We will take the win but that was ordinary.

Simpkin and Liddle are just trading injury stints at the moment. Possible injury to Hastings as well will see us screwed.

Was Lurch injured or hooked at the end?

It was good to see a win but not a lot to get excited about there. If the the dogs centre hadn't of had a brain explosion we were a big chance of blowing that.

Special mention to Joe O who has done a mountain of work the last couple weeks.

If Hastings is out for any games we lose them all

Ur last line is very telling.Can’t reinforce that view strongly enough.We are deadset fkd without JH.God help us if Brooks is to play at 7 again if JH was injured.

Probably should have won by 40, goal kicking kept the dogs in it.

End of the day just gotta take the win. We were missing 3/4 of our spine and 3 first choice backs. Thought Madden was best on ground.

Next week hopefully get Laurie, Simpkin, Nofa and Kepeoa back so will finally have some options in the backs.

Brown is a struggler, had a good game in the context of playing a shit team
Not bad tho for a player that was told just pass the ball, nothing fancy. Id be interested the last player to play less than half a game on debut and score 2 tries in the process. He may have saved us from what could have a been very embarrassing result... oh you mean smuggler

Might have got the win, but that second half was soft as butter. A bottom 4 performance.
But we are a bottom 4 team, ATM.
We had a lot of players out, (when was the last time we could field the same 17 every game?) players taken off for concussions, Jacko got 10 mins (where they scored most of their points?), we probably had 2 players playing who wouldn't have known all their team mates names?
I thought we got a bit clunky at the beginning of the 2nd half, but we come back strong.

But for me, the pleasing thing was, all the new boys, played pretty well. Something to work with for sure.

Enjoy the moment.

For a laugh on a rainy Saturday morning, get yourself to the kennel.
Select "the official round 11 Bulldogs v Tigers" thread.
It's 100 pages, but what else are you gonna do this morning ?
An absolute hilarious read !!
It goes from discovering Naden signed with us, and all their excitement he is gone . . . to how Gus is the man and he doesn't muck around. He gets things done.
Then a bunch of pages on how they are gonna beat us, ranging from 8-0, to 48-0.
This develops into reality for them for the next 10 pages as they re-inforce this in their weak heads. Willie Mason giving motivational talks is going to get them the W for sure.
The next 20 pages is near game day, and the unfounded winning mentality is reaching fever pitch. Beat this crap team and we jump them and Newcastle for 14th spot, and distance from the spoon !!!!
Wests are shit, Naden is shit, we beat them by 38 last time so all we have to do is do that again, Wests are shit.
All we have to to is run at Naden, spread the ball early, and score first to put maximum pressure on them and they'll fold. They are a shit team. We are the Dogs bro.
Finally, kick off . . . and their mood drops to gloom from the start. It's palpable. They seriously thought they were gonna ream us, and it soon turns into the ref robbing them.
The ref keeps robbing them till full time. They are politely unsure if Nu Brown got the ball down for his second.
The NRL are corrupt, the refs hate us.
Fkkng hilarious, I tells ya.

I was wondering y Kepoa was not in the team.I assumed he must’ve been injured coz he should’ve been in team ahead of tupou & Peachey.
