:lol:

we quite possibly possess the worst coach to grace Australian shores.

We're rubbish, and the wooden spoon is heading to the Nations Capital.

Furner has to go. This is unacceptable.

You certainly possess the most out of form halves I've seen in a LONG while. Don't know what the hell is going on with you guys, but I feel for you. Hopefully you can pick yourselves up and sneak into 7th or 8th.

Feeling for ya Joey...Not too much though, I was nervous before the match as I really thought the Raiders would try and belt the Tigers off the park. Apart from Dugan and Tilse who had a go, you poor blokes didn't have much in the tank. Shillington can count himself very lucky to snag a spot on the bench for Australia because Galloway got the better of him and TLL for the second time this year.

You probably feel the same as many of us here did after we got thrashed by the Bunnies last year. Tigers were booed off by their fans.
We could always do with another Tiger fan Raider_Joey :sign:

Nah, I'll stick it out. The good times in Canberra are very good. Just a pity they never happen.

FWIW, the Raiders were booed off today. Apparently at the tunnel, there were some very furious Raiders supporters venting their frustration out at the players.

Our dummy halves are only a piece of the problem. We have no structure, no game plan, no set plays... oh wait, bash it up then bomb to Ferguson.

He is a dreadful coach.

Really feel for you atm, Joey (although I am ecstatic about my team's big win) and can relate having suffered many a big loss and bad season in my 40 odd years of following my team/s. I don't know if Furner is to blame for it all though - there are a lot of good players in your team, who are really down on confidence for what reasons, I don't know. Anyway, I still believe the Raiders will awake from their slumber when Campo returns and make the final eight - mark my words!

For Wests Tigers supporters, your feelings are (as Mick Jaggar put it) just a shot away. Salvation is still possible - when does Campese return? If I was supporting Canberra, I'd advocate dropping Orford, to be honest, he's been wretched. You have so much attacking talent in the team, just pass it out to them.
Cheering for the mighty Wests Tigers, all the way from France.

It was a real surprise, but what stood out the most were a couple of the holes that opened right up and no one in defence really seemed to care. There was no urgency from any Raiders.

I said to my missus at the start of the game that orgies was going to be one of our best players. Just didn't bank on Bronson also being up there as well

Got to agree with tiger tigers you have to get a dummy half who can roll your big forwards through the ruck.
I think you should try to turn Orford into a 9 (he's a pretty ordinary 7 these days) and bring Sam Williams back into 1sts. He was a class above in the 20's today and far better than Orford.
On the bus or under it!

1,6,7,9 on the back of good forward play. You really lacked all (and I don't know why when you have some of the biggest forwards in the game).
Dugan was as good as he was bad today.

I agree with Joey, the raiders attack structure is woeful.

The Canberra outside backs can play footy, not that they are getting a cahnce, and why oh why does furner send his forwards one out all day!

Dugan as talented as he is, stands too deep all the time

Lets see how they go 2nite. Orford should be primed for a return to his old stomping ground as well and show the people and media what they are made of.

I heard a rumour that Dugan asked the board last year whether he could only be considered for home matches.........Anyone else heard anything similar? Came from a good source...
