    Dan Saifiti getting dropped is a bit of a surprise as is Lamb it a degree not form wise but just that the call was made. I thought we might persist with him but his form has been very poor.

    He didn't show up last week. Seems Brown sending a message.

    Dan Saifiti not named in reserve grade.
    I suspect his poor off season is catching up with him and he needs a rest.

    That would make a lot of sense Brown said during the pre season their was competition for spots and poor games would not be tolerated. Hopefully it fires him up.

    In the last 2 years it would be a big call. But we're playing for points now so 3 bad games in a row can't be tolerated anymore if we're being legit about winning & wouldn't be tolerated by most other clubs either.

    Looks like you get more leeway for trying hard but being useless. Fair enough I guess.

    Dan can't play cup as 18th man as they play 3pm Saturday at Campbelltown and he'll be in Tamworth.

    Wonder what the new excuse for Lamb will be if Cogger hits the ground running like Watson did.

    Lamb doesnt hold the cards now for his $$$ to sign, might be better signing with the broncos... Knights won't give him large deal off this form.

    Dan needs a rest, Jacob has been better IMO.

    Lamb had to go, honestly not 1st grade material...

    cant leak 40 points against any team and not expect changes...

    Maybe Lamb can replace JT? Seems its time for him to hang up the boots

    If nothing else it will be interesting to see how Cogger goes and really all he has to do to keep the spot is tackle well and run and pass well if he does those 3 things even ok he will stay in 1st grade ..

    Neither is Brown hence getting a spell.

    Great to see Lamb dropped, not up to it, Watson straight in once back, Lambs done.

    Shame about Sione continuing to get a pass, but sadly nothing to replace boy wonder with.

    Be very interesting to see How Barny goes this week.

    A bit harsh on Dan if dropped on form, he was huge 2 weeks ago. If he just needs a rest than i can understand.

    Keen to seen what Cogger can bring to the table

    100% form.. hence the rest... We have some depth, where we do players need to be dropped if they dont put in those extra efforts...

    Do you think his form has been that bad? Numbers wise he has been equal with if not better than Lillyman. Barnett has been much worse IMO
