I reckon if you took the worst squad out of those 4 teams, they’d still beat the Broncos 9 out of 10 times
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

That team would still destroy the broncos

Yup. This is a concept that could be run to keep more TV content going, and punish the Broncos players. Make it happen, Batman.

Penrith looking far more likely. South's hanging in there.

There's a hell of a lot of forward passes in this game.

Only two points in it. I'd prefer a Storm V Rabbitohs Grand Final now. By a long way. And the Storm winning it. Which is an awful thing to say. They are all disgusting teams left in contention.

That’s probably it, probably Panthers win. They are so obnoxious.

Phil Gould is an absolute punish to listen to.

That high shot on Knight would have been a penalty any other time

Cracking contest. Personally I'm delighted the Panthers won; I do not like Souths at all. Walker was great for them, though. Penrith have the best halves pairing in the comp for me. Just hope they can keep up their run and finish off the Storm.

When Cleary put up that short chip kick they scored from, the first thought I had was, George can do that too! And he has.

Just on wingers; in my head I always bracket Mansour and Rapana together, I see them as similar players. But To'o on the other winger is better than anyone Canberra have at the moment.

An ex Wigan and Penrith player lives just round the corner from me; I'm sure he will be delighted.

They’re obnoxious jerks, with chief jerk, Greg Alexander polluting the commentary. I guess the other obnoxious character Phil Gould will challenge him.

Whatever. We can agree to differ. Of course I don't have the dog in the fight you do.
