Honestly, the blame for our season so far is on Brown and switching Ponga to 5/8 too early in his career. Last year, we had KP at the back and Pearce clearly the lead playmaker. Both of them did very well in Dally M points in a fairly drab season. We make some good signings in the off season, and instead of building on last season and keeping what was working happening, he changes the team fairly dramatically for this 5/8 experiment and we get KP hype train go berserk, Pearce no longer the main playmaker with all the hype it's just give it to Ponga. No surprise Pearce has gone off the boil. Watson also, brought here to play 5/8, wanted the 5/8 role and booted to FB to make way for lord Ponga. Ponga is a fantastic talent, but needed to be left at FB another few years, let the team settle in to it's rhythm. All of the above is why our season has been a fairly poor start. Hopefully now, with Ponga back at FB, Pearce can get on with running the attack, get Watson back to 5/8, though I did like the look of Lino there and think if given a few games there he would go well. Ideally I'd run Lino at 6 and Watson to bench utility role. So far we have played 3 tough teams and the Raiders away which is a hell roadtrip for us. The next 5 games are our season. We get Manly, Titans, Eels, Warriors and Bulldogs. If we can't get 4 out of those we are in trouble. 3 is absolute minimum.
