I honestly think we're the only decent team that makes them look good without TT. It's unbelievable.

Haha, yeah the additional errors definitely even things up a bit, but these conditions always reward sides that execute the basics well compared with those who can't. I can't subscribe to the theory of it being a crapshoot. Nor will the coach.

In fact, I always think we are most susceptible to teams that offload the ball a lot or run numbers at our edges. That should be less of a factor here.

I guess they're not going to take a longer look at whether Tedesco was onside there? Tigers deserved a penalty at the other end where Daine Laurie made a half break and the play the ball was slowed down.

Luke Brooks couldn't fight his way through a wet paper sign. The Tigers are getting smashed here.

Can't give Keary this much time and space with the ball. He'll put on a clinic.

Geez Roosters are getting away with slowing down a Tigers play the ball after a break. They’ve done it twice now.

Because of the Tiger's alternatives in the halves.

I just don't understand how the Roosters continue to slow the ruck and get away with it. Every tackle they wrestle for far too long or have a hand or arm tangled up with the ball or ball carrying arm.

So what's the go with Kaufusi only getting 2 weeks for taking Matterson out with his elbow?

Ridiculous.

Agree, looked disgraceful. The forearm was swinging and collected the head the first time on the way down and it has taken a player out of the game.

It's the Storm we're talking about here. Been getting away with grubby tactics for years.

Eels bloke VERY lucky to get away with that IMO.

Yeah, that Matterson is a dodgy bastard. He's so diabolical he probably doesn't even remember doing it.

Thankfully Bellamy thought that there wasn't much to it, so we can all rest assured.
