    What a game.

    I didn't see Canberra winning that game at all, especially not with Hodgson having such a shocker.

    I reckon Melbourne have been playing to their capacity for a large part of the season, I don't know if they have it in them to kick it up another gear come finals time.

    Yeah easy to say now but Canberra were always more likely to win this week than last week IMO.

    Geez Souths held tryless by the Bulldogs. Have thought they were pretenders all year but didn't see that coming with Sam Burgess back.

    Big shakeup in the top 5 tonight.

    Sea Eagles Vs Raiders next week & Sea Eagles Vs Storm the week after will be extremely interesting clashes. I think Manly are a real chance this year.

    I've been very confident Canberra would win all week. Easts are very obviously the best team in the competition and I think Canberra slightly outplayed them last week bar for Tedesco being the difference. Roosters did have 3 key players out though and Canberra just the one.

    Agree 100% on Melbourne. They're a well oiled unit but besides Munster and Smith running the show they deadset don't have any advantage across the field over any of the other top sides (probably leave Souths out of that now that they're busted). Their huge advantage should be their middle third but if they can't bash Canberra than they're a bit over rated for mine. A lot will have to go Canberra's way to get to the gf considering Sezer and CNK offer such little creativity on the spine. But their man match ups just brutalise pretty much every team bar Easts. Happy to come third at this point and hopefully jag a week one win v Easts considering the draw flips anyway if you lose and weeks 2 and 3 wouldn't look as hard.

    Just on last night's game alone. Melbourne's 3 tries were;

    - a lucky bounce from a kick v 12 men.
    - A very forward final pass against 12 men for a second time under dubious circumstances.
    - That freakish Vunivalu try off a 1 on 1 contest in defence

    And fuck Ben Cummins is a really horrible referee when it comes to dealing with players. Magic has been saying this for years and I finally see it.

    Yep Ben Cummins is pure trash as a ref. Worst easily.
  6. AVA T Delonge

    This has to be close to the worst game of the season.
  7. Lukic L Popovic

    That's been said far too often lol. There's been some shocking games this year.
  8. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    He's a retard for saying it in a public forum like that. It's something he should have kept between Boyd and himself.
  9. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    TPJ is solely on the back of his rep. Anyone else on the field does that and it's OK.

    Yeah; Turpin's was pretty malicious.
  10. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    There aren't many options though. Unless they are going to do future deals and wait 2-3 seasons for a decent side.
  11. Paddy P Orr

    I'd actually be fine with that if they actually had those in mind.
  12. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    TPJ copping 5 weeks is a joke.
  13. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    I shouldn't be surprised by the nonsense the NRL throws up, but TPJ getting 5 weeks for that is a disgrace.

    How on earth have the Dogs won the last four?
  17. Magic AJ Parker

    Dean Pay has pulled a minor miracle to get the Dogs to 20 points this season.
  18. Lukic L Popovic

    fucking lmao Garner gets 1 week and Brown 2. This is a disgrace. The amount of favouritism Parra get from the nrl is disgusting.
  19. Paddy P Orr

    If everything went their way they could play finals with a higher loss than win record. Doesn't really sit right tbh.
  20. AVA T Delonge

    Fuck you're a little bitch. :laugh:

    The issue with Garner's is that literally any shoulder charge is classified as a 1 week suspension, which is retarded AF yes. The major issue is when players like Ponga and Slater (back in the day) get away with shoulder charges completely, not the grading once a shoulder charge has been deemed to have occurred.
