We need to blame ourselves not the refs

The basics of rugby league seem to be a struggle for this side

Honestly we weren't that bad. Richards was terrible. Anyone arguing that thread about him being a liability has no idea. Robbie came up with one of the worst all time clutch plays. Apart from that though we were reasonable.

We need to play a lot better to be a top team but I see Sironen, Moses and Brooks improving getting us to that level assuming the obviously bad players are culled from the team.

Woods penalized from touching the ball while making a tackle is that not the same as when pat got the ball nocked out

There were 14 or 15 of our blokes out there getting paid a lot more than the refs offering up an even worse performance.
We can't blame the refs for our non-existent line speed, non-existent ruck control, terrible attacking structure and just general disinterest.
I only saw from the 25 minute mark onwards but Sue and Ava were our best forwards by far.

Uninspiring is an understatement when trying to describe that total non-performance.

The refs aren't the issue

Our lack of grasping the simple basics of this game on a consistent basis is killing us

Stupid penalties , shocking missed tackles , massive brain farts , unable to win scrums with the feed , back three dropped ball after ball

Time for Taylor to put the foot down , make some blokes earn a WT's jersey

Yep. I'm finding myself more and more engaged with US sports because they are actually run by professionals. Losing interest in the NRL more and more every year.
so you think Dallas Cowboys fans are happy with the officials?? and Tom Brady and the cheating patriots who won the super bowl?

Are you sure he isn't at least part of the problem.

We look so much better when Moses runs the ball. I honestly think Brooks needs to go back to State cup. I hope JT doesn't persist if form doesn't warrant it.

Three most disappointing things:

Scrum lost against feed 10 out
Pat dropping the intercept
But most of all Robbie kicking it dead at a critical time of the game!

I know young players make silly mistakes, but I live in Newcastle and to listen to them gloating when they played poorly is hard to take!!

Lots of positives today. defence was good. attack was ok. We will look a lot better when simona is back. Got to say second row is a bit of a dissapointment at the moment. defence good but no strike power. moses was good and nofo back. still gutted we lost but that is the structured game we have to play. once we master it this team will be unstoppable.

Not sure I share your optimism mate, saw a lot more negatives than positives.
I don't think it's the structure we have to play either. Look at the Warriors. Sure they haven't won a premiership playing like that, but they've gone a lot closer than we have in recent years. It's a different game to 2005, sure, but second phase and unstructured play seems to undo just about every defensive structure going around at the moment.
I don't think our team is too far off the Warriors in terms of off-the-cuff potential either.

don''t ever want to go back to that benji touch footy stuff again, proven it does not win comps. happy to grind with the two most youngest and inexperienced halves in the game. Its called investment for the future.

It won us a comp in 2005, and got us close for a few years around 2010. It may not win us won now, but it would certainly build our profile, improve player (and fan and sponsor) confidence and return some sort of identity to the team. The squad that we have would be much more suited to it as well.
