Saints are awful

Post by Eddie » Mon 09 Mar, 2015 8:43 pm

Anyone watching this??

They look like they all just met each other. Clueless in attack. It's actually ugly to watch just how out of sync they are. Dugan looks like he is injured and Benji has been average.

We have seriously been gift wrapped these opening 2 rounds this season.

I mean don't get me wrong we were no better then them this week. However at home, off a 9 day turn around surely we can beat this mob.

Otherwise were just making up the numbers and in for a long year.

I have only watched the second half and agree. Terrible.

However, Koro has looked a million dollars. If Mann wasnt a ball hog Koro would have had at least 2 tries in the second half.

Sure are. They pounded the Storms line for the entire first half, and the Storm didn't even break a sweat. Very ordinary side, and they'll be even more ordinary if Dugan is out.

They might be awful now, but will no doubt improve by next week though.

Its only stating the truth so far. Based on what they showed tonight, they are a bottom 4 side. Granted we made it tough for ourselves as well, but we didn't spend an entire half attacking the Titans tryline and coming up short.

Storm have been there clinical best..I think the Dragons forwards have been OK but there late tackle options pretty ordinary....Nabuli had a good debut Kev will have his hands full...

Still Rd 1 so can't take much from it....

The Dragons were average but they were playing a possible top five team. We were playing the team that has been penciled in for the spoon,who also had a few quality players unavailable and just fell over the line.

From what I have seen this week,their is a massive gap between a few good sides and than their is a traffic jam of battlers below them.

For a lot of teams 2015 will be a lottery every week.So next week at Cambo it's anyone's guess who will get the bacon

Look don't get me wrong. The Dragons towelled us up twice last season.

And it showed eventually that those results showed we were miles off the pace.

If we can't beat them at home we are on struggle street. I don't think the Storm are a top side this year, not by any means. However they are always hard to play against.

They'll fire up agaisnt us, they always do.

But you have to question McGregor and their depth. Worst depth in the comp, a couple of serious injuries away from a spoon.

One thing I've learnt over the last couple of seasons - don't bother basing a side's previous game to how they will play in the next game (unless the teams are the heavyweights). All the other teams are constantly up and down - you just don't know what kind of team is going to show up half the time. It always seems to happen to us as well - when a team plays bad the week before playing us they magically turn in the best side in the comp against us. Partly why I hoped the Dragons would win this week.
