Kotoa should have stayed on his wing and he scores too

If the ball had bounced our way we would have flogged them.

Difference between that and teams that are contenders is that contenders deal with the adverse bounce of the ball and counter it.

Maybe if we showed any semblance of line speed or effectiveness in D in first half we win but just our normal junk which will be glossed over after our little comeback

I saw good things in tonight's game.

Reckon we could challenge for the title.

Just need a bit of self-belief and some 220 grit sandpaper.

Quite literally. Two trys in a row from a fortunate bounce. They had a try awarded that was more forward than the try Katoa was called back for.
You earn a chance for a good bounce, you don’t earn getting away with a forward pass the other team got called for

65 mins of poor footy doesn't deserve a win. We deserved to lose.

**** that, would have been an epic win if Will passed it to the left draws it up, maybe Nicho kicks the goal to take us in front. As a Sharks fan how could you not want such an incredible win, biggest come back of all time.

Might have just stirred something in the players and fans for the rest of the season instead players will be deflated from getting so close AND still feeling like **** for losing anyway.

Doesn't matter who deserved what, sometimes you just gotta enjoy the moment and take a win, particularly what would have been the most famous ever. Did Manly deserve to lose because they had a bad second half?

besides all that , The 2 points would have been useful

It was good to be pumped and excited again as a Sharks fan for those 25 mins or so in the second half after 18 months feeling like going around in circles treading the same patch of hill up and down. Boys playing with free abandon in second half and due to that seemingly more confidence, desire and energy.

Either that or Fitz threatened to drop them all or wrestle them to death ha ha

So that forward pass that wasn’t a forward pass had a big bearing on the final result

no it didn't , it doesn't work like that. If that try is awarded to us there is no way possible for anyone to know how the game plays out from there.

We prob don't have that freak 3 mins of scoring trys and don't get as close on the scoreboard. Manly might have scored again, no one might have scored again we don't know.

It did look backwards out of the hands though although only saw a couple not ideal angles. Gotta love it when they say touchie was right there in line. Doesn't mean the touchie didn't misjudge it
