In the 12th minute, the Titans received the ball from the kick off and, without a single long-range line-break, went 81 metres in five tackles before scoring.
This isn't rule changes or fatigue or crackdowns or injuries or BBQs or suspensions - it's just garbage.
If this is the product of our defensively-minded, old school disciplinarian coach then may as well write off 2022 as well.
Agree on the offloads. We don’t have much second phase play normally and even less today. Titans looked like the Storm with their offloads…..
Absolutely right on the mark.They did make huge yardage against us. That’s what baffles me with Hook and the coaches. If he is an old school defensive coach we shouldn’t be leaking these yards and scores. We mightn’t look pretty but our defence should be first rate. That‘s what Bennett did, defence first then the attack eventually came.We seem to be just all over the shop….
sims very disappointing,cant remember a club game he played well in.Exactly. Shows you the mentality of Sims that he didn’t make it his own to take Fifita on and assist a clearly out of his depth Ramsey
Sims has been very poor for us since 2018 semi. I’d let him go next year.
Mate, you are one of the most level headed posters here. I admire that.
However, we got smashed by a piss poor Titans team...... even by their low standards.
Today was make or break. BBQ gate doesn't cut it. We had enough there to win, but this mob is disjointed and dare I say divided.
Hooks job now is not to focus on 2021, but to clear the deadwood, and find a way to gel this team. Watching players turn on each other says it all.
Easy mate just tell them wrong number ......The Dragons offered Qld Red V members a chance to Zoom with their favourite Dragons players this coming Tuesday in lieu of the typical face to face sessions. In a moment of optimism late last week I applied.
Sad thing is now I really have nothing to say. If I get picked, I’ll just be shaking my head for the duration of the call.
Feagia and Sullivan deserve to keep their spots for rest of year Dufty has lost interest give Sloane every second week for more experience.It's hard to blame this loss on anything but BBQgate. If not for that we have a full strength team minus Rava on the paddock - no suspensions and Vaughan leading the way, a completely different team. We had just 6 of the starters playing in their usual positions and some rookies. Titan's are crap we know but we did it to ourselves long before kick off. The ridiculous amount of errors didn't help but we do that every week. I'll admit the team selections were perplexing - Last week Kerr plays 2nd row for 80 minutes, makes good metres and 40 tackles, this week 23 minutes at prop. Last week JDB played really well as starting prop this week he's a bench prop. Bird to 2nd row ??? and Ramsey at centre when we know Titans love to go wide especially using Fifita out there.
Feagai did really well, we need more like him.
strong post! See it similar.Hi All, nothing against Gold Coast but they are an ordinary side also. We had a very limited side in today. Everyone on commentary saying how great Fifita is; he ran at Cody Ramsey twice and pushed past … big deal. Let’s see him run against Justin Olam. Our big metre eater Vaughan is gone, Rava suspended for tackling well, Williame injured, Lomax sitting around on reported $650k ( slowpoke anyway) and Alvaro sitting around ( at least makes ground)
Sullivan didn’t look anything out of the box. Probably gassed as hasn’t played much football. Went ok and gets involved.
Ben Hunt is a class player behind a bog terrible pack. We have been persevering with Lawrie and Kerr for so long. Time to offload.
Fegai looks pretty good
Cody Ramsey is looking worse as time goes on. I hate saying that as he tries his best. He looked the goods in his 1st NRL game last year but the sun is slowly setting on an NRL career.
We have recruited McGuire who looks like James Graham mark 2. Very pedestrian player.
Tariq Simms played well in a beaten side. Giving his all.
please recruit fast players Hook. Our recruitment is awful.
If we are going to have players like Ramsey and Dufty in the team (small) we need to play to their strengths. At no point did we create a situation where they could shine. Alternatively, the Titans knew exactly what to do with Fifita, swap him to Ramsey's side. Done.
