I must be watching the wrong game if anyone thinks Goodwin went alright last night. He defused one bomb and made one good tackle from memory. He makes a clear break with Inglis on the inside unmarked and Merrit on the outside, yet he dummies and gets tackled - that isn't a good centre. He is a winger, at best. I'm sure Farrell in the same position would have done a whole lot better.
Lima was strong tonight, his running and defence were great - he dropped a couple of balls. George was the same, played well and looks the goods this year. Gave away two silly penalties which is a blight. Our discpline last night was very poor.
Sutton was the standout player, really impressive. Peats is a strong defender but I don't like him from dummy half, service too slow.
The first two tries were well thought out. The way we set up for those tries, I thought, could capitalise later on in the game with the ball going to the runners instead of kicking. The sharks defence would have been wary rushing up early and would have sat back a little, making this option a good one. Didn't really see that at all.
Overall an ill-displined performance but managed to win.

Well if Goodwin played so bad they'll have to pick Corrigan.

Walker, Buckett and Waddell.

Both tries from kicks!
Sutton continues to play as a forward & does not have the necessary speed or the skill as a 5/8 to set his backline alight.
This is why we are struggling to service our outside backs with quality ball & hence the reliance on kicking.
Carney created more opportunity for his backs in a side that is struggling with all sorts of internal strife..If he had been our No.6 we would have had a much slicker & creative service to our outside men & not the necessity to rely on kicking.
I agree that JS played well but we can't continue to play this style of RL if we wish to attain the highest result!!

He isn't a centre. That's his problem.

Well if Madge thinks he is a centre, he is a centre.

Old news now but Tupou was not square and hand his hands on the guy playing the ball,,,,Chicken and the egg,,,,but look should not have grabbed at him ,,,although almost every play the ball something similar happens,,,,,

Goodwin is NOT a centre---he is a backup utility[mainly wing] player---we have better players than him to make up our backline.To me he was a player obviously out of position. 
Doyen

Doyen

That try will be knocked back every time on video evidence---you just don't do it when your team looks like scoring;which we were.
This type of thinking doesn't happen with Issac,unfortunately--it's a definite problem!!
He's the type of player that will win you a GF but also lose one!!

If you're going to use a SC that's the situation.It did save a try!!

I think you nailed it with GOODWIN---he is a winger AT BEST!
If you think Peats's service is too slow you'd have to say that JS is in the same category!!

I agree with you Goodwin was out of position and you could tell that by the way he played the game in attack & defence.

I agree with Doyen & Saggy, Goodwin is not a centre.

We're all screwed now.

2 points is 2 points, we would have lost that game last year!

It's obvious he's not a centre and should be on the wing, he's a finisher.

But to try and blame him for Gordons try is a bit much considering all the missed tackles that lead up to it.

Gosh, what an unexpected triumvirate 
Doyen

We are a very special triumvirate as was the
Pompey,Crassus & Caesar one & also Augustus,Mark Antony & Lepidus.

The Great Gladiator of Sth Sydney fame was friends with such!!!!

Doyen, we all know about your feelings about JS at 5/8 but surely you must agree that he played well the other night. I don't think he stifles our attack. Would like to see some more offloads and his supports running into holes rather than the man..
Goodwin slipped in the Gordon try but he was not to blame, there was some dreadful awful defence prior and after his slipping which should've prevented a try. It was his other play that worried me. Corrigan is not the answer at centre, McQueen would be a better option, he has a step and has a bit more pace than people give him credit for....The young bloke mentioned might be too early for him but has a lot of people wrapping him so who knows.
I'm not sure why Madge is sticking with Goodwin at centre. Swapping him with Everingham is also not the answer as Everingham's efforts in the centres last year weren't too flash either. Perhaps he is giving Goodwin another chance. I have a lot of faith in the coach. I see King is back with the Bears this week and maybe on the cards for a call up, if goes ok, against the Dogs.
