    3 golden point losses in a row but this was by far the worst performance and probably the end of Cappy's tenure as coach here. There's no way we deserved to take that game to extra time and it would've been a travesty had we won.

    Absolute inept shit from Vatuvei, Maumalo, Lisone to name a few. Well deserved loss and we now find ourself 3 losses on the trot and well outside play-off contention but not a side that looks worthy in any case, even in a season when a top 4 side in the Eels are stripped of their points.

    Bring on the Pamfers, I suspect it'll be a crushing loss and I expect Cappy to fall on his sword before season's end.

    Is this some sort of new record, three golden-point losses in a row??

    Anyway I agree with the poster above, no way did we deserve to win that. But if the team keep throwing the ball over the side-line, I may start to believe in a match-fixing theory....

    I thought we were gutsy. Lack of polish in the first half cost us. Good performance from the forwards but I think our backs have been better.

    I'm shattered. The ecstasy of the comeback in the final minutes and the last minute sideline conversion to tie the match. Then the agony of another golden point loss.:arghh:

    Cappy said on Veitcy today that the Warriors had been spending extra time practicing golden point this week. Maybe they need a whole week.

    Hope McFadden will have the decency to fall on his sword, when once again this team fails to make the 8 at seasons end.

    Tui has to start! Hard decisions have to be made, Manu isn't first grade standard. Either Fusitua to wing or Lolohea to wing, he has to be in the starting 13!

    We certainly didn't deserve to win but I would have taken it.

    After missing out to Manly and now this that is probably the eight out of reach. On the bright side we have taken 2 top 4 sides to golden point and the way we came back in the last 15 minutes was a huge shot in the arm. That was Warriors of old

    Unfortunately so was missing tackles when it really mattered and letting tries in

    But remembering where the team was a couple of months ago when they last played Canberra I can live with tonight. They worked hard and showed some pride and skills and that was all I asked for when we were struggling

    If we can keep getting close to the top teams this season we will be able to build on it for next year

    I agree it will be a big match. If they do to us what they did to the Broncos Cappy is gone, but I don't think they will.

    was really disappointed in only one player and that was Ben. Standing round, walking with the ball, what has happened to this shit kicker?

    Cant see the hate for Manu, he played well with what he was given. Think to many looking through biased eyes. Now he has his 150 might not see him back.

    errors - yep plenty of those, made by way to many players. Static plays that are easy to read, yep heaps of those. Excitement, lots of that and plenty of entertainment as well.

    Fappy will put Wright on the Wing for Manu. Keep Tui on the bench.

    Another loss, another press conference where the coach comes up with excuses. Another season where the team fails to once again make the top 8.
