    I believe part of the problem at the club and especially within the halves is due to the absence of Foran..combined with the post Hasler clean out. Will be interesting to hear Pays after match comment and outlook moving forward.

    Foran is an experienced Premiership winning half and no matter what he and Pays relationship is like off the field, Pay probably still trusts his ability far more than anyone else on the field. I think Pay is is just way too fearful with some of the youngsters because of their lack of experience but that's going to have to change if he wants to keep his job imo.

    I'm pretty sure he copped a shit pass because if you look at the line he was actually inside Napa right shoulder constituting a obstruction... That play for me highlighted Lewis being scared to take a hit and throwing hospital passes and or shit passes out to no one as he did last week

    Joey loved his pingers and probably dropped the ball because of it. We played better near the end of the game, i was more happy with this loss than last weeks lack of attack. at least we looked more dangerous at the end of the game

    Was terrible in that 1st half but he looked more comfortable when Lewis got hooked and his ball service was quite crisp for the most part. But those errors..... sheesh!

    His first half was ordinary - second half was so much better playing a more dominant role.

    So, was the experienced Josh McGuire scared when he dropped the ball very similar to how Wakeman did?

    The guy dropped the ball that's it, like many players do each game. Anyone that laces up boots and plays NRL is far from being scared. He had an off game until Lewis got hooked and started taking control and showed some good signs that warrant him and Averillo to start as our halves pairing next week.

    When I watch the game, I get bipolar and use language that I normally wouldn't AND go over the top lol.

    Having said that it was a poor unforced error, to go with a bog average first half.

    Yes he did look better when Lewis got the hook.

    I used "scared" probably because that's what me and my mates would say when we played and some one dropped the ball before getting smashed. I know he's not scared, just my irrational brain going over time every time I watch the dogs.

    Nice and calm now lol.

    I know when I watch a reply of games they never seem to play as bad as I first thought watching it live.

    Its very easy to get caught up in the emotion of it all.

    It was really only game 2 for Wakeham. He is very green but has potential and is a natural half. It is unfair to compare Lewis who has been poor after a few seasons. Give Wakeham a chance to see if he is up to first grade before throwing him to the wolves.
