    Commentators did say the dogs have beaten us the last 4 times at home but they call the wrong player half the time too so who knows

    We have lacked any sort of game plan/manager. Pearce needed help and got nothing. We need a 6 who's going to help. Origin players shouldn't have backed up. The team last week would have beat the dogs tonight.

    I think we just have to put this down to a very soft and dumb dumb dumb performance. I struggle to see how we compete versus the Roosters after that. Good teams are consistent. We are crap for weeks, great for weeks, crap for weeks.......hopefully we then hit great again to scrape into the finals

    We don’t deserve to make the top 8 after that. That is more embarrassing than the 62-0 loss to the Sharks in 2016.

    Hang your heads in shame.

    Worse thing about winning is that losing hurts again.

    Dogs were bad,
    Refs were bad,
    Knights were worse,
    Gavet was horrible.

    That last play their at the death sums up our game. Dumb.

    We have 30 seconds left and we run two hit ups and then send moga in to the line out wide with nothing on.

    Dogs were better than us from the 1st to the 80th. Question a while back was are we contenders?

    Contenders dont lose games like this at home.

    Dont even start me.... since rd5 ive been saying Gavet will cost us later in the year.... and imo his poor attitude and dumb thinking has cost us 2 games now.
    Needs to be dropped to cup and slapped around by the coaching staff until he gets it.... u aint tough being the team dog.

    Put that loss down to origin, a few injuries and Gavet being a flog

    I can see us slipping out of the 8 and missing the finals.

    Sure we didn't try anything in attack, but are we really calling us bad? Defensively we were great, they scored off a ricochet & Gavet being lazy. They got 2 points of Gavet being dumb. I don't think I've ever seen a sin bin for a late tackle. That last try was clearly dropped, vid ref called not enough evidence to overturn, but then overturns it anyway.

    I couldnt care less about origin, apart from the fact it royally screws up the knights season when they are in form, but even with that in mind they simply didnt care tonight, after that first try they just assumed it would be a walk in the park and it wasnt until it was 20-8 that they bothered to see things differently
