On L U preview this week the guru rekons its our forwards who lack inconsistansty, not our backs. Are our forwards to blame for our inconsistancy??
Are they sometimes affected or hung over from to much bloody kava, besides price, the guru may have a point, what do you guys think??

Something I hadn't considered, but that's mostly because Price and Wiki have consistently been two of our top performers. Perhaps the guru was talking about the second row?

i tend to agree with you, but there have been some games this year where i've been suprised, such as when manly smashed us in the forwards and we gave nothing back.Overall i think its our halves if anything(until ravs at 7) that have been inconsistant.

Yeah i'd like to see sonny or sam in the 2nd row, just a spark & young enthuisiasm we may seem to lack sometimes.

I like this thought. Actually I am of the opinion that our front rows, especially Price is hitting the ball up too much. Take tonites game if he starts. How many times he features in a set of six. If it is twice, and the second rowers feature once or twice then the tackle count certainly diminishes. Leaving the backs to do make something with the remaining two tackles. Not enough time to be creative.
Having said that, then the backs, starting from the number 7,or 6, have to make themselves available, at every play the ball.

its about our playmakers not taking CONTROL of the game rather than anyones inconsistency. we lack direction from the halves.

I think it might be getting at how our forwards in particular the second rowers have gone good against the less dominatn teams ie Tigers and Rabbitohs then don't play the same against the bigger teams like the bulldogs or manly etc
