And Opacic has only just returned from injury. Which I mentioned in the last 2 posts. Which you ignored...

Kahu would be a great centre in attack, but every team now knows to send a big body at milford's shoulder. Do you honestly believe Kahu would be able to stop that? Even with good technique, he lacks the size. Not to mention he tends to be more injury prone in that position..
we are talking about better options that Moga here ... **** a one shouldered Opacic is a better option than Moga. and even though he has only just returned from injury he still shits all over Moga as an option.

size isn't everything ... Moga went up against a decent center last week and barely laid a hand on him. Kahu just needs some time in the position to get his timing right.

both options FAR superior to Moga.

Hell if all you want is a defensive center you could put Glenn there and he would do a better job than Moga (and he has had his worst start to the season yet).

Look man, I too think we should drop Moga, but you're exaggerating in your criticism of his performances.

Whether Kahu can fulfil the proper defensive load in that position is contentious - let's just agree to disagree on that point. I don't think we're going to see eye-to-eye, no matter how much longer we discuss this.

This was a perfect opportunity for Moga to dominate in attack - the Souffs centre was so fucking bad in defence, it was almost unbelievable. The only thing he can do is make metres.

The first catch Mead dropped and Souffs scored from was a bit of a rough call against him. The bunker said "all players are contesting the ball" but if you watch Jennings he is only watching Mead, jumps on Niko's back and jabs Mead in the ribs when he is just about to take the ball. He was not making any play at the bloody ball. That poor call would have put anyone in a bad head-space and unfortunately Mead really couldn't get out of the funk. The Rabbits targeted him after that and he lost his cool. Give him another go I say.

Mead isn't the first Broncos winger to have a bad game under the high ball. Oates has too, a number of times. So has Kahu.
Mead can be a tough winger, I've seen him put his body on the line a number of times in the past. It's why I like him.

meady meady did have a shocker though. Like I said in the post game thread, I'm glad he was hooked. But I'm willing to give him more chances. Unlike Moga, he's had good games in FG in the past.

You're still tops, meady meady. Chin up, you'll have a good sit down with Benny, he'll push that doubt out of your mind, and we'll see you here an hour before kickoff for the regular.





This better happen or the next pic will be more Marantaish....

Exactly. Kahu had quite a few games to get the dropsies out of his system - he was dropping them for Wynnum then dropping them for Broncos the following week. Give Mead at least a few more games and training defensive structures with the Broncos and he'll come good.

He only dropped one last night and it was a contested bomb which are 50/50 at best when attackers are zero-ing in on you with no aim to catching the ball. The problem last night was him and Jimmy deciding to wrap the attackers up - That's all that needs to change (maybe, cause wrapping them up also works aswell - just not last night).

The problem was his arms were a good half a metre wide when he tried to catch (and I use the term loosely) that first bomb. He had no chance in hell of catching that ball.

It clearly affected his confidence. Hopefully he can build on that, spend some time with the AFL bloke, perhaps as I rate the rest of his game and enthusiasm in general.
