He has many off games and his ankle is not strapped all the time. so cannot blame that for his many off games
Well its certainly why we are not turning our plethora of red zone opportunities into points. Its not in your head mateHalves/hooker are a huge problem, but it is not just that is it?
Great Rant mate... you are not alone!Walsh is a half, hes always been a half at heart, and he has X factor. It made no sense to me to throw yet another year down the drain to play Walsh at FB and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck Wing. In fact it caused to many problems with the outsideback roster. But I just dont think Walsh will cut it as a FB. It reminds me of Ponga for the Knights, except in reverse.
We have some fantastic forwards in the team now, the only positive I can see right now. We are getting to the redzone so often, that if we were the storm or any other team that has quality halves, quality outside backs and a coach with far better cognition than Brown, we would average 40 points a game.
Which leads me on to Brown, why, why the Flap did we sign him? He is the one coach all players do not want in the NRL. He is simply the worst coach in the NRL, he makes SK look a genius. SK with the talent he now has in this team would have had us back in the top 8 similar to 18, and likely better.
Regardless, pick any Coach and I would take them over Brown. At least SK had a plan and improved certain stats immediately, and 2019 looked like a top 4 year (before the player massacre).
Brown is doing nothing, at least nothing that is reflected on field. He looks like one of those school Dad coaches, thats how much I rate him as a coach. He is going through the motions at training, but these players have been doing this kind of thing all their lives, they need to be "Coached" not "Trained".
As usual Brown will sell it off as a rebuilding year, which is not good enough. 6 losses we could easily have won with some "Coached" composure would have us in the 8. Instead our season is over (we need 8/9 to even have a hope). Given how close we have come so many times the issue is clearly a coaching one.
All I hope is the owners stick to their word about "Perform or your out" type sentiment. For some reason they seemed smitten with Brown, likely sold a turd that only Brown could pull off. I just hope they close him out immediately, or its another 2 years minimum of this sub par coaching and another 2 years missing out on the 8.
Im so exhausted of seeing over the last 30 years some absolutely useless players in our team some how hanging around (ala Kodi) and Coaches doing the same. It is extremely disrespectful of the club's fan/member loyalty.
We deserve better, lets demand better, money talks.
