There's absolutely no fortitude with this team. We've lost countless games in the last 5 minutes, and despite that still had no plan for a field goal in the last 10 minutes.

Stop Being Shit
Such contrasting halves. Frustrating watch again.
Chad broke, then the team lost it's way.
Think Addin Fonua-Blake and Lodge were off too long.
Was a mistake to leave Jazz out.

Kodi is a real liability.

How do we not get any 6agains? Canberra really that disciplined?

Sean O'Sullivan f**ked us! 2 mistakes on both sides of the ball with 5 minutes to go..:facepalm:

The Warriors seriously need to rid the team of players like Egan and Townsend. Players who can't finish a match are dead weight, spine players who go off are a noose around the teams neck!

We seriously need to get a Brandon Smith calibre hooker..

Disappointing end. Spine that was left had little composure or experience. Well except kodi who has experience but lacks everything else required.

How do I rate Kodi less than Evan's when he got double sinbinned.
I rate Kodi but that was fucking utter garbage the shit he served up tonight in attack and defence.

Pretty much sums up our season. Things look promising but ends with late dissapointment.

Too many close loses and a lot lost late.

16-0. Then we don't score again letting in 28 unanswered points. The last one was salt being rubbed into the wound.

so egan looked pretty damn good running from dummy half. where has that been all year

we really needed jazz in that game. his energy and line speed was absolutely needed in that second half.

i dont know what you guys see in siro. 11 missed tackles. only 6 hit ups. needed alot more from him

Well out of our misery for the season, injuries screwed us for the year.
Be interesting who lines up next week nothing to play for.

I hate the raiders so much.

But I thought we played really well until Chad left the field. Then nikorima dropped his bundle defensively and you could tell our troops are busted. The squad looks great when fit and really excited for next year. TBH Canberra got lucky like really lucky and played really dirty too.

With Shaun Johnson coming in controlling that kicking our spine, pack and to a lesser extent our backs look pretty solid. I'm very positive , our footy is enterprising and when gotten right looks sexy to watch. We need to keep this core group of players together imo. Brownies doing a good job.

One of those frustrating, “refs are against us” kind of games.

Thought they were giving us the rub in the 1st half, but evened the ledger and then some against us in the 2nd half.

Crucial calls and penalties against us - including giving the Raiders a penalty goal attempt and then field position for Rapanas try,

Didn’t have the guts to call the mid air tackle on Walsh which lead to their last try, though.

Speaking about last tries - thats our last try at making the 8 this season flushed down the toilet, thank fuck tbh.

Time to put 2021 to bed - and look towards 2022.
