I get all thatWhat can more can he do on his own? He's also got a 9 whose only strength is his defence. So he's got no help in the 1,6 and 9 positions today.
Having just signed Arthur, I don't think Humphries will ever get a go.I was glad to see Weekes get the fullback role but he didn't do himself any favours tonight, Garrick should be fullback next game and Vega/ Tippytoes wing , John's should never play again give Humphries a go give Arthur some time to become a ball playing forward and bring Gordon onto the bench
Koula was constantly coming in , because he had no trust in John's defense.Keppie went good today . No knock there . Schu also held his own. Our right side D lost us that game. Koula and Johns horrible . Koula is worth persisting with and he’ll come good. Johns is not up to it. Though Jake A came on and we looked far less vulnerable. Weekes no good. Doesn’t offer much at all IMO
I understand your frustration but Souths got done and leaked more points then we did. The next man up works when you lose one marquee player or a couple of regular first graders, but our three highest paid players all missed today's game and we have a minor injury crisis in the forwards. It makes sense that we would lose to a team playing at home with a full strength side, minus an edge back-rower.I’m sorry weekes is not a first grade fullback. He’s possibly a 14 maybe. He’s not up to standard at all. Cooper Johns is not up to it either. Sorry, tried hard but he’s not up to standard. Defence was much better in the second half when Arthur was on. In some parts of our attack it seriously looked like we had literally put this team together from complete strangers. Schuster running around backwards, players not running proper angles. It was a rabble today. Which I guess is fair enough when we’re missing the players we were but why can the good clubs just bring the next man in and it works.
Agree, however I think our forwards have looked better without Aloiai...I understand your frustration but Souths got done and leaked more points then we did.
