5 tries in 13 minutes. You really don't see that as a problem?

Yes we didn't look like losing when we were at 31-0, but we sure did give it a red hot go to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

And allowing the opposition, especially one that has been playing crap, to lay on 5 tries in the final 20 was awful

You're missing the point completely, Boonboon. A team on their game would never let that happen. Unless there is a massive change in attitude and form from this team soon, they are in heaps of trouble.

Wins are hard to come by, so well done boys again

Never been so unhappy after a win.
Just gotta keep telling myself a win is a win.

Wow, some of you are easily pleased.

A win is a win, but to drop your bundle like that is pretty disappointing.

That last 12 minutes negated all the hard work, and excellent effort the players put in for the first 68 minutes.

5 tries in 12 minutes it totally unacceptable from any NRL team, and against a struggling attacking side like Parramatta, minus Sandow, well that is just a joke. I am happy that they got the win, but to be happy with that effort would be lying.

I don't think its much to worry about.
They got a few lucky, flooky, absolutely nothing tries.
We played outstanding for the majority of the game and if we can get the 80mins going were perfect.

I used to think being 24+ points in front as a tigers fan was enough to feel safe.. now after this they have made me now think 30 isn't even enough as a tigers fan now.. I will never ever feel safe again with any sort of lead in a game unless it's 50-0 with 10 mins to go

lol ink

funny caption could be
" so if we can't see opposition, we don't have to tackle them"

played well for 68 min.
then backed off in final 12min.
gotta love field goals.

Finally some logic and context. I don't think anyone is saying that we were great today, but you're right, we never looked like losing, Parra are still last, we're 2 points from the eight.

They scored 30 points in 13 minutes and lost, how do you think they feel? When we come out and beat the Gold Coast next week, nobody will care about this game. A lot of people underestimate the know how to win a game, we did that today, and it was because Benji, Robbie and Humble knew to set up for the field goal before half time, and pegged them in their 20 for most of the second half.

They would have got a rocket after the game too, and I think they'll come out and beat the Titans next week, knowing that it's effectively a 4 point game with the bye afterwards.

Exactly...this is the second time this year this has happened. 10 minutes..9 tries..yeah that should be safe. 10 minutes..5 tries..will never again be comfortable with that.
