    They can chuckle for a week or two but really, is that the best they have? Home town game, try from a knock-on, try from a forward pass and try from an intercept? Our troops were down, our cohesion was a little down in attack, they will be nervous if they have to meet us again.

    Mate they put us off our game and beat us well, credit where credits due, if we don't get some variation in our attack we won't beat them, they are weak through the ruck but you won't beat them by trying to go round them.

    We got beat in all facets of the game in the end. Hopefully we'll be better for it at the business end.

    Totally agree Jesus their defence was outstanding our attack was ordinary and too sideways. We should have played them up the middle and more direct.

    Dragons were great. Do not forget they had Hornby and Scott missing.

    Credit where credit is is due , they played great tonight but we had also-No woffie for most of the game aswell as joe and we had Kite Rodney Trex hoppa not playing so we were also underdone by injuries.

    Anyway, the season isn't over tonight so it 's too bad. Either Storm vs Dragons or Dragons vs Brisbane for Grand final with us loosing in the 3rd week of the finals is my prediction for the finals. Still long way to go but.

    They were missing their main half, simply beat us on defence.

    Final Score looks worse than it ended up.

    End of the day they are really only 2 trys better than us.

    Plenty to work on.

    Jesus, “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven (Luke 18:25)”

    So whatever happens this year, next year Bennett is screwed.

    They were missing Hornby, Scott & Cooper so they were as depleted as we were, perhaps more. They handed us our ar$e on a platter. We have a hell of a lot of work to do between now and semi final time if we are to make an impact.

    We will take a lot from the game and we will be better for it.

    We looked tired and our 5th tackle options were atrotious. Sure it's good to get repeat sets but what's the point if you can't convert it to points. What's the deal with repeatedly going to the RH short side too? WTF can't we ever but a bomb up at the sticks? We seem to score alot off kicks so why weren't we doing that lastnight when we couldn't crack their defence?

    They aren't scared while Bennet is there as they know they will get every 50 /50 call. All Wayne Bennett teams do. They will be scared next year, especially when they play Newcastle.

    I agree Fonz, we looked tired. Maybe last weeks winning effort took a lot out of the guys. That game was very physical against the Slime. And realistically you can't win every game. We'll beat them next time.
