Best win of the season?

Post by larrycorowa » Sun 18 May, 2014 9:50 pm

I know it was against one the bottom team but i'm calling it our best win of the season based on:
1. we were expected to win
2. opposition was desperate
3. we were playing in a hostile environment
4. many ex-tiger players played out of their skins
5. we were 10 down with 25 mins to play
6. we were rusty with new combinations and players lacking match fitness and touch
7. opposition played well and took their scoring opportunities
8. we had to grind hard last 20mins

also our rookie half played a major role and we had 4 (tedesco, sironen, gavet, fulton) of our top 13 out and we played with Anasta who is a 6pt handicap

Absolutely not...

It was an awful win, our attack struggled, we gave up too many meters in defense and had too much arm grabbing which lead to numerous missed tackles.

We got the 2 points which is great but almost everything else was so-so or poor. Farah and Brooks had some good moments but the last 10mins of the match saw Farah take some stupid options that a better team would've punished us with. Brooks is playing ok but needs to attack both sides of the field.

Our attack inside the 20m is quite poor, too many ineffective settling hit ups and not enough bodies in motion or attacking lines ran.



The best win of the season was the game against Souths imo.

we ambushed souths...they lost inglis in first 10mins, we were up and about, Tedesco was killing it. Winning ugly and without key players is important for where we are at as a team.

Except for two comp points, their was not a lot to crow about. We had enough ball in the first half to win by a mile, we got a great run of penalties and we got more than our fair share of line ball calls.

Iam happy with the win,Iam happy their are no major injuries, Iam happy Farah is back and I thought Brooks turned around two very very poor games with a very strong game,but as for the game I think we played pretty average and would have been cleaned up by the better teams, but at this stage of the season its about winning and we did that

Either Manly or Titans in terms of how we played in the 80 minutes.

Eels and Sharks were scrappy but gritty, Souths was great but Inglis being out really gave us the upper hand. Cowboys was a nice win too.

also, we weren't expected to win.

I believe we have only been faves to win (by the TAB) ONCE this year which was Titans when we lost. Eels were faves, sharks were faves, manly, roosters etc. etc.

Winning ugly are the great wins. The comeback was great. This was always going to be tough - not too mention it was an away game - those wins are the kind of wins that get you in the 8.

Certainly far from our best win this year. We just squeaked through but if Fifita plays, we lose.

I thought the win against Manly was our best - I can't remember the last time we thumped them like that! Also, the win against Parra was special too, as we had so many players out and still managed to win, against a team which is on a real high this season. Saturday's win was plucky, but lucky.

A win is a win! I actually thought when we got back to the lead we could have gone on with it...

But considering we lacked completions, and made plenty of errors we still managed to make hundreds more metres than they did, and I thought we won the forward battle.

So it was a fairly gritty performance to come out on top. Those sort of wins were usually beyond us the last couple of years.

Manly. We punished them. Was probably the best game I've seen by our colours in a long time.

Manly's win last night against Newcastle was very similar to our win against Sharks. Very important win for Manly and very important win for Wests Tigers
