I cannot believe some of the Eels recruitment purchase. Hodgson is over the hill and is obviously causing lack of harmony by his style. Doorey has previous injuries that were bound to happen as is Hodgson. Murchie is average, Makaslower is average, Blake is below average, Simonsen is below average, Skidrow (Sivo) is average, Matto loves his money and the only decent purchase has been Hopgood. To much reliance on RCG and Paulo combined with extremely poor recruitment. They have to stop watching 'Moneyball' and purchase some decent players or the Eels will be waiting another 36 years for a premiership.

              Ohhh and further, an acl rupture is an acl

              rupture - there are no good ones or bad ones, they all involve the rupturing of the ligament.

              it's the recovery and rehab process that determines the outcome. If shortcuts are made, there is a higher possibility of re-injury, players coming back too early increases the chances of recurrence 

      • Where is Gutho up to Chief ? You are just discriminating Hodgson on age . Anyway he does not look like a grandpa to me . 

        • No he's past the grandpa stage he's GeriatricPa

    • Well Meelk why in the blazes buy players that you already know had some quite serious injuries that are likely to happen again. That's not rocket science 

      • No it's not rocket science, but trying to decipher your dribble is...

        • Don't try Meelk just accept as facts and you'll learn something 

    • 1. Hodgson is NOT an 80 minute player. His creativity is being hampered by fatigue. Eels must have a hooker rotation. 

      2. Simonsson and Waqa MUST be dropped. Give the juniors a go. If Eels don't have any juniors, go raid the Panthers jersey flegg team

      3. RCG and Paulo need better rotation. They are too ineffective when they are busted and tired. Use the damn forward bench properly 

      • Hodgson partnering with say a Joey Lussick as an example is what we need. Especially with Lussick being able to play in the halves as welll.  Surely there's a decent 14 floating around out there somewhere. 

        • Stupid letting Lussick go
