    Mate we got pumped from the first minute onwards, the whole team could of played 5 trials and we still would of got pumped with the attitude and effort we showed up with. The players talking about match fitness is a cop out to me, I'm sure there are many players out there who didn't get a good run in the trials who didn't play shit. Watch Jason Taylor's interview prior to the tigers game, he was asked about woods, Moses, brooks and Tedesco not playing trials and literally said "we don't trials to get fit we train hard for months in the offseason". Now he isn't a great coach but he's an experienced first grader and he had no reason to make excuses. Oh and the tigers didn't look like they were lacking match fitness despite a number of them not playing trials.

    Where did I say we didn't play shit from the start?

    My point is at 12-4 it would be game on with a fit and firing team. It will take a few weeks to get to that stage.

    If Hunt and GI aren't injured the WT may of lost. They also had Farah playing against them. We seemed uninterested and like we thought just turning up would get the win

    Not enough "hard heads" just young blokes who did not know how to deal with a new situation. Read their own headlines.

    We never built momentum against the Dragons.

    Every time we'd get the ball back, you'd have someone like Packer take one of our returners' head off.

    We can't be losing the penalty count by 9 with a few minutes left only to get a couple of pity penalties at the end to make the count look better.Where do we make our metres from?By the time our back three are sluggishly getting up, the other team's had enough time to advance off their line to completely nullify our forwards.

    Not trying to distance away from how the team performed, which was one of the worst I've see live, but some food for thought.

    If we only get a penalty every 20 mins on average, we're asking for some amazing yardage from our forwards who have been tired out from a Dragons team(that miraculously were legally quick off their for the entire game, maybe except for once?) bashing them before they could even take a step.If we concede a penalty on average around every 7 minutes, we're asking for some flawless defence(you can make up your mind as to whether or not we achieved that).

    So a mixture of shit refereeing, shit defence and expectations making our team play poor across the board.

    I'm sick of dropping games to garbage teams with complete morons as fans.We simply cannot go 0-2 this weekend, our chances of achieving anything worthwhile this year essentially depend on it.

    Well if they can't get up for this game after the shit they served up last week then they really are struggling.

    Our chances of achieving anything this year do not ride on tomorrows game. Give the kids a chance to figure it out. If Merrin and Tamou put it all out there, the rest will follow.

    I don't think the Tigers are a shit team at all. I think they'll struggle if they get injuries but their top 17 is pretty strong. If they show up at Campbelltown its going to be a tough match no matter how we play.

    I've got a feeling we will show up tomorrow. Expecting a huge game from our forward pack.

    Think positive boys!

    Glad hes not returning early. I cant imagine he will be better than Edwards in his first game of the year. So we might aswell play it safe with him.

    Although DWZ and Blake ripped Tigers apart last time we faced them. Would have been good seeing them do it again.

    Fangs...I think we have no show of winning as the whole team has no motivation, and Tedesco is really up for a good game, so he will be picked for SOO.He will beat us by himself.

    I'd put you in contact with Tim Simona but he's not in first grade for some reason.

    I'm nervous.

    Like the return of Akauola. I think he and Kikau will give us a lot of energy from the bench. +1 for Griffin.

    Bad luck for Browne, but stoked to see Kikau finally given a chance.
