Yea we are ordinary probe me wrong I say agin
On the flip side, we have started the season slowly and won 3/4 - two teams top 8. We are in a great place! Lighten up - have a beer mate - the future is looking green!

He didnt kick well but gotta give George huge wraps for his defence on Fifta. We shut him down better than any team this year so far.

Penrith next weekend.
We’ll know more about ourselves in that match.
We are contenders, that’s what makes this game so frustrating.

Happy to take that. 16 point win in a danger game. Defense was excellent in that 2md half.

So a kick to the corner that goes behind the defensive line...do the front line defenders all have to turn and go after of the ball or can they just stand their ground? Because the latter always happens and is always deemed ok, as it should be.
Mate, why are you arguing, it was a penalty, there is standing your ground with your hands on your head and then there is having no intention to do anything but bury the feet, watch the player and ensure he has no chance...

For me, the use of the bench is confusing.
Lui, Sia and Starling barely featured.
We could use Guler ...hopefully Tapine is back next week.
Sutton been a revelation this season.

Agreed, some great defense, but we need some more attacking options to ensure we capatilse on sides that make that many errors

Id personally start with both of them in the middle of the field with Papalii. The panthers starting middles are very strong. We need to match it with them and then have guys like James try and swing it in the second stint.

Thats if Tapine is fit

Mate, why are you arguing, it was a penalty, there is standing your ground with your hands on your head and then there is having no intention to do anything but bury the feet, watch the player and ensure he has no chance...
Because you should be able to simply stand your ground and watch someone running at you, so you can brace for impact. There’s no unfair disadvantage to the attacking team and you’re risking the bounce of the ball by not reacting to where it’s going to land.

Doesn’t make sense to be a penalty.

He wasn't watching the ball, he clearly was making no attempt to play the ball

That was the problem, the fact he wasn’t watching the ball.
Otherwise, it’s no penalty.

Nor were 11 other Raiders players. If someone runs into our opposite winger, is that a penalty? Why is Rapana not able to stand still but everyone else can?

Defence was good. Shut down a team who have had a red hot attack over the last few weeks.

Plenty of metres from both teams through the middle. Tough matchup.

Too many errors from Wighton. Hodgo needs to be smarter.

Even Rapana in the post game interview, said it was a penalty, and he has now lost his review privilege, is that not enough to tell you that it was a penalty, what he was doing was not simply standing his ground..

We'll match Penrith in the middle but not in a scoring race... We need to defend their block plays and disturb their rhythm down to a grind similar to tonight..
