    That was a game that we should have won. We just lack some class plus we aren't disciplined enough in attack.

    Reynolds is starting to look good. Benji is looking slow and old. Fonua is a beast but he makes mistakes and he is slow. Thompson is quality but not a game breaker. Maybe a bigger winger scores that try although I'm not giving him a hard time. He is our most consistent player. Masters has been good at times but today he was real bad. Same as Chee-Kam.

    Our middle forwards are pretty good though but Packer doesn't make many metres per hit-up. He doesn't really threaten at all with his runs. Matulino, Twal, Eisenhuth and Aloiai are all dangerous up the middle. We don't though have a good dummy half that is taking advantage of those plays but Reynolds made a difference today. He was good.

    I'd love to see Mbye here now.

    We had our chances to win it, but obviously didn't take them.
    Reynolds certainly makes a difference.

    They were good. They still have real good players all over the park. We put in as well. We aren't fading out of games too often this season.

    With our limited attack we can’t afford to play dumb,unfortunately that wasn’t the case today,time and again we gifted the ball back to the opposition preventing us from scoring,Sure we copped a bad call when Ferguson dropped the ball on his line,but overall we played pretty dumb for a majority of the game.

    The farcical Ferguson dropped ball penalty was a joke

    Then not getting a penalty in the last minute, particularly the tackle whew JWH lay on us for an hour

    Yep we played dumb, but so did the roosters. They didn’t deserve to win anymore then we did

    I think it’s pretty obvious that we need some speed in our backline.

    Typical dumb plays at critical times killed us. That set before the Thompson no try was horrible. Needed to give it to Brooks instead of dicking around looking for a penalty that was never going to come.

    Lolohea is not a fullback, and ET can never play hooker again. If we get Mbye midseason, I'd go:

    1. Mbye
    6. Lolohea
    7. Brooks
    9. Reynolds
    14. Benji

    Reverse the roles this afternoon and we get pinged for sure and certain on those hold downs. It pains me that we get screwed over over time and time again.

    I don’t know what to make of Lolohea,last season he looked promising,this season although he has been hindered by a knee injury,looks unfit,uninterested and rarely gets involved,as a professional footballer his time in the NRL may be limited if he doesn’t start to offer more with his performances considering Moses Mybe is coming to our club.

    Rorters held us down all day and got away with it...I couldn’t imagine Bennet,Hasler,Stuart,Bellamy etc. putting up with the sh*t that the refs dish up to the WT if they coached us,it seems every 50/50 call goes against us when it suits because we are not a club that comes forward publicly and gives them an open and honest opinion of their usual sh*t performance after games.

    well by now you all saw the above pic and the one showing Fonua wasn’t out at the death but to me the biggest worst call was that marker penalty when the chooks dropped it with 10 to go.

    Fair dinkum, I am nearly 60 and could out run Lolo. If he is injured put someone else there but he is a joke at the moment.

    Mahe is all brawn and no brain. In that last play he should have come in closer to Lawrence to then give himself room to move....dumb play.

    I agree, we need speed and some quality to go with it.

    I thought JWH must have been TRYING to get binned...he laid all over him TWICE as long as would normally earn a penalty .i'd love to hear a refs boss explanation of why no bin and 2 points. I can't remember seeing anything as blatant.
    Anyway....i hope Mbye arrives asap.....i wished Thompson had stayed at FB would probably have been there inside of Fanua on that last play. I thought Grant busted a gut...i'd take Kev back in for Fanua untill they can get the recklessness out of him....it's just too expensive in today's game

    The bounce of the ball went against us today and that is a game we should have won, and will probably cost us a top 8 spot at the end of the year.

    Lols must go. I was calling for his return thinking it would be best overall for the team but he doesn't put in. It looks to be an attitude thing. Thommo played much better at fullback and should go straight back there unless we can get mbye straight away. Either way lols can go back to reggies.

    I have to say that was our best defensive performance for many weeks. Shit we played dumb in attack. IC has done an outstanding job this year but 9 is an important position FFS.......

    I guess while I'm still ranting I can appreciate the enthusiasm of Reynolds and that he may pump up those around him but he has a few dumb plays in him and just doesn't look around for those with room to move.

    I don't know who held up the pass but Packer should have been in under the posts!!!!

    I'll take it back if it wasn't Reylonds but someone f##ked up.

    Commiserations mate but what I can't understand is how Packer only makes say 6 hit ups for 40m. He was making over 100 at the Dragons. In the NrL 40metres a starting prop doesn't cut it. Neither does only playing Matulino for 34mins. It's not good coaching.
