    Do we still think the loss to Canberra was a travesty, given the teams they have knocked off this year and how they are travelling??

    Yes. Should never have lost to them, at Brookvale especially. Look at who else they have beaten...

    Penrith
    Warriors
    Parra
    Cowboys
    Souths
    Bulldogs

    So they have beaten the four bottom teams, the Bulldogs missing their forwards and the Cowboys in the middle of their losing streak, three days after origin and coming off a bye.

    We didn't play that well in that game and have lifted ever since. I think we expected to win without building the platform. They are capable of playing well but are inconsistent. Remember the 70 or so points that Newcastle put on them a week later!

    I expected to win that game but it was our first game and Canberra ambushed us. No point dwelling on it.

    Since that game we have been in the hunt at the end of all games we have lost, well apart from Brisbane. Good to see we have shown improvement.

    I reckon that it showed to Manly that we have to compete in every single game - a lesson that we learnt very early, and that we have taken into every game since. I don't think we have taken any teams lightly since.

    Obviously the two points would have been nice, because we'd be one step out of the sh*tfight for top 8 spots that we are currently right in the middle of.

    I guess it was one of those things that happen. It was an ordinary loss but so far it's the only one so I guess I can handle that. Well done Dessie for making the team highly competitive :)
