    Dan Saifiti had probably the best game I've seen from him. His numbers weren't that far off Klemmer's and he looked far more agile than in the past.

    If Ponga is worth 1 mil he needs to provide more then that.
    He was mia besides 1 good run and a lucky kick that Lee made look good.

    Not sure where we go atm, dropping a few mite help though.

    We really look like a team not trying at times and then when we get some luck the ball goes to ground.
    W

    Watson cup
    Fitz bench
    Barnett lucky Guerra is gone or bench
    Garvet bench
    Levi bench

    D Saf to start
    Buhrer to start at 9
    Jones into the 12 jumper

    We need some heart back in the team.

    Neither of them can. I’d go with Toovey or Barrett.

    Ponga is the only attacking threat we have. Barnett topped the tackle count and tried all night. Yes he has a mistake in him, but he's the least of our worries. Can't disagree with the rest though. D Saf should start and Jones deserves a crack.

    Then where was Ponga during the 10 minutes we played against 12? Didnt even touch the ball.

    The manly 7 who is being paid 1 mil killed us for 80 minutes on every big play and controlled the tempo like a million dollar player.

    I know Jones looks like he's ready for it but I reckon Fermor is the more complete footballer

    Been saying the same thing for years mate, apart from the titans (who didnt exist until 2007) we have the worst finals record of any team in the comp, only 3 finals wins since the 01 premiership, utterly embarrassing.

    I'm over blaming the players. It's up to the coach to motivate and get the best out of them. Brown is to blame end of story.

    Clear from the outset we were not up for this game. Called it after 10 minutes we were not winning today. Left with 12 to go.

    I hope Brown really does only have a few weeks as buzz said.

    We can't name Fermor till July, which is actually when I think he'll just about be ready to play some time off the bench.
    I'd have Jones playing a bit of prop in reserve grade to get him ready for the firstgrade bench.

    Ponga was checking to see if he still had a jaw. Got smashed off. Lack of attitude in this current squad. Time to change up the squad. Worked for the doggies.........................

    If the backrow is playing like they are right now he can have a starting spot
