I think Lolohea was rather poor with his options especially trying to bat the ball dead when downward pressure gives the same result going into half time. Agree also regarding Cappy, should have made more changes earlier in the game.
Best we have played for weeks.
Lots of energy better game management.
The bench killed us.
Friend hasn't played 80 all season, but we go into battle without a spine reserve? WTF?
Basics ... 4 on bench, 1 spine cover, 1 second row/center cover, 2 props.
Coaches have to wear this one.
Not sure how we were favourites for that game. Out played by the cocks. The call by the refs before the Maloney try was questionable but to have so many players missing and to travel back from Perth are just excess if it gets raised.
I've seen enough to suggest we will not be in the finals this year
Yeah i think i mentioned early in the season that we wouldnt make the finals. Im just not sure we have the talent in the squad. the veteran players have reached their potential and the younger players arent living up to potential, its a hard gig. we might stick in the top 8 at some other point this season but it wont really mean anything this team will not make the finals.
the use of only one interchange before halftime to me means coaching staff have no faith in the bench and wanted to build a big enough lead, which we didnt, bench comes on, wheels fall off as usual, bobs your uncle typical warriors loss... go fucking figure.
