I disagree. We were poor in that game and any other side in the top 8 would have beaten us. We needed to beat the Sharks easily and have the Dragons fearing us. Right now the Dragons will believe they can beat us …
Don’'t forget the Dragqueens lost to the Sharks earlier in the year so I don’t think they would look at this win and think any less of our team.
I hope it was the ‘loss’ people were saying we needed to have, but somehow got away with. I was only listening on the radio but it sounds like the sharks got dudded by some poor calls and we were pretty ordinary.
Short turn around, late changes, and a determined sharks outfit all factors.
I disagree. We were poor in that game and any other side in the top 8 would have beaten us.
But the catch is, if we were playing any other side in the top 8 we wouldn’t have played like that.
We often do just enough to win. No more. No less.
Fact: When we’ve recently played top 8 sides we’ve won - Warriors, Cowgirls, Manly and Saints.
Fact: We’ve never played a bad semi.
We will turn up next Friday. We will win.
We didn’t play well for sure, but I think everyone is underestimating the Sharks in saying that we should’ve smashed them. They may be 13th on the ladder, but they are a far better team than Penrith, Parra and the Titans this year. I’m just happy that we can play that bad and still beat them at home, tbh.
