Well , I saw him put a hit on a guy and offload the ball yesterday .
That made me smile .Two things I hadn`t seen before .
His defence pales in comparison to his offence . I thought he was a bit soft in defense for a front rower . But ,, there is promise .
And he's still only 21... so much potential.

was just having a look at the rest of the draw with games against

Tigers (Home)
Panthers (Away)
Cowboys (Home)
Knights (Away)
Roosters (Home)
Warriors (Home)
Sharks (Away)
Knights (Home)

What games do you see us taking points away from

I see a game where we should beat the tigers comfortably, cowboys is another one, we were the better team all night when we played them last and that was at townsville. Points are available against knights at home depending who is injured. Roosters game at home is winnable. Warriors and Knights at home i would say we have a solid chance.

I may be reaching but i think there is a solid chance we grab 10 points from these games left and finish around 12-10
We're finishing in the 8.

This is a very weak draw thats left, facing Panthers at the best time as well.

Having a week off after a win should put alot of our team at ease mentally could be good times ahead.

I was really impressed with the genuine leadership Staggs showed in this game. He’s always been a talent but the way he played and was carrying himself on the field was Hodges like - arrogant, taking the game by the neck, and leading with actions. The kind of play that gives the whole team confidence.

All of them. Panthers possibly still without Laui and Cleary should help - if we play like we did against the Sharks, we'll have every chance in all of those games.

I was sweating on the chase man, edge of my seat willing him to get it down.
Good stuff.
I thought for sure Niu would get tackled short and drop the ball when he made contact with the ground.

It happens so often that a player will lose control of the ball when they're tackled whilst sprinting.

I was a little disappointed in Niu top speed... maybe he's carrying a bit of weight (spent the preseason at center), maybe he was tiring given he's not all that experienced in NRL or maybe it was the heavy training sessions that were catching up to them.

I thought the team looked very fatigued at times throughout the game so possibly it was the last one.

I actually thought he consciously slowed a step or two and started to celebrate (via a big smile) a little before he got grabbed and realised someone was right behind him.

This is not a criticism rather an observation, as he’s still just a rookie with lots to learn. But it did almost cost him a try, and a good solo one at that.

God, I so badly want this to be true.

I did watch this game with a Sharks fan mind you, and he unintentionally somewhat burst my bubble when he voiced his frustration that not only had the Sharks dropped a game to us, they've also dropped one to the Bulldogs this year, so I'm inclined to not want to get too carried away with this one just yet because the Sharks may not be quite the barometer of success to measure ourselves against.
I thought the sharks looked pretty good in the game. They forced 5 dropouts and had 60% possession in the first half, also completed at over 80% for the game.

Speaking to a sharks fan, who is on the sharks equivalent to BHQ (and no not the LU version), and they mentioned that Fitzgibbon is apparently doing a fair bit of coaching in addition to his roosters duties.

Apparently he's along the lines of 6am-6pm is with the roosters, but outside of that he can do what he wants... and I noticed a few things with the sharks that could be showing some of his influences. The most notable yesterday was almost all of their forwards were constantly looking for their front on hitups, to the point where they were almost surrendering in the tackle. They would hit the line and instantly drop to their knees looking for a quick ptb.

Sharks don't typically play that tactical style. They're a little like us in that they don't wrestle a whole lot, their middle defence is pretty loose, and they like to bash and barge rather than purposely look for quick ptb's (which is a storm tactic).

I don't think it should just be thrown off that the broncos won because the sharks were poor... I've been saying all year that broncos play better when we're at home (we have 5 left), and we play well against equivalent opponents. That was our 3rd win out of 7 games against teams outside the top 6... we have 6 games out of the remaining 8 against teams outside the top 6.

I don't think we can make the 8, but I have us winning a few more for the run home... pending injuries, suspensions, etc.

How good was Tesi sniffing around for offloads yesterday? Was great to see. Looked disappointed when he didn't get one, but kept coming back like a little puppy trying to play fetch. Was great to have that kind of attitude at the back.

I think he was definitely thinking about the grounding... he was going as fast as he could but Ronaldo was bearing down on him so he knew he was going to get tackled short of the line.

What he did well was know that momentum would get him into the in goal and perhaps he did slow a little (as you suggest) to brace himself for the contact in the tackle and with the ground.

The grounding was brilliant when you think about it... keeping the ball up off the ground, maintaining control in the collision and grounding over the line with his body all over the place

That's exactly what happened. Reminded me of Chris Sandow a few years back. Certainly wiped the smile of his face quickly🤣

He just didn't have the legs , has great acceleration but his top speed is a little lacking.

Reminded me just a tad of that Berrigan try.
