    At least we will not have to put with any more BS about making the 8 this year.

    Can we not come out again at half time? Just have Brown walk out and wave a white flag.

    They had a chance to play finals football and haven't tried. If finals footy don't motivate them they should give it away.

    This game is really good for the Tigers For and Against, it’s gone from -65 to -30 in 40 minutes.

    Pretty hard to be prepared mentally as a team with all the distractions but some one in the coaching panel needs to show some enthusiasm - when the camera pans the box they all look disinterested

    I hope the tigers don't take their foot off the gas, they might get to 100 in the 2nd half

    I can't recall ever turning the footy off in disgust before, but my time is worth so much more than this, family time with the kids > inept/lackluster/ embarrassing performance by our team. I'd love nothing more than to wake up tomorrow and find we somehow won, but I'm thinking it's more likely I'll wake up to 58-4.

    Exactly. He’d rather crack it to prove a point than plays finals. Weak as water. How is that helping the team to focus, have belief, etc. when the coach would rather prove he is to good to be treated a certain way than **** it up for 4 weeks to keep the team on track. Most selfish thing in league for years.

    Don’t worry guys, we’ll still make the 8 easily. Don’t panic. Don’t need to worry about 2020 yet!

    I want to put all the blame on Sione, but Lino is just a speedbump, and the rest of the team doesn't shift at all. Even if they went past Lino, there's 4 on 2 every time with about 10 metres of room to spare.

    We can give Randall, Toa and Hoy a run next week.
    No reason not to.

    Brown said in the pre match that his wife could coach Ponga, maybe get her in to do his job for the last couple of games

    Sione, Lino, and Barnett if there's a worse defensive edge in the NRL I don't know what it is.

    Will the Tigers score more than England?
