    Is Sione Katoa the worst hooker to play for the bulldogs.

    Unfortunately I don’t think they’re available for selection until round 11 except for Doorey. I agree though, they’d be better choices.

    I think every centre has Hoppa covered for speed.

    DID COTRIC PLAY TODAY?

    NRL should fine the club $10k for continuing to play Hoppa after a head injury in the pre season. They should then give us an exemption for Schoupp.

    DID COTRIC PLAY TODAY?

    I don’t think Hoppa passed the ball once in the game yesterday. Every time he got the ball, he dies with it.

    Is Sione Katoa the worst hooker to play for the bulldogs.

    Burton and Averillo are the best halves for dogs 2022 onward

    I agree. If Averillo can play like this consistently, and Flanagan doesn’t improve, Burton and Averillo will be the way forward.

    To be fair, he played good and showed some vision against the Knights, but since then, he’s been rubbish.

    Got sin binned today so no thanks. I’d rather Katoa for another 2 years until Grant comes onto the market.

    BELLAMY’S FUTURE A FACTOR IN STORM STAR’S NEXT MOVE

    Has anyone thought of playing Papenhuyzen at 9? He’s fast, but haven’t seen much of his passing. Could be what we’re missing. A spine of: 1. Averillo 6. Burton 7. Flanagan 9. Papenhuyzen would be in the top 16 of the comp.

    At this stage, his best position for the club going forward is fullback, but he needs to learn it in reserves. His development has been hindered by skipping NSW cup and going straight to the NRL.

    Barrett the worst coach in NRL history

    I agree. Baz knew the situation and joined us anyway, so I’m putting faith in him that he can get us out of this mess. If by the end of next there is little to no improvement, then I can understand calls to sack him, but he’s only 4 games into his tenure with very little to work with.

    He should miss minimum 10 weeks. But he won’t miss 10 minutes. We all know why. Absolute grub.

    4 plays that stifled our attack (Round 3)

    He completely skipped reserves, which now seems to have done him more harm than good. I’d stick him at fullback in NSW cup for the rest of the season to let him develop properly.

    If, and it’s a big if, he’s able to trim down and get his fitness up enough to be able to play 80 minutes at hooker, I wouldn’t mind this. I’d only be concerned about how much the club offered him.
  64. Mr. Ditkovich

    News Matt Burton wants out

    Absolutely. I want him here this year, but that was on the basis he would stay in reserve grade for the majority of the season. Playing first grade would only help him improve, and hopefully he plays so good that Penrith have no choice but to at least play him from the bench.

    Opinion Our roster

    Atoni, Ogden, maybe JMK(depth)
  69. Mr. Ditkovich

    Reflecting on the past 2 rounds who is your best 17 for round 3?

    Our issue is our props and bench. I’d drop Napa for Ava, but there’s not much else we can do until Thompson comes back. Maybe also play Waddell on the edge and put RFM on the bench as part of the middle rotation. Round 5: 8. Thompson 10. Hetherington 14. Ogden 15. Atoni 16. RFM 17. Ava
  70. Mr. Ditkovich

    Napa should never play again

    Add Katoa and Hopoate to that.
  71. Mr. Ditkovich

    Opinion Attack

    I think Averillo has been hampered by moving straight up to first grade and skipping reserve grade last year. I’d put Lewis at 6 for this year and have Averillo play fullback in reserve grade. We’re not getting very far this year anyway, so might as well prepare for next year.
  72. Mr. Ditkovich

    It’s a good thing half the players are off contract next season

    Current team I’d have for next year: 1. Allan 2. Cotric 3. 4. 5. JAC 6. Burton 7. Flanagan 8. 9. 10. Thompson 11. Elliot 12. RFM 13. Jackson 14. Averillo 15. Atoni 16. 17.
