It is always a tough game up here, let alone if you give up an 18-point start,
I was really disappointed with our first 20 minutes but we competed well after that. You are in for a tough night if you give 18 points start,
I couldn't see anything in the tackle, and even if there was, when Danny got his 18 weeks, he was hit high and then head-slammed and that made no difference at all,
We needed another outside back that we knew could play first grade. We thought we were one short there.
We have a very young group here and thought it would be good to spread the leadership a bit wider than just one person.
He had a couple of games where he was probably not at his best but that happens when young kids play a full season of first grade. We're very happy with Jake and thought he did a great job. He's only 21 and we think he is only going to get better,
It doesn't appear too serious, but you don't take any risks at this time of the season.
We looked a bit disjointed at times, but hopefully that will come.
Today was the first time we touched a footy all week.
Today was the first time we touched a footy all week,
It was a massive night and I talked to the guys about it today,
They didn't train as much last week so hopefully that might have had something to do with today.
There's no doubt about it - I am out of here,
He'll be as fresh as on Saturday night so that probably spells a little bit of danger for us,
Smithy is pretty well entrenched in origin now, which is a huge rap for a kid his age so I'd imagine if he keeps his head on his shoulders and keeps working hard, at some stage, he'll play for his country.
One of his great strengths is that he is always so consistent,
People forget Scott was close to our best and most consistent player at the start of the year and we just need him to get back to that,
But you know, we think we can match it with any team in the competition.
I know what he's capable of at this stage of his career and I know in the future he'll be capable of more.
It was a really tough 12 months for Greg. He had to cope with a lot and while we tried to lighten the burden as much as we could, the way he handled it all, it was a real credit to him. He is incredibly mature for his age.
I've only myself to blame. It would be easy for me to blame others but I have to look at myself.
