I'll be attending as well. Always enjoy games in Newcastle because there is a healthy Bronco fanbase there.I’ll be at this game, and I’m not looking forward to it.
I guess all we can hope for is that they decide to rest Ponga and Pearce (doubt it) hopefully Klemmer isnt back either. Then we might only get beaten by 20, instead of 40.
We lost the second half 12-10 so they don’t deserve any credit whatsoever. Even when the Eels took the foot off the throat we still don’t win a half of footballIf as many see it, our season is over, then I suspect the starting team for 2020 should be picked from next week on.
It will give the side a chance to train and play the way they want it, without an eye on the win/loss result.
If Siebold has some grand strategy many allude to, then now is as good a time as any. There are no more excuses left, and the team is now whatever he wants it to be. There is nothing left to be broken as we already are. What's left is the slow process of rebuilding.
A few more of those type of games though and you'll have to ask how many more players are discarded before you get to the coach.
I wouldnt expect a flawless attack with the loss of key personal but the insipid defence is ringing alarm bells. It has come only two games after a great display against the warriors.
That should have been the benchmark. Losing in itself wasnt unexpected, given our squad rotation but that first half was one of worst in years. To their credit they won the second half but only after parra took the foot off the pedal, and with a hap-hazard attack.
Players need to learn to defend together and selecting a team without an eye to both defence and attack is costing us. I don't know at this point what the answer is but surely the elephant in the room is "attitude".
By attitude I mean a willingness to play for the team and not themselves. The flashy play sometimes needs to be held back to gain the momentum and hold it.
Since lockyer retired it is the one thing that is our Achilles heel.
Looks decent but Macca starts or doesn’t play imo.1 God Knows

Newcastle has always been one of my favorite venues to watch a game from (if not my fave). It sure beats the atmosphere of Suncorp. Knight's fans are certainly passionate and very parochial.Sure am

Would've scoffed at the idea 6 months ago, but at this point, **** it, him and Gillo are clearly the only veterans in our team who are worthy of it, and Gillo is a bit too thick for the captaincy, give Lexy a 3 year extension and make him captain.Make Glenn captain and re-sign him too.
