Lets not be fooled, this years been a complete mess and this team is far from good enough. Just because we didnt finish last doesnt mean we arent really shit, massive signings are needed over the off season, for a club like this, this season has been a disgrace and whilst its nice not to get the spoon, we shouldnt be near it. Fingers crossed Baz brings some proper quality and we get back to where we belong!

Shit year as far as results go. But the fight has always been there. Just lacked the ability to counter punch after things went wrong. The for and against tells a story of the difference between us and the Broncos. Compare the perceived quality of the Broncos roster to ours and the number of times the Broncos knew they were beaten and just gave up. Hopefully we take that fight into the rebuilt team next year and that with a few extra classy players, we convert a hell of a lot more close losses to victories.

How many games did we lose when in the lead, comfortably?
Too many. But a lot of it came down to fitness at the end of matches and a lack of confidence when errors crept in. We could play well in 30 minute stints, but let in 3-4 tries in the other 20 minutes.

Way too many but the foundation is there. With proper players that can manage the game and continue with what we build i don't think its long before we do something special. 2025 is my call.

Also came down to game management. Our halves/hooker were absent at critical periods

Yes its true we were horrible but we just cant score points with the likes of cotric,jac and flanigan and a decent hooker we win alot of the games we lost by under 8 points. And would of finished way further up the ladder.
