    Choking again in a finals game, whats the go?

    i just doubt their mental toughness. For mine, whilst they are the most gifted team going around, they aren't enough of a team

    Anyways that is just my thoughts on it

    You didn't upgrade your reel like you said you were going to mate.

    Which shop did you buy the worms from? Mind if I take the line for a while?

    :lol: :D

    Wouldnt say they are the most gifted but most overhyped.

    The likes of Hornby, Young and Creagh are good first graders and thats it although Creagh could become better.

    Ryles is the biggest cat playing the game, the most overrated on the dragons team.

    I anticipated the wests tigers win last night. The Dragons definitely do appear to lack mental toughness, and their week off combined with thier inconvincing performance in the first week definitely didn't help them.

    I think one thing that doesn't help clubs like Parramatta and St George is that they are very prominant and high profile sydney clubs who are in big premiership draughts. I believe that the added pressure on the guys who actually play in these teams who seem to fall short are victoms off the massive hype and expectation around them.

    Throw in a team like Tigers from 2005 or Penrith from 2003 though and they get the whole fair tale thing going and can use this to their advantage and sneak up on the higher profile clubs.

    Same thing happened with those Roosters. They hadn't won a prem for who knows how long until they got it in 2002. They choked in 2000 then came back stronger in 2002. But since then they have been choking so its not a good sign for the Dragons and Eels.

    I think Nathan Brown is a problem for the dragons. I can see him being a very good coach in years to come, but he lacks experience at the moment. If the dragons had a coach with more experience like Sheens or Bennett I think they would have won a premiership, but that said the coach doesn't make you drop balls & miss tackles.
