I thought he was good until it was crunch time. He did lose it then though.

Very poor effort to get run down like that. Need to learn how to close out games. Can't see much happening for WT this year, feel it is going to be a very long year.

Its definitely a good option. Sue was great up the middle.
But he has been very good in the back row also , leave him there

Woods will be back next week

We need to win games, it's no good coming second in a two horse race.

Tigers player kicked it into the back of another tiger so set started from 0 (i believe)

Thanks mate
Bill Harrigan on Triple M saying that's the wrong interpretation of the rule. Has to be a scrum, not a zero.

Look i didn't watch the game but kept reading the updates and i'm watching it now , think we rode our luck as far we could by the sounds of it .
IMO Lovett's Try was a forward pass of Brooks the 1st Try and then obviously got a lucky intercept and raced the length of the field to score .
But by the sounds of things sounds like a few controversy to come out of that game as happy said with the Teddy Try , they are showing it now and fair dinkum Hodgkinson takes a dive .
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.

Gotta wonder why all defenders don't just run into the decoy now. Would be a penalty on every backline move.

Seriously for such a young side. I'm seeing huge positives in our future. We're holding strong with the good sides and I actually think we helped Parra win tonight from the effort last week. Disappointing result, but good signs for the future.

Also great to see the spine starting to click in attack. Our defence has also been a massive difference this year. Closing out games needs work though, but that's a work in progress.

Two negatives I have is the refs failure to consistently fail to blow a penalty (especially in golden point) when the game is on the line. They look scared to call the game if it's on the line. Moses being taken out comes to mind here.

The other was the Tigers fans tonight...ridiculously quiet. All I could here was Bulldogs over and over. I know they're nutbags but a few people pointed it out.

Tigers fans could take some lessons from the burrow, and dogs fans and make a bit more noise to bring the boys home.

You don't normally get two shots at winning a game, Brooks had all the time in the world with an open set of uprights 73rd min, that was our moment and we didn't take it. My biased memory tells me Tigers are one of the worst teams at grabbing the vital chance.

Also gotta say Farah really mucked up the last few sets, once we got within a few to go, despite the Graham (or Tolman) offside, he should have just got rid of it for a kick, not fooled around trying to milk the penalty. He milks so hard now, refs just ignore him. He went the wrong way two other sets, we were having hit-ups out wide on tackle 4, how is a bloke supposed to take a decent shot if we don't cart it up the middle?
I reckon we left the fg too late in the set that Taupau knocks on

It looked perfect after Ava's hit up and we got too close to the tryline after Taupau's hit up

God, that knock on from Keith was bad. Just when you need some veteran leadership, he drops it cold.

Farah has an excellent track records of screwing up when the pressure is on

It was terrible. Taupau had a poor carry at the wrong time again as well.

Our fans were very quiet tonight... Didn't hear the Tigers chant at all.... Dogs fans were definitely louder than us

Have to agree with such a young inexperienced team Farah needs to take control,trying to milk penalties and poorly I might add doesn't cut it and taking poor options in general when the heat is on.
It's a game we should win 99% of the time being up by 18 with 20 or so to go but the kids will learn from that hopefully.
