Anyone still think Staggs is pushing Bird or Roberts out of the 13 lol? He's been trash, don't even look remotely dangerous down the right without Roberts.

Really hope his injury is minor, our entire right edge relies on him.
Be fair, he’s probably hardly trained there. He also looked one of the few slightly threatening players.

Will be interesting to see how long Roberts is gone for, doesn’t sound good.

Macca makes 50 odd tackles, Boyd does literally nothing. I agree macca needs to bring more in attack, but for an opposition team its very easy to defend when you know that their fullback is literally 0 threat to anyone ever.
50 tackles is great except he has absolutely nothing left in the tank after 40 tackles. He needs a rest and someone like Turpin to come on for impact. There’s tackles where Macca barely makes it to dummy half to pass it he’s that tired.

Pros: Despite Melb totally dominating, the Broncos managed to stay in it (sort of). Gillo and Lodge were outstanding. Bird was solid.

Cons: Roberts is a massive loss, Oates looks to be favoring his knee, this current spine isn't going to threaten anybody. This side is going places but definitely not this year.

Kodi to super sub. At least in the middle he shouldn’t get found out as much in defence

I think we can still do okay this year. Drop boyd or move him to the wing, and bring in O'Sullivan for nikorima and put nikorima as the bench utility. Can come on and be that spark he did well in 2015. Boyd doesnt do enough in attack or defence to be our fullback anymore. He played every game last season and was useless for them all, and said he is feeling fitter than ever but was abysmal in the trial against titans and mud again tonight. He just doesn't have it.

And a lot of those 50 tackles he is getting carried 10+ metres. Some of his tackles are very ineffective.

I’m actually happy with how we went tonight.

We showed heart, fitness, and slight improvement.

We have to remember that with youth comes errors.
