Isaac Luke with 3 or 4 knock ons was a bit of a killer, Kata dropping a certain try.

Gavet was our best prop tonight I thought.

Dont know why anyone would want to drop Hiku, he was rock solid. Always went forward and made his tackles

Handling errors and repeat sets killed the Warriors that last 60. I thought the energy completely dropped in the last 60 too, as soon as the first set of subs hit the field

We won in Nth Queensland for the first time since 2002, we had to contend with a committed Cowboys and retarded refs.

Not a vintage performance, but we got the two points.
We won there in 2013 if my memory isn't too blotted out from beers...

One hundred percent we lose that game under that weight of adversity during any other time in our history apart from the Glory years.

And we lose big.

They might have screwed up tonight....but they fought in the end when it counted most.

Brilliant ugly win.

Two main points:

1. Good to have the win.
2. Perenara needs to be sacked.

Absolute pitiful second half. Shaun Johnson was our best player, even taking hitups towards the end.

Forwards lack punch and fitness seems to be getting worse not better. We looked like we had absolutely had enough by 45 mins into that game.

I get your negativity TD but if their fitness wasn't enough we would have got smashed. The key imo is that in spite of the poor completions and errors, they were fit enough to defend without dropping bundle.

101 ways to gift your opposition 2 points.

Written and directed by Sir Steven Kearney.

That 2nd half was horrendous besides the D, so frustrating.

Unfortunate for Kata, people may get to Beale inside Maumalo for abit so we can put that question to bed once and for all.

I don’t think so, we wonder under Elliot in Townsville if my memory serves me right

Turning point in that game and it almost cost us was the Beale "knock on"...changed all the momentum and gave the Cows an undeserved opportunity to get back into the game. The refereeing this year has been nothing short of atrocious.
Was that the turning point where we won? Or was it the other turning point?o_O

So -

The Warriors ran rampant in the first half. We had all the momentum.

Try assist to Peranara which leads to Cowgirls getting on the score board. Momentum shift. Cowboys start to win the arm wrestle.

Second half. Cowboy's pick up where they left off. A good majority of the 50/50's went the their way in the second half also. Warriors hanging by a thread, but did enough to hold on.

Conclusion - while the Warriors were by no means perfect, my view is that the referee's played an active part in the momentum swing. Some of those calls were really, really bad. The sad thing is that we are seeing more and more "bad calls." The standard of refereeing is atrocious, and the NRL, rather than burying their heads in the sand, need to do something about it.

I've said my part about Perenara in the other thread.

Given the circumstances, the boys played well and held tough to get the win.

I was wanting to blow up against the penalties then we'd get some lucky calls go our way. Was getting confusing if I should be mad or night.

The Green knock on looked like him diving on it to me, looked more like a Cowboys knock on.

We nearly got pinged again for a late drop out but needed to stretch it out to hopefully get the call reversed.

Some of the quick taps are frustrating as they were letting them go tonight but often even when it isn't an inside the 10 penalty they still pull them back.

Love to know what sort of spray Peranara got as you see those in a lot of tackles.

Ugly points:

That ugly set losing 25 metres and getting no kick away.

Bully's handling.

Lack of forward punch after oranges. Just glad they were slow release oranges.

Some epic defense there, with a big team like the cowboys it's just good to see we can still d set after set on our line especially after what the rorters and bunnies did to us.
With all the bullshit of the game it's great to see us get these 2 points away.

Nah mate.

Always take a win in Townsville no matter how it comes. Shit, so many wins on the road this year...if you are seeing doom and gloom from that fact then I think you need to sleep on it and reconsider. Granted, a lot of work to do though.

Lawton cemented a bench spot tonight.
