Those refs made two complete bullshit calls that cost us two tries.

The first one the crowd were baying for blood and even after James Gavet had cleared the ruck early the ref blows a late penalty. Josh Papalii being a huge baby didnt help but to see refs cave into that sort of pressure is weak.

The second one was a clean two man tackle strip that was called by the pocket ref but ignored by the lead ref. What so sort of crap is that! Whats the point of having two refs when that shit is happening. Just look like cheats.

And what about that dipshit in the bunker. How can Ken Maumalo who is facing backwards and taps the ball back then knock the ball on? That should have been an easy call every day of the week.

Had we played that at home we would have given them a real run and would have come away with it. Pisses fans off when the refs fuck it up like that and change the outcome of the game...

Refs fucked us hard but didn't help ourselves, what's with playing Sao for fuck all mins?! Fuck sake
Even Bennett has trouble with the rotation, I will give SK a break on that, and after all he has to play with a 50 minute hooker in Luke.

Overall that was a much better performance and I can see where Sk is taking them. The trouble he has too many players who are not up to that level and I don't now if he can get them there.

First half was excellent...should have gone into halftime leading by 14 points....

Second half was absolute rubbish. We panicked and self destructed.

Maumalo needs a bullet. Gubb is a waste of a couple of interchanges!!
Foran went MIA in the second half so Johnson tried to pick up the slack. No help from the forwards at all!!
I think Lillyman must lad his stats by making metres only from kick returns. He is about as effective as Jim Doyle running at the line with his sideways shoulder and flop to the ground!!!

Would have been better for us if Thompson failed his HIA test coz he was shit. Missed tackles, stupid penalties.

Canberra aside from having the refs on their side in that second half were offloading for fun..and their BIG forwards were making metres for fun after contact. In fact Shannon Boyd got bored of walking up field with Lison hanging on that he stopped and played the ball!!

I normally don't blame the refs, but this time F the refs!
We had no chance to get any go forward.
Yes we made a couple of dumb mistakes to start out the second half but received some very messed up calls.
The Raiders ain't no joke and muscled up in the first half to hold us out. They're the real deal.
But those rubbish second half calls killed us.
Best first half for years though and that's a good sign.

I have to agree Welly. That was an absolute anti Warrior performance that I haven't seen since the old days. Absolutely disgusting, the last one I can remember was in Perth way back last century that even Warren Ryan had to groan about.

how do you go from 80% completions in the last two games, huge possession and completions in the first half to that rubbish? Off loading under pressure in the first set straight after the break. Shows that these fuckwits just don't get it. The Raiders were there for the taking and the players fucked it. Not the coach, not the refs, not the opposition.

Incredibly proud of that first half. Bitterly disappointed with the second half.

Proud of that effort.

We turned it into a tackling test in the second half.

Gave Canberra all the ball and the Refs did the rest.

Canberra are shit.

They should have Romped it with their vaunted best attack in the comp with all the ball we gave them.

Well done boys, hold the pill you beat anyone.

Defence is outstanding.

I hate Canberra, they and their crowd spent the whole game pleading for penalties. Fkn hate their puke lime green jerseys too. And their coach is a toad!

Horrible defending on our line. The first two tries especially were preventable.

Maumalo just needs to go. He needs to do it for himself more than anything.

Refs were infulenced by the home crowd.. Warriors didn't take their chances.. went away from their game plan second half.

Can we keep the forwards aren't big or tough enough and blaming individuals for another week? Old Warriors would have given up 30-40 points.

Plenty of positives from that first half and if a few calls went the other way it could have been a different result.

Matulino back next week?
No more gub?
Roache was poor.
Luke has to play 80.
No luck from refs. Should have been a closer game ,
A grade effort. Just mistakes...

Refs had some unbelievable calls but at the end of the day those errors in the second half early cost us the game it was an arm wrestle the errors cost us the game.

Thought they played real well tonight defended well enough just got beaten by an better team.
I agree, Kata, Maumalo and Fusitua with drops and misses. In the face of adversity the Warriors buckled

Raiders had the players on the edges to outclass us when we got tired. We had to defend repeat sets in the 2nd half but it didnt happen
