There's a little bit of negativity coming out of this loss but personally I don't think there aren't too many concerns. Out 5th tackle options were disappointing and probably cost us a lot but given we had 6 players backing up from origin as well at two "strike" players injured I thought it was an ok performance. The roosters are a real force this year so the two point loss in these circumstances is nothing to sneeze at.

Definitely would like to see a little more second phase play especially it seems we've got some guys with real offloading ability. In regards to the issue of Ben hunts form I think the only situation you'll see him replaced is if he has an absolute shocker or a game (I'm talking like a Justin hodges state of origin bad performance).

Have heard this before all too many times though. When will we get it right? the roosters were missing Pearce and had sweet FA in attack. They won because we derped it up and that is frustrating as hell

Thought it was a high quality game for alot of blokes out and reasonably terrible conditions. Didn't think we played bad at all. Would have beat alot of other sides. Roosters aren't duds

I'd be more worried if this loss was post origin leading into the business end of the season. Definitely agree it's frustrating though for sure!

McGuire being tackled on the 4th is becoming very predictable and boring, I lost count in the end.
Surely we could develop some better 4th tackle options.

Am I reading this correct? That everyone is getting excited by Marshall, even though he was responsible for 12 of the 18 points that the Roosters scored?

He was responsible for the Michael Gordon try, but what role did he have in the two Cordner tries?

A couple of charges coming out of this game.

Tupou charged for his head high on Matt Gillett, no penalty.

Luke Keary charged for a trip on Alex Glenn when Ben Hunt put in his cross-field kick, no penalty, Roosters score that set and effectively win the game.

This is the very reason i have only watched a handful of games this year , it isn't just im our games either. I know they can't get every little thing correct , but so many are at crucial moments. Something needs to be fixed, they seem to get worse as the years go by.

It's a pretty simple fix. Allow the video ref to make rulings in general play.

There is too much focus on speeding the game up rather than trying to reduce the amount of bad calls in each game. I'm convinced some of the refs can't even keep up.

You'll never eliminate all bad calls, but we can put systems in place that would significantly reduce them.

Our attack is getting predictable again; not enough second phase just simple hitups which our opposition eat up easily. We only do offloads when we get desperate. Boyd came out recently and said he wanted to throw the ball around cause it was the Broncos style; well it hasnt happened. I do remember one game we were offloading at will and we looked great. Wish we could go back to that.
I like the idea of Blair and McGuire changing positions. That way we get some good offloading ability in the middle like what CP13 did. McGuire is a hog and doesnt look to offload.
Need TPJ to get more gametime, easily our most dangerous player off the bench and in the future with his strong runs and offload ability.

none is the answer... Ben hunt **** ups led to the other two tries... a terrible read in defence which let cordner strole through a hole, and a shit kick which gave the roosters a seven tackle set, with a try on the end of it. People need to stop making shit up and actually watch what happens during a game, not what their agendas and imagination create.

you're right people do ... Kahu was responsible for the second Cordner try, not Hunt

the refs kept the Broncos in the game.

didn't see the game, listened on the radio. the highlight was the commentator, i was sure he was going to combust the amount of noise he was making, especially the last 5mins. anyone else hear the 612abc call? who was the comm if so?

I didn't see the game, I was however following it on the live thread. Sounded to me like everyone was hard on Benji for two of those tries, though perhaps one of those it was in the lead-up, not the direct scoring play. But then he did a couple of nice things, like he did in the Warriors game after being shithouse in the first half, and all of a sudden he's our best half?
