Mate, we can't blame refs every week. We've lost 5 in a row, the highest defeat being 12 points. Our halves haven't managed to get us over the line once in that period.
Youre right. Cant blame the refs and i usually dont, but there is no way on earth we have been getting our share of 50/50 calls. The two ball event, forward pass-athon from storm, Lawrence not getting a penalty try, and there are plenty of others as the game go on.

There is no way, i repeat, NO WAY that this stuff happens to the top teams each week. The NRL would be in melt down. But because we are bottom feeders we are supposed to wear this tripe.

Some of those 50/50 calls would possibly have us at a few more close call wins and not looking average.

Alright, let's be like the commentators and forget what happened against us 5 mins later and say that Melbourne were great at grind undoing out a win.... It a deadset joke and if your going to make excuses then you can join that bandwagon aswell. I understand where your coming from and I was like you, but how much can a kolala bear? It's not like we have been losing by 30... We have been duped on tries that have been atleast a twelve point turn around.... And losing by two... Come on... There needs to be an investigation

top effort by all. chips were down with the injured players but we stuck in there. Forwards held their own against a dominate and experienced storm pack and i have to say Farah gave early ball to the halfs. Both halfs had a good game.. played controlled football. last year we would of fallen away at 18-12, but to get to goldern point was brilliant. I hope we can fight like that all year, that game should be the blue print. people here giving the young halfs stick over a missed field goal is harsh, they were very close, unlucky... im not worried about that performance was great..

Mate, I feel your pain. But, unless we become a top team we'll always be on the wrong end of the 50/50s. But there has to be a day when we take the ref out of the equation and 2 key position players can get us over the line. I'm not sure we should be selling the farm for these two. Week after week my love affair with them just decreases, they're not that good. They have no composure under any type of pressure.

Burning about that loss, again questionable ref decisions, wont go in to that after last week.
Thought our young forwards really stood up and played very well.

I thought the team's overall performance was a big step in the right direction. True, Storm weren't great but we were a lot further down on troops than they were.

Not really that disappointed at all.

Brooks' propensity to go for intercepts is so hit/miss. Got us one try but he went for another and let Cronk score when it would've been a simple one on one tackle. Unless he transforms into Brett Kenny or Gary Schofield can he just take his man and stop attempting them.

I know what your saying but it's too hard to take the red out of the equation when it's so blatant and the score reflects the possibility of winning if the the decision was correct! Brooks and Moses are doing fine for their development and given a couple of decisions they would not be bagged like they are. Of course they have off days, but there are plenty of "stars " that do.... Give them a break, they are just fine, and the team and Taylor are doing well considering how young they are..... Don't worry, I'm sooooo pissed myself right now, but these boys have the goods. Just not milone... Lol

Horrendous ball control, we were lucky the storm were just as bad, no direction from the halves or hooker,plod it up and mid field bomb, worked so well just like last year.
Any other NRL side would have put the storm away in the first half, then gone on with it in the second half, excepting garbage like they dished up today is not for me, and I would have thought most other supporters as well.
I can't find too much to like about todays performance, or the last month for that matter, the coach has got to go, how his inspirational speech's inspire them to let in try's every week just after he has spoken to them is beyond me.
No other team does this, and no other club would put up with this happening every damn week, a try in under a minute today, and another in under 2 minutes after halftime, it is typical of our season, it is not a one off.
It is plain to see our coach does not inspire the team before a game, and definitely not at halftime, the players are mentally weak, and the coach has no idea how to fix it, we have lost 5 straight games, stop trying to sugar coat it.
Go hard or go home

IMHO that was another ref decision that went against us :( , Cronk was shielded by Proctor so Milone could not make the tackle, without bias -> sheppard -> penalty against Proctor -> no try.

Really? Blaming the coach right now? I don't usually come on here and complain, but seriously, this game was poorly officiated and not in our favour. The boys tried hard and were duped. It was definitely an improve from last game.

I know mate but it's a 50/50 at best. IF Brooks just takes his man, he tackles Cronk and its a non event

Must have a short term memory, go watch games from '08, '09, '12-'14 to see what it looks like when players are mentally weak and when we had coaches who did not inspire a team before the game and at half time.......

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.
