too indisciplined in broken play, like people have said. a shift out then back in left us clutching at air as did a simple offload.

need to play structured in the face of unstructured/flashy football. a line will stop anything if we make the tackles (not too hard to do when its not 1 on 1).

perhaps we're too committed to the shift wide, players in the centre shouldnt just stand and watch the ball they need to reform that defensive line during that shift out rather than leaving half gaps occasionaly.

only difference is who we play, first two weeks crappy teams then dogs and souths, last week the eels who were very off and tonight the warriors who played perhaps their best game this year (although thats not really saying much) and at home

attack is getting better. defence was a bit off tonight, but understandable given the unstructured attack of the warriors and the mountain of field position.

Good points.
The other thing about who we play is where we've played them. Only 2 home games in first six rounds and one was bulldogs at anz so not much of a home ground there. I think a 3 from 6 start with 4 away games against decent opposition is a great effort.
yeah true, i made a thread about our lack of home games to start the season. 4 home games in the first 12 rounds and theres a bye in there too

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23384&hilit=home

if we can finish on around 50% by the start to middle of origin we should be easily able to come home strong if our team is somewhat intact and end up around 6-7th.

we get 6 home games and a bye between round 13 and round 21 inclusive. thats where we need to make a real charge. keep in the fight ladderwise, keep our team intact and we can easily win 5 or 6 of the 8 games in that period.

Great effort,hard to be critical when the Warriors had 60% of ball and all the favourable decisions go their way,yet they could still only manage to close the game out in the final minutes.

Attitude is very very good. You can see that in the defense which is the vital aspect when you have a younger squad and especially when you have two young halves defending in the frontline.
At this rate, I'm confident we can make the 8. We'll at least be thereabouts in the final rounds. We've won the matches we should have this year and posed very good questions in the matches we didn't. That's exactly what you want from a developing team.
The halves are defending much better this season which is just as much individual as it is defensive patterns. Their attacking games will come on the back of that.
We're developing some strike on the edges with Lovett & Sironen. Simona looks classy when he gets early ball.
We're playing attacking percentage football. Working hard in defense, supporting ball runners and looking to attack the edges after making space in the middle.
I'm just happy with the way we're going. Patience, hard work & trust in the plan and good days are ahead.

Our defence was solid mostly but at times was as bad as it ever has been in the history of this club. I thought it was an ugly game reminiscent of U/20's all attack and little defence. Neither side played good Rugby League and both coaches should be filthy.

That said, the effort was there for 3/4 of the game and for a bunch of young blokes that's all we can ask. Long season ahead...

Like the curates egg it was good in parts.For 60 minutes of the game we looked ok but the 20 minutes in the first half when we fell to pieces in defence was a disaster.However considering the lack of ball and having all of the decisions go against us it was a decent performance

Blame the refs all you like , they weren't great but some glaring deficiencies became clear tonight

JT now needs to try and counteract them
Apart from creating broken play from offloads and capitalising on it, what deficiencies would you say became clear?

Warriors didn't win by doing that, they won by holding the ball 94%+ in the first half and due to that their big men and momentum they got the better of us.

Week in week out its clear we generally don't chase the bombs and let the opponent catch and try and tackle them at the sametime which looks to be a defensive structure tatical play.

Happy is right with turning the ball inside though. That killed us as they made huge metres when they pulled that off.

Overall we are definitely a better structured team but allot of us have to accept the days of brilliant attacking football may be over for a while. We are going to grind out wins and only the odd flash of the past.
Refs were shocking again tonight, time for AI to replace them!

Yeah the loss would've been a lot easier to swallow if we were given the same leeway as they were. What gives the refs the right to be so one-sided at this level? I would've thought that 'how to adjudicate a game fairly' would be basic learning in ref's school. I'm so naive :roll:
