    Something Positive Amongst the Sea of Tripe

    If he does play fullback this week I expect him to get the same treatment as Perham. I think Kiraz would be infront of him at this stage in any case.

    Opinion Very Interesting Game Tonight …

    Both teams last night were pushing the boundaries in the ruck so much that there were times I wondered if the ref still had control of the game. There were some bad refereeing decisions in that game but both teams were breaking the rules repeatedly. It's not all on the refs is my take.

    Official Round 10 - Bulldogs vs Raiders Game Day Thread

    If Burns is out we will struggle. The two passes for Averillos trys were gutsy plays. Who else do we have that would do that. No Fox and no Kiraz means Averillo is our strike weapon and no doubt the Raiders will mark up on him Friday. Need a big game from Burton.

    Paul Alamoti

    Hearing so much positive feedback for Alamoti gives me some confidence he will be a consistent FG player. Seeing a back rower do him for speed on the outside not so much. Hoping he learns from that and finds a way to overcome his speed liability in defence. Trust the process that is now in...

    Opinion Burton does not deserve to be captain.

    Who comes in for JAC next week?

    Sure our squad has deficiencies but if you were our coach they would all probably retire by year's end with your attitude. If you think you can't do something then that will be true. If you think you can then at least there is a possibility however small. Obviously you aren't the coach and I am...

    The coaching staff has impressed apon the squad to defend mistakes. Like others have suggested we were on a hiding to nothing. Didn't have the team or energy for that game. We as a club are building don't expect a finished product this year or your brains will dribble from your nostrils.

    Is Rajab permitted to play after round 10? If so perhaps bringing him into the team at the expense of Flanagan either outright or off the bench might be an option. KO is a bit greener than Rajab in my mind and needs more experience in reserve grade. Unless between now and round 10 he really...

    I realise Burns attracts plenty of hate on here but thought he was serviceable at the back. The team defence was solid, not sure if he contributed to that or not but it is a fullback role. Perham is still an unknown in our system so this week's game holds plenty of interest. Interesting times.
