The goal attempts for Moses were sideliners but he went close for a youngster.

Of course it has an effect, to say otherwise is laughable. Just how much it affected our performance is another matter, with short turnaround and conditions also playing their parts it's contribution is hard to quantify, but could well have been magnified by them.

The blunt reality is that Titans performed better than wests - tigers. The score board tells us that.
Both teams had to cope with conditions, time of the game etc.

As I said in the live game thread, these are legitimate considerations but hardly grounds for shipping 30 points in 25 minutes. And even with a quick turnaround time if you're buggered after a quarter of the game you've got issues. I wonder what some of you would have said if JT had have brought in state cup guys who had a longer break to counter this.

I love you Mac

But I'm guessing the combination of your 5 year olds drool and your bad wind have come back to haunt you late bro

only a play on words as GNR$ repeated his post re taking in on the chin, no harm meant

Alright guys, no more personal remarks to one another please. And no disguised swearing either, I'd rather not lock threads at this stage of the season. The Titans got us comfortably last night - no excuses.

The tigers faded quicker than a set of curtains during daylight savings. Qlder's are fresher as they are not exposed to the sun as long.

The Titans looked fitter and faster.

Is that because they are superior athletes or have better players?

Don't think so.

Fatigue = Poor decisions, dropped balls, lethargy.

From 2015 and so far this year the teams with a 5 day turnaround lose (>75%).

This is why the NRL has said 2016 is the last year any team will have a 5 day turnaround because of player welfare.

Here's a link to a recent article:
