TPJ NEEDS to be played at Prop. He is basically a shorter Sam Kasiano and we never played him on an edge.

I'd rather 40mins or quality impact from him than 65mins of him blowing his ass off on an edge and letting in soft tries. Which in turn, circles back to coaching... Hmmmm?

Throwing any youngsters like Kiraz or Toia into this current set up will do more harm than good. Maybe give them a game or two here and there but playing them for a long stint is more likely to shatter their confidence and it’s something they may never recover from. Playing in NSW Cup and dominating would be way more beneficial.
I agree. The only one that looks ready for me is probably Casey. Has all the simple attributes to be able to compete.

It doesn't matter who's there if we continue to cough up ball set after set. Because of this we get dominated in field position and don't even get a look in with good attacking ball. Two weeks straight we've barely stepped foot in the other team's 20 in the second half
And we complicate it by giving away penalties when they are in their own half, ensuring that most of the game is played no more than 40 metres from our line. How dumb do we have to be? Every time we have the ball, there is 80 metres to the other try line, and they get the ball surrendered back only three plays from a try.

I'd consider watching the game if that happened. As it is, I won't watch a Dogs game until the coach has gone, and we get some players who want to be Bulldogs, and feel ashamed to walk down the street if they lose a game.

Looks like that will be a few years, at least. if ever.

The form of the rookie should be the main factor if they get promoted to NRL or not.

You want these guys totally dominating lower grades before even thinking about it.

Too many times over the last few years its been the poor form of players in the NRL side that has been the deciding factor and its made it so much harder for the young players to establish themselves.

Its definetley hurt the progress and development of Averillo, BBO, Topine etc. On top of that Covid made a mess of lower grade game time.

Barrett needs to make changes if he wants to save his job. Bring in Toia and Kiraz for Dufty and Okunbor. Topine, Ava and RFM (apparently he was going to play) to the bench.

Toia
Naden
Kiraz
Schoupp
JAC
Burton
Flanagan
Vaughan
JMK (only option)
King
Jackson
TPJ
Thompson

Topine
Ava
RFM
Patolo

Honestly, we have a good core of players but these players constantly makes the same mistakes every week (Dufty, Okunbor, Waddell, JMK & Naden). Our squad depth is appalling and probably the reason why they are selected.
