    Yeah I don't get it.

    Being in the middle of the field, it's hard to kick to the touch without it going out on the full, he also didn't want to kick it dead. The ref would likely call time off in both of these cases giving the Dogs a final play or 2.

    The other option was to take the tackle and risk a strip, (or a penalty for submission; is that still a thing?) or pass the ball with no absolute knowledge of what the other bloke was going to do.

    He took the best option.

    There's a HT scoreline I haven't seen in a while.

    How Blake has survived another season in first grade I'll never know.

    Good to see Raiders get up. I think they'll probably be the biggest threat outside of the top 6come finals time so hoping they make it.

    Yeah I tipped Canberra and Newy to make the 8 again at the start of the year but had pretty much written them off a few weeks ago due to internal dramas and injuries. Canberra seem to working as a team a bit better since they let George Williams go and settled on a starting hooker, and Newcastle are slowly getting their best players back. Weirdly they're not far out of the eight as it stands, and at full strength I definitely think they're both a lot better than Cronulla/StG.

    My smokier tips for the 8 once I thought Newy and Canberra were gone - the Warriors and Titans - are pretty much gone themselves now instead.

    Dreading tonight's game. Melbourne's gonna murder NQ.

    There always seems to be a first whenever Sutton refs us, dead set just watched him overrule his touchy on a forward pass despite being 30-40m away from the action. Cunt fucking hates us, makes every game he refs us so hard to watch.

    Whatever the opposite is of the guy who would want to be kicking for your lifeā€¦ Tedesco is that guy.

    Just the way he plants his feet when lining up for the conversion, it all just looks so awkward & unnatural for him.

    Granville at fullback. Lol I get that he played there years ago before first grade but it's just trying to put a bandaid on a wound.
  10. Magic AJ Parker

    Had no interest at all in watching this game until they named Granville at fullback.

    Has an Anasta at fullback vibe about it.

    I think Newy are just so sub par. They should be pretty gun, but just don't do it for me.

    I hope Titans get in, I think the NRL will be much better for having Holbrook and them do relatively well for a while.
  12. Magic AJ Parker

    Go on Cowboys.

    Getting real success going wide and then hitting Melbourne Stromers back infield with some unders lines

    When is Lomax back for the drags?
  14. Cribbage RG Cribb

    He's not injured anymore but the NRL didn't let him go to Queensland with the rest of the bubble because he refused to make a statement about the Vaughan party, so he's probably at least three weeks away now.

    I thought he must have just had to do a 14 quarantine to cover himself. The Mean Reverters need a classy centre.
  16. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah I think that's basically true but if he's not allowed to train with the team until the day before the game or something he's probably missing the third week as well.

    So good to see weather conditions player a role in footy again.

    Hadn't seen winds like we saw in the Roosters/Knights game in what feels like for decades. Very nostalgic to see a half kicking the piss out of the ball only to see it travel 10metres.

    First time in years I've seen NQ actually have a proper dig.
  19. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    It's always pretty windy there. The ground is literally 500m from the ocean and only houses in between.

    I'm not sure that that Croft offload was forward last night.
