    Can we run out the Woodberry warriors? At least they show some heart. Can't see anything other then another flogging.

    Saifiti - 35 minutes off the bench,9 runs 101 metres, 12 tackles 0 missed.
    Saulo - 45 minutes starting prop, 10 runs 104 metres, 28 tackles 1 missed.

    Saulo is 2 games back and nearly ready - Saf is 1 game back and needs another run.

    Starting middles and rotation is not working. Need to try something else. I’d be having a chat with Saulo and JSaf telling them that a 9-10/10 performance in reserve grade gets them in the starting 17 the following week. You just know there will be more passengers next week.

    Just to mix it up a bit. Despite his errors, I thought Watson was decent at 5/8 and will improve if he trains in that position for next match.

    Moga has played some impressive games in reserve grade and we need his impact. Dropping Hunt is harsh, but we need some try scoring options, and Moga can score.
    Saulo off the bench wouldn't have big minutes in him, but he has some impact when he is fired up and only asked to play short minutes.
    Sione needs to come back in as soon as possible.
    Talking of forwards who command a bit of respect in defence, maybe we need to give Brodie Jones a crack.
    Kurt Mann is not a great 5/8, but he is an old pro who will do a professional job for us in any position, and not be a total waste of space.
    It's a shame we can't give Beau Fermor a shot. He is tearing up reserve grade.
    The other guy who is going fantastic in reserve grade that we can't use is utility Chris Randall.

    It's a mystery because he is the only player who hasn't had a profile up for the last 2 years, which I can only conclude is because he doesn't want one.
    All I've been able to find is that he was in the Newcastle rebels under 23 side in 2017, so the oldest he could be is 24, but I think he is 22 or 23.

    Lazy lapses in defence and no impact in atttack. He’s pretty easy to forget.

    Blokes naming Mann at 5/8 are dreaming. He just got hooked in the warm up and Brown said in the presser he is going to stick with Watson at 5/8 as he said he looked dangerous there.

    I agree with him that this game we have looked more dangerous in attack and if the team is going to improve they need stability.

    The only change I can see happening is Moga in for Hunt for a bit more size on the left main attacking edge.

    Moga has had 4 games of reserve grade. His first game was just 30 minutes where he did a few runs and made 5 tackles.
    His next 3 games he has played 80 minutes, ran for over 100 metres per game, scored 2 tries and surprisingly he has had 4 try assists and 2 line break assists in 3 games. He has also made 30 tackles at 96.6% tackle efficiency (2 missed).
    The wingers playing outside Moga have scored in his last 3 games.
    In the game against the Dragons winger Kiah Cooper scored 3 tries and had 4 linebreaks - 2 tries and 2 linebreaks were from assists by Moga.
