i dont think mannah was on the field- mightve been peats the captain

but i think defs heard watbro say "f it, let's just go for it" and then vossy apologised for the curse words.
Definitely heard that, though wasn't sure if it was Watmough or Sandow. Obviously getting impatient with the trainers and their own petty attack.

They go in at 8-0 and I reckon we would of panicked and lost that game

Anytime you get a chance to lead by more than one try with a high percentage play you take it . Period , End of story
I agree they should have taken the kick - but maybe instead of panicking it might have woken us up from the lethargy.
As much as I prefer winning to the alternate option I would prefer we didn't have to wait until the last 10 minutes to do it.

The Dragons won a comp on taking the 2 on offer.
We have one of the best kickers in the comp, And we NEVER take the 2!!
- It irks me to no end.
I'm all for backing yourself, But you gotta be realistic sometimes as well...
Surely, With Pattys ability with the boot - We should be seriously considering every penalty inside 40!!

On our defense - It has been great so far and a really good change, I was more confident they'd hold out that try then I would've been in previous years. Also good was that Taylor mentioned the main focus before the game was defense, and that's exactly what we saw. Very refreshing to see words being turned into action which never used to happen in past years.

A bit off-topic, but the other thing I noticed was that game against the Eels was exactly the type we would normally lose in the past. The game that's an armwrestle until a team runs away with it at the end. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.

Very good point. But tbh, I was confident that we'll win after half time even though history shows we lose these sorts of games.
