We are the best losers

Post by papabear » May 20, 2018, 4:04 pm

Every week, we find new and inventive ways to lose a football match.

Someone who has more knowledge of the rules though can tell me, why cotric was allowed to be run off the ball but rapana gets binned for the less.

When Nightingale does it it's gamesmanship. When Rapana does it it's ill discipline.

Same argument when Croker was held down after the break that lead to the Rapana try. Generally that would be a sin bin.

If games went 20mins we'd be back to back to back premiers.

Unfortunately for us...no dice.

In 5 of our 7 losses this year we have lead after 60 mins.... Our game management from our halves is pathetic and i lay the blame squarely on them

Cowboys did a pretty good job last rd of doing a Raiders.

We just need them to do that again approx 20 times over the next 3 seasons to be in our league though

It’s not just them.

A lot of it has to do with our fitness, bench use and ability to go up a gear.

All to often you see it in the last 10-20 minutes when the opposition go up in intensity and apply pressure we have nothing to respond with.

It really deflates me when we lose.

I could really do with a win on Friday night.

I absolutely hate losing.

A win would be great, a consistent 80 minute performance even better...wishful thinking
