Losing streams happen when you lose to crap teams like the eels and knights. then you lose to decent teams then all of a sudden you lose 3 in a row… and yeah same old tigers same team same franchise different year. they fool us with a good start most years this year went a bit longer but back to oh no we suck again
Ive got no idea about your history on this forum or anything like that but what you posted in the first post is fair enough comment and you think would be treated with a little bit of respect.
Most of the comments since have been of a personal nature directed at you.
Of course they did. That’s just final book keeping.
Exactly…consolation square ups !
Momentum killing first tackle penalties 10m out when the game is virtually over count the same as fifth tackle piggy-backs at the start. However the stats that are important to the NRL are total penalties rather than when and where they are awarded. Apparently our discipline improved towards the end when we were buggered from penalties and sin bins when it counted.
Was a high standard game for 70 minutes against quality opponents who unless decimated by injuries wil be top 4.
Nothing went right and early head bins are affecting us everytime we get some momentum something went wrong.
Things went off the rails in Armidale.
But we are treated like a good side by opponents who are gunning for us so we are a club transformed.
Kearney showed while interviewed we are rated.
Need a break.
Played first 10 of the first 40 with a man missing, only conceded one try with 13 v 13. Did not play well but only 8 points adrift. If not for a few dumb decisions, could even have conceivably scored another first half try.
But as soon as they put ET in the bin - that’s it, game over. You can’t even judge the back 30 of the match properly, we were gassed having to defend so much and Warriors just needed to hold the ball.
It’s not even that we played 1/4 of the game with 12 - ET was marched at the 46th minute, meaning we played 20 of the first 56 mins a man short. The last 20 was a write-off.
Can anyone tell me the last time a single side had two players binned for 10 mins? Especially with no corresponding binning for the other side. How did that work out for the side in question?
We are 5-4 over 9 rounds, probably better than anyone expected. Yes on a bad run right now but the comp is evening up, just look at the ladder. Panthers 3rd get done by Cowboys who were second last. First 11 teams have 50% win ratio or better, so nobody has really been able to put together a run of good performances except Dragons, and lately Souths.
Warriors are second, they are a good side, we would have had trouble beating them even if we didn’t get binned to oblivion. Yeah we lost to Newcastle but they are 8th, not a bad side either.
This game you really just have to forget about. Of course Marshall was poor - but Cleary can’t make knee-jerk decisions. If Gamble is a good replacement, so be it, but otherwise our 2 other #6 solutions are injured.
People saying “Cleary better make the required changes” - bloke has already dropped Tui, MWZ, Nofo, Aloiai, Sue, McIlwrick, Godinet in the first 9 rounds.
ET and Twal retuning plus Rowdy being there will help.
Think they may get that extra 5% hunger back that they had earlier this year after the losses and with the fact key players are back and Reynolds and Packer are soon back and their gunna need it with NZ close to full strength in what could be the best game of the round.
Quietly confident not often teams come back from a 50 point loss and win next week.
May put a decent bet on here.
Ironic how Nofo was commenting on Cleary being frustrated.
He’s on the chopping block for sure.
I don’t understand why people are saying we’ve been decimated by injuries, I think apart from the Dragons we’ve had the least injuries out of any NRL team.
They’ve mostly been one or two week injuries.
Apart from Packer and Reynolds which to me doesn’t effect us because he never started the season anyway so we’re not missing him and Benji for the most part has been in almost career best form.
Have a look at some of the Injury lists of other clubs, we’ve got nothing to complain about.
Agree totally. Packer or no packer, benji out, reynolds in….none of that will help you if you’re getting penlised each time your opponent is in their half.
