Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

Good on Elliot for coming out and addressing this Smith and Storm stuff. The NRL are really pushing every single referee issue that went against the Storm, but they chose to ignore some pretty clear Storm forward passes and wrestling during that game. This is why some people think Storm and Cameron ...

Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

Interesting that Annesley is saying not to harrang his touch judge when Annesley himself has said he got the call wrong. I still reckon I saw white blades of grass move (and stills show his hand millimetres from the sideline). Don’t rugby league experts know that sidelines aren’t flat like a Tennis ...

Yes I mentioned it the other day. I think he had two errors for the season and then added 9 errors since round 20.

Hudson Young suspended for eight weeks

As a ‘one eyed’ Raiders supporter, I hope this decision starts the NRL to crack down on all facials. With any eye contact (even accidental) seen as a mandatory suspension.

Obviously accidental eye pokes would be a 1 week base charge that an early guilty plea would resolve.

You have to wonder where Dugan will find himself if indeed he's on the move, maybe back at the Dragons? Parra? The bulldogs would actually make a lot of sense. He could play fullback again, which is his best position... He's still a pretty good player on his day. Someone will take a punt on him. CN...

2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Teams and Previews

Agree with Lui going back to his simpler role. Don’t know what he’s been thinking over the last few weeks. I think he had two errors in the first 20 rounds and 10 errors in the last 5 rounds.

His defence on the try line is still a big positive, but please simplify your game Dunamis.
