I know it's only Nines but that is fair dinkem the worst referee clanger I have ever seen in my life. The ball was clean out by a good 5 inches.
I dont think its the performances that are bothering some people, its the effort on some of the plays.I said this yesterday but I'll say it again: Calm down. It's the Nines. It is far more likely than not that the players had instructions not to take it too seriously, glorified trial match and all that. This tournament likely won't even exist next year so why does it matter now?
Melbourne didn't win a single game, should they be hitting the panic button?
I'm starting to think we didn't really take it all that seriously despite sending over a decent squad.I dont think its the performances that are bothering some people, its the effort on some of the plays.
Maybe as well we have overhyped the attacking prowess of some of these younger backs.I'm starting to think we didn't really take it all that seriously despite sending over a decent squad.
Haas was running sideways in the first game and then stock standard hitups the next game
Fifi averaged about 1 run per half... if we were taking it seriously he should've been getting the ball a whole lot more
And just in general we seemed to be playing against what a normal nines game would have... barely any offloads, barely any expansive footy, against the cows we were giving away penalties inside the 10m (typical of an NRL game, but no way you give away extra sets in the nines). We didn't really fire a shot, but did we actually want to pull the trigger??
We did send a decent squad, but our squad isn't really that deep to begin with. We didn't go all out like the warriors and send over a 20's squad, but we did also include Parker.
Agreed... I was going to suggest that we as fans think that player x, y & z will be a phenom and dominate the league, but I'm sure fans of knights, sharks, tigers, etc. are all thinking the same.Maybe as well we have overhyped the attacking prowess of some of these younger backs.
Titans superb tbh
