To use A favourites Sheens quote “I don’t like making excuses but their are reasons.” :mrgreen:
Is it any wonder we are looking a bit tired? The Injuries have not been crucifying us but have been chipping away.

This is for a team the bookies set the win total at 7.5 this year and were clear outright favourites for the Wooden Spoon.
Don’t get me wrong other teams are probably doing some hard yakka too.
However I get jealous of teams like the Sharks and Dragons that go to their suburban grounds and grind out dirty wins every couple of weeks with the refs in their pockets. Interestingly the Dragons increased their games a Suburban venues this year. I know the reasons we play at ANZ and we are 2 from 3 there however its hardly an intimidating home ground advantage.
Were not winning the battle with the refs most weeks. Maybe we can this week. We need to throw everything into this his game at Leichhardt -I mean the crowd . At 5-5 our season will be fast slipping away. Thursday Night is not the best, however we will enjoy 100% of the support of whoever is there.
Time to try and grind out an ugly win at home where we get a few 50-50 calls.
