I have said all along that this Parra side is a about getting a position in the four...... That's about as good as we are at the moment.
I just watched the BA pressor and some film with the boys in a circle arm in arm. Nathan Brown was doing a fair bit of talking and the body language looked good.
I can't pick too many holes but the obvious one to me was that we exerted no pressure on the kicker......why not? is a question that needs to be asked.
The usual people will come up with the usual arguments.....I noticed someone wants to get rid of Kidwell......does anybody know enough about what he does and doesn't do for someone to actually suggest that...... it seems we have all the critics but no answers when it comes to attack......Moses has one of the longest kicking games in the comp......but we never seem to get under them whereas our competition always seems under theirs!.......why is he not running.....I don't know?
Sivo is gone for the year, whatever he did to build himself up I am not sure of .....but he has lost all pace and power and of course confidence goes with that....
Field did a very good job and is an example of a very good attacking player not be able to attack because the opposition defence was so good...... please note you are only as good as the defence let's you. Ask Penrith that, they had more ball to score tries than in any game I've seen this year, but we held them out with good defence, guess what? their's was better!....... That is why our attack failed along with the areas we discussed.
The reality with hooker is that Reed Mahoney is not the answer unless he does a lot of work on his pace....his service is fine but the elite hookers are the whole package.....we need harry grant!.....you will note I spoke about Reed and not the replacements used because what they offered was good effort but not the answer.
Stop blaming the coach unless you think you have a coach that is going to get more out of the same cattle......don't know anyone that is available that could do that with any certainty at the moment.
Time for the non supporters to start getting behind the team and treating them for what they are 4th in the comp....probably overachieved to do that....means a compliment to the coach and the players.
If you think they have underachieved then fine......but don't undermine what we are!
