i can't agree . they just handled the conditions better than us.Aside from Birraz, nobody really showed up tonight, they looked like they were already on the beers for NYE.
First game in a long time i remember us losing not because we were the worse tea, but just because we misfired across the board and everybody had an off night
Yeah that’s how I see it, 3 to be consistently competitive. But agree with you Mick to actually challenge for top spot let alone be dominant, we need another 5 or 6.Who said dominant? 3 players from top 6 competitive. At moment best result would be 7/8. 3 players might nab us 6.
Well I'm happy to take it. Other times we've been shafted, so about time we got a break. I suspect other refs might have called it too.They didn’t miss it. Had a good look at it, Rules state if it deflects off the player and bounces into the arm it’s not hand ball.
The pressure is on him now to do something every time. Needs to shelve that and just play good simple fast football let his instincts decide when to carve people up. That left foot. shot he crafted against multiple opponents was a cracker. Without the wind he scores I think.young bloke getting ahead of himself .he'll be fine
Totally agree. The upcoming games between now and the jets in February will determine where we sit whether that’s sneaking in to the six or looking at another spoon and anywhere in between. It’s critical that we take wins from the jets and roar and another one or two along the way would help a lot.We now have a run of seven games where we don't play any of them. This period will define our season.

Did it bounce off Tommy himself or somebody else?How did the officials and VAR miss Tommy's handball in the first few minutes? From where my family & I were standing, Blind Freddy on a galloping horse would've seen it. We dodged a bullet there, result could've been 4-zip.
I read that also. However, what does that mean. It could be simply that he will sit on what he has as long as no-one wants to make a move out now. There are a few players not getting game time that may be keen to try their luck elsewhere. If that happens then there is the 'opportunity' depending on the amount of salary cap / visa spots freed up. I am sure Staj is actively looking for next season and would also be looking at opportunities to bring more of his players now if the opportunity 'presented' itself.Staj has said he won't be looking to change players or recruit in Jan unless something opportunistically comes up
I couldn't tell from my position where it occurred. I assume from what you are saying about VAR that it was inside the box otherwise VAR shouldn't be able to comment.How did the officials and VAR miss Tommy's handball in the first few minutes?

Lets face it any hand ball this season is a lottery, I don't even try and work them out these days I just watch in amusement. I thought it was a 50/50 and happy it went our way as that was the only 50/50 that went our way all night. Enough has been said about the game and performances and it is just another failure to back up after a win. 2nd last now the Road beat the hapless Drive Byes, I've said it before. I don't think Babbel will make seasons end.It was inside the box. I don't remember if it bounced off the body first or not. My son-in-law beside me (a qualified ref, has reffed some NPL games) immediately said "Oh shit, that's a pen."
It was right in front of me as well and it hit him in the body and it looked like he moved his arm to control the ball so I thought dead set pen. Referee was unsighted and camera angle wasn't great so I thought we dodged an early bullet too.It was inside the box. I don't remember if it bounced off the body first or not.
