    I’m low key amazed they don’t open it today and forgot there are two more games tomorrow

    Yeah but huge difference as to why .. one is attitude or is he up for it, the other clearly hindered physically.

    Latrell could be hindered physically as well and we might not know it. But people would go straight to attacking him for being lazy but with Turbo people just go "oh he must be injured"

    It annoys me because look at how Latrell has been playing, he is amazing can be one of the best. It’s when he can’t be bothered with all that skill is why it annoys me. I thought the exact same with Fifita the last two years but he has really picked up his game and has been simply outstanding for them he hasn’t even scored a try this year and he’s been their best.

    Yeah will be looking at him for sure, but at the moment I'm looking at who to trade the 1-2 storm players to that hasn't played yet this round.

    I just saw this on Twitter and he makes a good point. Why wouldn’t Rabbitohs off Adam Reynolds more than one year at 31 but are offering 30 year old Wighton who is 1/8th of the player a 4 year contract?

    With Turbo and Haas throwing a spanner in the works for next week's trades, thinking of going Katoa and Warbrick to Manu and Cheese.

    So expect Katoa to go 60+ and Warbrick to get a hatty.

    Yeah, I agree with this approach, but I still think Billy needs to get his TS
    Also Bula had a beautiful escape from in goal which didn't get awarded Shocked

    I still get frustrated when one of my players is part of a dissallowed try (DFifita try assist this round) or gets dudded by a team mate, I'm looking at you Robert Mad

    Ah what, it didn't!? That's a joke, that's as good as you'll see.

    I don't subscribe to the whole 'Latrell is lazy and isn't up for it' narrative but I can see why you might.

    Players are often admired for running around at 100% for 80 mins, pointing and shouting a lot. You need that and it's going to keep your team competitive but generally it's not going to win you many games when it gets to the pointy end of the season when everyone is going 100%.

    Players have different playing styles, skill sets and abilities and lambasting one very excellent player for not being more like another very excellent player is a bit of a pointless exercise imo. Maybe Latrell would be better if he went 100% all of the time but he probably wouldn't. Trying to turn a player into someone else rarely works.
