    I just rewatched the match. Had a semifinal feel about it. Good grinding win.

    I felt like that at the game. The warriors put in for 80mins and where far more intense.
    We didnt get warm and up to the level untill 2nd half where we where the better side.
    Great game of footy

    I love how every article I have read about yesterday’s game, has no mention of the two tries they scored, on the back of what were absolute blatant knock on’s... seriously... seems to prove the theory that often journalists read each other’s crap and write a story based on that, rather than have watched the game and come up with an independent viewpoint. #fakenews

    I thought the Warriors were the better team but they certainly didn't get the rub of the green. I was sitting on a great angle for that RTS try and it was 100% forward. Just because the referees miss those forward passes 90% of the time, it doesn't mean they should be lynched when they actually call it correctly!

    The Gutho strip was the only dodgy call that went against them, we had at least 5 against us and no one seemed to give a shit.......maybe because it is a weekly occurrence?

    Our defence is still diabolical and our inability to chase hard for kicks and pressure the opposition are big issues. We don't appear to enjoy the collision, which is bizarre for a collision sport........

    You're examples come from when he misses a single tackle, then people point out to you when a Turbo or Tedesco do the exact same thing.

    Being shit at organising the line of defence and actual defence are 2 different things. You are smarter than that and HJ said not one thing about Gutho's actual defence and you still tell him you agree that his defence needs work.........

    I think you are harsh on Gutho to be edgy or something, or maybe it is because your Panthers don't have an established fullback at the moment?

    Never seems in position to help stop a try being scored, particularly out wide, why is that?

    Where are the mods, ban this imposter. I don't death ride our team but point out its obvious flaws. Flaws that a decent coach can see and should fix up, but 2 years later they are still there. We have the makings of a great backline held back by poor forwards.

    Because he’s usually needed on the other side of the field from the previous play. If merkins did their job in the defensive line, Gutho wouldn’t need to be involved in these previous plays and may have a better chance of covering the edges.

    They missed more tackles than us. But had more LBAs.

    Seven of the current NRL coaches have a winning record against Brad Arthur:

    80% Brown
    75% Bellamy
    71% Robinson
    70% Stuart
    67% Bennett
    67% Green
    67% Seibold

    These coaches have won (and lost) half their games against him:

    50% Kearney
    50% Morris

    And these are loosers vs Arthur's:

    44% Hasler
    40% Maguire
    33% Pay
    30% Cleary
    14% McGregor

    Dylan Edward's is a far better defender but his attack isnt nrl level.
    Luke's try from dummy half shows Guthersons defenss close to line. He stand far too upright and needs to drive and stay lower when defending close to line.

    We weren't nearly as bad as one would assume from reading this thread. And the forward pack had a some very good contributions. I thought Paulo Evans and Brown were great. Alvaro was solid. I deliberately watched him the whole time he was on. Kaufusi also good in limited minutes.

    Tepai also made his normal 30mtrs.
    Gower was ok. Bit sluggish but good enough

    I would love for you to show me some of this greatness from Edwards?

    Oregon needs more game time. Id like him to feel more comfortable out there and start running with some purpose and venom. Needs to ditch the pointless upper body shimmy too. He has Stefano on his heels now and after yesterday might lose his spot.
