    THE Sea Eagles’ shock loss to the Wests Tigers last Friday did not sit well with star centre Steve Matai.

    Good to read. Defense was poor in the second half last week and it's good to read that the players felt it too. No excuses.

    As long as he kills them in a legal hit I'd be happy with it.

    This is a worry...we need to be playing smarter, not tougher.

    No point trying to bash the opposition into submission if it takes all the juice out of the tank and leaves us flat at the back end of games.

    Don't get me wrong, physical dominance is necessary, but we have to score points off the back of it.

    Our execution in attack needs to improve, not our ability to smash the opposition. We already do that better than most.

      Wrong.

      We definately need to play tougher. We have not been smashing the opposition lately and that is why our attack is suffering.

        Maybe 10 years ago. Nowadays to win in NRL it has to be at least 115% effort.
