This.Meh, non question, you have to consider the age profile / experience / conditions / relative motivations of the teams. Fast forward 18months to 2 years with the same cattle on a dry day at Optus then yeah we probably do win.
I really couldn't understand a lot of the board being all like 'This is a 50/50 game for us' etc. We are a young side, sitting at the bottom of the 8 due to other teams losing games, we beat the sides below us but struggle against teams above us. We played a genuine flag contender last night, skilled, hardened, drilled. Yeah it's disappointing that we lost, but it really just reinforces that we are where we should be. I'm not worried. We're still trending upwards IMO.
