Melbourne's 4 tries:

2 x stupid reads by Moses
1 x Wests dropped ball
1 x Melbourne forward pass

Look at the Wests tries as a comparison. We just need to remove schoolboy errors, it's that simple.

School boy errors and goalkicking. Look at the sharks game 5 tries all 7 goals to 3 lewis and gallen both score tries close to our line just by isolating brooks in defence. We score lots of good team tries we just need improve our 1 on 1 defense and silly errors and we can trouble any team in the comp with our up tempo game. With the future addition of liddle if we can keep our spine together we have a lot to look forward to

To think we were as bad as we were in the first half and still nearly pulled it out of the fire shows the amount of character that's there that wasn't there against Canberra. Also shows the pride in the jersey atm that also wasn't there 2 months ago. I do think we'll win enough games to give 8 a genuine crack.

Add to this playing the whole game without a recognised hooker plus almost all game 1 man short.

The second half gives me hope we can still do something this year but must win our next 2 before the bye

It looked like we were using the up and in again in the first half to try and cut down time and options for Cronk but underestimated how well he would adapt, and underestimated how dangerous Tofu Harris would be alongside him. We should just shelve that defence because we generally do not have good, hit and stick one on one defenders out wide and it relies heavily on that.

Look your not wrong, but its hard to get overly excited about it as we make these errors in most losses. Its not like its out of the blue.

When we start putting in 60-80 minute performances it will be a lot more sustainable.

Yesterday was a 40 minute performance. The other 40 was terrible. Even if we could have limited them to 14-0 at halftime yesterday we would have had a shot.

We had some great flashy tries, but it a bit like the NBA equivalent of garbage time. Maybe thats a bit harsh but im really not sure what to make of that performance.
