    No angry at the loss, but angry at whoever thought it was okay for Matt Ballin to run back on.

    Is it the same people that let Glen Stewart back on last year with a broken leg?

    These are men, not race horses.

      Kind of do or die situation with no cover on the bench I'm sure he was given a choice

            Not gone with that bench - Hodges should have had 10 min either side of half time all year given we've basically had an ineffective running game from dummy half most of the year.

              I dont know what the confusion was.

              Horo was considered good enough to play in the 9 in a do or die semi last year, which he lost by 1 point.

              Yet today we make Blake Leary the dummy half.

                    The thing that angers me , is we have Lawrence sitting on the sidelines, who is a starting forward, and no back up hooker for ballin, I wouldnt be giving Chee Kam anymore game time. FFS even bring in Demitriou , he would have a bigger dig

                        Poster on here have said Lawrence needs more game time to get fit.
                        Well who is the genius who didn't select him at all this weekend?
                        Also, our next long=term hooker will be Hugh Pratt for the Under 20s. He's very impressive.

                          Looked like a really bad injury. Hope Hes ok. It must have been desperate if he was injured and they played him. Season done now.

                          Mate, season was done when the full time whistle was blown. If we won I agree that we would be a long shot anyway without Matty.

                          Didn't look good but you have to imagine that the physio and Doc took him through a full range of movement test and Matty said he was good to go. Once he returned to the sideline he was taken through a range of movement and running drills as well.

                          He looked fine running up and down on the sideline before he went back out.

                            He got sniped. Any reports on what the injury is ? Looked horribly like an ACL

                            With those injuries usually running straight is ok, but direction changes are the prob. Seems he ran fine for the kick chase, and crumpled once he propped to turn right.
