    Very gutsy win today.
    Could barely watch it but so glad they could get the win.
    Vaughan, Friz and most the fwds were immense. Well done by Norman again to come up with the clutch field goal.
    That was edge of the seat stuff.

    Me too. Not looking good for Sims, and with JDB, we can’t afford another injury or fatigue. McGregor’s gotta use that bench. I’d be looking at Kerr and another forward next week.

    Vaughan was awesome, again our forwards lead by him and Graham were great. T.Sims got owned a bit which is a first but it was to the biggest human in footy, Klemmer so that's OK. Friz was good too, big effort to get on the field, The young guys Host and Lawrie did good things but Lawrie should save the cross field running and just hit the ball up hard and straight . Man of the match though was Lafai, bloody champion. Why they didn't give him more ball is beyond me, he was obviously up for a big game.
    Not happy with Mary leaving K.Sims out there damaged, was he blind, the guy was injured, get him off you d*ck.

    I watched the Roosters the other night putting on a masterclass of timing, passing, running angles, using decoys and controlling the game completely. Everything worked for them, everyone knew when and where to run and pass and chase, so crisp and well drilled. I keep hoping Hunt and Norman can make that happen for us but they're a ways off you'd think.

    A wins a win and 2/4 is so much better than 1/4.

    Aitken is a real problem he costs us more points than he scores.Ray Charles if he was a coach would know to attack the right side.

    Winning most of these tight games early in the season and then hit our straps for the run into the semis is better than peaking too early like we did last season.

    If nothing else, it was a gutsy win in front of a vocal parochial away crowd. Vaughan, Friz, Sims & Graham will all sleep well tonight. Lafai & JP were good,Lomax has to be there but not in the forwards you clown(L plate) Rava was better. Why McInnes doesn’t run more is beyond me, especially in that golden point period.

    Kurt Mann would be very handy right now

    Perhaps the Novacastians would be willing to send him back to us ;)

    Only a Mart coached team could have made that into a GP game v a very poor Newcastle side. Yes we will enjoy the win but the elephant in the room is that we have to play at 150 percent to barely win, such is our standard of coaching.

    I didn't catch the game sadly. What were the injuries and how bad?

    I agree McInnes when he runs looks great
    His defence was exceptional tonight

    Exactly. It caused a domino effect. I don't think that was Aitkens fault.

    I don't think Hunt and Norman have clicked yet. Apart from one attacking play, they aren't doing anything spectacular. Will need to give them some time.

    Looks like Sims has a broken arm. Not sure about Host.

    That was what the fox commentators said also, Aitken had no choice but to go for the backrower.
