Well done boys



  • Just wanted to say well done lads - taking the defending premiers and a top 2 team to the last minute and only loose due to a unfortunate 3 minutes at the end was a great effort and I am very proud of them.

    I know we are last but when you look at our games we have been right in it against some great teams

    With a side that really isnt up to NRL standard we have pushed Sharks x 2, Dragons, Roosters, eels and storm right to the limit and been in every game to win at half time at least and in al but the roosters game we have been in the others right to the end

    So congrats to the lads I know it is tough right now but even if the talent and experience isn’t quite their the effort has been great



  • I’ll second that. In for a real dig, with the pretenders on the sideline. Keep this lineup Ivan.

    We look horrible in so many ways. Every team looks like they can score whenever the just throw the ball around a little. This is easily the worst we have looked in the past couple of years. Not one back can tackle. No forward hits and sticks. We are embarrassing.

    Yes and No.
    But congratulations are in order to the team and the Coaching staff.
    If JT was coaching and 3 primadonas playing …… we would have been down at our lower grades standards.

    You are embarrassing with stupid comments like that

    Agree completely. I can handle losing when the effort is there. And, ever since Cleary has taken over the effort (apart from Moses, of course) has been strong. Better times ahead. And, I think the spoon can be avoided in 2017.

    The first 15 mins was about the worst footie every witnessed but the boys came good enough to make a very good game of it. congrats. No 50 point blow out. (One turnstyle I still out there but we will keep mum about it in this thread.) My strategy is not to expect a win then I don’t become disappointed and just hope

    Our team earned the respect of the crowd by taking the game right up to the Sharks. No one at the ground believed the WTs played badly and grudgingly gave respect.

    Yet with pretty much the same squad last year we missed out of the 8 by one win. This year I will be surprised if we win another game.

    You guys can pat yourselves on the back about being competitive against a side missing their two best forwards, their five eighth and two best outside backs, I will see that performance for what it was. Terrible. We are defending worse on the edges than we ever have. The Sharks’ second last try was embarrassingly easy.

    Im a supporter of Cleary and like the changes he is making for next year but to suggest that he somehow done better this year than Taylor did last year is ridiculous.

    No 50 point blow out? The Sharks halves were Chad Townsend and Nu Brown. With respect, they would have trouble putting 50 points on team over 2 seasons, let alone one game. Sharks play through Maloney, Fifita and Wade Graham, all who were missing.

    Our defence was terrible and the silliness of blaming that on one player, when it starts from the middle of the field, shows a shocking ignorance of rugby league.

    I am sorry that you didn’t see an improvements in our team performance.
    The difference in experience between two sides last night is very evident to me. And yet our young blokes competed. Time to give credit when its due mate.

    We haven’t improved mate, thats the point. Our defense is worse than ever.

    Im optimistic for the future. I like what M Eis did, I rate Esan Marsters, I like our purchases for next year but lets not kid ourselves that last night was a brave or good performance.



  • I must give praise to the young players who did make a difference in the team tonight,EISENHUTH,MARSTERS,MWZ and LIDDLE…All played strongly tonight and they showed great courage to hold out the Sharkies for as long as they did…They all appear to have a bright future…



  • Yes they did try but at the end of the day it just shows how we still need a few more players for next year cause just like someone else said no one in that backline can tackle they are useless.

    Glad I am not the only one that does not wear rose coloured glasses ,the same plodders last season were certainly a better outfit …I suppose all of us can make our own assumptions why!
