Once again...

We can’t finish a team off. I don’t know what the hell is wrong with this team. Last week I said:

" As for the second half, ONCE AGAIN we didn’t go on with it. We never go on with it. Every time we are up by 6 points the boys decide their job is done and go to asleep. If you are leading 19-0 at half time, then you put on another 20 and smash them, You don’t let them back in the game. But we do - each and every week."

At which point I was accused of ‘trolling’.

We need to learn to finish teams off, not continually letting them back into the game. Thank God Farah had the common sense to kick that FG.

True.

Although Manly are not defending premiers for no reason. they have some fair players…

Great win but yes, another poor 2nd half. Needs to be addressed.

its a problem i know but i think with their energy levels and enthusiasm its very hard to keep it going the full 80. i knew straight away with the lead the got theyed flatten second half.

Definitely agree, that second half defense was pathetic… missed tackles must be in the 40’s… first 40 was fantastic though.

We beat manly and have now won 4 in a row…once again yes ozcrusader…pathetic negative post

But the difference this week was that u could feel Manly were on the verge of cutting us up all game, so luckily we took advantage of our opportunities in the first half. Very dissapointing to not score in the 2nd half. We should have scored of at least one of Ayshfords plays.

It is quite difficult to get into the mentality of playing the game as if it is NIL ALL instead of 18 or 19-0 after putting lots of tries on.

Not a great second half, particularly in the ruck. But it was a very fast, uptempo game. Difficult to be too critical given the circumstances. I am not one to normally blame refs but I certainly thought they allowed Manly a lot of latitude in laying on our tackled players.

I’m just happy with the two points. Remember who we were playing. Manly put plenty on the knights last week and they have been in great form. I think we don’t pay our guys enough credit for their wins.

Go you Tigers!!

pathetic negative post

I don’t think it’s that pathetic, it’s a perfectly fine critique on the performance and something that will need to be addressed if we’re serious about going far in the finals.

Last week may have been a worry, but tonight we were up against the defending premiers in good form. A win is a win. Comp points are the only thing that matters now.

I actually don’t think we were all that bad in the second half. We evidently got tired and lazy in the last 20 minutes, but the bottom line we still managed to hold Manly out and take the two points.

Manly threw everything at us in the last 15 minutes, and we defended extremely well, despite the fact we let them score 18 points. I am satisfied with the performance.

The ref evening up the penalty count had something to do with it.
I’m pretty proud of them holding Manly out actually.

gee i dont know …. if it was a horse race, we just won a group 1 in grand style…1 point 40 points it was a win against a quality side who we have struggled to beat since we formed the jv…
