    True Tru.

    Although I reckon if they punt McGregor, the team would respond to a new coach (whoever that is) or even if Shepard took over in the interim.

    McGregor = Handbrake...

    Don’t be so harsh on handbrakes.

    They can still pull off impressive performances:

    No way McIdiot is telling the players to follow a game plan because there is none. Dufty should have been in it all day dart from dummy half. No kicking game dying with it on the last. No pressure. Bombs in midfield absolutely no pressure. Run and passing shit no thrust.
    No they are not even doing themselves proud f.. K the coach they are better than that.

    I honestly thought we would beat a depleted Warriors side today.
    Instead, we made them look like world beaters.

    Price didn't get it, Mary doesn't get it either....
    You have to put pressure on the opposition with your defence.
    You have to move forward and reduce the space and time they have to do their plays.

    On so many plays our defence made no effort to move off their 10m mark.
    They just stood there and waited.

    No wonder the warriors barely made an error all night.
    No wonder they made 60+m on nearly every set.
    We can't win if we are starting every set on our 10m line.

    I am glad they wore the red strip today.
    The Red V should not be associated with such a poor performance.

    My real take aways from today are around the following bubbles that have burst if people are fair dinkum
    • Flanno & Shep have any tangible input.
    • Sims Bros Inc.
    • Dusty is the answer at 1 or winning the scrimmage at training as career coach put it.
    • Williame is anything more than a Superleague hac
    • Lawrie is a 1st grade prop that makes a difference.
    • Graham has any more games in him.
    • Our halves are ever going to combine.
    • Our halves would be sought after by any other team
    • That our wingers are actually a real big problem compared to other issues because without them today it would have been even uglier.
    • We practise kicking at training.

    I was very surprised how well we'd stuff it up big time.

    COVID19 restrictions have saved the Club even more embarrassment as after this, you’d have even more shrinking crowds to already declining crowd numbers.
    I swear I saw some of those Dragons Fans cardboard cutouts leave early too....

    Agree, we don't win this regardless but the calls didn't help.
    Did you see early in the 1st half, we were tackled on the last 2m out and the ref restarts them 10m out..... the lack of calls for slowing the play the ball when the Dragons were pinged twice early in the game.
    then there was the tackled in the air call, at least the commentators noticed this one.

    That was a rubbish performance, one of the worst ive seen. We are completely rudderless in attack. We need new halves and a new coach at an absolute minimum. Hopefully Hunt is injured, usually I wouldn't wish injury on anyone but I just cant see Clune been given a go without it. I will say though the ref really did look like they wanted to help that Warriors fairytale somewhat, not that we would have won anyway but we seemed to get pinged for everything while they seemed to get for nothing.

    Imagine if a decent team had completed that many sets against us.
