Just as well the Bulldogs took this match against the Broncos to the Olympic Stadium, instead of ours! They surely would not have fitted in the crowd at Belmore!

That's the funniest ever try against the Broncos. Maybe! It'd be funnier if we'd scored it!

Doggies are a real chance here. These 2 played about 6 weeks ago and the Doggies were completely jipped. How will the refs get the Broncos home tonight?

8 - 0 th doggies early.

Back to back penalties to Broncos and they score.

No idea what the 2nd penalty was for but it came on the last tackle and they allowed a quick tap so I have no idea what it was for.

James Roberts never plays the ball correctly (play on). Doggies player doesn't touch the foot in the play the ball (penalty Broncos).

Should really have been a penalty to the Broncos for something.

James Roberts looks like a pasty, bloated alcoholic.

Tigers/Knights was a pretty sloppy game. Plenty of errors, injuries and quite baffling referee decisions on a few occasions.

Storm just clinical as usual but Bunnies came back well just before halftime.

Cam makes a tackle, then basically stands in the play the ball area shrugging his shoulders while obstructing play. Play on referees call.
