    While some posters do their best impression of Henny Penny, insisting that Taufua looks disinterested, has a slower play the ball etc and that this is a direct result of Toovey coaching, or player disharmony an interesting article found here highlights the reason behind Taufuas drop in form.

    Maybe cheyse blair could fill in if jorge needs a week or two to heal?

    Esp if jorge's play becomes ineffective due to the brace?

    (change the brace ....stat!)

    Ridiculous - like his beliefe that he is ready for SOO :dodgy:

    Jorge is excusing all aspects of his game due to a tight shoulder strap.
    How does that prevent his positional play :huh:

    Surely the Physio's test his ability to take the field and perform with the brace - and be able to breath!

    Otherwise, there is Blair etc in NSW Cup who can play on the LHS.

    I suspect the brace is keeping him out there on the field, and he really requires an operation that would put him out for a long period.

    Possibly he is hoping to play through it until the off season when he can have a reconstruction.

    If his play is badly hampered it may be best to bite the bullet.

    (of course I am speaking from the position of medical expertise :p)

    I'm no doctor either, but anything that restricts an Athlete's breathing would be a 'No, No' :)

    I think we need to give Horhay the benefit of the doubt here. Tooves will know when/if to rest him, otherwise he'll just get on with it & hopefully continue to improve :)

    VFTH - you need to buy a vowel for Jorge... A "U" to be precise... ;)

    1. Snake - has little to no knee cartlidge and dodgy hamstrings that most people couldn't get out of bed for.
    2. Jorge - req shoulder surgery and is basically held together with tape.
    3. Wolf - fractured vertebrae last year that he's still trying to play with
    4. killer - has had dodgy ankle/achilles for some years
    5. Matai - pinched nerves in shoulder/neck, dodgy elbow and knees.
    6. Foran - chronic ankle problem can't run
    7. DCE - hip and knee problems can barely run
    8. Choc - chronic knee and shoulder problems and bicep torn from elbow
    9. Gift - ligaments strain and knee shot, right shoulder/arm with limited movement.
    10 Horo - knee /ankle problems
    11. King - Ribs,shoulder chronic
    Not to mention all the other problems that haven't been highlighted , reported or obvious just watching them. Face it we have an all star team running on about 3 cylinders. It's a miracle most of them even run out to play. Results like last week will continue unless we find some miracle cures for these guys. Where's the calves blood ?

    back in the day, I stopped wearing shoulder pads that covered the chest etc cause i found it hotter, harder to breath, heavier etc...much better not having anythnig strapped to your body
