I've gone with
3 - Locke
2 - Godinet
1 - Laumape
Locke seemed to be the only one intent on trying to spark something. Even that good-for-nothing Johnson
had to send it to Locke to try to find a spark.
Godinet always looks dangerous and his try was undone by the flow of the game - if it could go wrong it would. His defence was better that the supposed "good defenders".
Laumape didn't make a fool of himself in a team filled with fools.
I now think it is time for people to fall on their swords. Hurrell put his hand up as not playing well enough, but he is a kid fresh to first grade who isn't getting much ball. How the fuck could he play well.
I want to see the captain put his hand up and offer his resignation from the top job until a turnaround happens. His tackling is reasonably good but his leadership is pathetic. That team needed to have its balls handed to it in the ingoal awaiting yet another conversion, but he is too proud to do it.
is another one who should get the arse. He really offers nothing but a very rare one off individually brilliant runaway try and just looks like an idiot the rest of the time.
Mateo does sweet f-all and has to take a break. They were 1 minute back from a drinks break and he struggled to play the ball as he was hunched over puffing, then, once the ball was played, he returned to that pose.
These 3 players in supposed senior/leadership roles are the problem.
And our attack is a myth. Ever since our team was filled with these attacking superstars like Locke, Hurrell, Johnson
, Mateo, etc we have struggled to score anything. This week we added to our abysmal inability to score in the first half. Last week we broke the hoodoo of not being able to score in the final 20 minutes. That leaves 20 minutes of most games where we might get lucky and get some points.
I think its time to drop the Warriors back to NSW Cup and find another team capable of playing a game at the top level.
P.S. I was actually relieved to see Rapira go off inside the first 5 minutes. Hopefully, that was his last shot in the first grade, and we can concentrate on selling him to some club who are short on brittle, ineffective players still living off a reputation undelivered on for over 2 years.
