He came out and trained in front of the press so sadly that won't go over.

Noticing the trend here yet? Seibold just told the whole League world that Boyd and Milford are protected species simply because of how much money they are on. If Bird was fit and playing like garbage, he would be in the same basket.

This club is far more interested in protecting its face than it is winning games.
And they fail to see, these things are inextricably linked

I didn't realise Matt Manukia's Twitter post was a thread.

Fusitua, Maumalo, Paasi are going home...

...after the July 19 game against Cronulla.

Also should have read further into Egan's suspension, I read the NRL.com headline and just went from that.

Honestly even if they lose RTS, the Warriors should win this weekend. I'm not sure when the penny is going to drop with the Broncos, but they've done nothing to suggest it's going to turn around.
Warriors starting 13 would be getting close to their full strength??

Jazz to come into 13 and Murchie out for Katoa, but the backline looks close to their full strength pending Herbert as they hadn't really settled on a center pairing I believe.

That bench looks pretty horrendous though

I wouldn't mind seeing how Isaako would go in the centres. He's not very good on the wing or at fullback, but centre might suit him the most. Farnworth can stay on the wing (and I don't mean that like a demotion, I rate wingers higher than centres).

Justice for Isaako at least, and he’s finally named a bench that makes some sense. We might just lose this one by a little less than normal.
You know the bench won't stay that way. Luke will probably get dropped for someone too because he played well last week.

I reckon they'll get smashed again because they will think all they have to do is turn up to win again.

You know Isaako played centre in NYC for Cronulla and won quite a few accolades there.

I thought two first round exit from the finals via floggings would have been enough for some hard truths.
*In my best Jack Nicholson voice* THEY CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

He was good with ball in hand, where he struggled was in defence. Even at NYC level, he was horrendous in that regard.

It doesn't appear he's improved that facet of his game either.

Just missing Ah Mau.

Afoa would be on the bench as well.

Doea Isaak train well? He works hard on the field. He just seems to get lost at times. Is there any way to get through to him because for athleticism, he appears to well built and he babbles the wing hit ups fairly well. He has good pace. It seems a shame we can't get someone to work with him the way gilmeister did with Kevin Walters back in the day and just drill him to an inch of his life.
I really would like to see him succeed but defence is the one thing holding him back.
If he can't get it right I don't see much future.
Mind you it probably doesn't help him that the current coach doesn't seem to have a clue how to coach attack.

There were articles last year about how he stayed back after training to work on his goal kicking.
He seems pretty dedicated in the gym and with his diet, as his physique is one of the best at the Broncos.
I dunno then if it's just the lack of talent or footy smarts or if it's an easier approach to all the other types of training that doesn't seem to translate to the field.
