No idea what's going wrong, really like Tony and wish him well.
Our forwards are not right, and having your best two half backs out is never going to help, although Abdull hasn't hit the nights this season.

We're in a bad spot and confidence is shot.

We just don't defend correctly, our line speed is terrible we just don't pick the opposition's play and for God knows how many seasons our defence between second row and centre is appalling.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.

However, expansive rugby isn't going too well with four points in three matches...

After today's results is it start to look over our shoulders
What a time for us to be shown again on national TV next week
Yes Tony Smith has done his job but has he now undone all the good work?

Do you see any tension between the two statements I have made bold?

RL fans, and tbf people in general, tend struggle with shades of grey. Rovers fans will mostly take this story at face value, because Willie Peters is going to be part of the ‘Rovers family’, so Dan Ferris will be assumed to be at fault and a ****.

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/the-bu ... yijr0.html

Unless we start 2023 slowly, in which case the fans currently taking issue with some of Smith’s minor oddities of behaviour will no doubt label Peters a shortarse or start spouting cod psychology about small man syndrome.

I’m still just about willing to buy the argument that the slump in Rovers’ form following shortly after the mid-morning of the burning bridges is a coincidence, but its price rises with each poop performance. Fairly or not, once Smith had done that, the relationship was going to get a bit transactional. If we’d have continued winning, people would have assumed Paul Lakin was wrong about COVID vaccinations or Brad Takairangi applying GTA road etiquette to real life or whatever the **** it was, and wondered at his temerity in disagreeing with Tony Smith. But it’s gone the other way, pretty precipitously.
