We are so light-weight, it is unreal. Barring Taai, we have no strength.

Our strike props have all of a sudden decided to try to break the line with their backside instead of just trying to bust through. Those that do, make no yards.

Our right side can't tackle, our left side can't pass to hand.

Our line speed is dismal.

We have no speed in the three quarters and if we do, we can't utilise it.

We have no last tackle options.

We can't defend kicks and have even stopped catching unopposed bombs.

Someone was once made to look silly when they said you can't win anything with kids. However, when the kids are built like that, it's true. It really is like men against boys.

People are bagging Frawley, but how can a half play inventive rugby behind that pack.

But it's alright because most of our team are home grown and that's all that counts.



We need 3 new props to replace Matagi, Seb and Clough

simple question would Clough, Matagi, Seb, Bruno or Murphy get in a top 5 team? simple answer is no.

Murphy is past it now and should be a squad player.

Matagi was a gamble which hasn't paid off. People try tell me hea a unit. Really? Looks small compared to most teams props

Seb ha she deteriorated so much. He's uselessness now.

Clough did well last year but still not got the size.

Bruno is the best out of the 5 but I'm not a sure he's even good enough for a top 5 team

Plus the like and of Ferguson who needs to retire now, his body can't hack it

Seb running straight for the first time this year in his second stint was a highlight...

Stop dreaming giantsrl any player who has been out as long as Leroy hasn't a cat in hell chance of regaining full match fitness all he will achieve is another injury!!!!! By the way just over 4,000 the attendance.

Woolfords answer was to go with a mobile pack, many thought was quite sensible given the reduction in substitutions.....- the problem is a mobile pack only works if the pack is actually mobile
And since our pack has two speeds- slow and stop, without an offload or side step among them they aren’t able to compete.

well they say he will play next week... heard that one before mind.

if he can have an injury free pre season without surgery like he has had to have past two then hopefully he can get back to not missing games but age catching up, one things for sure we need our captain back

thanks was hoping for over 4k
