Re: Are we premiership contenders?

What poor video ref decision? I struggle to think of one. The on ground "No Try" that was overturned as "Try" by the video ref when we were 12-6 up. For mine, that overturn never happens - even rarer occurrence in big games where small decisions impact the games result. It's one of my pet peeves wh...

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

I think we are VERY close to being in that top bracket. Storm game was a 20-30 minute period and we got back in kinda, roosters we most definitely shat the bed and still should have won, souths was our biggest test and was another one we could have jagged, we got bashed up and felt that in the cowbo...

Re: 2019 Rd 14 V Sharks: Game Day

I tend to get hyperbolic when watching games, but this morning while I was having my weet bix I re-watched the second half with a bit more objectivity, we got absolutely hosed by the refs the whole way through. It wasn't even 50/50s breaking towards the Sharks, it was 90/10s. What about when the pe...

Raiders’ huge omen? According to Fox Sports Lab, Canberra’s 12-10 win over Canterbury on Saturday night was their fewest points scored in a win in 30 years. The Raiders had not won a match scoring 12 points or less since also winning 12-10 over Manly at Brookvale Oval in Round 8, 1989. Read more: h...

Well I just saw a place called The Greenhouse in Canggu, Bali. Surely that's a sign for a big win today Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk But there's a The Greenhouse on the waterfront in Manly, too. Does that cancel it out? They do very good pasta, if that has any impact. no it also helps.

Papalii, Lui, Sutton, bateman, whitehead, soliola. They are all playing outstanding. I’m so impressed with our line speed and contact.
Anyone notice cecchins literal 10 for the broncos? They were allowed to step on the line and be 8m as the ball was played. Dodgy.

Sammy Williams got on the protein in the off season, I’m sure I saw him stop Klemmer on his own. At this stage I couldn’t care less if Williams or Sezer is halfback, whoever does the job plays for mine.

I gotta say. I’ve gone in to both games with no expectations, last week I was impressed.
This week I’m not super dissspaointed we did look a bit slow tonight, the discrepancy between both teams games last week was significant, the storm made the broncos look a lot worse than they did to us.
