The Storm well and truly robbed by the bunker. Should have been a penalty for offside after the short kick off at the end. Very unlucky not to score at the death as well.

I **** hate this “defender had a chance to get back into the line” ruling that’s snuck into the game. Kikau made that by milliseconds, if Olam gets that down a split second earlier that’s a **** ruling. Having said that I think the storm player looked to run wide and dodge Kikau and he pursued and engaged to milk.
But player took Kikau’s outside shoulder which is meant to be the no no. The inconsistency of how they rule on decoy runners still annoys me.

A Bulldogs one against us last year was clearly the opposite ruling of many decisions that went against us in attack.

I think the ‘no offside’ ruling against the Panthers was correct because it touched Reimis Smith straight after the Panthers knock on, which made it the correct call to only rule the original knock on.

Watch the replay. Kikau moves laterally to get his outside shoulder taken.

Actually I’ve watched it again and I agree with you. Kikau was entitled to be able to move across. Should have been a penalty

I thought it was the same as last week, as in simultaneously.

I think Munster is odds on to miss the kick though. 40 out, near the sideline.

Yeah, that was my take on it. Smith clearly touched it.

The second Melbourne try came from a knock on from them anyway, so meh. Sometimes the cookie crumbles your way, sometimes it doesn't.

The scrambling defence from both teams was pretty good, they both just missed some key playmakers. With Koroisau, Cleary and Edwards gone by the end it's hard to take too much out of what they achieved in attack.

Wonder if Bellamy will give Olam a stint in reserve grade.

I think the Storm and Panthers players were touching it together, and then the Panther pushes it through down to the other Panther.

Reckon they were lucky with that one.

From what I saw I'm not convinced Matt Burton is the saviour Dogs fans think he'll be. He didn't look to test the defense much and was attacking the edge with Reimis Smith and George Jennings who were awful against the Eels last week.

I thought he looked great for a very junior half very early in his career. That kicking game alone will help the dogs forwards get on the front foot.

His kicking game was good. His ball play was out of sync. Too small a sample size to make judgement though. Style wise he reminds me a lot of Thurston. If he turns out half as good the Dogs are smiling. What they don't want is another promising young half that struggles to make the next step. They've seen too many of those already.

He'll need a year or 2 to make the full time switch I think but he's going to have a good career. Saviour on the other hand. He's going to need help.

Thrown straight into the scrapheap after playing just 1 game this year. Unbelievable

Nah, he has been hyped up a lot by the commentary team, as happens with a lot of players early in their career. Be interesting to see how he goes

That's the key. Been a lot of hyped up halves coming into 1st grade and majority don't turn into the elite players people believe they will. For every Nathan Cleary there's a lot more Luke Brooks, Ash Taylor, Jake Clifford etc.

If Sticky decides he doesn't want CNK anymore, I want Dufty. He'll improve his defensive game and be better than Papenhuyzen is for the Storm with us.

The Roosters seem to have a little bit of a soft underbelly at times. I'm not sure they're top four.

18-0 at half time in favour of the Rabbitohs.

Goodnight Lindsay Collins.

Roosters looking a bit off the pace against a quality team. Lacking a halfback.

what a farcical penalty against the chooks 9 for diving at the kickers legs, he pulled out and barely brushed Reynolds, in a nice footy gods square up they missed the kick and an incomplete set from the 20m dropout

Don't you get tired of defending him in all corners of this forum the moment you perceive someone is even slightly criticising him?

You have to be related to the guy, surely.
