I predict stadiums even empty than during the Covid crisis if these types of games keep happening some of these games are worse than schoolboy games.
I struggle to remember a round with 4 entirely unwatchable games to kick it off. The Raiders could just as well pile on next game vs the Titans also. They've only beaten superstar teams Cows and Broncs.
 
Bloody he'll... the 4 worst teams play the first 4 games of this round .. nek minit ... 4 big floggings... unfortunately theres a big gulf between top and bottom now.. good for me tips, but seems like about 12 teams are fighting for top 8 instead of 16.. not good for the comp if you ask me..

Todd is a good coach. Give him a couple of seasons to sort his team out. He has inherited a mess
Todd did a great job with the Warriors towards the end of last year. No doubt. But to be considered a good coach you need to win a few games. Not happening We don't have Taumalolo

He may be, but the problem is it's only round 4 and looks to have lost the dressing room. That has got to be worrying for the front office.

The most curious part is they said there was 10+ of these Cows playing today off contract, they're playing like they don't want a contract at any NRL club.

If you want to go from an NRL superstar to a shadow of your former self, just try and make the NFL. Hayne and Holmes are living proof.

I kind of hoped we might sign Holmes when he returned from his failed NFL attempt. So glad we didn't. The guy just looks like he doesn't want to be there. Zero effort on cover, which is the last thing you need from your fullback.

It's not like they were a high performing group of players last season. If you have players already who don't seem to want to play for a contract what does that tell you about the quality of the squad? They need a big rebuild. That's not necessarily a reflection on Todd's coaching ability considering he has not had the time to shape the squad he wants.

Agreed, they have been stale for some time. They somehow limped into the GF in 2017, but 18, 19, 20 were pretty ordinary and Green just continued to cut and paste his 1-17 every week. When he really should have done a roster clean out.
