Lam tried moving Jackson Hastings to fullback in 2021 and it never worked - surprised he's going down that route again when Hardaker is there.


Didn't Moylan start out as a full back though? Three main problems with moving Hardaker there now are that his pace isn't great, nor is his ball playing ability to be an extra half like O'Brien. It would also see Chamberlain in the starting 17, and he's struggled recently

Correct , Moylan made his name in NRL at Full Back. The way we play , and I said similar at the start of last year is Lam likes an extra half coming into the line at Full Back .

Hardaker gives more grunt than finesse and I’m happy keep Zak at 3.

Not sure how many assists o Brien had last season but I would wager more than Reynolds which is probably why he will go with McNamara at half back until Gaz is back.

What a bloody game. Mistakes but 100% effort and actually robbed as a clear knock-on on the ground in the tackle immediately before the last try. How the touch judge missed it is poor.
2 worries, Mulhearn did not come back on and Dwyer holding an arm limp after a tackle in the last minute.

Every time this guy refs us there are confusing and bad decisions made. Glaring miss by the officials that cost us again. If that was the other way, he would have definitely seen it.

Are you saying the referee is corrupt?

Simple explanation, he made the mistake of running up field with his back to play rather than backing away. The TJ should have spotted it but is he corrupt as well?

Agreed.

The glaring bad decisions he has made when refereeing us speaks for its self. Why has he got his back to the play when a player is in possession and in the process of being tackled and where was the touch judge looking. I am not the only one on here that has complained about this referee.

That was incredibly frustrating. We really should've been out of sight before they scored their second try. Some poor play by our half backs really cost us. And Dwyer also made one or two ropey decisions.

It is par for the course, criticising referees is the easiest course of action, it means you can ignore the missed tackles, dropped balls, wrong choices, etc. It is always the referee’s fault. In the move that followed the “knock on” how many missed tackles were there?

The players saw the clear and obvious knock on by the Warrington player and expected the referee to blow the whistle. He didn't which was down to the incompetence of the officials. The players should have played to the whistle, but it is not fair on the players blame them rather than excuse the officials for such a poor decision at a crucial point in the match. If it had been 'sent upstairs' the try would have been disallowed.
