General NRL 2019 Finals Week 1 - General Discussion

After this kind of shellacking you’d normally hear the coach bust out tropes about it being a young team and just being proud of the boys for making the 8. Have to say though Young Broncs and Old this is the sort of pasting that leaves you in bad shape for next year. In fact it’ll have a few players looking for other clubs to improve their chances. Who of the young bucks hasn’t signed?
Seibold looks sick. Feel for him.
 
Why is it the coach's fault? Eels are playing their best game of the year. It's the spine that is winning it.
I do think the coach plays a big part in readying a group for finals. There’s no sense that Brisbane have had at any point had the edge or drive to even get into the contest. Again this game has just put paid to next year and maybe started the rot on ending Siebolds coaching job before the end of 2020...

Brisbane got gifted a finals spot because a QLD team has to be in it. At no point during the season did they look like they would compete in the finals

Can some trainspotter help me? I understand Madge got the boot from Souths because of a falling out with an agent. So that means Seibold got gifted a team that Madge had built. If so Brisbane have really brought a dud, and Madge as we know is quite a respectable coach. Who is Seibolds agent? Just asking like.

Absolutely. They got our spot, and after watching tonight I can honestly say we would have lost by less than 58 points...just saying like.

I just want to hear what those wankers in Brisbane who want the Warriors out think now.
