Agree Marsters should have been sinbinned. What was Croft thinking with the restart? There is never anyone standing behind him at restarts. Surely that has to be the last straw. Croft has no confidence, he must go back to Qld Cup to get some confidence back.

Having said that, the rest of team with dropped balls is shocking.

I don’t see how being dropped gains Croft any confidence it just increases the spotlight and the pressure. But yeah he needs a spell.

By the way Curtis Scott is our unnoticed hero. Each ordinary game the team plays, Scott is trying his bloody heart out, he seems to be trying to infect others with his energy and enthusiasm. Well done Curtis

Yep I agree but who do you replace with... I watch the replay of the qld cup game on fox on Wednesday and the halves from East's played all over Jacks. Massive head ache for Bellamy

What was that friggin' kick?

Croft's, not Slater's.

If you can't kick the distance, don't *lima lima lima duck*' kick it.

Shocking. Last tackle, one point down and 20 out but Croft stands 20 metres to the right of the posts

The reason I think his confidence will increase in Qld Cup because he is more likely to play himself into form at that level. I don't see how the spotlight and pressure increases on him at Qld Cup, 75% of the Rugby league public wouldn't even know what the Qld Cup is.

Agree, need to bring Justin Olam into the side. We are struggling to score one try a game we need some X factor in attack. I can't believe Tonumaipea didn't pass that ball to Vunivalu when he made that break.

Jacks doesn't do anything good or bad. I understand wanting him in but he doesn't fix what's going on right now. We've only scored one try the last two games. That's on everyone.

Pathetic.

Storm gifted that to the Tigers.

Bellamy got it all wrong today, dropping B.Smith who would have revelled in the last 10 minutes here, benching NAS for so long, why carry Stimson to give him 6 minutes at the end of the game? Croft was shit and isn’t up to this level yet, we bombed a few chances to win that game, at 10-4 up Young has an unmarked Suli and dummy’s and bombs a certain try, this team is just playing dumb and selfish and have shown no heart or desire, Cameron Smith gave all he had and no one wanted to go with him.

I think at this point it's more about putting Croft back to reserve grade and get his game back.
