We were a completely different team in the first and second halves. First half we looked hungry and up for it, but after they scored those two tinny tries we went in to our shells and didn't fire another shot.

Nikorima once again went MIA. Does he have a clause in his contract stating a max number of involvements per week, otherwise we need to pay him overtime?

In terms of positives I thought the defence was by and large fine. A few too many times we didn't wrap the arms and some woeful individual tackling efforts but still probably passable.

Game of two halves that one!

B+ for the first half. C- for the second!

Thought the Raiders looked tough but really disorganised. Williams coming off had a big impact for them. The commentators kept saying they would challenge anyone of the top 3 teams?! If they play that kind of football Papali ain’t gonna save em.

Good attitude from our guys today. Really didn’t drop our lips until after Roger Tuivasa-Sheck went off.

Good to see Ale get some minutes. Keen to see how Roger Tuivasa-Sheck our is covered next week? Surely won’t be Hiku will it? Guessing we haven’t got any youngsters in the wider squad?

Why so many C's?

We playing the only team in the comp that can match the top 2 with 4 months away from home playing under Aus media scrutiny for the first time and the Raiders score 3 tinny tries on any other day 2 of them were tries to us instead and the Raiders the best last 20min team in the comp by FAR and we only played worthy of a C? Any other year and we get caned 40-0 by Canberra and the fans are happy with that. Gone from extreme low expectations to delierium us fans.....

I get called out for sounding negative of the team when Im just being analytically critical. imo anything less than a B is awfully harsh. But each to their own.

Almost definitely be Turner, which I guess is a silver lining - will be good to see him again.

Would love to see Herbert back in so that AK could play 6 and Niko could play left right out, but don't think that's likely.

My only thoughts from the game. Can we start a match day thread/poll for every game going forward titled: What is Jazz going to do today?" with the following options

A) Be sent to the sin bin
B) Give away a needless penalty, resulting in other team scoring from the resulting set
C) Knock the ball on when getting up and trying to niggle the tackler instead of just playing the ball
D) look to offload the ball with out looking to see who he is offloading too. Resulting in the other team scoring from the turnover
E)none of the above

He does a lot of good things, but the club will never win a premiership with him in the first 17.
