Somebody like Arthur could be in the wings. To be fair to Cappy though that was a good performance considering the travel. That was not the same team that turned out pre season against the Dragons. If we miss the finals it will be because because of the first half of the year.
His hitups lacked punch compared with previous seasons, he played more like a forward than a winger. I think Lolohea should have been on the wing and Manu could have been a relieving forward. We might have got more yards up the middle.
Agree to a point.. the team are playing hard and proud... hats off to that.. but cappy is too stupid with his selections.. a smart Jamie soward type and big angry forward and we are spot on with the team.. hard one with the coach.. but fark.. dumb dumb team selections and bench use every week.
We were absolutely dominating them, why the hell would you change that just so you can say everyone got a go? I hate wasting a bench spot, but considering the flow of the game that's not the reason we lost at all.
Using this game to throw blame on Cappy is nonsense.
That stat is deceiving because the majority of the metres came from kick returns and teams kick to Manu more often cos they know he's a good chance of making a mistake. I'd rather see a smaller, quicker winger that has more than a good chance of scoring.
I can't think of any other NRL team that's running a winger that's over 100kgs yet we have one that's 115kgs or more and possibly one of the oldest in the comp too. When do we look to move him on or in?
