I hope O’Brien keeps the answers short in the presser. I would not give them anything. The media are always trying to pump up the tyres of sides around us as playing below their best. the crowds are going to be huge at home. The Souths game could sell out.

That was terrible, but at least we got the points.

I don’t like blaming the refs but the ref and the bunker completely f**ked us over.

Didn't play anywhere near our best, got some dud calls & still got the win is all that matters in the end

Beside that when was the last time we won 5 in a row? 6th place right now!
I'm pretty sure the last time we won 5 in-a-row under AOB, we went on to lose our next 5... So there's that...

We needed this 2 points badly.

We can't afford to to think we'll roll the Bulldogs again next week either.

The hope remains alive everyone.

Got out of jail a bit with that late penalty but we were due a call, Gagai's penalty, them not checking the obstruction on Frizell and then the strip which just looked like Wallace trying to offlaod, plus a few other ones against us all very dubious.

Anyway a W is a W, would have been a super frustrating loss because the Dolphins are pretty terrible. A guess the positive is that we were due a down performance, played decent for about 15 minutes total and still won. Now temporarily in 6th on the ladder and 3 in a row at home!

I think we won 6 or 7 in a row in 2021 then shit the bed in the middle of the year then limped into 7th.

The “strip” on Wallace was Ponga all over the ball making sure he didn’t score, then Wallace just let the ball go.
Anyway, that performance definitely dampens my confidence in the team but it keeps us in line to make the finals. We need to be careful because we could easily lose any of our upcoming games and not make the 8 even against teams not going well if we don’t play well.

Mann was used well today, gave Crossland the middle of the game off but I think Mann did stay on a little long. Got himself a try which was great. So did Crossland!

Ponga is a class above anyone else in the league. Good to see Marzhew get a try because he was shot for confidence out there. We're going to miss Dom...
