A pretty good loss



  • At least we can pinpoint our problem - goalkicking

    If it was attitude or defence then that would be a worry at this stage of the season.

    Get a sharp shooter by next Friday night.

    Otherwise - we played well - solid team performance all round.

    I was disappointed that they were up the other end so many times but failed for about 65 minutes. we cant expect finals play that way.



  • No such thing as a pretty good loss unless your your a perennial loser.like the old guy who has a hundred on a 20/1 shot and it’s coming home like a train and gets beat by a lip …woulda coulda shoulda dosent make you a winner …losers again



  • The better team won.

    We did well to get back into the game considering the loss of Teddy. There is too much pressure on Moses to produce. The defence stacks his side and miracle plays are needed to get through and it cost us twice with 2 intercepts from the pressure in defence.

    We need a plan B in those situations and we dont have one.



  • The better side won on the day, we were pretty flat all game and Moses had a pretty average day allround, but there was lots of effort and that is all you can ask for. Refs made a couple of really bad calls but we had enough ball to win by plenty. Our attack was average, but Rankin was great out of d/h

    A good summary.



  • Nothing wrong with plan A - kick the kickable goals to win the match



  • Not sure what the role of Littlejohn was today. IMO we may as well had Taylor play 7. Jack was like the little boy lost out there.



  • Exactly - can he kick goals?



  • Littlejohn offers little in attack …his defence is his strength

    That is what I have been saying, they just have to target Moses like they did and we are almost off the paddock. That is why we need another playmaker in there who has the same talents as Moses and can split the pressure.

    A good loss? yeah it’s good to see us lose again like we used to under Sheens all those close loss’s we used to have. with Potter we used to get flogged every single game we did lose! maybe we are back to losing only close again> I really don;t know what is worse at least getting flogged I can sleep at night and laugh and not care and feel so depressed.

    BTW sick of hearing about Goalkicking the titans missed 3 goals off trys as well!!! if you wanna go by goalkicking logic they should have been 24-10 up

    Agreed. They scored more tries than us. out played us through the middle and out muscled our forwards. not a good enough performance all around after last week.
    We went backwards this week in my opinion. not necessarily as individuals (although a few were) but as a team.
    There were some really bad calls in that game go against us but hey, thats the NRL isn’t it, unprofessionalism at it’s worst every week. Just think of it as part of the sport sadly.

    Correct the loss of teddy was bad also but at that stage we where down 4 tries to 1!I have never agreed with the policy of taking a shot at goal especially when you have kickers running mid to low 60 per cent,it is total insanity.the better side won because they took their chances,hopefully something was learnt from this
