That decision was terrible.

Very hard to win a game when your n09 and n07 are having a poor day. Listen to the press conference and Taylor like every other loss could see so much positives to take out of the game. Okay we defended with passion and showed ticker but we lost at home to the team coming last, to me that is a massive negative and can not be sugar coated

Our 9 and 7 may not have produced their best but Robbie had a possibly broken but definitely injured cheekbone while Brooks has a possibly broken thumb. Add to this we lost Woods and Halatau plus a short turnaround and I think the boys went OK and will be much better next week (depending on the injury situation). The addition of Lawrence and Taupau certainly won't do us any harm.

yeh definitely not JT's fault this week.

we were just weak up the front- couldn't get over the advantage line and let them get over every tackle.

We ran outta juice.
15 men (two main forwards ) for 60 minutes on a five day turnaround.
Knights knew it too

I thought it was a high quality game (surprisingly )
Very tough to win when you lose 2 big minute players.
Once the other middle third players got tired the game was lost.
We certainly didn't have the bench depth to cover it.
We are playing a much more attractive style at the moment, Moses is starting to show the world why he has so many wrapson him.
