In big games u need your stars to guide you home, Robbie's kicking game was horrendous,he is a super player. Just a shame it happened tonight.

that grubber kick on the 3rd tackle on their line was appauling - but otherwise he bleeds black, white and gold

No doubt about that on both points.

Also his kick from the middle of the pitch in the first half was poor and his kick straight to Soward in the second half on the 4th tackle when we looked like scoring. Nightingale scored in the next set. It was a turning point for mine.

That kick was one of the most important moments in the game. All he had to to was pass it to Benji out wide. We probably score from there. Instead he hogged it and came up with a terrible play.

He is a great player but he needs to cut that crap out of his game.

The turning point in the game was Lote not getting a penalty for the knees in the back. Two points to us, and the Saints don't get into position to kick a field goal directly following. Was at the game it it appeared Robbie played the second half in considerable distress

I love Robbie like a fat kid loves cake...but he was well below par, and his kicking game in particular was very, very poor.

We needed him to step up tonight.

I thought Farah tried hard as always and should have been rewarded with at least 3 penalties for catching markers offside. I was disappointed with his kicking game, but the Tigers kicking game has been inconsistent all season unfortunately, and tonight Farah had an off night with the boot. Despite playing behind a beaten forward pack and having 44% possession I don't think too many hookers would have outplayed him in tonight's conditions.

Farah has won us more games than he has costs us if you believe he played badly tonight. I think everyone played well tonight, just a few bad reffing decisions and some brilliants kick into our in-goal by dragons cost us

With 2 minutes to go, from broken play close to the half way line, Farah kicked it into the corner of the Dragons in goal and charged through with no support at all to try to tackle Boyd and force a drop out.

He played his guts out imo, was dangerous around the ruck without much help from the refs, and created quite a few opportunities that didn't quite come together. Pretty harsh for anyone to bag him.

I was talking to my monitor in a rather loud and forceful tone questioning where the the dire lack of support on that play was.

Agreed! He tried too hard and the pink blind mice traditionally don't like giving away cheap penalties in the big games. I also feel his constant attempts cost us some width on certain occasions. It wasn't always a good option...

I actually thougt outside of his mistakes with the kicks (bad kicks not nessecarily the wrong option) he was fantastic tonight, just those 3 kicks as mentioned on here were terrible but he tried his guts out, tackled everything he could, was racially abused , captained us fantastically, was clearly busted in the 2nd half and if the refs wernt blind should have got us more penalties when they were continually offside

Dont disagree about the 50-50 comment and that he tried his guts out.

However, I stand by my view that Farah's short kicking game cost us dearly at critical times.

Hit the nail on the head. I counted 6 very poor short kicking options, a couple from memory on the 4th tackle. Saints accepted the ball with very little pressure, or the ball went dead.
