    Honestly, I think they have been pretty bad all year. Won a couple of games against significantly understrength sides (yes they were missing a couple themselves) and lost games they should have won.

    The wheels started falling off a bit when that young 6 went down IMO. He was a bit of a stabiliser in the side. Gee that back line last night was awful though.... couple of odd selections.

    Yheah, we have been average at best all year and understrength, still waaaay off co petting with the best of them. Top 8 will be a struggle at this pace. Fergo has to stay on the wing, Reed isn't first grade standard formine so 9 continues to be a huge issue, as does having no 6. When is Nathan Brown due back?

    Your forward pack has gone to water aswell, they were coping without Brown for a few weeks but atm they look gassed before a ball is even kicked in anger.

    Reed is fine but shouldn’t be playing 80. They also need him and the coaches to come up with a goal line strategy. He can’t be first defender off the ruck every team targets him there and roll over for an easy try, there have been 22 of them this year

    If you're not gonna run, learn how to pass from the ground. He can't do it, every play the ball, he lifts it, has a big back swing and passes almost forward,it kills me.

    BA screwed him, his early season games he was jumping out and engaging the markers and bringing his forwards onto the ball. The Eels were getting a good role on. BA got in his head, made changes and now he is super indecisive

    that would have been why they started gutho there a few weeks ago. They certainly need to sort something out with it, because its ruining the side

    When you catch up with a few weeks worth of posts, and come up with this little gem.

    Big fan of co petting. probably my favourite category on Pornhub.

    Glad to see i'm here with like-minded people!

    1 day after Moses re-signs the captain walks out on the last year of his contract to sign a 5 month deal put together in less than a day. Something doesn't smell right.

    How many tries do Parra have to concede through Mahoney on the try line before they do something? Raiders just went one out 3 times straight at him knowing he would break and concede the try

    Spirited comeback win. We don't win that game last year, we fold and get rolled by 50.

    Hes with the Dragons now but theres no thread for them and he last played for Parra so it may aswell go here.



    Mitch Allgood set to run out tonight for the first time in 1819 days. Between NRL games he's seen 5 governments, the release of the Apple Watch and invention of Hoverboards.

    The stinker we throw in every four to six rounds. Write it off and move on. Mahoney still an issue though. 54 tackles, and only two missed and two ineffective, at the very least two of which were at the line that lead to tries. And a puddly little 4 runs in 88 touches. It's simply not enough.
