I was looking through the ISC team lists to see where Isaako was playing after his dropping and he hasn't been named by any of our feeder clubs

I'm 99% sure he's aligned with Souths.

That happens seemingly every game (someone gets sent to the bin). How many times a game do you see the fullback nominate himself for idiot of the week?

That's what the fans will remember for a long time now, he could come back and be a completely different player but no fan will forget the mistake he made going into half-time because it was one of the worst plays you will see a player make this season. It's like Ben Hunt dropping it cold in extra-time of a grand final, giving one of the best halfbacks the game has seen 6 tackles to line up an opportunity to slot a field goal.

Fans will never forget it.
Not a particular crack at you or at Huge Huge. I just don't get why there has to be such absolutism that it is all on Isaako or all on Robati (noting that Huge Huge is not suggesting that, he is just suggesting that if you are looking for the major contribution it was the sin binning).

It is a team game, the team as a whole contributed to the loss. Defensive lapses from a number of players that resulted in tries. Isaako made a big contribution to the loss with his mistakes and general lack of contribution. The mistake just before half time speaks for itself. The mistake just after half time was also significant in the context of a team with fragile resilience. That mistake led to the Dragons setting up camp in our quarter for the next 3-4 sets. I can only imagine that immediately after half time with the hope of having a good start to the second half that mistake was deflating for a weak team.

The contribution of Robati's sin binning was significant because as Huge points out that was the period that our back was broken and two tries were scored. We went from six points down to out of the match.

But at the end of the day it was a team loss contributed to by various players. Robati's mistake in the context of his playing experience and the fact that it was in one tackle where he just misjudged the target zone is probably excusable. The mistakes of Isaako in the context of a far more experienced player who has played international football and is in a key spine position are perhaps less excusable.

That is my take.

Of course everything counts towards the end result but what is something that we can't do because we just can't defend it well enough is hand over momentum in a game.

Nothing gives a team momentum like gifting them a try, no matter how anyone wants to word it or look to attribute blame to someone else that play on the stroke of half-time.. you'll be doing well to see a bigger brain explosion this year.

Just the pure facts of the situation, seconds remaining.. first tackle scrum play (how many teams do that if it's not an urgent situation, that should have been the catalyst for him to kick the ball into orbit, if he wasn't already aware of the time left).. what does he do? plays for a 7 tackle set. Even if it goes dead they are walking into the sheds ffs, it's unbelievable.

i thought so two ... but i wanted to see if he was playing fullback or wing ... apparently it''s nowhere this week.

for Souths Tesi Nui is fullback with Oates and Quai-Ward on the wings

Really? I believe you vastly over estimate the average fans capacity to recall events. In fact, many posters on here cannot even remember what happened in a game they've just watched! I'll go further, some posters on here (like our bent copper) remember things that didn't even happen!! Imagine having to defend yourself in a courtroom and having his testimony believed!!

It isn't about remembering what happened during the game although we will all remember for a while Isaako's blunder. All these posts and rebuttals are supposed to be about JAHHW original statement that 'Isaako single handedly cost the Broncos the game' . I maintain that the sin bin was much much more significant yet dumbarsed posters on here decide that what Huge actually means is that 'Isaako played well, Isaako is blameless, Huge is defending Isaako and he's stupid when we all agree and KW does too that Isaako was shit yet stupid old Huge is resolutely defending Isaako and on and on and on with misrepresentation '

Isaako WAS shit last game but despite that Robati being sent was, in my mind the pivotal moment. That's when we lost it. Not the captains challenge ( which we sometimes don't use anyway)not the handover of possession and not the try before halftime.

Reread Lynx000 post. You just keep missing the point. No one argued Isaako's clusterfuck wasn't significant , myself included. I didn't blame anyone else nor did I defend Isaako. Again I say, I simply disputed the claim made by JAHHW about who or what was the pivotal moment.

Everyone understands how important momentum is yet it shifts back and forth in every game. That try on half time, awful as it was was just one of many momentum changes but only one momentum swing changed the game irrevocably and that was being reduced to 12 defenders.

Move on mate, seriously.

I've never seen someone find more and more ways to say the exact same thing, ad nauseam.

Whilst most others have moved on and simply stopped commenting about it, you continue to take up the fight with anyone that can be bothered to disagree with you.

It’s like you have this uncontrollable urge to be right and to prove that anyone who disagrees with you is wrong.

It’s the Internet FFS, who cares.

It's not about right or wrong. It's about misrepresentation. The fact I'm right is merely a happy coincidence 😉

I haven't made a single reference towards your views, I've simply shared my own.

No worries mate, it's frustrating for all of us and emotions do tend to boil sometimes.

No offense taken.

Imagine if Isaako was even half as good at backing up as Turbo...

I wouldn't read too much in to that, Souths are required to have their team to the QRL by 4pm Tuesday- they just pick their 17.
