    Think dearden is only 17.

    As for the game, well we probably can't play any worse. Should be a good game with the two packs.

    1. Boyd
    2. Isaako
    3. Staggs (if Roberts is not injured he should have a few weeks off anyway, he is cooked the last 12 months)
    4. Bird
    5. Oates
    6. Milford
    7. Sullivan
    8. Lodge (if not suspend, if so then fensom)
    9. Mccullough
    10. Ofa (until TPJ's hamstrings are better)
    11. Glenn
    12. Sua (30 minutes ONLY, MAX)
    13. Gillett (offensively needs a lot of work but defensively it worked and its only his 1st game back)

    14. Nikorima (every good attribute as a halfback he can do as an impact dummy half but we lose the crap parts of him, his edge defence and kicking game are ABYSMAL)
    15. TPJ (until he gets a few metres in his legs)
    16. Fifita (save him for later in the year a little, but ffs he needs more game time)
    17. Flegler

    It'll be interesting to see who comes in for with Roberts injured.

    Ok we couldn’t beat the storm but can we at least give these pricks a flogging

    Give the side a chance to gel. If the forwards can hold their own better than tonight, Broncs will win easily. Unfortunately, they are up against the best pack in the comp and couldn't take it to Melbourne tonight, so yeah, it will be tough.

  8. Please be ok

    I thought Nikorima and Milford were both fine considering the lack of platform they had to work off. When our forwards were making room they both looked quite sharp with their running and passing games.

    As for kicking game, what does everyone expect when we're kicking off our own 30 metre line every set? When we were anywhere near the half way point they were targeting JOC and pinning him quite well in his corner. We just weren't in that position very often.

    The Cows pack is good, but their spine and backs are wooden spoon standard. Barring a ref special (to keep the rivalry close!) we should carve them up if we handle their middle.

    Kicking off our 30 is not great. It’s even worse when nikorima is doing it.

    Disagree. How can the forwards lay a platform with the terrible and readable ball they are getting. Melbourne were so in the forwards faves and never in fear of a half darting or being creative with the ball. Coupled with the terrible last play kicking options the forwards had to work overtime in defence with the storm starting with easy meteres after most kicks.

    If Roberts and Lodge are out, I'd go with:

    1. Isaako
    2. Oates
    3. Staggs
    4. Bird
    5. Boyd
    6. Milford
    7. KNik
    8. TPJ
    9. Macca
    10. Joffa
    11. Glenn
    12. Gillett
    13. Carrigan

    14. Turpin
    15. Flegler
    16. Mago
    17. Fifita

    I know it won't happen.

    ****, that is an ordinary side without the two aforementioned players. If there is an injury crisis this year, we will finish 14th.

    We need a new coach.
  16. winslow_wong

    Like Wayne?
  17. broncsgoat

    That would be an old coach.
  18. winslow_wong

    Who is your coach of choice then?

    That was a joke. Obviously the best option for coach is Wayne.

    Dearden didn't play any grade on the weekend but did turn 18.
    O'Sullivan didn't play ISC- is this week.
    Paix tried hard and didn't miss a tackle, was impressed with his effort to keep putting his body in the way of McDonald. Did a lot of little things right like kick chase and get in there for a run. New team so understandable.
    Boyd- got steamrolled by the CQ and missed five tackles.
