    Top 4 sides don't throw the towel in when they are 14-0 ahead even if the ref is against them.

    Haha... "THE REFS!!!!"

    Some Saints supporters are the biggest cry babies.

    OUR SOFT DEFENCE let the parra back in and gave them the momentum they needed.

    14-0. No one could care about the referees.

    We let them score from dummy half...TWICE.

    Game on. Game over.

    And that is why you don’t carry a centre on your bench...Norman gone, and the whole team fell apart. Piss poor effort after being up 14-0. One of the worse losses I’ve seen...and I’ve seen many from this mediocre club.

    Not so sure about that, looked like a bit of a boot clip by accident and Moses tripped over with plenty of dramatisation. Game was done by then anyhow. The refs were poor but in a brand new stadium, with all that support, they were bound to get all the calls. We had to be better than that, especially defensively.
    Saints were very poor and very lazy at times in defence.

    I'm failing to see why you guys always throw the blame to Mary every loss. It's like you dont watch the game and just assume Mary tells the players to make mistakes.

    Frizz dropping an easy ball when we had momentum.
    Mcinnes giving away dumb penalties and was the one who let in the first soft Parra try.
    Lomax was not good, dropped a couple balls and didn't pass to an unmarked Ravalawa and tried to go himself. But only Aitken can be criticised for that I suppose; cost us a try.


    No team would want to verse Parra at their fresh new stadium at this point in the year, they obviously play their best footy there.

    soft defnce.... K Sims and D belin also Frizzell gone at that time when the trys from dummy half were scored. Do you think we are the Roosters to cover our loss of players?

    I havent looked at it again so i might be wrong...but it looked like he put a hand on his back. The parra player may have milked it from there. If thats the case, penalty is expected.

    I didn't see too much wrong with the refs today. Of course, some tough 50/50s against us. The kickoff penalty was a surprise...i think he was a metre in front...that happens ALL the time though.

    Anyway, THE PLAYERS lossed it. Soft.

    Do you see our players as less than the Rooster or Storm players I don’t
    I see them as superior in skill the difference is the Coach our Team never seem to have a game plan we are not known for any sort of structure Our players don’t play off each other’s strengths and we don’t utilise our strengths and skill set and all that is the fault of the coaching staff not the players if we had a tactical coach like Hasler or Browny we would probably be defending premiers and on top today. Sack McGregor and offer the job to Kevin Walters or even Toovey, Barrett or Anthony Griffin because he had the panthers purring last year like McGregor never could and their roster was not as impressive as our own

    Unbelievable 47 mins of football....at 14 nil I thought the boys are really up for this game and were playing out of their skins...and then we fell into that dark hole thats becoming oh so familiar ..poor discipline, gaping holes in defence...half arsed attempts at tackling by some.....dubious refereeing decisions and obviously some poor direction at half time by McGrexit......
    FMD how can a team play so well for the majority of the first half then capitulate like we did.....we made Gutherson and co look like workd beaters,....not for a long time have I seen so much space given to an opposition team in attack...sure Klein didnt help our cause but that happens to teams every week....what really pisses me off is week in week out when the wheels start to fall off we have no plan B.and the sad part is we have another 2 1/2 of this bloke at the helm......disappointed in todays result is an under statement

    Not much went our way.
    Next week is a new challenge against Warriors at Suncorp, I'm tipping they'll turn up to play on that stage.
    Field at 6? Surely its his turn now.
    Tough times ahead, we just need to stay within range of the 8 and make a late run once we get our regular players back.

    People love to simplify everything to one problem: "MARY".

    Its stupid.

    Honesty, 14-0 we were flying. We let them back in.

    We looked sharp in that first 35mins. Parra did look to have much in attack,

    Parra rely A LOT on momentum. We gave it to them.

    I’ll tell you what happened, Ill discipline from players who are not made accountable and keep getting picked every week! That is 100% up to the coach.
