18-10 is pretty good considering our injuries and everything going against us. What really hurts is that we would most likely have won that game with all things being equal, possibly last week as well.
All I know is I’m getting really sick of having to talk about the referees every week. Their increasing influence on whether we can even compete in a game or not is bordering on criminal. I honestly don’t know what the club has done to tick them all off so much. Something needs to be done about it, someone needs to call this out publicly, something needs to change, otherwise what’s the point of us even being in the comp anymore.
Yup, it’s driving me away from the game - and the worst thing is the media make absolutely no mention of it. It’s just, oh yah the Tigers, they tried but they’re just not good enough. You never hear our games disected and analysed fairly, ever.
That LM coat hanger on Reynolds… the similarities between that and what BJ did is uncanny, yet the commentators made no mention of it and the refs, of course, didn’t even look at it.
It’s seriously bizarre.
I agree and said similarly last week, so this is just more of the same from the officials with regard to WT. It shows clearly when I say that Henry Perenara has probably been the most “fair” ref for us this year. That’s a pretty low benchmark.
Yep besides our lack of discipline (which we almost overcame in the end) this was the most disappointing thing for me.
Joey coathangers someone off the ball last week, gets sent off & a 4 week suspension. Mitchell does it this week & gets the penalty to put his team in an attacking position. How does that work? I’d like Madge to ask the league this word for word. It’s just ridiculous the bias for & against some teams.
It would be good if Brooks moved to 5/8 in 2021 and we had a shot at an organising / game leading half. Unfortunately I don’t see any available.
Would love to see that as a combo with brooks and Madden
Blake Green will be off contract…
I’d pick him when his (assumes) suspension is over. He owes us a win & hopefully the time out gives home time to see the error of his ways. He had some great runs last night & looked very dangerous but I thought he played pretty selfishly. He could’ve put Nofo over easily in the first half but went himself (did the same in the GF to rapana).
On a positive note, his brother is killing it. Hope he is right for next week.
I thought he was good for the most part. Very busy, good link play & some offloads which we’ve missed. But he missed the tackle on Koroisau that lead to their winning try (along with MCK). Probably just tiring a bit towards the end with McIntyre off but definitely adding some value to the team.
