I like how Nickman slips in Croker as if the guy didn't just miss two piss easy conversions or didn't get busted open by 80kg wringing wet Ryan Papenmilhouse at a crucial moment on the weekend. Hats off, that's one guy definitely dedicated to his agenda. Hahahaha the ironing of YOU declaring someon...

Three critical decisions in the game that all went our way! I hadn't noticed the Whitehead one live but that was a clear penalty that was missed.

Many NRL fans would probably say Boyd Cordner is the best second rower in the game. I think our two Pom second rowers are both better than him.
I wouldn't trade either of them for a single other forward in the comp.

You can throw Josh Papalii in there too.
