Playing Souths is a positive, but we don't win unless we have a gear to go up.

We contained their left edge well last time, but arguably only win because Latrell had an off night with his field goal kicking. Can't see that happening again.

I think we do, we have to. Cowboys played like it was a finals game, were more up tempo than us most of the game. We did it spasmodically. When we needed to put the game to sleep late we tried to speed things up, with quick play the balls and Will Kennedy rushing up to take 20m tap.

Rubbish.

Dumb errors all over the place. We should of had that game wrapped up after 80 minutes. First two sets in extra time summed it up nicely. Brain dead errors.

We were crap.
Did you watch today's game? Plenty of brain dead errors in it.

If Burgess and Milne both don't get any time that will show you how much of a farce the match review committee and the NRL are. Both high, both careless and reckless, and in Burgess case on Tedesco it was a Terry Lamb on Ellery Hanley..

Watch them slap Burgess wrist but show they mean business on Milne

Latrell also had to move to centre to cover an injury. We definitely had luck on our side that game.

Never been so deflated to watch a sharks semi final. Can’t see how they will bounce back from last night that’s a season killing loss tbh. Will either fire up and come out red hot or we will just be hot garbage - I’m thinking the latter… even if we pull off a miracle and win this game the panthers will destroy us the following week anyway.
**** me...have some faith. We've beaten souths and were very competitive against panthers this year. We're in this up to our eyeballs.

I’m sure there will be plenty of tickets for all members, and I can’t make it, so happy to pass on my AAN if anyone wants it. But might be better off waiting for the drip feed of better tickets if it’s anything like last week…..

Sounds like we came through the game with a clean bill of health and rap sheet?
And is Katoa due back?

Learned today the old "take their best player out" is back and easier than ever. You used to need a hitman to cop the lengthy suspension for the brutal act of foul play that'd be enough to injure a bloke so bad he couldn't play on. Now you just gotta risk 10 in the bin & a fine to make the guy wobble a bit & someone else will rule him out.

If you can manage it with ball in hand you risk nothing KO'ing a defender.

Royce/BHU/Toby need to be sent bumpers up at Walker & shoulder first if he's isolated. If Burgess plays our blokes should wear helmets.
