Our attacking coach needs to be boned.
If I hasn't been mentioned, we now have the best defence in the competition.
Too many stupid passes / offloads
But he wasn't alone in that regard.
His primary job is to make metres, and tackles, and he did that quite well.
Put 40 on the Storm tonight - "congrats - you beat up on a crippled team!"
Lose to the Storm tonight - "you suck - you lost to a crippled team!"
I agree - we were on a hiding to nothing.
I thought we looked better than we have in weeks, even despite our high error count.
We now have the best defense in the nrl ... you heard it here first
Breaking news - the Parramatta Eels have the number one defence in the competition.
Don't forget who broke the news, fellas.
One of our tries come from us getting a penalty when it should of been their ball.
They also missed a try by a marginal forward pass. I thought we where poor. They looked better drilled and stuck to the plan but lacked the big name players to execute. We seemed to play erratic.
Cronk and Anasta together is cringe worthy. We all know how stupid Anasta is but when you put Cronk next to him you have to wonder if he has even seen a game of footy before. I heard a bit of that tonight from brandy with Cronk there as well
It shouldn't have been their ball - they were offside. Them being offside over-rules the knock-on/forward pass/offside call.
They were better drilled, and looked better - and were held scoreless, and to fewer metres than we made.
If I had to power rank right now. I'd have 3 side infront.
I'd also be putting a small margin between us,raiders,knights and sharks. Even souths.
Tbh I wouldn't be confident beating any in finals.
No it didnt ... pay f**kin attention ... they were offside, hence the penalty preceded the knock on
And it was a f**kin forward pass ... even Brandy thought so
I assumed he meant eels fans
For me, I was worried that we had stalled; our defence has been strong all year, but our attack seemed to have pleateaud.
Despite making a lot of errors tonight, I felt we attacked with more fluidity, and purpose, than we have for more than 6 weeks; I honestly did not think we had this improvement in us, and so seeing that we are capable of improving from one week to the next excites me.
Are we Premiership favourites? Hell, no.
Will we keep improving, and be firing at the right time of the year? I believe so, yes.
Its 2 months til the GF ... i will freak out in october if we are playing like this
Born teams defended well, but our job was made pretty easy by the lack of talent in their spine.
Of course! I'd never try to steal his thunder!
Yeah but not every team has played this week.
Papendoogyhauser is elite ffs!!!
