Having thought the game through I feel the boys just didn't run hard enough today.

I think it was because prior to the bye we had the real tough game with the Rorters and the defencive slog against the Warriors. Coming into this game I think all of the boys were hoping to get the points without having to put the body through the same grind as the two weeks prior.

I hope to God that they lean from this and turn up ready to run and hit hard next week against the Eels.

We have a four/flex ticket and we usually like Sunday games because we get so few, but I wanted to skip this one, just had a feeling it would go this way. Wanted to leave at half time but waited it out. Should have skipped it.

Also wanted to add to the chorus calling for Macca to go, he was deadset awful, Turpin was the only guy on the field trying his guts out and Macca did everything he could to get in his way. Boyd should be forced to retire immeadiately, and we missed Oates so much it wasn't funny. Most of the team played for shit though, no energy and no direction at all.
I too was there with my family including my 5yr old grandson. I went to see the Broncos team that played the Roosters and Warriors and all I got was a side wearing their jerseys.

Played today in a badly beaten Tigers side, their only try was from his pass though.

I am watching it now.
Is there any chance of us trying to sign him or another fullback option?

Until we get a halfback who will let him play his natural game, i dont think he will ever be a real superstar.
Lucky we have Dearden then. Hopefully he gets back as soon as possible.

Our Captain ladies and gents.

Anybody who thinks Darius hasn't just given up in this play is deadset kidding themselves.

Boyd reminds me of the batsman that starts to lose his balance, you know it's over for him when he can't keep on his feet anymore.

Ponting never lost his balance his whole career, but this was his second last Test.

That made me sad rewatching that 1910. Punter was the best batsmen to ever play the game. He deserved to go out as the highest run scorer of all time.

Yes.. He is INCREDIBLY SHIT in origin. As I said, total pea heart who has had 5 chances in origin and not proved it in ONE ORIGIN GAME YET..but hey, let's give him another chance aye, 5 isn't enough?
Judgemental much! Perhaps like most frontrowers he becomes better as he matures. You know that can happen, right? He has been very good this year and he obviously went well today against an origin forward and a potential origin forward. In a beaten team he's been playing quite well. I wouldn't be so quick to write him off but hey, I'm old and know nothing.

Wallace has hit 200 metres at least 3 matches in a row. That's definitely pretty impressive. That's probably more in 1 round than all his 5 Origins combined.

Just for comparison this year with Klemmer. Klemmer has 10 tackle busts in 11 games, Wallace has 23 in 10 games. He's not terrible especially when you consider their respective teams and how they're going. I'm not making a case that he's better than Klemmer, he isn't. Just that he's better than you give him credit for. He may have had some poor origin games but I wouldn't mark his papers 'never to be picked'.

Ha ha, not quite but yes, a couple of his origin matches were poor. I just have trouble with neverwasbeens labelling fearless frontrowers 'shit'.

If anyone wants a comparison of how lopsided the reffing was they need only look at Hipgrave's hit on Deardon and TPJ's hit on their kicker.

For mine, i think Deardon's hit was the more brutal of the two yet it was only the TPJ tackle that was penalised.

I thought the refereeing in the Cows / Manly game was atrocious but yesterday I feel sure both refs were having a private competition of who could get the most boos. Some of the decisions and following replays on the big screen had those around me scratching their heads to say the least. When this is added to your teams lack of attitude and not wanting to be there particularly on a great Brisbane Sunday afternoon it makes me wonder why I bothered. After seeing all the trouble the club went to with players masks for the kids and players posters in the surrounding streets, fireworks etc, how dare they not turn up for the fans at home. Quite clearly one of the most inane, boring and disappointing games I’ve witnessed. I hope Seibold and his assistants take them on a route march this morning into the desert and only bring back those capable of and more importantly ‘wanting’ to be a Bronco.
Sorry for the rant but pissed off big.

It’s been kinda fun reading all of these crazy conspiracies. Gotta admit, passion has overtaken logic in most cases.

Like a few others have said, Boyd is just on the wrong side of his career and spiralling more quickly than most would have predicted.

It wasn’t a lack of anything but ability and physicality that has embarrassed him repeatedly in defence. His centre of gravity seems so heavy that he’s locked to the ground. His spatial awareness is clouded possibly due to indecision and also a lack of confidence and he can’t shift his weight as quickly as his mind would like.

It is becoming embarrassing for him, and us as fans. I hope he can make the decision quickly or accept the tap on the shoulder with grace.

Neverwasbeens? Are you drunk again?
Again with the little personal shot. You can't criticise a player now? I'll remember that next time. He was shit in every origin game he played bar maybe 10 minutes in his final one after many people called him to be dropped. Does shit mean compared to me? Of course not you tosser. It means compared to the other nrl and origin level players who could be picked in front of him. He may come good, but he's had 5 bloody chances. It's the equivalent of nsw picking Pearce, great nrl player but when he faces people who are of the same level he doesn't show up.
Honestly, are you related to him? He was shit for 4/5 origins. How many chances should a guy get? 10,15,20 maybe? What example is he setting.
Neverwasbeens haha put the drink down Mike. Its an Internet forum....

Just watched the post match presser, sounds as tho seibs knows that Macca is mud. He was saying jake will be in the 17 next week. When asked about macca he said we will have to look at what the team needs (or words to that effect.)
It was evident that he is well aware that turps needs to be our 9.
As for boyd, I don’t think he should be there, but I’m not sure we really have any other options. I have no faith whatsoever in isaako, other then that, I’m not sure who we could put back there. It’s worrying.
Probably shows that we really should be going after one of the many fullbacks the storm seem to have..
I'm telling you. If we miss out on signing Papenhuyzen we've really missed the absolute best possibility and timing to pickup a player of his talent.

I think the Boyd non tackle looks poor but that video shows that even an x-men leap wouldn't have reached Roberts. Sure it's the lack of an attempt but **** me, you guys are hard markers. No way in hell any fullback could cover the distance. The truly appalling effort was from the two guys who let Roberts through.

I'm going to be the only one who will say that wasn't on Boyd. I do agree he should have tried to dive across and as the play moved across the field Boyd was correctly keeping pace with Roberts. After breaking through the pisspoor tackles he was a lot further away from Boyd than some supermen on here could cover.
Mate, the **** didn't even try. He didn't try. He has a glaring amount of form in this department.
