    Professional foul on Munster in that play the ball.

    lol Paulo is so clearly held in the scrum.

    There's already so much advantage to the attacking side from these midfield scrums.

    As far as PVL rule changes go it's my least favourite.
  3. Magic AJ Parker

    Well that's just a beautiful tackle from Chricton.

    4-0 penalty count Qld.

    lol these coach interviews are such a joke, poor bastards shouldn't have to be put through that.

    "Are you worried about the score Freddy?" :lol:

    That was soft af.

    Teddy needed to follow Ponga on the blind before when Val scored. Mustn't have seen him pop around.

    NSW middle defence has been gash, forwards pretty much had all their workload done by the outside backs and still getting shredded in defence.

    Most obstructions are. You only need to take half a second away from a defender at elite levels to open up a gap. It's black and white if you're an attacker just don't touch a defender and don't sleep in the line.

    So bad. Looked so much better once they got RCG on and fucked Matterson off. I'd be dropping Sims and Matterson quick smart

    And just pick a fucking hooker on the bench instead of running Luai there to start sets then wonder why a backline isn't clicking and set.

    And why do we never try to isolate Capewell in the centres, never asked questions

    lol those pens at the end especially the holding on were such a pisstake. Obvious square ups. The scrum try was not a pen. Happens in literally every scrum.

    What a fucking win. Our middles were amazing. Munster and Holmes were downright ridiculous. Amazing defensive plays. Collins, Grant, Cotter, Carrigan, holy shit they were good.

    Cherry-evans was so poor for most of the game. Scored a try and took some hard runs but challenging that call, not kicking the field goal, poor passes.
  12. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Grant was the x-factor off the bench that NSW just didnt have. Fittler is such a goose.

    lol Hunt did all the hard work and shouldve passed to DCe. He scores for sure.

    Its so obvious that Slater and Smith coaching this team their plan in attack was to use speed around the ruck and just keep battering through the middle in behind the markers. Worked an absolute treat.

    I was referring to Crichton's tackle. Murray stopping in the line was smooth brain. Paulo unlikely to be stopped by Carrigan from there.
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    I'll give it to Wighton. Aside from the costly knock on he played well.
  15. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Props to Ponga. Been poor at club level but he was great tonight. Thought Cobbo was superb coming out of trouble.
  16. Magic AJ Parker

    Yeh Matterson was found out pretty badly, very cumbersome in his movement.

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Freddy bring in a bit of a defensive specialist tbh along the lines of Finucane or Jake Turbo. Can’t remember too many dominant tackles, once QLD’s middle got a roll on in the middle we were incapable of wrestling back momentum and very rarely did we dominate tackles 2 and 3 on kick returns from QLD.
  17. Magic AJ Parker

    Fair, yeh I think Paulo was still a good chance of getting over but doesn’t matter happy with black and white ruling on that one.
  18. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Bit suss about these HIA's. Either they wanna protect players or they dont. Yeo was clearly dazed in that first tackle. Club land hes going off.

    Yeah I was happy to see Jurbo left out pre-game because he is an absolute slug in defence, but Qld showed that you can get away with slowing down the play the ball at this level, so I think it'd be a solid pick. Munster in particular did a huge job lying in the ruck every tackle and allowing Qld to reset their line and race up.

    Fuck that was intense. Players are so fucking fit these days. Fastest game I can recall seeing
