    We just had the wrong people in these positions.

    If you expect your team to dominate the forwards then you need to pick tatical long kickers in these positions and play field position and then muscle over.

    However we kicked down their throat every kick. Where as Thurston's and Lockyear's long kicking was brilliant.

    We lost and we deserved to lose by plenty more.

    Our kicking was shocking. The loss of Mason meant the wrong forwards were on in the first 20 of the second half. You can't knock Buderus though. Gidley did nothing so he was a waste of a sub.

    Bailey to replace white in the 13, Best front rower in the blue tonight, dunno who will come into the 17 but Omeley is close to a return.

    King an outside chance but would be very surprised if he got the nod

    Gidley was used poorly.
    He should've come on for Ryan not Buderus.

    Why they took Danny off unless he's injured I can't explain.

    Anasta to lock, Gidley to 5/8. Why is that so freakin' hard to understand ?

    I never thought I'd say this but if your going to go for a new front rower, King is the next best option at the moment.

    I think they will wait till King Dominates a city country( like white does ), he has quiet ones 2 years in a row. before they chuck him into the SOO series.

    OMeley if fit will get called up for the bench, Baily to start.

    We need a decent five-eighth. Anasta tried hard but he is not gong to threaten the line.

    I thought King was good and went as good as white for the opening 25 minutes.

    White came back on later in the second and made some good runs against the tiring defence, getting the advantage there.

    Well, the pressure is on the selectors now.

    When everyone was calling for Mullen to play halfback it came with a clause. You can't put a 20YO in and then shaft him after one bad game. If you choose Mullen you have to stick with him for the whole series or else you'll ruin his confidence.

    The question on the lips of most rugby league supporters was why the hell they picked him anyway. Now the Blues have to suffer with an average halfback for the entire series so the selectors don't have to suffer the guilts. They've fuked up big time I'm afraid.

    The series or Mullen???? That will be the big question in two weeks time.

    There is no way there will be that many changes Fluffy.

    Barring injury, white will be the only one to lose his spot.
