I expected some resolution
But again there was no solution to our sub standard performances

We are paying about $4 million between our 1, 6, 7 and 13. That leaves 26 others we need to pay from the remainder of the cap. Of those top 4 players, 2 are out injured tonight and another is on one leg.

We have an incredibly unbalanced roster and this is the root of our problems... but you can blame Croker (who would not be on much money) if you want...
Croker is a massive part of the problem. He is not a FG hooker. It’s the worst service in the NRL and we are the slowest team at rucking the ball up field in the game. Even the Tigers who are running dead last, make more yards. We never attack over the advantage line off fast play the balls because our forwards are sitting ducks and then along comes Croker to cumbersomely pick the ball up and dish off with his body facing the receiver. I’ll never knock his effort but he is not first grade standard in this position and it’s killing our go forward and our attack.


We just looked so predictable in attack. Our big backline shape was picked apart all night. We really are struggling in attack this year as we look so clunky and slow.

Yep I’m blaming him. Just him. All the rest are perfect. You can interpret what I said that way if you like. Good work 👍🏻

I'm sure Gordon will command selection when his performances are good enough.

Otherwise, would we be able to buy a hooker that is a clear upgrade on Croker for the same money?

Or if we signed someone more expensive at hooker, who would we move on elsewhere in the squad to accommodate them?

I'd like a Cameron Smith too, but our unbalanced roster arrangement leaves us constricted for options here.


Reserve Grader
Our pack is full of plodders too. Even the beast that is Haumole, lacks leg speed. He is still effective because of the way he uses his size but the point im making concerns our lack of genuine leg speed in the middle. Bullemor has some but that’s it.

Let’s all have a chew!
Can we stop selling a home game every year to the Broncos please?
Yep totally done with it. What a waste of a home game. Play these pricks at home in front of a full brooky and it’s a different game!


Reserve Grader
What the hell do these guys practice?

Other than 40/20 our kicking is ****e! Can we just once kick a bump in their in-goal.

Josh, keep your eye on the ball before looking at the defensive line.

New coach 😲 same problems.

The Bronco's who i dont really rate all look muscled up and fit and strong and fast.

Compare that to Turbo, Parker, Garrick, Johns etc.

It was like men vs boys.

Then again, last week a player on one leg, Foz, looked like Wally Lewis against us.
