    It’s funny you’d think with 86 wingmen and 40 Half Backs on your list you’d think we could kick the ball efficiently but apparently we draft the only ones who don’t do that well.

    Oops, good point! Umm, dunno then, White the unlucky one I suppose. Rice effectively for Armo is nowhere near like for like but it seems from the team email that he's getting called up.

    I dont remember Marshall rucking except in the forward 50, if I am wrong I apologise but you dont have to be such an objectionable di#k.

    It's getting late in the week, which means it's time to throw all common sense out of the window once again and start thinking Saints will win :D

    And you don’t need to lie to prove richo can’t coach. Try facts.

    There's a difference between a lie and a mistake, though it's hard to tell on the Internet.

    Yes I think we should drop Marshall that way Hickey can play on Grundy and Acres can match up against Mason Cox.

    Out - Newnes, Clark and Armo

    In - Rice Sinclair White

    B White Brown Rice

    HB Coffield Carlisle Webster

    C Sinclair Steele Phillips

    HF Weller Membrey Geary

    F Gresham Marshall Billings

    Foll Hickey Ross Steven

    Int Gilbert Acres Savage Dunstan

    Once again I think we will be done at the centre bounces so we will be beginning our attacks from HBF.

    Nothing really wrong with that but it means we have to minimise the ball butchers across hbf - hence Geary to hff.
    I'd also like to see Gilbo spend a bit more time around the ball to utilise his tackling pressure.

    Thursday optimism back - Saints by 11 points.

    Edit - On the topic of ball butchers did anybody else laugh last week when Gilbo was the only goal scorer to half time and then Geary some how manages to become about our first player to kick a goal from outside 50 this year!!!!!

    Welcome to our forward line. Roo would have kicked 1800 goals if he had some sort of delivery.

    He did ruck at small points. 6 HO as opposed to Hickey 18. Freo has Sandi with 41 and Cox 3. So Marshall outperformed their second ruck..

    Cox is only 193cm, so Marshall should have had more hitouts because he is 8cm taller.

    Did he only ruck against Cox though to win those hitouts? I can barely remember the game to be honest.

    That's our secret plan... 12 man defence and the ball never leaves our forward 50...

    The great wall of Richo...

    Basically, the only way we will win another game, is if the other team's midfield is worse than ours.

    but then we can't hit our forwards, and our forwards can't hit the goals

    maybe we can't possibly win

    I'm feeling really positive about this game which means the disappointment on Saturday night will be strong.

    Plugger it wasnt intentional and I dont have embellish anything to prove Richo is incompetent, he does a very good job of that himself.

    Then you need to watch the game. Or check facts before knocking otherwise you lose credibilty

    And what posts are they Plugger? At least Im consistent it was only 2-3 weeks ago you were happy to critcise Richo now you are his best mate again. Perhaps all the years of the following the Saints has caused you irreparable damage?

    Ps Im happy with my credibility how many people do you get along with on this forum 1 or 2? Not bad odds out of the thousands registered.
