damage was done by then

was worst on in the first quarter

like the ruthlessness but it needs to apply to the whole team
Agreed it needs to be applied to the whole time but Polec on Cripps was a recipe for disaster

May as well have had Brown man up on him, same result.

It was poor coaching

It was desperate coaching. After having his pants pulled down, possibly costing us the game, Polec responded well, rolled up his sleeves, found some form and got us back in it.

Based on that, dropping him is bad coaching.

Tag role I didn't think much of......thinking the coach wanted to try something different. But being dropped after being arguably our best last week......something stinks.

His overall form compared to last year isn't quite there but who's is?

Didn’t Polec keep Cripps 2 possessions in the first qrt?
Cripps got half his touches and 3 of 5 ofhis score involvements when they kicked 5.1in the first.

Honestly if we play our wing on wing and defense first center square mid in the center square in the first quarter, we win the game.

He's either a certified genius or an authentic wacko.

I have no issue with Shaw breaking eggs.

As a club the stench of stupidity will linger if there's a rift between coach and player and we take unders on Mr would be going to a fourth club.
Nah. Pretty sure we front ended his contract so he can just suck it up if that’s the case.

Personally I don’t think there’s much in it. Just a little clip before we head into a condensed fixture.

Frontloading creates an incentive to leave if he's a merc.

I have no understanding of the relationship nuances between Shaw and Jared. It's likely No one on here does.

Getting deep into the woods a bit, but there’s no way I’d let a player leave if they decided to fleece the club because they’ve already earned most of the coin. I’d rather play them in the 2’s on principle.

Not suggesting that’s even on the cards with Polec, just discussing the hypothetical of a player wanting to leave after a front ended contract.
