Yet the Bulldogs have won two in a row and their coach got punted a week before? Stacey was part of Browns coaching staff along with Morgan, they are all shit. Both need to go, we will go close to the spoon this year.
Phil Gould has 300 games experience in coaching and Mick Potter will have 300 by the end of this season.

How does that compare to Trent Barrett or Stacey Jones..

just remember that with the change in coach NB has avoided getting another spoon added to his list. Must be the worst coach in the history of the NRL. Feel sorry for Stacey if they do get the spoon and it gets tacked on to his heritage

We have a chance against the Tigers but can't see us beating the other two or anyone else.
 
One thing I noticed during the game is our team has no idea what to do even for standard plays, e.g. when receiving kickoffs they aren't in the right place and are scrambling to get to the ball to catch it and then set up for the first run, it means we end up 5-10 metres less up the field and put ourselves under immediate field position pressure. It's so amateur.
On top of that we were puffed hands on hips s few times, wiz is right, we need better conditioning.
Get fit and learn the basics, back to square one.

I think you can put that down to the focus of attack being shifted from Shaun Johnson.

Shaun Johnson relegated to kicking (struggling currently) and second reciever.

Hes in such a rut he went to drop off someone inside and literally no one cutting.
yea but if hes not leading out there, then he needs to man up and start running more. Take a tackle or two. I saw him shuffle it on multiple times, and a couple to a man in a worse position than himself. It honestly looked like he was afraid of getting tackled. So much so that he wont even make the attempt and is an easy read for the defence.

I am sure he took the tackle more than twice in the game, didnt amount to much but at least he gave it a go. Previous games not so much so hopefully is on the way up coz there ain't much knockin on the door to replace him.

mind you is it there responsibility to come knocking or is it time management started looking?
In a perfect world they might be lining up. But in a real world the warriors are going to have to sell themselves to young and old talent
 
I just watched the replay.
I didn't see the game live, not by choice but by circumstances.
As a diehard fan, we watch every game live, always have.

Anyway I am going to be positive mostly.

We showed a bit more enterprise on attack at times BUT did fall back into the one up football and trying to get to a position for a preset move too many times.
There was intent to off load sometimes.
But we just looked a bit better than previous weeks.

We competed well in the forwards and had better line speed.
We weren't outflanked on wide D as badly.

Some bad reads and a couple of soft tackles gave Penrith some easy tries

Walsh was epic.
The guy commits himself, he broke the line a couple of times, popped the ball to Curran for the try.
That try came from Chanel Harris-Tavita at dummy half through the hands of Johnson and Volkman. Good signs.

Montoya ran hard as usual and the late footwork at the line helps.
When he was at the Bulldogs he was more fancy and I would love to see him in space.

Arthurs is a handy, middle of the road NRL centre, not elite but dangerous enough to worry opposition defences.

Johnson is getting some shit on this forum but he was tackled at least four times in this game when he chose to engage the line rather than throw a shit pass or the cut back man wasn't there. He made better defensive reads too and I felt he was not gun shy like previously.

Volkman looks like he has game.

Massive to have Addin Fonua-Blake back.
Lui is very decent. He is mobile and a big enough body. I would start him next week.
I would be bringing Katoa back off the bench because he is a point of difference.
Afoa has been good enough recently to maintain a bench spot.


Curren and Harris are walk up starts. I would keep Murchie

You can't start Jazz at prop.
He is the ultimate bench player.

Who is the bench hooker then.
Otukolo, Lussick or Chanel Harris-Tavita.

I was disappointed in Dallin Watene-Zelezniak missing that tackle for the May try
However it was Sironen who let me down the most.
He was responsible for two lost possessions under no pressure.
He was also sucked in by Luai for that final try.
This guy is in the team for his reliabilty, stability and versaltility.
I can take an error or two if he offered up something more in attack.
