Todays Loss could work in our favour for next year



  • I just think that reality check today might give some of our players a wake up call.

    I didn’t say anything however there was lots of lairing it up over in NZ. Players hollering it up to the crowd and carrying on after tries.Then some lots of talk in the press about how we can beat anyone on the comp. Teddy said there is something special happening here.

    I would not say we went in over confident however I thought there was a bit too much tough talk for a side with plenty to prove. I think they expected Leichhardt and a big cowd would help get them over the line.

    Well they got embarrassed today I think this could actually work In JT’s favour next year. This flogging wll be the lasting memory coming intopre season and it should really motivate everyone to imporve. Earlier in the year the boys talked it up about playing expansive footy and were put back in their box with 6 losses and no control in games.

    This loss shows us how far we have to go if we want to really act on being something special, or beating anyone.

    Im just saying if we had limped into the 8 it might have papered over some cracks. Dont get me wrong i would rather be there !!



  • Come on man, a wake up call, someone’s been hitting the snooze button if today was a wake up call.



  • I thought the Panthers game with everything to play for was a wake up call. But today was an atomic bomb. I really hope its a wake up call for higher powers to see that with the season on the line in front of a packed crowd, and we get absolutly smashed. If JT cant get them up for this game he never will.



  • Wake up call probably the wrong words.

    Smack in the Face more like it.

    I just think some of our players believed their own hype.

    I agree. Players were talking about finals and shaking it up when all they should have been worrying about was the raiders.



  • I’ve said it before but I don’t know where this sense of superiority comes from. A quick check of the team record and stats should tell them it’s misplaced to say the least.



  • missing 14 finals series in 17 years should be a wakeup call



  • Penrith loss should have been a wake up call. I fail to see how that shouldn’t have been a competitive game. This loss is embarrassing and it makes the Tigers the laughing stock of the NRL. Really makes me question if I even want to support this team anymore.

    Embarrassing. And some think a coaching change will solve everything lol.


  • Banned

    I’d like to think it would be a wake up call, except that it happens all the time with this lot - they never seem to learn! Always lots of confident, tough talking before a match only to look like chumps after under performing.



  • They’re just a bogey team for us at the moment. They have a lot of threats on the edge and that’s right where we suck defending. We handed them momentum from the get go and never seized it back.

    I see what you did there :slight_smile:

    Exactly, JT should have learnt from the panthers game, but he didn’t, we were actually worse, for him and some players, there are no excuses left.



  • How can we possibly learn anything from a wake up call we get them often every season and nothing changes.The favourite players are picked every week no matter how poorly they perform. next year will be exactly the same.If we lose liddle to injury we are totally buggered and to be honest i dont think he is ready yet for a full year in the top grade.Unless we get a few decent defensive players in the backline and muscle in the forwards expect another poor year

    It won’t but it’s a bloody good start
