round 1 is not gonna determine your season.

remember us in round 1 last year? destroyed by the dragons 40 odd points to 12 (and only 12 because of patty).

round 2 we put 40 something on the titans on the gold coast and then knocked off the eventual premiers the week after.

dragons play a little flatter and more diagonally with just a couple more crisp passes and we could find ourselves in a whole heap of trouble within 25minutes. their defence wasnt horrible, a try off a kick and then storm couldnt score for like an hour i think. 12 pts is not bad D.

Interesting we play the same 3 teams first up again this year as last year - that's kinda weird. Also, how did Saints end up getting 2 Monday night games in a row to start their season? I thought it was supposed to be spread more evenly than that. Bad luck for their fans, I hate Monday night games - I forget they're even on sometimes :lol:

I forgot it was on tonight too Flip. Not like me at all to forget a game's on. The only reason I remembered, was because one of my patients happened to mention it. I'am not a fan of Monday night footy either.

Luke wrote:One thing I've learnt over the last couple of seasons - don't bother basing a side's previous game to how they will play in the next game (unless the teams are the heavyweights). All the other teams are constantly up and down - you just don't know what kind of team is going to show up half the time. It always seems to happen to us as well - when a team plays bad the week before playing us they magically turn in the best side in the comp against us. Partly why I hoped the Dragons would win this week.
Yeah, it play's havoc with the tipping ;)

Let's not convince ourselves that there crap. We have to earn our 2 Competition points and not say to ourselves "on paper we will this game " cause such and such is missing and such and such is injured.
Last year 1st game of the year they spanked us for having the wrong attitude after getting out to a 12-0 lead.
I hope we turn up ready to play
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

OP was spot on. They looked like they just met one another. If I were a dragons fan I would be asking exactly what did they work on in the off season. You cannot compare our failure to execute in attack with their sheer lack of a decent plan.

Hopefully Marshall brings rocks to the game next week. He will look to lift against us.

Beware an embarrassed side.

They were woeful last night. Doesn't mean they will be woeful all year.

Melbourne were pretty poor also.

Koro looked awesome though.

Koro looked sharp didnt he?

Honestly we should go right up the guts with our big boppers and then run Siro and Kapow 2 at Bunji all day...he didnt wanna tackle last night.

I agree, if Benji brings his diamond's game,( he is bound to have one sometime) :roll: it will be a great test of wests-tigers defense mettle.
Get up and on him, no room to move, and he will chance his hand which, results in long floating passes toward the sidelines.

Basil, our rescue dog, is wondering when wests tigers will win 25 - 18 :D
