    Mann, Ramien and Buhrer should not be in first grade. Figure out other options and get rid of them.

    We need a real 5/8th, and I think if we have an opportunity to get someone like Maloney, they should take it.

    Robinson saw how Melbourne beat us and did the same thing.
    Both Melbourne and Roosters have beat us in the forwards for years, and now they are not taking us on in the forwards and beating us by attacking the flanks.

    Neither of them are what we need at 5/8.

    Didn’t expect a win today, but didn’t expect us to be that f***ing sh*thouse.

    Ramien is a deadset muppet and the fact we’re upgrading him over Hunt is laughable. Mann is crap, as is Buhrer. Get players who deserve to be there and have a crack and **** the deadwood off.

    We won’t be making the 8. If anyone thinks we are than they’ve gotta be on some strong pipe or something. If we somehow get there miraculously we can’t expect to play like busted asshats like we did today cause that was pure tripe.

    And people had the audacity to call me a troll when I said Watson was showing Levi how to play hooker several weeks ago...

    Levi is just awful fullstop. A couple of flashy scoots from dummy half shouldn’t ever cover that up.

    Brailey is 10 times the player he is.

    I don't know but Mann is not up to it and I think Reynolds is over the hill.

    Matty, What has happened? we had the team to punch into the 8 ,we just need to get the same team in set positions , with the same attitude.
    It is OK to play up tempo in attack but Defence wins games and we have 2 of the best sitting out at the moment.
    Some of the selections do leave me scratching my head - selections, positional changes and bench use is part of the coaching dilemma which can be addressed.

    Ponga is a decent goal kicker, Lino kicked into the feet of a opponent last week which led to a try. We need a better kicker in general play at 6.

    We gotta stop running past the ball in 20 good ball. We were lucky not to concede more tries from runaways. After the chooks scored 3 in 5 minutes I turned it off. We won't make finals playing like that and if we do we will be knocked out in the first game.

    It's been a weird season, went from being spoon contenders to being a legitimate top 4 chance to lingering at the edge of the top 8, origin derailed a lot of the form, focus and fitness of the team but it's no excuse for how badly they've performed this last month.

    Particularly smart play from Mann to go into dummy half on the last in an attacking position and pass the ball to Ramien instead of Pearce. Cost us a try but no hook.

    Lino is the best kicking option we have for 5/8.
    He is a lot better kicker than Mann and Watson.
