That's the trouble with Channel 9 choosing us for FTA, at least on Foxsports for the Saturday and Sunday games they show the NYC youngsters, it's a double edged sword, when we are going well we are on FTA but when we are on FTA we have a shocker.

We would look for a play on the blindside off a scrum in our own quater of the field. Wouldn't we be better served running the plays up the middle and then offloading and attacking the fringes?

Fifita made a couple of poor reads in his first stint and I think that is why he was pulled after 10 off minutes in the first half. These defensive errors were costly.

We looked more potent in attack when Lui came on. I know to a degree he deserves the bad press he gets on here but it was blantantly obvious today that we look slicker with him there. If Benji is injured, how is his combination with Miller?

Lastly I think we played as well as they let us play. We won the penalty's, we had more posession, but they made us play wide and easily gobbled us up.

Sheens, we have maybe two weeks to get things right. We have the squad now to win without Benji, but it needs to come together now!

Best game I have seen Dwyer play this year.
I think this is a good summary of the game! We tried hard but our kicking and attack were of a very poor standard. The only time we were in the game was when the forwards had the ball.

I think the over-use of short kicks on early tackles was a response to the fact that the Storm were never back the ten metres.
Cheering for the mighty Wests Tigers, all the way from France.

Has there been any discussion about the disallowed Gibbs' try? It came at a crucial part of the game and I would have thought that it would have been a talking point. Did he drop it? Was it stripped? Do we still have 'Benefit of the doubt'? Whatever.
If there has been discussion and I missed it I'm sorry.
