Martin Taupau



  • At the hospital i work at, one of my patients i was attending too was watching the tigers game. I was disappointed at the scoreline but not surprised. What surprised me and angered me was watching Taupau laughing, carrying on like he was on the winning team and being chummy with the two roosters forwards and their trainer, instead of hanging his head in shame for his teams performance and going up to the few remaining supporters and apologising to them. To me it seemed like he didn’t give a damn. Was anyone else upset by that or am i the only one 😦

    Definitely not alone…

    Really makes me… :rant



  • I agree wAt u saying. But in nth qld. They showed him on th bench at end of game he looked shattered and I thought geez he gives a damn. So he is probably over it He put in tonight though



  • And the real scary thing

    We were technically still in Top 8 contention

    What happens the next 3 weeks ??



  • It is probable not a good look ,but he puts in every game and he just might be a happy friendly kind of guy …not his fault that most of his team mates have no heart and should hang there heads.



  • This is the worst thing by far. Don’t go laughing and having fun with the opposing team if you’ve just been smashed, very disrespectful to the fans.



  • It’s very disrespectful i agree. I’ve never seen teams like Storm or Manly act like that after a small loss let alone a thrashing. Bellamy would go ape. And Toovy would want an “investigation.” We definitely need a change of attitude at the club, a harder approach needs to be taken by the coaching stuff, CEO and board to make this team in to winners.The sooner the better.



  • Get over it boys, as far as I saw was Taupau having a laugh with some of his team mates from the Kiwi test side.
    What else u think he suppose to do??
    Or better off, what would u guys do??
    He would be disappointed don’t u worry about it!!

    Wrong time and place for a laugh after that performance. " go acknowledge the few remaining fans first, sign and take a few photos with some of the kids that were allowed to go and watch in this weather. Catch up and have a laugh with your mates off field. I like Taupau as a player and seems like a good man but it didn’t go down well with me.



  • The same friendly banter happens between players from other teams after most games regardless of the scoreline. You just don’t notice it because you don’t have an emotional connection with those other teams.

    Technically yes, but the players aren’t stupid. They know when you have to win everything and start relying on others losing everything, it’s over.

    The season was over after the Bulldogs game when nobody quashed the Potter speculation and it escalated to the story it became. It must have been terribly disheartening to have your season sabotaged by your own club. Only we can/would do that!

    Taupau was the only forward to punch through the Roosters, so i dont mind what he did. If he didnt have a go then i would be filthy but he did.

    Sometimes when your team is soundly beaten but the opposition didnt get it over you personally, you feel a nice satisfaction about yourself. He matched the Roosters pack on his own so he can smile.

    He should be getting praised on here for that effort rather than copping it.
