I really think it's time to start penalising ball carriers for walking off the mark.
The is Eels outfit is a serious fucking football team imo. I know it's early but I reckon they're in for a big year.
Hayne actually looks like he wants to be out there. Haven't seen that for several years.
Agree with Kimmorley that Moses should be in contention for NSW. The stocks are just so poor and I don't know how you continue to pick Pearce, regardless of whether he's the best club halfback south of the border.
Fantastic run from Blake. It was going to take some individual brilliance to get Penrith back in this match.
This is a good footy match. Really enjoying the individual contests in this match.
Um, how is that not a neutral infringement?
Yeah, fuck that shit. Useless reffing is useless.
Nah I'll stand by it. They got it all wrong in the second half but I really rate them. Penrith are no slouches either and they played very strongly after 35. Both teams ripped in and ran harder than in any other first round match imo. It was good to watch.
Funny enough, I think this was what Parra's downfall was. They tore in hard and just died in the heat by the end. Penrith were much smarter in the 2nd half with their ball control and the heat took its toll. King was on deaths door by the end of that game.
Yeah I really like King as a player but there's absolutely no need to expect him to play 80.
I thought we were going to get blown off the park in the lead up to this one and it was looking very ominous early. Big effort to stick with it and get the W
Is Dean Whare officially out of favour or are they managing him back from injury?
Anyone noticed that DWZ tries to start a fight every week, has the bloke ever actually thrown a punch?
Managing him back from injury. There were reports for a while that he'd definitely miss Round 1 with that hammy and I think he may have ended up playing reserve grade anyway (actually not sure tbh?) but he wasn't fit enough to risk in first grade. Blake actually had an awesome game so it'll be interesting to see if Whare finds his way back in once he's properly fit. He should, but Griffin is coach, so...
