It was a pathetic performance and I expect a lot better.

Some players are excluded. Halatau and Lawrence are to me the exceptions. The rest of them should hang their heads in shame.

I find it amusing that fans expect our team, with a long history of being mentally fragile, to turn it all around in a summer camp under a new coach... its insane.

It was a bad night but it's probably the only poor 80 minute games this year. Nearly every team has them. Just put it down to experience and see what happens next week. Roosters are pretty good side.

Also, look at our roster and depth this year... how can people expect them to win every week? Fans on this forum and in for a long year if they get this upset every time we lose.

Any one know what the total nrl games is between the two sides? I bet Roosters are way up there on us. You can't teach experience.

If you don't get upset when we get flogged you're not normal, IMO.

This has a bearing but this team has a lot of plodders that are ineffective and until the club can move them on not much is going to change.

Jesus Christ. We were building in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. We'll still be building in 2016, 17 and probably 18 as well. People are sick of hearing it and rightfully so. The Sistine Chapel didn't take this long to build.

there is a difference between being upset, and carrying on like a moron.

Me too, funnily enough - I picked the Roosters with start, but there was just a teeny tiny hope in my heart for a better end to the week :(
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

And I'm carrying on like a moron because you disagree with my opinion?

Flog.

I never said you were a moron... you picked that boot up, sussed it out for size then put it on yourself. From your retort, seems you are a good judge though.

I'm not saying that Moses won't become a great player but he definately isn't up to 1st grade standard atm. He cracks under pressure too easily and the double movement in our 1st chance early in the game can't just be put down inexperience. It's a massive error at any level of the game. His kicking is quite frankly atrocious. Imo a kicking strategy must be different for different sides. Kicking non-stop torpedo kicks to RTS and Tupou was just plain stupid, that's there forte. I do feel that his defence is poor but so is Soward's and he is decent player. We should quite frankly have 2 forwards with him at all times when it comes to on the line defence. That or we should drop him back to NSW Cup for few games to gain his mojo again. I have seen impressive skill from him I just think he's beginning to lose confidence in himself as the season has progressed and the more mistakes he has made. All I seem to see him do of late is shake his head in disapproval

Oi

Instead of arguing about how bad the loss was and how much it hurt , how about coming up with some positives and ideas how we break this cycle

You both know your s*%t , put it to some good use for the better of our club

Win , lose or draw we still love em :sign:

You didn't have to say it. Who was carrying on like a moron in this thread then?
