Hopefully that's not a reference to a scrabble game. If nothing else we finished pretty strongly despite having one less player on the field vs the cowboys. We blew a couple of scoring opportunities late too. So hopefully it adds a touch of self belief and we actually get a few lucky bounces. I have hope every week that we'll get the W. We aren't finals bound this year, but I doubt we'll wind up with the spoon somehow.Dogs to get the w next week heard it here first
Yes I watched an interview with DWZ yesterday and he used it literally 3 times. Personally I hate the saying. It's basically saying nothing.It seems to be the go to line.
Barrett uses "IT is was IT is"
Now the players are using that phrase In interviews.
At least we know the players are listening to Barrett
But anyway "IT IS WHAT IS"
Refer Stuart's comments after last weeks game and Paytens comments a few weeks back.What do you want him or anyone else to say? Our squad is trash it would struggle to beat mounties, It is what it is.

James Graham offered a good insight in NRL 360 on Tuesday. He said for a squad constantly hearing for 5 years from the top of the Club that we can't compete because the previous administration fucked us over salary cap wise...leaves its toll on the playing group.
Emotionally, how does the playing group get up, when they've been told...they can't compete. Tell that to Jackson who busts his ass every week. Then expect him as captain to go into the sheds and get the lads up for a game. There's 10 or 12 players still there that have lived through all this. It takes its toll said Graham.
So I don't want to hear excuses. I don't want to hear it is what it is. I don't expect us to win against some sides who are playing fast open confident footy. But I do want to see players having a dig, making a pact to do that extra effort to stop a line break, to chance their arm and don't die wondering.
We are spiralling downwards and only the players playing as a group can address this on the field. Run hard tackle hard and enjoy yourselves lads.
