These slow play the balls at the end of the game are a farce. Something needs to be done about them. Perhaps added time ....

Not Woods fault. Little John should have taken it
Yes it was, didn't need to be thrown.
No way. We needed metres - 2nd phase would give us metres. LJ was not aware. You should always be aware
At that stage of the game risky offloads were not what was needed. It was a very low percentage play.

People are a bit hard on Brooks missing th FG attempt. It was hardly a gimme...
When was the last time he actually kicked one?

Yeah it's annoying. Maybe one day we'll be in front with a minute to go and be able to use that tactic...

Overall, that was ok, especially given the opposition is in the 8 and some of the cattle we have at our disposal. Some supporters are hard markers I think.

If Lolo had kicked the goal off our last try, we win. At any rate, it's pretty much just trying to build up some of the players who will feature next year, get some combinations and minutes going etc.

It was hard, but he was not even close.

It appears the two pass tactic with field goal may be the way to go these days as they all target the first player. Was Lolohea around as an option?

Tough game to lose, plenty of effort, execution still lets us down for the most part. Signs look promising for next season though.
Agreed,,,they are playing with much more intensity..young guys in Twal and Eisenhuth putting there hands up...

It was a bone headed pass. Only 1 in 4 of his offloads improves our position.

Brooks was not in control of that game, unfortunately. Moses has a better idea of how to close out a game. Brooks drifted.

The offloads were the only way we were ever gonna break the line, we had no attacking play otherwise.

there's only 4 teams in the top 8 that will win the comp ...Melb / Sharks / Chooks and maybe Brisbane ... The rest are garbage just making up the numbers .
Parra were there to be beaten today , they were crap ..
But what kills me is our mob can't even do the basics right .
The Lolohea missed conversion was pathetic for a first grader ..
2018 won't be much different to this season ... You watch !

That far out without a super quick play the ball was always going to be hard.

Easy field goal attempt? Christ you guys are hard markers. Looked like 35m out off centre. He wasn't 15 out under the posts.
Good comment. Not an easy field goal. Brooks will have some homework during the off season with his short kicking game. Lolohea with his fitness which to me was the reason for his missed tackle. Good signs for next year. Really impressed with Eisenhuth, Twal, Marsters and co.
It wasnt easy but blokes like Cronk & JT make it easy for themselves to set up for a FG in the tackles prior, directing their forwards where they want them to go
