Re-sign Kev for 10 years
Also liked how they played down the win... the press were talking about the confidence of getting a win like that and how it will carry through for the rest of the year, and being the underdog, etc.I was really impressed in the presser, Kevvie clearly articulated areas that need to be addressed and how they are addressing them with some comments on individual players.
yeah I mean Penrith and cowboys for the first 2 rounds is a brutal draw and we beat penrith with cobbo who isn't a fullback at all, it feels like had titans didn't do a dog shot on walshy in the trials we would do put a cricket score on the Penrith dog *****.It’s early days but to Kev and the coaching staff’s credit the early signs are good. Handling his interchanges, team lists, and media better. Defence and resilience has seemingly improved. Still relying too much on individual brilliance but things are looking good.
Can't wait to send the ***** back to their Melbourne irrelevancy.May 11 - we play the Storm in Melbourne and I plan to go for the first time in years, this is out litmus test - if we compete for the full 80, maybe even jag the win, we will be announced as contenders.
Currently, we haven’t played all that well yet and have still beaten the two premiership favourites but pretty much shutting them both down for large periods and frustrating them into error. Good signs but again, early days.
I'll be very surprised if Paps comes back even close to the same player after shattering his knee, Meaney isn't that good and is more of a winger.I know this has been said before ad nauseum (but not be me) however I really feel that Melbourne are going to slip down the ladder this year. Probably still make the 8 but can't see top 4.
I think we are a definite chance on May 11 and also when they come up here in Rd 27.

Even with Munster they are a level below ATM, when C Smith left they still had Hynes to plug in gaps, since he went that team just hasn't looked the same level since.
