Agreed. And its why we have not played semis so many times in our existence. Our club needs to learn to hate losing and to compete to win like 17 Greg birds or Michael Ennis's.

This. Always a good sign of how ready a team is to compete when they come sticking up for the smaller guys and aren't worried to throw in a bit of niggle themselves. We seemed ready to play but not ready to match niggle for niggle. We have no grub in us and it cost us.
Compare the reaction to the Lodge high shot to anything that happened throughout the game.

Moses gets choke slammed and our players do NOTHING, Lawrence gets KO'd, still NOTHING. One of their guys gets a slightly high shot and they all charge in. Pretty much tells the story for me.

Couldn't agree more. Every half in every team will be targetted thats a given. Look at what happened to Thurston a couple of weeks back. Our forwards haven't been the same since the loss v Canberra. Even then Sue got face slapped by FPN, Tapau was standing right next to him when it happened & niether of them did anything.

If anything was going to change in our team from now on I'd like our boys to send out a clear message to the rest of the comp. If they're going to try & rough up brooks/moses or any Tiger for that matter then they WILL be smashed themselves next time they carry the ball up.

We have a big enough pack. The likes of Keithy, Woods, Sue, Tapau, Lodge, Ava, Siro, etc need to stand up now.

Enough is enough.
