A wins a win but geez

Post by king sirro » Sun 04 Apr, 2010 6:09 pm

we were terrible.

So much to improve on both individually and as a team.

The only players i cant find any fault with today were Heighington, Fulton and Fafita. The rest have plenty to work on. Farah was man of the match, and i believe he was the difference, but honestly, a player of his calibre really needs stop taking the wrong options and stop coming up with poor plays.

Great to win when playing bad, its a good sign.

i think you are judging it a bit harsh ....playing down in canberra is a tough game ....we got blown off the park by a 70 % posscession rate , and were still good enough to win 13 plus .....i reckon that shows real courage....the raiders threw everything at us and our courage just to stay in the game tells me we are a better side than previous years .....

The have the nickname Canberra Faders for a reason tigers tigers. They are a 60 minute team, even at home. Tigers did real well to win today but geez, I'd hate to be a Raiders fan.

Mate we gave them that possession rate through dropped ball, poor defense and bad kick chase. Thats why i consider us being terrible today.

Not wrong some poor performances today none worse than Ayshford, he needs to get his defence in order.

Not the first time either.

Agreed Ayshford worries me looking at our whole squad the ayshford, brown combination is the weka area for me (although Brown was ok and prob our best option their at the moment)

Played very well in the 2nd half... but make no mistake...
...if we play like that up at QLD... we will lose...
We need to really start playing 70 - 80 minute games constantly... like we did with parra ....
... but 2 points is 2 points ... & to come back from 22 - 4...
we showed some real ticker... GO THE TIGERS !!
Im back!! oh its true.... Its damn true!!!

agree sirro, we didn't turn up at the start but to win the way we did shows character something we have lacked seasons before.

maybe the boys aren't just all talk this season

best thing is that the team did not give up when they were behind 22-4.
believed in themselves and we saw the end result.
need to get off to a good start against cowboys.

Yep.

If we give 18 point leads to teams like Melbourne we will be slaughtered.

With some luck and better execution the raiders could have been up by forty at oranges. Even in the second 1/2 we had more than our fair share of luck, but we had the class to win and thats what counts.

One day we are going to play for 70minutes and put a cricket score on some poor team

Credit to Canberra though, they were terrific in the first half as their big forwards just rolled on and Campese was running the show on the back of that.

Our off the cuff attack is the best in the comp but our right side defence is schoolboy stuff, Canberra went away from what was clearly working for the them in the first twenty luckily for us.

We gave them everything in that first half. Free ball, stupid penalties, lucky penalties, bad decisions etc. But most importantly we gave them time. Our defence was sitting on it's proverbial letting them come to us and thats why they destroyed us. We looked asleep for most of the 1st half.
Compared to last week that first half defensive performance was terrible.
The 2nd half however. Well, that was a completely different story :)
On the bus or under it!
Your choice.

I have to admit that 5 mins before haltime I had written this game off. Thank god for that try before the break. Without that i reckon we might have got a towelling.
