There is just no way to downplay this loss.

It's one of the worst losses, if not the worst loss, in Great Britain's history. It's fucking PNG. It's a reserve grade side playing on the International stage. Great Britain never should have lost this game.

28 unanswered points. 28. Against PNG. This wasn't even a fluke by PNG where a bit of luck in the game resulted in a win. They dominated Great Britain.

Something stinks in the Great Britain camp. Whether it's the coaching, or there is an issue within the playing group. They have a good side. They should not be returning home without a win.

Yeah Tonga Play for their coach.
And PNG don’t? And Australia don’t?

It was Tonga’s grand final. It was the Kumuls grand final, it was likely the 30th plus game for the pom players for the year and they probably didn’t give a **** about the result. They still should have won, but so should have Australia

Australia should have won and it was poor coaching that played a big part in the loss. It was also a very highly passionate side that was not lacking in talent. This is a side that can compete with the best because they have extremely good players.

The Lions are a side with some gun players and are tier one. This doesn’t even compare. Australia also has heaps of chances against Tonga but kept dropping it, they were not outplayed in almost every facet.

Let’s not forget Blake Austin was chosen on the wing! You can not provide excuses and pardon the coach if you expect to be taken seriously.

So I guess I can be taken seriously as I have said his position is untenable and he's had a shocker within the past 15 posts itt?

There are similarities, both GB & Aus were expected to beat teams from lesser RL nations however neither did. Yes Tonga is better than PNG, but Aus is better than GB as well. Sure what I said is an excuse, but it doesn't mean it isn't true.
