Re: 2018 Rd 21 V Panthers: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart wary of fast-finishing Penrith Panthers If the Canberra Raiders needed a reminder of Penrith's now trademark fast finish, they need look no further than their win over Manly last week. "The last three encounters have all been very close. We let them back into the...

Re: 2018 State of Origin III: Queensland V New South Wales

Slater was a terrible choice for player of the series. Tedesco played one of the all-time great Origins in Game 1 and no-one came close to that performance over the rest of the series. On that alone he should have had a head start in the voting. Outside of Tedesco, Turbo Tom, Maloney, Cordner or Coo...

Re: The Jarrod Croker binning

There were two professional foul sin-binnings on the weekend - Croker and Mitchell. Both offences were committed by players defending in their own 20 and hindering an attacking player off the ball. Neither was worth a penalty try (as the rule stands, and fair enough) and while Croker's was a tough d...

Cowboys limped, staggered and crawled into the top 8. Now they are 1 win away from a GF berth. Unbelievable. I really couldn't understand why Parramatta was such a hit favourite in this one - I think it was more to do with Sydney media hype for one of their own than the actual players on the field....

Queensland's dirty little secret is that they realise they're no longer the side they were four or five years ago, and that's why they do everything they can to stop a game of football breaking out.

Don't worry about his stats, Woods' air swing when he tried jumping on the NSW huddle after Jennings' try was comedy gold. If you didn't see it, go looking for the video. That should be enough for him to keep his spot for next year

If Dugan's still out then I don't see much to be gained by messing with the backline for Game 2. The halves were better than anything else on offer and, if nothing else, Morris did a good job on GI. Mansour was good, Jennings didn't get much space and Fergo and Moylan will be better next time round....
