I'm not entirely sure but I believe it could be because with Toby being so slow he has to play more like Reynolds and straighten giving time and space to someone like Campbell to be the 'Cody Walker' on that edge. Given Isaako who's been with us 2 weeks is now in, they don't really trust the plays out that edge currently. Hence an inclination towards the left which doesn't seem to utilise the FB as much with Brimmo being able to get on the outside shoulder himself.

That obviously would be in conjunction with Toby himself being a very inexperienced half.

I couldnt believe though they never really attacked that makeshift left side of Parra. Surely somebody should have been getting instructions to them to pressure them.

Is it a streaker if there isn't any nudity???

Anyway, Latrell bitching that the playing surface contributed to his pre-existing hamstring injury. Boo hoo, that's way worse than someone being injured because you shoulder charged their face late, right?

I'm sure it isn't anything to do with his obvious spare tyre.

Wow, spot on Mr Morkel. His antics are laughable. Does the way he gets up screaming every time he scores put people off like it does me. He's really the king of showboating. Compare him to Tommy Turbo. Twice as good without the bullshit and fat guts.

I just don't know where we are at honestly. On one hand I'd back us to beat Manly next week and on another we could cop a pasting. Other than the Panthers and maybe Sharks (they'd shred our right edge) honestly, I don't really think any games are unwinnable as per say. (we seem to go alright against the Storm somehow)

What hasn't helped is this switch between Campbell and Isaako. Our attack was on fire to start the season, now as expected Isaako doesn't know half the playbook yet so it's clunky. Same goes with the forced rotations in the backline with covid. This also effects defence. The biggest issue however, isn't necessarily our goal line defence but the way we let teams get a roll on down field consistently. We just gift teams too many opportunities and the chance to trap us down our end too easily.

Overall though, only losing to the Eels twice by <6 and winning 2/3 of the others isn't terrible. Should've wrapped up the Raiders game though so yeah par would've been 3/5. Happier to be patient with a spine of majority local juniors though so I'll give it time.



I highly recommend the fans of the Titans crowd source $500 Million dollars to build a rocket ship to fire Isaako into the sun.
I have him comfortably as the worst player in the NRL. You aren't winning many of the games where he is the line up.

My bottom 5 players are

1 Worst - Isaako
2 2nd Worst Okonbur - Dogs winger who knocks on all the time
3 CHN - no discipline needless penalties
4 Mad Jack - It isn't really his fault. His reputation is just so stacked against him that he can't make it through a game without being placed on report
5 Tessi Niu (is slightly improving - but Broncos would be well rid of him)

I want to fold some Kents
Campbell should be back next week mate I wouldn't get too concerned over it.

No bottom 5 list is complete without Kodi Nikorima, unless you're trying to trick Bronco fans into taking him back.
 
Hynes drops an easy pass and his teammates rush up to give him a high five to show him all is ok
In my 30 years playing senior mens cricket we never high fived after dropped catches
If I were a coach I would ban high fives after errors
