I’m not sure how anyone can deny Tanganoa has issues with his handling. He makes a lot of knock ons and errors at the PTB.

Let’s be honest he’s a tough and strong player ideal for the NRL and if it were not for these failings he’d still be there.


Classic today. 1st drive he loses the ball after the tackle is complete. 2nd drive he's injured and takes no further part.

In all fairness to Tanganoa our coaches were trying again to fit square pegs into round holes again They decided to play him at prop (against one of the biggest packs in S L) He came as a very strong running second row .Think the coaches are getting desperate there seems to be square pegs all over the team We can not even get a 6 and 7 who play together more than 2 matches .The best combination I have seen are Rocky and Jowitt .J Wood can tackle but brings nothing in attack witch is a big part of a hookers job

He can't keep hold of the ball, doesn't matter what position someone plays they need to keep hold of it.

Agree.
We have plenty of out and out props,in fact three sat on the bench today,yet he starts with a second row in at prop.
Chester signed Gigot,so we now have 4 fullbacks.Whats happened to Alex Walker ?
Josh Wood is starting games,but has no spark and on evidence of last couple of games by the time Kyle Wood is introduced we've got a mountain to climb.
After Brough was removed from the equation i expected Chester to settle on his best pivots,but unfortunately he doesn't seem to be able decide just what is the best combination of 1/6/7/9.I think this is why the players look like strangers to each other in the game,timing is way off.
Im afraid that whilst in general i think this is probably the best squad we've had for a couple of years,the level of performance is going backwards.
My biggest issue though,is there seems to be a total lack of motivation.If Chester can't get a performance/reaction out of the players next week,then its time for him to go.

Wow what an horrendous performance from Trinity...completely over powered and dominated in the pack.

The coach needs to pick players in their strongest positions stop playing Tanginoa at prop when he's a more effective strong running back row player. He's getting battered being played out of position.

Why isn't Chris Green in the 17? Is he injured again?
What about George King? Surely he's got to be brought in along with Green?
I thought Tangata was woeful and Navarette ineffective.
Hopefully Jordan Crowther will be considered at hooker to give the Trinity front row added strength & size against Catalan in the cup and bring in Tinirau Arona at 13 who appears to be our best loose forward in the squad.

Jordan might have played but had a niggling back pain having said that he probably would have got more stick than most, you know, being a young un and all that, a bit like Max did. Hopefully might be okay for next week.

Agree with all that apart from the bit about Navarette...I thought he was our best player yesterday, he drove it in hard, made a few metres and was one of the few to actually look interested.
Tanginoa should be rested next week, regardless of whether he is fit or not, and like you say, Green, King and Crowther should be given a chance with maybe Croft replacing Kershaw inside Bill on the left edge ??
M.I.B. ??....nope - M.I.R.W.B !!!

Unless we all run hard and straight in tandem and work as a pack of forwards wel get annihilated again it’s as simple as that they get on top again same result

I too thought Navarette could hold his head up after his efforts.

Hard to disagree with that, Mopsey....I don't mind losing provided every player has given 100% but very few gave more than 10% yesterday...totally unacceptable from so called professional sportsmen !!
