what a game

we should have won it early, but raiders should have beaten us with our poor handling
thankfully we came out on top

crowd was HUGE!

Yeah he was solid without being great. The game will do him good.

He played alright. Made a few errors and wasn't huge in attack. He was a little Tim Moltzen in some of his kick returns (didn't offer much and was dominated).Was taken off around the 65th minute I think for Fitzhenry to come on. I remember him being an awesome tackle breaker a few years ago for the Warriors (he still made a few today though). Hopefully he can get some confidence back and that will start to happen again for him.

Not too sure what I'm seeing here, we should have scored quite a few more, but then they should have scored a couple more themselves.

What's the go with Beau and Lote picking up the ball from kicks then throwing hospital passes to Wade??? Run the ball guys!!!

Benji kicking on the 1st tackle on a fairly low percentage play in the first half, especially considering Lote was only hobbling around earlier.

Chris should have backed himself in the first half rather than trying to pass to Lote.

A lot of dropped ball with the line open, glad they got the win but they did it tough on themselves

Our execution was dreadful, but our defence was strong enough to keep us in it. We stuck to it and got a good win.

I thought he was poor. No real mistakes but he didn't look good. Fitzy was a real step up.

I thought the tigers were playing too sideways for Wade to make any impact. Maybe it was harder for him to read the plays that were totally new to him. Once the Tigers get running up the middle of the ruck, then Wade will show his class in support play imo. Tigers didn't do this today.

I really thought Wade was solid. At no time did he look like he was going to drop a catch and he runs the ball back like a champion, hard and straight.

You have to give him more than 2 weeks to learn the team structure and create something more than that.

Defensively on kicks, Wade was solid.

Notice no one blaming Fitzhenry for anything. That is because he has not had a bad game in all our wins. Hopefully that final try will shut up the chronic whingers for once and for all.

The benefit of being the freshest man on the park after both teams have tackled themselves into exhaustion for over an hour. Having said that Fitzy provided a spark, while McKinnon was solid in his first hitout for the club.

The hospital passes were done because literally both loti and beau had come off second best after some tackles in the first 40. Just bad timing to be getting the ball, however I though Mckinnon was solid at fullback, and he looked like he belonged in that team.

Good to get the points.

I'm glad we dint put 40 on Canberra, as this way we might be more focused for Friday. The guy hung in there and just got home. Now for the Dragons with Mark Gasnier???

Yes he has. Fitzy was woeful in our win over the Cowboys. One of the worst individual performances I have seen in 5 years, That being said, since then they guy has said a big stuff you to his critics (myself included) and played some solid footy.
