Re: wake me up

Did any non-Dragons fan enjoy watching them get handed the premiership? Who was entertained? Once again, rugby league is the loser thanks to abysmal and inconsistent adjuticating - on both sides of the park. This grand final did nothing for the game and nothing for convincing non-rugby league fans t...

Re: Robert Lui Charged Thead

Hugely, hugely disappointing. I hope by some miracle this is all worked out and we can get back to talking and enjoying the football.

Re: I HAVE NEVER EVER...

Shattered, almost hyper-ventilated and this afternoon I'll be rooting for a team I hate, but it was a lot of fun. That was a good game of footy.

Completely agree. Given the sloppy play, I'm very surprised they didn't run away with it.

Re: Mitch Brown

Fantastic game from Mitch last night. I'm sold - he's done everything asked of him this year and deserves a spot in the starting side.

Re: Willow's match report and player review

Two things.

I'm convinced Payten is one of the most important players in the team. If he's fit, we're in with a chance.

Secondly, Ayshford gets his arm free every time he's tackled. I'm with Pymble Pete, what's it going to take to get him to pass?

And thanks for the report, Willow.

Re: Lui

Defensively he is a massive liability and costs us at least a try a week with arm grabbing. His defence can only get better in the next couple of years, but he really needs some coaching in this area. However he is deceptively good in attack when given a chance. IMO Benji and Robbie cut him out too...

Re: Dane Laurie

Laurie showed he hasn't learnt a thing at Penrith, or changed his attitude. He's still lazy, unfit and a liability in defence. I'm glad we got rid of him.

I think Elliot was the only person in the world who thought naming Daine - and starting him!? - would be a good thing for Penrith.

Re: Mitch Brown

I was cheering for Mitch yesterday. He did very well. Mitch and Daniella have both shown lots of promise and taken the opportunities they've been given. Good on them. I don't intend to use this opportunity to have another go at the re-signing and use of Fitzhenry, but I also think Mitch offers much ...

Re: Your Team for next week v..

I can't believe Payten is missing from so many team lists. Saturday's game was further proof of how important he is to the team's success. His defence and desire was missed.

Fair post, Eddie. I too hope that the boys will use this loss like they used the other loss to Souths this year. Another season without making the finals will be hard to take.

Re: Video Ref

I do think the video ref is necessary, but it's abused by the on-field refs continually deferring to it rather than making a decision themselves. In the Rabbitohs/Dogs game a few weeks back the refs made a few calls that would usually have been deferred. It maintained the momentum of the game and ma...
