General NRL 2021 Round 4 - General Discussion

How bad are the Cowboys.
On paper this is the worst Sharks line up that I can recall in 30 years of watching first grade league and they have been further decimated by injuries in this game.

It's not like they were a high performing group of players last season. If you have players already who don't seem to want to play for a contract what does that tell you about the quality of the squad? They need a big rebuild. That's not necessarily a reflection on Todd's coaching ability considering he has not had the time to shape the squad he wants.
I don't disagree with you but surely as a rookie coach you take a team on the rise (i.e.the warriors) as opposed to a total rebuild (the cowboys). At this rate he'll never get a head role again.

As Jesus said on Easter Saturday, thank God that's over, I nearly fell asleep. Looking forward to the next game to see if Sticky can resurrect the walking dead this week.
He will. New rules allow the ref's to dictate who they want to win. I'm predicting the ref's to set restart the Titans into submission in order to right the wrongs Whingy Ricky banged on about during the week.

Wait'll next time we play the Raiders with Perenara as our 18th man, ref and new captain, he'll be the new Cam Smith. Ricky will self combust on the sideline after Henry's 8th penalty try off forward passes.

The problem for the Cowboys is that they have got around a third of their cap on 3 players, ones forever injured and another is a winger who they are making play fullback. Their other 3 high priced players, McGuire, Hess and McLean are in no form at all.
It gunna take quite a few years for them to turn it around because their young players comming through dont look like 1st grade material.

Come on Titans win off a forward pass....
Going to be an interesting game. Will the raiders have recovered from last week with a number of their players playing longer minutes than usual and are the titans good enough to take advantage. I picked a 13+ raiders win but could be anything

I believe Morgan is about to be medically retired, which is a tiny light at the end of tunnel.

I reckon Taumalolo and the Cows will agree to part ways for the good of each other.

Taumalolo is worth the money, but not when everything else is so far out of whack. An Ivan Cleary Penny Panthers type clear out is needed.
