Heads not in the game today

Post by GNR4LIFE » Sun 17 Jun, 2012 4:22 pm

Honestly it hasn't surprised me really. Had a feeling this might have happened when i heard Marshall was in tears during the minute silence. Clearly this is a tight-knit group of boys, and there is NO rift between Benji and Robbie

It would have been a very difficult day out for the Tigers given the tragedy surrounding Farah's mother. Unfortunately the Roosters showed up to play and had a red hot go, while the Tigers were just never in the contest in the first half which really killed off any chance they had to win.

Hopefully the team can rebound for next week, but the Knights will be desperate also.

Those penalties & handovers by Badger in the first 20 mins didn't help - in the end it killed us.

Spot on GNR I'm not disappointed with loss like u usually would be.
Feeling for the Farah clan I'm sure all our thoughts are with them

That minutes silence was very moving...and despite what clowns like Golden say, this had an effect on the side. In the end they still dug deep and scored 5 tries but it wasnt their day. I suggest they all go and have a few beers, regroup and set the targets on Newcastle. This loss is only a blip on the radar.

Watching the replay now, I can't help but think "what if" in regards to BMM having the ball stolen by Mini as he crossed the line and Heighno's forward pass to Lote early in the second half.

The Beauster also looked like he was choking up too

I'm proud of the boys today regardless. Going into the game minus Sironen, Fulton and then Farah ontop of that was disuptive enough, then with the tragic passing of the captains mother. I normally take a loss pretty hard, but today its more of a heavy feeling, like a sadness. I'm sure this will strengthen the group further and will be but a speed bump on our way to the finals. My thoughts and prayers go out to Robbie and his family. RIP Sonia.

Yeah he was...

At the end of the day you dont see games where props score tries unless the other side isnt fully having a go. Thats what I saw today with the Roosters fowards scoring all of their tries. Will be interesting to hear what Sheens thinks in the presser. For mine this is a throw away game that is no indication of our true form.

I agree with american what was already a very difficult and moving day was made virually impossible with all those dubious early calls by the referee.

Im willing to put this down as an off day due to the circumstances. It's easy to say they are professionals an should of switched on but u can't inthis situation. And for people who continually say benji and Robbie hate each other maybe they can see now just how close those 2 actually are.

It was a shocking performance today but losing Farah on game day due to such sad news and having Ellis and Fulton on the sidelines and playing against a team we have struggled agaisnt historically has made it understandable.

We should bounce back agsint Newcastle imo

Yeah it's understandable given the circumstances, we were always going to do it tough to win today. We probably would have if a few things went our way (BMM strip in particular).
