    Killer was just before half time. Bad kick in attack put the Force back on their own try line, then a really poor box kick kept the game alive with 15 seconds on the clock. That decision cost a player for 20minutes and a try. Hardly the only example of poor kicking though, which was the biggest problem overall.

    Our territory and kicking game again let us down, and those 2 scrums cubelli failed to put the ball in really killed us.

    I was fuming that this wasn't even looked at (Wright lifting Koteka way past the horizontal and dumping him on his head) - surely had to be a yellow?!

    I couldn’t believe that nobody saw that but saw some silly penalty instead!
    Hate stans inability to rewind etc. ie either ff or rw.

    Could someone confirm the tackle count? With about 20 to go I thought I heard something like 160-60! But I was drinking at the time!

    With the ref right there. He had to look through the "beyond the horizontal" to see the action on the other side.

    the major factor IMO was our inability to score tries-it seems defence sucked all the energy out of the team and we just didn't have the wow factor to make something out of nothing,which most successful teams seem to be able to do(apart from the game against the reds)
