Just one complaint

Post by king sirro » Sun 21 Aug, 2011 6:19 pm

Im tired or our horses for courses attitude.

I mentioned it last week and it happened again today.

If we were playing Melbourne, Saints or Manly, we would have taken the 2 before halftime, but becasue it was a lower team, we didnt. Why the change in approach? IMO its unproffesional. Correct me if im worng, but if we take the 2, we jump the cowboys?

I guess one saving grace is that come semi final time, we will have the right attitude. But i just wish we showed it week in week out..............if we did, we'd be competing for the minor premiership.

Anyway, 6 in a row :master:

We needed another 4 points to jump the Cowboys, so taking the 2 before halftime wouldn't have done anything except get us 2 points closer.
Great game played by the boys, GO THE TIGERS!!

I was right in line with the play and Sheens, he motioned to keep the roll on....I think its the right call, they really shouldve scored there
Im not so sure if it wouldve been diff 16-0 against melb Manly or saints....at that time we were getting thru easily imo
shouldve scored

We took the right option, get the try there and it's all over.

I thought the decision to play on was the correct one .Another try at that point would have blown them off the park.

Yep, definitely should've been up 22-0 at half time. We had all the momentum there, so I have no problem with the decision to go for the try.

As far as leaping the Cowboys goes - now how important was it for the boys to not let that late try in against Penrith last week? Still filthy about that!
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

I guess its alright since we won but it was pretty comical how Moltzen broke free twice but failed his pass'

Agreed we should have took the 2 at half time. Thankfully we did later in the game.

Definitely the right option in my opinion. We tried to put them to the sword, didn't come off - oh well, we move on.

If we hadn't have bombed at least 3 tries well that would have certainly put Parra to the sword.
I would like to see the Tigers return to the ruthless days of 2005 when they denied the opposition any sniff of a comeback and went right on with the job.
Utai should have had a field day out there today but I suppose when he knows that he's only keeping the spot open for Lote he's feeling the pressure while Moltzen needs to be a bit more patient when he's waiting on his support players.
All in all a good result considering that Parra are our bogey team despite where they are on the ladder.
