    We got beat because they played better and we played like we expected to win, very few players played to expectation, might have been better without SOO players, Lino plays well without Pearce, it was like let’s sit back and let the SOO players win it for us but they were flat, hindsight says we stuffed up selection wise

    Brown just like all of us had every right to think we would score.

    Brown made a team that should be blowing that Dogs side off the park, the 17 that walked out didnt buy into the required effort to win the game.
    Feel for Browny tbh, his players didnt try tonight and it wasnt because of him....

    Was disappointed in all SOO players and the others seem to sit back thinking our boys will win it for us very disjointed play that was like it will happen but it didn’t. We got beat by a performing side

    We played OK.
    Just one of those games where the better side got beat.
    It happens.

    The better side won IMO. We are better on paper but need to show it on the field.

    I'd like to be a fly on the wall in the sheds at half time in our games. We come out for the second half most weeks like we've forgot there's a game on.

    Or best side should start the second half even if that means starting with the others having to start the game, Prop rotation etc geared towards having next to best on paddock. Seems like start of second halve is critical so let’s be strong

    Utterly disgusting. The better side won and deserved to win by more.

    Absolutely filthy still on waking up that was a bobble for that second try when Gavet was in the bin, the video ref was inclusive and even said he was going with the original decision which was the NO TRY for the ref.

    Yes we were crap but we have been absolutely DUDDED.

    2 weeks in a row.

    3 weeks if you count that laughable 14-7 penalty count against the donkeys. Clearly there is a vendatta against us.

    And correct me if I'm wrong but that corrupt f**k Klein has been involved the past 3 weeks.

    Looks like a fair side, Hunt seems better at centre than wing, when is Fitz back?
    It is essential that we have a balance of experience and enthusiasm on the field at all times.
    I get that we have been successful with the up tempo pace but unforced errors and lack of support play is killing us.
    Attitude needs addressing, back each other up not watch and wait for someone else to do the magic.
    Cheap penalties are in our control- dud calls and momentum changing refs calls aren’t.
    We now have the team to go further than recent years, now SOO is over and injuries have played their part, Brownie needs to get the little things right, settle on a solid squad and tweak positional play and combinations

    We looked a bit tired I thought and I have to say a 40 min warm up is too much IMO.

    I didn't see the game but he played 72 minutes, ran 143 metres with 65 post contract and made 32 tackles - so a good hit out by him.

    A must next week. Possibly start him. Handy replacement for fitz. Guerra, Barnett and Ponga coming back will be massive next week.

    We'd have to be leading the sin bin count as well - definitely for a home side.
