We are such a train wreck defensively on that right edge but also think both their tries were fortunate.

Storm stop the scrum clock which stops the game clock and the ref allows Tits to wind the game clock down anyway.
“Timekeeper issue” load of you know what

yep, only lazy defence, dumb penalties, and selective refereeing keeping the Titans in this one.

Feel for John's having Fifita running at him all night, what a welcome back to the team. :lol:

No Hughes for the rest of this game (and possibly longer) is a HUGE concern.

The replay of Hughes injury didn’t look great.

...and now our "defence" is not coming up at all, giving the Titans all the time in the world. Here we go again.

I don't often talk about refs, but this has been an appalling badly referreed game so far.

I get the logic of keeping Munster at FB while Hughes is off but we shouldn't expect our makeshift halves to do very much at all. Coopers kick was good to catch Campbell in goal.

Nofo and Olam will be a great pair

So we pack the scrum and the ref stops the clock. The siren goes a few seconds later and he calls off the half???

A few weeks ago after an incident, the NRL made a point that the ref decides full time, not the siren at the ground.

That isn’t an error. That is cheating. This needs investigating (/Toovey impression).

Our discipline has been so poor again. That Seve penalty was so stupid and unnecessary.

60minute mark when Tino takes the run after his penalty, JB blatantly tea bags him and smiles after - good work cap I genuinely loved that
