    Really? Excuses are not needed, they have been the better team. End of story.

    They dived at least 4 times in that match. Weak

    Methinks Mr Reynolds should be playing soccer for the Italians...

    Sorry but whinging about that after a loss is just the easy way out. Man up and take the loss on the chin, they were the better team tonight.

    Was making the same comments when we were 10-6 up ... Thankfully the refs didn't take the bait for a couple of them

    Reynolds has been doing it all year

    I think you will find there is zero mention of the game play and who played better etc

    Say it now, or say it Wednesday or after the year, it is still the same thing, they are taking dives

    How's the fact they dove an excuse?

    The Dogs played better and won. They also dove. Reynolds is a cat, glad Watmough told him so.

    Seems like some clubs are instructed to lay down. The Dogs put on a masterclass of diving tonight. C. Ronaldo take note!

    I agree Bob. We played poorly and only lost by a converted try.

    It's that tough play that wins premierships barrack. Soft sides don't like it. Just ask the Broncos and Cowboys from years gone past.

    There's a saying from an excellent movie, From Dusk Till Dawn. It goes something along the lines of "Are you such a loser, that you don't know when you've won?". Why don't you just rack off and enjoy the win with your Kennel mates. I know when we've won, I've got no interest at all in other fans' sites.

    Now that Hasler is doing a Bennett and is into the 'wandering minstrel' phase of his coaching career, I wonder which club, he and his troupe of fawning acolytes, will sprinkle with fairy dust next?

    Will it be the:

    Illawarra Credit Union?

    or the

    Marriage made in Heaven?

    Biggest diving performance I've seen by an NRL team yet. But it goes with their culture, lie cheat steal anything to win it.

    The title of this thread reminds me of a David Bowie song:

    'They call them the diving dogs!'

    I agree there were few diving incidents in the game, but at the end of the day we werent good enough in taking the chances given to us esp in the 1st half, and the dogs defended well all game..no excuses we'll be back next week but mite be a big mountain to climb without matai n lyon but confident we can win...

    You could always offer King a contract at Canterbury. I'm sure you hated Hasler only 12 months ago too.;)
