Ok so Roosters field goal attempt. Hits post back to Manly aren't all the Roosters players that were in front of Cleary offside? Or is it deemed a free for all after it hits the post.

Our attack is looking terrible but we have played two of the better sides in the comp back to back. We won that even with 300 fewer running metres and a laughably lopsided penalty count.

Great defense though!

Dogged win, which is the only way you can get a win against the roosters. Defence is A1

Plenty to work on and if we keep making it that hard for ourselves we won’t always be able to get if Jail like that

I still have no idea what is happening with our kicking game

No one hates cherry, but surely even his biggest loyalists can see how he is playing and how off he seems ?

Attack is something which improves as the season progresses. Trent Robinson has won the last two by ensuring the defence was finals standard from the get go.

Thought we were well and truly gone the way we started that second half, but some incredible defence by Tommy kept us in it against all statistical odds and somehow we worked our way back into it. Even better effort when you consider we lost Keppie early and Scorpio later on. Really happy for the win.

I agree.. I know we have had a hard draw, and im stoked with how we've been ultra competitive against the top 2 sides... I just worry about where our points will come from over the season... next week will be a good indicator... warriors arnt much chop, we should atleast put 4-5 tries on them
