PS They didn't score directly after that fumble - we ended up getting the ball back. :crazy

Ink you obviously dont play Rugby league or any sport for that matter to understand the role of the refs and penalties in influencing a game.

Me negative? Im not calling the team soft or calling for players to be dropped three weeks into a long season. Just showing support for the team WE supposedly support

Im not making excuses mate ive said numerous times we deserved to lose the match and that our defence was horrible. I was just trying to make a point about the circumstances but sorry for that buddy i wont post my opinions anymore

Laziness or tiredness - two different things. My view is the later. The boys are trying there guts out. At various times last night they were absolutely buggered. Go Weststigers!
Tired?

I wonder why?

One bench player (Moors) getting 17 minutes, another (Meaney) getting 0 minutes....so basically 17 against 15, yeh I see why they were tired, especially when possession was 54% to the Dragons and 46% Wests Tigers....and completions
were 28/42 to them and 17/34 to us

FFS our own captain called his team soft.

What do you have to say about that?

usually I try too see any type of positive in a bad situation. :D
this instance I won't. :x

last nights performance, regardless of penalty count, well it sucked , and that is being very polite. :oops:

don't give the ref's a reason to penalise your team.

fellas- you are the wests-tigers, not the concord/campbelltown cubs. :roll:

I played for a while, I have been involved with jnrs for the last 9 or 10 years...go down watch the kids you'll see some doozy refs there mate

Theyre called 50/50's....they didnt go our way last night, good teams...real good teams can overcome this

What I have a problem with is to my way of thinking you gave the team no chance even before they ran out (thread title) ....thats just rubbish

I think there were two we couldve got that we didnt, but they ones we conceded from what I recall were all deserved penaltys, ie: our own fault

Didn't blame moltzen ck, it was the turning point. Crowd got into the game at that point. They scored two tries within 5 minutes, and our heads dropped

Yep, but Sheens will never address this, for some reason. He just likes to :deadhorse:

The penalty count was pretty lame for sure, but in no way did the refs cost us the win. They made some blunders, both for and against us. We played crap and St George played very well - their defence was outstanding. They were obviously determined to make up for their inept display last week. Let's hope we can do the same next week. However, I think our days of 'smashing' teams is well and truly over - we are not that good. I'd just be happy to win, tbh.

Next week bouncing off that poor effort from our guys we beat the Raiders easy and then triple up against up Souths and the Broncos and once again all will be good in forum land until we get beat by a desperate Parra and then the doomsayers will feel more comfortable in that they can go back to bagging Sheens and the boys.
So you have nothing negative at all to say about that perfomance? don't be scared to, it doesn't make you any less of a supporter
Plenty of negatives I could say, halves were terrible, kicking game awful, forwards dominated etc etc but whats the point. They got done and they will win this weekend and the next two with or without Farah. See I could also say whinge whinge whinge we have lost Farah as well but instead I will say, it gives a kid a chance and will allow Farah to fix his niggles. Half empty vs half full.

I don't know about that AHX The more players that are out in the opposition the less focussed we seem to be Sometimes I wish we played teams at full strength at least you know we will be 100% on the ball
