we returned for the second half after the momentum turning 39th minute try with Choc,King and Kite off the field(I certianly hope they were forced into this as none had recovered from knocks).That left rose,cross,bailey and buhrer out there for some time together.The roosters killed us off the first set and in a few minutes the game was gone.That Carney try where Cross and Buehrer didnt lay a glove on him summed it up.Our bench is simply not up to it at the moment.Firstly I will admit I love George Rose and he has as much potential as any prop in NRL.Get rid of him to Sunshine Coast until he is fit enough this year and next.His mid season injury has totally deflated his fitness level and he is a liability and to be honest to non eagle fans he is like a walking talking joke at the moment..At his fitness level a QRL plodder will be better as at least they may fill a defensive hole. My second comment re the bench is that Joe Gnulavou does not have any goat pictures.If he was not our best second half forward yesterday I was watching a different game.Almost every week he provides some much needed go forward as we flag near the end of games yet he is often the last forward used and usuallyÂ it is too late.I would hate to know how many minutes he has played this year.It seems to be forgotten he was a starting number 12 in a GF side last year for a reason.Cross and Bailey are dead set ordinary,not totally hopeless as some suggest,but they are ordinary for sure.If Joe does not take GlensÂ sopt for the next few games I will give it away.Not that it matters now.It is too late. Lastly our points woes in the second halves stem totally from the sideways running that seems to infect us every week.This totally messes up one of our only 2 real attacking options where Farrar chimes in.It works great when the ball runner plays square but otherwise it inevitably ends up with Matai and co being run close to the touchline.This is where the bbreakdowns that lead to long range tries stem from.Unfortunately it starts in the halves with TH getting the ball on an angled run or Foran trying to beat a man on th outside which he has a propensity to dnce he doesnt get get past the outside shoulder andÂ passes the result is a foregone conclusion.Both players lack great pace which doesnt help.What they also mainly lack is experience and as such they will learn and get better in future.I still believe Foran is a 13 and a real good one but our list wont allow him to get a run there it seems.Watch pearce when he plays well.He is always square to the line and the ball runner is outside in. I noticed DCE had a tendency to also crab last week which I think was due to the weak opposition and I hope is not a normal feature of his game,which looked very good in most other respects. Lastly getting rid of Ben Farrer is a major mistake.Have a look at yesterdays game and tell me he does not warrant a spot in our best 17. The season is done now so lets look forward to a better run with injuries and Stewy returning in full health.and hope glen doesnt get 5 weeks and miss the start of next year.Overll an reasonable effort after multiple injuries.Probably 7 out of 10.
