    Definitely not a Scott Prince Issue.

    The ball movement of the titans was simply childish. Instead of buying another player they should invest in a backs mentor like Matt Johns as an example.

    Mate you cannot blame tomane for not stopping robertsons second try. He was on the ground after trying to help prince takle matai, who also ran straight over the top of mead, there is no way it was his fault. Otherwise he had a terrible second half and bodene gets the spot any day of the week. Although taga and chalky can hit well, they both offer very little go forward in attack, taga really needs to work on it. Brown made no massive mistakes but he is bland and doesnt offer anything more than some terrible passes.

    Matai went straight through Joey in Robertsons 2nd try. He had issues tonight but to be dropped for it it will be terrible for the young fella. I feel for him cause every player knows how they played.

    My bad, just watched the replay. Tomane just fell off matai and he was too far past mead do do anything.. Still once the ball was out of matai's hands, tomane had little chance of beating robertson to the ball. I hope he redeems himself though. He is a good player but he had a very off night.

    I'm for giving him another shot. Sure, he had some issues but he had plenty of better-credentialled mates.

    We need Thompson for 80mins but from the backrow.

    I enjoy Tonga and Thompson in the centres. They're never going to score 100 tries, but you know that defensively they're up to scratch

    The bloke had his first game with the squad... He will come good, his defense (especially one on ones) was solid!

    He needed some better ball, kicks for him weren't in the right positions either.

    Give him another run, Thompson back into the pack to bolster it.

    Well Tomane did not cost us the game.

    I agree, give him another shot, this was his first game in first grade in like a year?

    Should have been even more reason for him to perform and step up.


    IMO, he did cost us the game.

    His stupid move to try tackle Hopoate right in front of Zillman lead to Robertson's first.

    And then his stupid penalty dragging Robertson out lead to the second of Robertson's try

    he should be on the wing outside micheals nobody in the titans can match tomane in the air and somone his size running the ball back will be scary good

    Back UP Super MATT, Give the guy a go....As we all know coming from Q.Cup into the NRL against a well credentialled backline after a long abscence is not ideal. Have a bit of faith in the bloke he will come good. Our backline has not fired at all this year and when you are getting slow ball out wide this just compounds the problem of allowing the defence to adjust and negate anything we are throwing at them. He is strong and will come good, with some fast ball he will destroy backlines and with some support he will be even better...

    Seems like mixed reaction to Tomane but it doesn't really matter how we feel because as long as Thomson's fit, he'll get the center spot

    I agree mate, unfortunately one game back isn't a fair go for Tomane but Thompson has the edge for as centre spot right now.
