    No time for popularity in this game, as much as I'm sure it hurt Robbo to drop him he's made the right call.
    sad but true

    Hall is on a summer holiday, if he plays as good as his sun tan then maybe were onto something,but Morris and Ikuvalu are both better options.

    Play Ball Infidel Hall is the man...but Or wonder coach shouldve started Iku at center in stead of Aubbo...our ruck defence was terrible and has been last few games.

    Looks like Robbo thinks otherwise

    Hall starting at 5 this week, Iku named at 19

    Hall has already shown he's a better defender than ikuvalu as well

    Yep, there were 2 occasions where Manu should have given it to Hall instead of going himself. The second time probably cost us, Hall would have scored for sure.

    IMO it's hard to judge who's what when you play with such a severely depleted team. I actually thought we played the better game than Penrith despite however, we didn't have any tries in us.

    Why not? Rather than blame players, I think it was just a feature of our overall team. Our depleted forwards weren't as dominant so our depleted playmakers had very little space/time to work with and our depleted backline. Nobody had a great day at the office. Best to just learn our lessons and put some of these games behind us IMO. They don't give much insight into what players are capable of...

    In the 2 games Hall has played for us he hasn’t looked out of place, and last game I thought he was one of our best. It took Jarred a while to play at his best after an acl, and if this is the case Hall should improve as the year goes on

    Yep, that’s about right
    however
    Trent wants to keep his wall intact and Aubo is a keystone

    Matt's done a terrific job and would have thought he was big odds to play much firsts this year with our depth of wingers.

    Halldog has proved his fitness now, so that's probably it. He will only go back with the Bears if Robbo puts Bmoz ahead of him.

    I want Hall and it seems Robbo does as well.
