt but it gives whatever Cogger/Lamb/Watson a chance to stand up. All 3 have shown glimpses of their quality in First Grade. We’ve got a bunch of winnable games coming up most of which are at home and we’re always better at home. If our forwards show the commitment they did against the Broncos and Tigers we’ll certainly be competitive. The guys who were doing well for us last year need to step up. The Saifiti’s, Barnett, Ross and Sione have all shown some improvement in recent times and will need to step it up again. If all 17 of them can pick up their games just abit we can cover the loss of Pearce. Lamb is more suited to leading the team around the park as a dominant playmaker so it’ll be his chance to shine and get a contract. Last night was a great effort. If we can do that on a weekly basis we’ll be in with a good shot every week.
