    Exactly St.Georgio , the media has been shining our tool since the beginning of the season . We have been put on a pedestal that is so high that I was beginning to get dizzy. I would had preferred the Dragons to had been flying under the radar - but it's a bit hard when they have the team as the premiership favourites .

    We will win the comp, but Gordan Tallis should say sorry,for his bubbler act and his Rusty Crowe!

    Today wasn't a good effort. From kickoff they dropped the pill and let in a 4 pointer. It wasn't their day.
    Next week they will bounce back against Raiders at home(mudgee) and all will be back to normal.
    On a positive I thought Lomax was amazing today. ;)

    nit having ago as I
    Agree with some points but I’ve been hearing and reading our next few weeks will define our season for the last month we lost a game as sides do in this comp we’ll bounce back like good sides do and if I read the players are still scarred by the slump last year I’ll vomit the only people scarred by 2017 are the lunatics on this forum we’ll eat Canberra as they are shit we’re a good side playing good footy on top of the table

    id like to just personally congratulate young ZAC LOMAX for his official debut in first grade....shame about him sitting there freezing his arse off for most of the game we feel you brother! but even though we had a loss he IS a future superstar!
    well done for making it finally to first grade! keep your head up your time WILL come!

    Congrats also to REECEY ROBSON for last week, a star of the future also! your time WILL come aswell!

    Our bench selections have been stupid all year... however to choose this week to have 2 backs on the bench was pure lunacy. Souths have one of the biggest forward packs going around, combined with the wet conditions and it was always going to need a bench stacked with big bodies.... I have said from day 1, we are winning macthes despite Mary’s constant efforts to stuff it.

    Before everyone sits their wrists, 7 of our 10 games so far have been against the current top 8, plus 2 other games against the current 9th and 10th and the 15th team who we put 50 on.

    Your right Walpole - we need to understand that not only is the premiership won in May , it is not lost neither , unless your Parramatta . Long way to go before its time to bring out the trusty old cutthroat razor .

    we were due.

    they were up for it just as we were last week against the storm.
    and now we know what the storm have endured for 10 years.

    i don't think the players believed the media hype. it's just hard to be up every single week when the opposition is treating it as a yardstick.

    i thought the team put in a decent enough effort, and i don't think any player was deserving of a bullet.
    i just hope a lesson was learnt by both the team & us.

    How often do we see a team loose when dropping the ball or loosing position in the first 5 minutes. It was one if those days for the dragons.

    - Debelin played injured. Should not have played.
    - Hunt played with corked thigh

    My notable deficiencies remain.

    1.Nightingale coming in off the wing.
    And having 5 tries scored on his wing
    Over recent weeks. Clubs have exploited this weakness.
    We need to look ahead to resolve this.

    2. McInnis loose passes from dummy half need attention. I've seen this a few times this year.

    Otherwise I am still positive about this team.

    Jordan Pereira is killing it on the wing in ISP with 6 tries in his last 2 games: big and fast and worth a run from the bench to give Lomax a go and Nightingale the veteran a rest.

    off day for sure - they were a bit loose and low on energy compared to Bunnies. We may have become a warm weather side, definitely suits widdop and hunt. Hoping for a dry and warm September !!!

    The better side won yesterday...

    South's defense was really good and they frustrated us into making mistakes. They did get a lot of luck on their side (not talking refs) i.e. Reynolds hitting the post and getting the ball back, Dufty slipping, and the ball coming off Widdop's foot.

    On a positive note, despite Souths being on top throughout the game, we were still in it. We had opportunities to get back in it but kept making mistakes.

    No one's going through undefeated. We could easily implode and lose 8 of the next 10. But even if we go on and win the comp we're going to lose another 5 or 6 before the season's over.

    In '79 we lost 2 out of 2 against the scum. We even lost to Penrith in round 2 at Penrith Park. (Anyone remember who else we lost to that year? I'm dredging my memory and can't come up with the others).

    Now that's the spirit and don't forget to call for a good sound flogging of those responsible because that is what we put up with yesterday.
