Feck, I wish we had at least one defensively sound outside back to mix in, and no that is not jono wright, that storm performance was a one off, he’s done the same maomalo, “retreat on defence until you are almost over the dead ball line when they are running at you from 10 out” more than once this year.

Poor old solomone kata is wearing down, the dragons will run their big tall second rowers at him and find plenty of joy, almost tempted to give him a break and play wright or even peyroux at left centre. All options seem like bad ones at this point. Hurrell back to right centre and targeting benji with matulino might find some joy, benj does not tackle like Jeff Robson.

Do you keep the metre eaters and the same game plan and hope the field position game finds a bit more luck on a cold, wet wellington night?

We're not winning this game people... The dragons game plan forces teams to play conservative on attack and make spot tackles all game long...

Our guys don't have the mental fortitude ATM to wear the dragons down...

As soon as our guys get frustrated some one will bust out the c word are we'll open up like a baked clam....

Imagine if we got a hypnotist in and subliminaled them so that the c word was a trigger for the whole team to lift the intensity and play great footy... People would cut it out pretty quick if we did that...

Caus ATM its a key word for them to pack up early and think about the showers...

Poor old Solomone Kata is wearing down,
To be honest I dont see that at all...Yes, he was given an on-field tutorial by Ferguson, but by second half learned how to deal with him. I cant blame him for being out of position for that try against Sharks....cause he was put out of position by the coach. He's been doing his usual runs coming out of our line...Was non existent on attack, but so was the whole backline...In that fist half when we had 66% possession, neither of our edge was unleashed..cant remember a single instance when hurrell, Manu, Kata and Maomalo were given early ball

I think teams are making a lot more inroads down his channel than they were previously, obviously he swapped sides, but Wade Graham was racking up 15m charges running at him and townsend every time.
And his running metres have been going backwards for the last month, doesn’t appear as dynamic, but that might be because no one is giving him the ball on attack.

We call them cu**s because they keep losing not for packing up early.

Team named on zero tackle but no Hurrell and Peyroux 18th man? Otherwise no Hoffman still or Thompson.
