I am too busy to read whole thread but just occurred that maybe Robbie did not take at field goal due to his knee operation?

The problem is, it stops being 50/50 when it gets beyond that, when teddy gets ko'd and the storm continue on and score whilst nothing happens. Even a penalty normally was warranted but no.... Not with the tigs... It's just painful, I'll shut up now cause the Mrs is upset that I'm livid... Lol enjoy lads, thanks for the vent!
Hahaha, we're all united by one thing, being passionate about our Club. Everyone's entitled to a one hour recovery period after a shattering loss.
Hear hear mate, cheers for the understanding. Till next week I guess!

With all these near losses and our goal kicking successes at record lows, I wonder why we do not play the percentage football and take all the easy two points when on offer. There was a late opportunity when we had the scores at 12-10 to go for the goal but went for the six and it did not come off. In the end we would not have needed golden point.

It was a halves job to be in position the entire set, yet someone elses to choose the moment. Was it second tackle? that defensive line should have been tested for nerves first. They would all have had one eye on the possible kicker, we had the advantage.

Not Robbies fault for the loss.

Great effort and eventually we will start winning these types of games. My only criticism was the amount of bombs we put up that did not have any kick chasers. But otherwise great effort.

As I said before , it was tackle 2 , what was the rush ?
Even though Farah is no longer the captain , he's shown poor leadership IMO .

I thought we played pretty well with an understrength side. The team played with passion and determination. Moses would have to be the worst general play kicker in the competition. At least Brooks varies it but Moses overlong directionless kicks put no pressure on the opposition. There is no way he is coached to do this. He just shouldn't be kicking. Felise and Carr both did well in their first games in the top grade

Dont think I am negating your point of view, I agree to an extent with what you are saying...

I credit Robbie tonight, when we were doing it tough he didnt ruck punch, he played through our halves, and we made metres. I give him massive props for putting the ego aside for the team benefit. He played well.

The other side of the coin is that the halves had to communicate their position at that point of the game, Robbie had to know where they were if play broke down and it was an option worth exploring... but it needed to be evaluated seeing as we had tackles in hand, a whole set almost. I dont hate on Moses for missing, we have all seen many a playmaker fail, Smith himself tonight an example. I blame Robbie for the pass as much as I blame Moses for not summing up the pressure he was under and taking the tackle. Difference is Robbie had more time in hand, still not their fault alone.

We play a game of extremes. Its either Robbie ball, or halves ball... no grey area. We need to find grey. You may think this is Farah hate, but as a senior player he needs to take their information on board, calculate, then make his decisions.... all at high speed.

Robbie passed him the ball, Moses kicked instead of taking the tackle. Same level of blame, same level of respect for stepping up in the moment.

I've just come back from the game and thought I would read what fellow Forumers were saying during the game.

Have you got anything positive to say 851. Just one negative comment after another.

Boring.

851 I found it inspirational that we did not let in a try just before half time, at least we have fixed that side of the ledger up.

Russell, did you enjoy being at ringside?

It just showed how immature Brooks and Moses are. It's obvious he's not proficient at kicking fgs by that attempt. Take 2 more to the posts and tap the bloody thing over. Poor game management again by a pair of kids who think theyre better than they actually are.
Do Moses and Brooks think they are better than they actually are?

Are you a mind reader or do you just think - they think - they are better than they are?

I thought they both played their ases off - Moses was everywhere in defense and Brooks did a pretty good job as well. I don't know what you expect from these two. They didn't lose us the game. Everyone put in 100% from where I was standing at Leichhardt, some even more like Kev who was crook before he even got out there. Credit where credit is due I say.

Moses has a funny arm grab but seems to work today. At least he is avoiding concussion in the tackles.

What other excuses have you got BBF.

In defense of RF not taking a Field Goal.

He was reading a comic on the sideline.
Calling for a drink of water.
Doing up his boot laces.
etc. etc. etc.

No doubt about you.

Storm were dreadful. We had the chance to win it, but didn't...We blew it. :(
Was good to see the new boys debut. Really liking Josh Addo-Carr's speed.
