I don't think I've ever seen a side be as "chalk and cheese" as the Warriors. One week they go 43/45 and could have given anyone a game, the next week they don't look like scoring.
Most NRL teams would have still beaten us last week.

2 out of the 5 Penrith tries came from what they Solely created.

3 came off the result of our errors - those 3 in the first half.

We were pinged all night by the refs - whereas Penrith have got away with some infringements similar to what we got done for.

Obviously as the game went on, when the chips went against us our effort weaned.

We don’t have enough game changein our back line to open the game up where we stuck in our own half.

We struggled for territory in this game - and when it came it was too late.

Our halves as a combination are crap - Green is slow and his kicking game is shit, Niko just can’t inject himself.

Theres no speed in our back line - we have a centre on the wing who struggled under the high ball all night.

The one back who found some space died with the fucken ball.

3 of the 5 first choice back5 are unavailable.

Our forwards are decent. So all this who-haaa about needing more towards due to the injury toll - we need more dynamic outside backs and better halves.

Tonight was a combination of refs, errors at the wrong time and a lack of creativity out of our own half to counter that - when mixed together as it was tonight, it created a shit show.

D for defence. We held out pretty well, I thought, with the weight of possession in the first half. No attacking game to speak of - never looked like scoring.
Too many errors too.
New rules really gas the teams with the weak rosters - I expect opposition to run up cricket scores in the future.

I know we are shit, but we should lose because we suck and that reason alone.

Reffing seemed to over compensate for a reasonably neutral affair last weekend.

My wife who has never watched a game said "I can't believe how blatant and unfair the referee was. No wonder you're always grumpy"

You couldn't pay Nikorima to run the ball. No really we tried with about 600k, he just wouldn't do it.
Because he is not a half. And to think Kearney said he was courting him a year earlier than he joined.

Our Roster is fucked.

Ok, short and sharp,
Our Halves currently have a skill of not being able to put players through a gap.
Pompey unfortunately offers neither speed or menace
Hats off to Herbert he really dug in after two horrors under the high ball. Faumasilli looked good.
We are a magician in the halves and a dynamic centre with speed away from the team we all want.
