    I like Hop at centre, think he loses a bit of potency with all that is required at fullback.

    Yeah myself included I think leave DWZ for now but if anyone is to go to the back it’s probably Hoppa for his silky skills.

    I would put Meaney there or even give Averillo a go there. Averillo would handle fullback i think. Hope he is in next weeks team.

    I don't think it matters who else. Pay can see out his contract and we need to plan for someone else. With our cap in a better position we will be able to get interest. Kev Waters, Toovey, Demetriou, Flannagan or someone in England....literally anyone

    That whole 'we'll carry the momentum from the end of 2019 into 2020' thing hasn't really worked out.

    Hoppa and potency don’t belong in the same sentence

    Agreed, I know it’s not Pay dropping the balls but I think our error count is high because we’re constantly under pressure, and the coaching, game plan (or lack thereof) has to bear some blame. . We lose the ruck, we get dominated in the middle, and then when we have the ball we don’t ask questions of the defense. Our kicking game is absolutely awful and has been for a long time.

    Did you even watch the game or did you have this saved from last week or last year? He literally hooked the halfback...

    I know he probably could but I think Averillo and Wakeham could be a an awesome halves paring. I don’t want to eff that up right now it could be something good we need to give it a go.

    Bro that’s what I was thinking ... Stimson struggled hooked ... Lewis struggled (after the first 20) then hooked... coach had a go tonight no doubt.

    - Walters has said he only wants to coach Queensland - he's desperate to win another Origin series having lost the last two.
    - Demetriou has signed a long term extension with Soufs to take over from Bennett from 2022

    So they are both out

    - Toovey hasn't coached in more than 5 years - and after Des I just don't think we want any more Manly syndrome at Belmore - especially if he's going to give his mates a nice superannuation top-up on the Dogs (Foran, Williams)
    - Flanagan cannot head coach until 2022 under his current parole and I'd vote against any Bulldog board that wanted to employ that cheating grub anyway

    So England it is!
    Ben Anderson is coming through but not sure how good he is and there would be screams of nepotism if he got a gig anyway!

    No, she's the Chair, not the CEO or Head of Recruitment.
    You don't even have an opinion on an alternative?

    ye but it's house and her ass at the next elections, literally Joe blow would beat this ticket, the long slow approach will not cut it anymore for rialled up fans sick of mediocrity

    I've got plenty of opinions but not gonna bother listing them as the cheerleaders would get their knickers in a knot

    It'll come down to how 2021 goes. We can't continue on this same path after three years of waiting. If we're not contenders for a top eight position they're most likely gone. Maybe they could secure a top coach then to give them some more time too.
