DCE all class in foxsports interview he did not miss the mark at all in his assessment.

attitude was not there last night he said.

you could tell that was not up to his standards as a team.

if we see no reponse on Friday from our team then something is seriously wrong.

Uhm we just got touched up by 30 points and people are claiming he had a good game because he made a couple of try saving tackles and tried hard ?? It's never his fault, I get that, it wasn't his fault tonight either. But he was just as ineffective as everyone else out there tonight and his kicking game was rocks and diamonds. Sure he tried hard, they all did, but he gets paid to drive this side around the park and compete. Didn't earn his paycheque tonight because we got handed a football lesson.
You have to be the biggest a hole supporter I have come across. He was outstanding tonight and tried everything to lift the team around him, 3 try saving tackles, was everywhere in defence, set up both tries, kicked a 40-20. Give yourself an uppercut .

He is an excellent leader and that came across in his interview. After such a disappointing loss that is what I wanted to see. He was filthy.

Cleary was outstanding tonight but in a badly losing team Daly stood out, as he should.

It's like you expect DCE to be able to win games single handed because he gets paid more... have a look at tonight's game - it was an arm wrestle until 15-20min in when pennies started to win the field position and THEN Cleary stepped up with some great passing to take advantage of their opportunities...
Dce put Jake in and Jorge in with the few opportunities we had but we were on the back foot for large portions of the game and he is an NRL player not Harry Potter...
In all honesty, when you criticize DCE for a game like tonight it just detracts from the validity of your contributions when he DOES have a bad game because you come across as determined to blame everything on Cherry regardless of what he does... it is possible to play well in a losing team and DCE showed tonight what that looks like...

Is it possible that our forwards played like pussies because they're over seeing the pigs breakfast our $1mil half and 2nd grade backs make of the attack.

All things are possible ... but what comes first ... the forwards or the backs ... which one relies on a good performance of the other the most ?

I can't help thinking about a comment Sirro made a couple weeks ago along the lines of "it would be nice to get a few repeat sets"). Cust played well the week before and we actually got a couple of repeat sets and the result was a good win against the Cows. I wouldn't be surprised if the pack is frustrated by the pedestrian backs. I would be.

Best game and most aggressive game I have seen from Paseka . I hope he can continue to play like that

i personally think he getting better each weak, finally realizing he weighs 120 kilos!

His defensive technique is perfect, just want him to continue to be aggressive with his runs, he has the physique for it

Siro has been through a lot but he is a fighter and he will survive and revive his career once again .
The moral of the story .....
Life is full of setbacks
and only the ones that dont lay down and die
but get up again and try
Get to live and fulfill their dreams

DCE did pretty well in a badly beaten team and was hamstrung by the amazing decision to not play Cust. DCE is right, they did not show up!

I've been critical of DCE plenty at times over the last year or two because of what I perceive to be a lack of willingness to get down and dirty and really compete on all the little plays and drive his team over the line. wanting to play too pretty, throwing a hospital or forced pass instead of digging into the line himself and taking the tackle when the pass isn't on, or just diving on a loose ball.

That said I was at the game on Saturday and thought DCE was outstanding in those areas. his 1% efforts were as good as I have seen from him. He tried everything.

We were just beaten in all ways on Saturday, Penrith Forwards got on top, they got all the ball and all the set restarts and posession , they had most of the luck, Cleary played the best game he's played in years, our defensive issues out wide were exposed and we got flogged. OK it happens.

I think we'll bounce back this week if do the fundamentals right. Last week was a bit freaky to me.

Jake, AFB and Siro play like pussies?
Change my mind .... post a couple of the last big hits or bitch slappings they have handed out ...

Opposition teams are lining up to run at us ... even midget halves are pushing forwards out the way saying let me put a dent in these wee Jessies ..

PSS .. I will concede Siro has occasionally had periods of a minute or so when he has had a dig ..
