    We've been poor for 5 or 6 weeks, but we've been lucky enough to be on the right side of the scoreboard at the end of the match. Tonight we ran out of luck.

    You can't say the effort hasn't been there for all of those games, but everything else is really just missing.

    Our only hope in this comp is that we're fully fit come Finals and the Panthers, Storm and Roosters have half their squad out injured or suspended.

    DBrown has been garbage for most of the last couple of months, Blake is a liability beyond belief in defence, and Sivo is out of form. Without Gutho, Junior, RCG and NBrown we'd be a bottom 4 side.

    The scoreboard at the end of the match for the last 6 weeks has really masked our deficiencies. You can only be in denial for so long.

    Our attack from set situations has been embarrassing from round 1.

    Let’s hope BA wasn’t ‘comfortable’ in this game as well. We were shit.

    Not sure you can say the effort was there tonight. Very soft performance.

    It had to happen. We had to come down to the ground at some point. It was a long time coming. There is no attack in this team.

    Today there was no defence either. Dragons should be 6 ahead, that was a bullshit call taking the try off them.

    Lazy dumb f**ken merkins. This has been building for a few weeks and it hasn’t been addressed.

    This has been coming for a while. Team has been playing really poorly for a while and it finally caught up to us. Hopefully this is the wake up call we needed.

    Moses has to cop a lot of the blame for this one. We had plenty of opportunities, his decisions and positional play was f**king ordinary.

    The effort is always there, our execution has become embarrassing.

    The luck has mostly been on our side for the last 5 to 6 weeks really due to the effort. There's been little more to it really.

    We look like we spend 15% of our time working on attack.

    To many excuses for poor performances, winning close games against lesser opposition has been pasting over this.

    Gutherson made 30 carries, which is one of the reasons we only scored two tries.

    Nothings been addressed. We’re making the same errors week in week out. We won’t make an impact in the finals. We’ll limp out just as we’ve limped in.

    Agreed. I’ve sung Moses’ praises but he needs learn how to to run an attack again. He can’t create an overlap.

    I really think we’re missing Johns being out of the bubble. It’d be hard for him to provide meaningful input speaking through a fence.
