Matt Russell is a great commentator. He made some very interesting observations during the game, especially about Albert Vete. Geez Vete is coming on. He had an horrendous body contact in the first half that would have justified a slow PTB, but no he was on his feet Brent Todd style to play the ball. Bunty is looking good as well. Call me biased but I think they are learning from SK.

Andy Raymond was quite good tonight on the side line with details like how the Titans had the big edge back rower moved out to mark Hoffman and the Warriors instructions to work him over. Also a comment later about both teams working over the halves and the defensive structure out wide with what numbers the players line up in. I'd rather have move details like that in the commentary than some of the jokes etc we usually get.

To be honest, meh. I didn't watch all of the game but what i did see was a god awful titans side, don't know whats happened to Ash Taylors form and Jarryd Hayne looked so lethargic - so its hard to gauge this win. Two points in the bag i guess and then another two (hopefully) against the bye......................;) Will reserve judgement when we play the dogs - think thats fair.....:cool:

Great to get the win.

Not much to complain about but would've liked another try in the 2nd half.

Was it just me after a few beers or was this textbook home ground refs?

An way win. Our positon on the table or when we do well is usually related to the amount of away wins we get otherwise we are pretty much only picking up points every 2 weeks or more. A pity it has taken 14 rounds to nab one.

A much better performance this week. A bye next week and a home game we could be looking at accumulating 6 competition points over the next few weeks.

We looked a lot better this week. The defence although improved still doesn't fill you with confidence.

Until we scored in the second half I still had memories of the Panthers game.

On differential we are where we should be on the ladder, I cannot see that changing anytime soon. At least we are clear of the spoon.

Titans were rubbish but we still had to turn up and beat them, still had the 2nd half wobbles.
Hayne and Muts have the same amount of effort in them, turning up for a paycheck.
Lisone adds something, different, needs to do that against the better sides.
Same players were good same were meh but all looked better against a bottom 4 team.
Still good to win even if it means SK might think the Process is working.
