Or maybe Fus needs to get off his wing and start looking for opportunities elsewhere. He can score no doubt and ruck it up from the back, but what about trailing Passi up the middle with RTS, or using his passing skills to open up Ken. I know its coaches plan but now Shaun is gone it opens new dimensions for everyone to try something different and maybe better.

Not wrong about needing to find other points of attack now.

No doubt we'll still run the 2nd man plays, but it's important we don't just run through the motions of the move but someone provides the touch that SJ would bring. Hence I can see Roger playing a lot more 2nd receiver.....in fact for mine Roger now has to be the key to our attack.

My only criticism of Roger is that I think his support play could be a lot better. Tbh the thousand hit up metres he usually runs a season doesn't really excite me and half of them I don't think is neccessary. I want to see him running off the shoulder of our forwards on most hit ups, camp around the ruck, 2nd receiver on those 2nd man plays, have trick plays designed for him - decoy runners with him getting the inside ball or a Blake Green fake set up bomb for the winger but grubber back towards the post's for Roger. Crucial he's our focus on attack.

Last season obvious emphasis was put on the offload as a point of attack. It was no accident we ended up 2nd for most offloads after several season where we seemed to had shelved it. Clever I thought by Kearney and co as our smallish pack are never really going to run over the top of defences, but the offload still provides a way to move them around. Vital for our attack it continues....even more so now with SJ gone.

Why didn't a big forward come in and grab the pass then? No worries that is being sorted as we speak.

Really or are you being sarcastic?

With the way players block wingers in kick chase these days it's almost redundant. Because of that I'm more open to Fusitua being looked at as a centre option in future if his defence can handle the position.

Looking at our top 30 we just don't have options on the wing or in the centres. They're all middle of the road centres.

Until yesterday I was in the ‘opportunities aren’t coming his way’ camp but after seeing him yet again over run his support lines and the lack of effort to chase a match winning break have me pissed at his performance- what’s happened to this guy? It wasn’t an easy chance but even his (non) try yesterday was out of character to muck up. It still baffles me the inconsistencies and attitude problems in this teams performances

Try the obvious, he has been signed to a decent long contract. Busting his balls for the team is no longer a priority, until they drop the lazy fucker to reserve grade and leave him there till he goes to Salford like his Kelston buddy. Not joking either he will be in Kearney sights after that performance yesterday.

The culture is rotten at the club and this is a result of it.

David needs to ask for a release. Too good a talent to be wasted here.

He is a massive talent, but a lazy fucker. Who would want him?

He would kill it at the Roosters or Souths I reckon. So would RTS.

He would thrive in a high performing or winning culture.
I say bullshit to that. He is a bone idle lazy fucker who drops his lip, just like his mate from Kelston. I have been watching the dude at every home game, and especially Christchurch this year. Nobody will want him, believe me.

Somebody would pick him up and find a way to make him fire again, but you are right Bruce, his effort this year has been piss poor and obvious to all and sundry that he isn’t giving a shit.

I get putting the boot I to SK and coaching staff, but it’s this attitude from various players that shits me the most. And before anyone @ me about SK motivating players, guys performing at this level should have a significant amount of self motivation otherwise they are dead wood for this team
