Hmmmmm glad we won but it feels hollow somehow. Really wanted to see a ruthless performance but in the end it was almost a scared performance where they were too desperate to score and didn't trust their plays to get the job done.

Serious talent missing yet still competitive.
Brad Arthur should almost get the Dally M Coach award. Have no idea how he has managed to get the team to continue to turn up and be consistently competitive.
Cheaters and drug dealers do not deserve everything they got :mrgreen:

The Canberra flogging we copped will come back to haunt us IMO .
We are a good side in the NRL. I think we are easily a top 4-5 team. We are winning games with 2 out of our 4 gun players out of the team.

That was a win for those players that aren't out top level players. Nofo, Grant, Ava, Aloiai, Simona and Naiqama really showed us how good a squad we have.

Moses was great, Tedesco was average for him but still good.

Top 4-5 team are you serious Steve? :shock:

Top 4-5 don't have those defensive issues on our right side.
Maybe your saying Potentially could be.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

I don't even worry about the right side. It's Moses, Naiqama and Nofo. Those guys add too much to our team to worry about doing anything other than telling them to work on it.

2 Real Negatives

Rankin and another real poor game
And Sue trying to get himself in trouble by lifting his knee

He is too good a player to be grubby but he has come off the rails in the last 2 games
That late hit and today lifting his knee when hitting the ball up

I'd be stoked to see us play like that again. Happy would be spewing if we won the comp but personally I could live with it.

We'd all love it if we could consistently blow teams away like in 05 .
Problem is , is that there's the other aspect of the game... 'Defence' .
We've been lucky the last 2 games , that we've played against two clapped out sides .

We have played two teams that aren't that crash hot but our squad is a quality squad. There are very few weaknesses in our team.

Defence is important. In 05 though our defence came good at the right time. It's about playing both parts of the game.
