Farah and Sheens were just trying to provide word service to the journos to try and get the boys to lift their intensity next week by labelling us so

omg some of your best work Happy So it was just a smokescreen to the journos .Well it may have fooled the journos but it didnt fool me .
Happy you crack me up , but i love youe loyalty to a lost cause.The Tigers will bounce back(i hope) but as Sheens said they need a lot of soulsearching .ft

Do you understand by saying they are soft you are saying they gave up

Give me a instance when you saw the team give up That is my defintion of soft on the football side Ink

The only time i haved trolled on this forum ever was after few brews and said that we should make MacKinnon halfback and was a joke (Which i have admitted to)

Dont you EVER accuse me of trolling

Farah said we were soft. That is good enough for me.

We were soft as butter last night. Completely dominated in tackles, no impact, easily handled in attack.

If that is not the definition of soft then I don't know what is.

You'd formed an opinion before even seeing the game...and still carrying on with it now.

It seems we are debating difinitions, yours of soft may be different to others, yours seems to be exclusive, the majority here, who had seen the game before commenting, the teams bloody captain for christs sake all agree we were soft...you are trolling

....and by the way, we did give up, remember the ball hitting the deck late, players standing round looking at it, no urgency, no one diving on it....one player finally kicking at it in disgust like a 6 year old...thats giving up!
Another occasion, two or three hit ups in a row in the 2nd half, straight from dummy half to a one out runner , no support, no decoys, no runners, the rest of the team standing still watching.

Soft? What were the soft moments? I saw the under manned and young forwards have a pretty good dig at jubilee. We were well into the game until those two tries right at the end of the second half. Refs and penalties change a game. And the second half was 10 - 6. I think too many forum members still believe we have a weak underbelly, and it's simply not true. The tigers take time to gel every season. As they said in another post, CHILL
2 October 2005 was the greatest day of my life ...

Sadly that performance was unacceptable for a first grade football team that purports to be one of the premiership front runners. We should see a fired up Tigers side next week at C/town otherwise we're in a bit of strife as a club.

I'm watching a replay of the game. Wisdom is of course in hindsight but just the first 5 minutes said a lot.
In the first set the Tigers in defence waited for the Dragons to come to them. The Dragons are up in the 2nd set and our hardest ball runner was Benji on the 2nd tackle.
Rabs calls the Dragons defence a brick wall.
On the 3rd tackle at 3 mins 10secs Heighington is bent back by Dan Hunt and Jack Bellin in a tackle that typified the Dragons enthusiastic defence.
Tigers were ssssssoft!

One thing that p***ed me off the other night was when at the end there after vidot scored he pushed beau away and there was no reaction. I realize we were getting badly beaten but it just showed there was no anger or a willing to say hey, 'f**k you' we may be beaten but we won't be pushed around.

No other teammates seeing that and coming over and drawing a line. As much as people hate watmough or even thaiday at least they show the opposition that, you know, we are here too and wont cop that. I'm not saying we should run from the other side of the field but just a little defiance to stand our ground no matter the circumstances.

Guess it highlights where we were on Friday night. No fire at all

Is it just me, or do alot of posts on this forum end up being like a pee pee measuring contest?

The Dragons were certainly fired up. We should have expected it after the press during the week but we seemed genuinely surprised when they gave it too us. Weyman looked like a superstar for goodness sake

Moi Moi
Pritchard
Weyman
Gasnier (retired, thank christ)
Kite
Morris (both of them)
Soward.

These are all pretty good players which we make look like world beaters every time they play against us....

Don't know if soft is the word - maybe ineffective.
Farah kept throwing it to the forwards only to see them go nowhere.
The young front rowers looked tired and ultimately made errors while Fulton and Heighington continue to get pushed backwards and be controlled.
When the ball hit the backline it rarely went past Marshall - when it did we still did bugger all 99% of the time.
There doesn't seem any will to win - like they all think it'll come good at the end of the year again.

I Was astounded to hear some punter had 30k on saint george just on kick off,even though both of their best defensive players had been ruled out.
\Somebody had an inkling we were not going to turn to play .
