    Actually thought Issac was playing for the Titans last night.

      he doesnt read any of our comments. would love to see him banned cause hes just here for a w ind up. iku banged his missus and hell never stop hating him. guy is clueless and needs to go.

        Re Ikuvalu....he is all heart and would put his body on the line any time to win the trick. Yes he can drop one , but geez he can score for you when some guys wouldn't. A real Rooster. We need to get behind him (and all the boys for that matter) and stop rubbishing individuals. Now more than ever.

            Looked like he re-injured his ankle so he might be a doubt anyway.

              And played with it busted for most of the night. Because of that we did not have to do a massive shuffle if he went off.

              He is SKD v. II, but on minimum wage so I am not sure what more you could expect.

                Play Iku at centre in defence, replaced by Keighran on the wing.
                Play Iku on the wing in attack.

                    A lot of pea hearts who bash the players at every chance they get it’s an embarrassment. All these guys are busting an arse with an unprecedented injury toll and people are shitting on backup depth options because they’re not Eric Grothe snr reincarnated

                      Opposition coaches know it,opposition players know it,comentators know it and Rooster supporters know it.....Fumbles Ikuvalu is the weak link in the Easts team

                      last night Ikuvalu errors resulted in 2 Titans tries...his miss in defence in the final seconds almost gave victory to the Gold Coast

                      Notice how Ikuvalu was the one to take the second hit up from kickoffs.?...so very predictable

                      Ever since he debuted in 2018 Ikuvalu has had error filled games

                      People focus on the scoring of spectacular tries...but what about all the stuff ups??

                      The Solution
                      if Easts want to have any hope of winning next week...Drop Ikuvalu and replace him him with Dale Copley...a solid reliable right winger, who defends well

                      if Ikuvalu plays against Manly,Hasler will exploit the weakness......

                      A short kickoff against Manly might even work as a bit of variation

                      PS How good is Sam Walker last night ?...cometh the hour..cometh the man
                      Again with the short kick offs

                        TheArrow try, it was a shit pass from Lam, more his fault than Ika.

                          Based on what BB? Have you seen Iku play centre?

                            I thought so too. Why throw a spiral pass to a guy who’s a meter or two away from you. Just bob it up. My son learnt this playing for Bondi United Under 11s this season.

                              He was a centre in NSW Cup from memory.

                              I'm more concerned with Keighrans defence from last night.

                                He got centre of the year in NSW Cup one year. But I’m assuming BB has never actually seen him play centre.
