Illawarra Steelers played tonight
We lost Host early, and Mary threw Nightingale into the second row. He was getting dominated all game. It was such a dumbf**k move, and i'm not one to bag the coach.
Up 30-28 with 14 minutes to go is a good effort, someone was always going to crack... Just had to be us tonight.
We just had to lose by less than 16 to retain first spot and we failed.
Good, merkins can stop deathriding us now
That game was a cracker. Anybody that can't see that doesn't know how to rugby league.
Stupid stupid decision. Otherwise a great game.
Shit thing is that we were nigh on perfect for the first 65 minutes. Melbourne weren’t - 3 times after scoring they invited us back into the games with open arms. Then we were the ones who fell apart.
Should of put flo on wing & Mann at 7 for 2night & put extra forward on bench. That was disgraceful tonight wow!! Let’s see how they come bak from this. A Bennett or Bellamy coached team would not of lost like that tonight.
If we win another game this season I will be surprised.
You are cooked
Flo must not be anywhere near first grade.
Losing Host killed us, and of course Bellamy and Smith would know where to target us.
Nichols in his first game, Nighty defending at 2nd row, and Aitken who can be defensively suspect. That’s where it all fell apart.
I liked how we hung tough for 65 mins but eventually it proved too much.
We need to bounce back big time against the Tigers.
Lost 3 from last 5 games.
Mary is returning to form.
Well there goes my bet about being July Premiers.
Sorry am I missing somethi
sorry am I missing something? We are still top of ladder aren’t we?
Nope, second, Bunnies passsed us with the bye,
I guess the positive is that we only had like 5 shots in the attacking zone and scored on 4 of them (although they have a similar argument about playing reserve graders etc). They gifted us chances, but we took them!!
No we haven't.
Yeah but defence wins games, especially finals, god help us if we lose JDB or Frizell for any length of time.
I’d rather be second now than in October.
I expect we should lose 1-2 more games through the regular season. As long as we win our last 1-2 regular season games and finish top 4 we are going into finals with momentum.
The reality is it’s extremely difficult to string together 5+ wins, especially against top teams only. So winning last 2 season games plus 3 finals games = a premiership.
