A lot of those guys played in the games that were exciting finishes or nearly pulled out of the fire.Trell
Everyone shut up.
take 9 starting 13 players out of ANY side and they struggle. Bye next week. Judge them in round 21 when they might finally have a full roster.
Ive said this many times,i think he is better than iliasBefore we loose Taaffe and he signs elsewhere surely he has earned the opportunity to be given at least one game in the halves.
I watched him in the under 20’s play in the halves and was an absolute star !!
This is his rightful position and he has given his all over the last few years.
Letting him go will come back to bite us.
Im upsett, the refs are screwing us,JD IS 100% CORRECT there were 2 forward passes to trys not picked up, that game was all manufactured for the dogs,im sick of the commentary teams not being straight and shutting their gobs when they see the inequalities and being positive 1 way.I honestly don't know how to feel about that one. I really don't. Definitely hurting. I think that's the overwhelming feeling. Really disappointing. Gutted and angry after that, it's hard to describe. But on the other hand, you do have to be proud. A stack of players out and the boys gave it a real shake in the end.
I think I'm more disappointed, gutted, and angry than proud though. I know we were severely depleted but honestly, I expected better than some of the stuff that went on out there, especially defensively. Some really poor stuff in defence once again, weak as piss at times and made the Bulldogs look a lot better than what they are. It was back to being wet paper towel stuff and that is just not good enough. Yea, some of these guys are inexperienced but they're better than that. They're better than some of the efforts shown. I said this game was all about attitude and our attitude in defence was just way off. This is what lost us the game in my opinion.
I'm also disappointed in some of the efforts coming out of our own end in the first half. There seemed to be a lack of desire and energy, hence why we couldn't get out of our end. Granted, this did pick up in the second half.
We looked pretty good with a bit of momentum behind us, really good. The Dogs struggled to handle that; it was promising but we kept bringing ourselves undone most of the time when we really needed to ice it.
Don't even get me started on that ref performance. One of the worst, most incompetent, biased refereeing performances I have seen in a long time. We were refed out of the game. I've only just calmed down to be honest.
I guess we should be kind of proud though and shouldn't be too hard on these guys. Take nine top players out of any team and see how they perform. Some of the guys really put their hand up. We shouldn't read too much into it.
However, I'm just spewing that another game we should be winning slips away. It hurts. really feeling it right now.
No you read it all wrong. Entirely miss the point. Little things lead to teh bigger goal and winning this game, despite the absentees had to be a PRIORITY, because all the others are winning every game and gapping us. Personally I do not care if Mitchell and the others return if we end up between 5-8 who cares its over jet them rest for 6 months!!!You are on drugs dude. The obsession with Brad Fittler is getting old. They are missing 7 elite players. Get over it.
Good Point. We have suffered from very poor COACHING. The man did the same thing he did against St George a month ago. Same sort of line-up, same result. That too ended in embarrassment.Who f**king cares about Penrith.
we support south’s don’t we?
9 missing. Move on.
Its all a matter of positioning for the bigger picture. We have failed gone 2-5 in a soft section of the Schedule and conceeded over 30ppg in FIVE of them. Conceeded 36 to St George and Canterbury. Pathetic. These sides do NOT really have many genuine A Graders. I watched Canterbury against Newcastle they were horrible. A week later we make Burton look unstoppable but he SUNK against Newcastle and before that Cronulla, he drowned.Munro and Duncan are the future well played lads. We could’ve given up under adversity but we didn’t against a side with more first graders than we had tonight I am proud they didn’t throw in the towel I wasn’t expecting to win.
Losing Hame as his daughter is very sick apparently in hospital also didn’t help.
Fittler raided our team for a dead rubber we have Cody tonight we win 13 plus.
All good the boys will band together we will be back JD will fire them up with the mentality everyone is against us and we will use it as fuel.
Injuries and origin have cruelled us but we will be back and go on a run soon! And come finals teams like Sharks from last year won’t wanna play us in finals
