Thread to share your thoughts on the Round 24 game between the New Zealand Warriors and Penrith Panthers after the match. Name your Man of the Match, discuss the coach, captain, starting team, bench, opposition, game tactics, substitutions, errors (or lack thereof), penalties (or lack thereof) highs, lows, refs etc.

Dont forget to rate the players...
 
My only take from this game with another 40+ points conceded.....most points conceded in the comp, officially worst defence in the comp.....

When the brains trust review the season, are they going to hold whoever's responsible for the defence accountable?

Surely that coach cant walk through the raindrops from this.
 
Apart from the efforts (or lack thereof) from our guys, the reffing tonight was appalling. The quality of the refs in this competition is laughable, even watching other teams as a neutral there's at least 2 or 3 decisions every game that you just shake your head at.

Tohu Harris is a monster. We need to clone him ASAP.

Morgan has to be dead man walking. There is absolutely no fucking way that retains the title of defensive coach moving into next season. If he is, then you might as well write off next season too.
 
Well I was expecting worse so that is one positive as I was expecting 50 to be put on us. Sure with the last try it was 4 points short but we were a bit better than I was expecting.

Frustrating when we managed to scramble a few times to stop them and then they would score with a simple play.

While I agree Morgan should go it must be like herding cats coaching all these blokes from non-league playing backgrounds.

A lot is made of how differently the top teams are officiated vs the bottom teams. A few good examples in this game.

The Warriors struggle to get a 6 again when in their 20 even when you can see on TV that some of their guys are not back on the line. They get so many the commentators are talking about how we are doing it on purpose and should be sin binned.

The Vailea near try before half time if it was the Panthers it would of likely been ruled as a knock backwards and went out by the defender.
 
Again, it has been said over and over and over again but the lack of consistency we have in team selection due to injuries and selections really doesn't help matters. Look at teams like the Cowboys, they were saying ad nauseum last week, player after player had played the whole season other than Origin. If we can get some semblance of consistency of team selection with hopefully some better players, maybe that would help.

Maybe that's me being an optimist 🤣🤣🤣

Not to mention their try just before halftime where their player was clearly held but the ref allowed him to offload - because he had his back turned to the play! It's laughable.
