Given how Fifita stormed off and Thompson was abusing him afterwards, i very much doubt that.
Look again

PH had to draw the last defender otherwise he would had just slid out to take Thompson.

Fifita dropped directly behind PH and was in no position to receive a pass and in effect had taken a 3 on 1 down to a 2 on 1

Pass to Thompson yes, but Fifita was MIA

I'm sure Kane Evans, Reece Walsh, Jazz Tavaga and Matt Lodge are having a few beers right now quietly laughing.

Disagree.

Totally ignored him and cut into his space

He did the exact same thing in the first half which caused a disallowed try from Fafita.

Nah by that point Herbert had already over ran him, hence why he drops off.

Fifita was screaming for early ball, had his hand up and everything.

Draw the last defender? Errr. All Herbert had to do was pass to Fifita straight away and he goes in barely touched.

Fifita with the ball on a 3-2 overlap 5 metres out. He is scoring every single time.

Yeah but he drew both defenders and didn't even try the pass over to Thompson or out the back, nothing. I feel for the poor bugger but that was unforgivable. Oh well haha get fucked Titans, would have been something special though.

Yeah he did but it went into touch.

He almost did everything wrong in that situation.

Even if he holds the ball and doesn’t try to throw the miracle pass to Thompson, they have time for another tackle against a scrambling defensive line.

Yeah after he was wrapped up, maybe he thought time was up.or something. Pretty painful to watch lol.

The old firm of Reynolds, Gagai, Burgess and Cook all stood up and delivered Waynes plan tonight. Was a bit like watching Tommy Turbo go missing last night watching Cleary, To’o, Kikau etc all get thumped was bizarre. No ones done it. Always wonder how much the psychology of finals football starts to play it’s part. The Panthers just didn’t look like the same team.

Panthers uncharacteristic implosion there ala last years gf
Bunnies became a realistic 3rd option, Wayne’s last chance at a title

Another good game.
Prelim finals will be interesting.
Potentially;
Storm vs Panthers
Rabbits vs Manly
I’m so willing another upset and the Roosters to get over the top of Manly. Just so we can see some fireworks in the finals with Roosters and Rabbitohs. They beat them by 40 in round one. I’m gonna hold onto that!😂

Tits and Chooks probably played the only game that will be worth watching this year.

No wonder the Tits flogged us.

They will be a good side next year for that experience.

They defended well, normally their attack it one of the best in the comp.

They certainly deserved to be in the finals ahead of the Warriors.
