Think there was two on offer at the end of the first half wasn't there? Although they were 40 out.

Everyone around us at the game was gob smacked including Parra fans that when you need to score twice in such a short time and you have not scored once in 70 minutes, you take the 2. Bring it back to a converted try, puts pressure on parra. Then you work for a try, and a field gold maybe in extra time to win.
Is this inexperience in the captaincy from Woods, or was he off, or did the decision come from the sideline?
Well I don't think they had this much time to think about the decision
You have at least had a full day to think back and say they should have kicked

For me, they NEVER looked like getting a try yesterday.
At least with the 2 we could have grown that extra leg and dug deep

Fact of the matter is its too late, all in the past
Heres hoping for some wins moving forward

Taking the 2 at least would of been a step in the right direction , and then at least it puts pressure on Parra that one slip up means golden point

There's no way you take the 2. You need to score at least one try, the sooner you do so the better.

Taking the 2 when you are trailing by 8 behind with 10+ minutes on the clock leaves the opposition to much room to take the scenario back to square 1.

You have to be so cautious in defense as not to give away a penalty, and rushing in to stop a field goal attempt will leave the line vulnerable to a try.

It would make sense in the dire stages (within the last 5 minutes) to take the 2 on offer and then go all out for a try. But best case scenario you are really playing for extra time.

And Richards would most likely have kicked it. Missing his kick offs as well and sadly Rankin had been doing a lot less than the maligned Pat of last year, and he is not even kicking at goal for us.

Time to give A-C (the Flash) a shot on the left wing, second tier cap player or not. Sorry to go off topic, but WD just got me thinking what the hell is poor Rankin doing out there for us.
