err....... No.


Well how is Grix's error against Saints any different to Fifita's against Warrington? Yet you never stop whinging about the Grix one. Is he sleeping with your wife or something?

Timing, significance and uniqueness to that player.

I was responding to another poster as I rarely, if ever, whinge about it. However, it will remain, as does the Watersplash final, indelibly imbedded within my soul.

I think the main thing to remember is Grix did way more right for us than wrong and we should be appreciative of that.

I guess you could argue the difference is that Grix's mistake resulted directly in a try.

Fifitas, although inevitably resulting in costing the game, did involve others who were also then at fault too for not controlling tackles, miss reads in defence etc.

You mean like all those people stood in front of Grix in the Sts game?

All those people did their job which resulted in Saints having to put a very poor kick through as a last resort.

Most significant single error since the famous Watersplash miss maybe?
no it wasn't, Dons missed kick cost us the cup without doubt, Grixs missed attempt to knock the ball out cost us a game which we probably wouldn't of gone further on in the play offs

both was human error that could and should be forgiven neither would of wanted it but it happened, yes sigh over it and think what if.
it will always stick in my mind Neil talking about his brother never being the same, we talk about mental heath issues and how we should address them yet we still try in ingrain mistakes on the players they will never forget.

been a good player for us on both occasions

Yes it was. If you read my comments, I wasn't comparing the two incidents nor the individuals, merely the significance

I challenge anyone to recollect and then tell me of a single individual error during the period between Don Fox's in 1968 and Grix's in 2017 of greater or even similar significance.
