    Watched the SGBALL v Roosters - as per trial game against sharks the Doggies, apart from Logan Dillon, either lack genuine speed or don't play to it. Roosters smaller quick players caused the doggies all sorts in the second half. First half Dogs had very little ball but defended well and I would have thought with a decent amount of ball would probably dominate the second half. They didn't! Roosters speed men kept them under pressure. Is it a lack of speed or urgency and over reliance on big forwards - any thoughts?

    Saw all but the first 5minutes of HM - they completely outclassed the Roosters. The smaller quicker players did very well towards the end of each half. Scored some good team tries. Still a bit too much arm grabbing in defence, expected at this level, particularly on one side of the dogs defence and as the bigger forwards were tiring. The dummy half Danny G was again a standout.

    iknow it was the first game but the forwards were terrible and looked so unfit. they were gassed after 10minutes holes galore up the middle. didn't win a play the ball. everything they did was in slow motion. the halves didn't go to good. probably cause the forwards got dominated. tough draw season could be over in the next 3 weeks if they keep playing like that

    And I'm pretty sure the roosters half back (Bailey Hayward) is a local boy from St George Dragons. Anyone confirm?

    Did the doggies appear to you , with the exception of Logan Dillon -a lot slower than the roosters - or was it they played with no urgency.
    One thing I noticed before the game was the contrast in the intensity and discipline of the warm up - Roosters extremely disciplined and responsive to the trainer.

    yeh your right besides Dillon who looks like hes got great speed the side looks very slow. how many penalties did they give away on the 5th tackle. like you said no discipline someone told me they have a few younger blokes in the side maybe there not up to it. long year for them I think

    See i cant understand this. If they are exceptional, yeh but these have come from an ordinary Matts 2017 team and it sounds like we're gonna do it tough again. Surely there were some u18s that deserved at least a few of hese spots.

    Jackson T was extremely good in Matts throughout last year - Picken was also good in the few games he played until injured. Both were strong defensively on Saturday but no opportunities in attack.

    I see they kept the same forwards except tatola lets hope hes got a big engine cause there forwards need something see they kept the halves and moved one to fullback. the fullbacks a bit unlucky getting moved to the wing he was the only one who showed some spark in attack last week

    Who knows. I know 3 from Keebra are playing MM this year (may have lost one to another club). Lost one of the NZ recruits for Jersey Flegg.

    The club has been useless and not given an update on the Flegg or Cup squad. Any idea which one bailed from NZ?
