Why is Josh Reynolds out watching the Bulldog's ISP team instead of travelling to NZ with the boys?
Why would he fly over to NZ for ? He isn't playing and has an injuury why would he sit on a plane for 6 hours

Nofa was ok but Thompson shouldnt be too worried. Fonua is prob more of a chance of playing FG he really puts in

I haven't seen the State Cup side play yet and can only go by the comments in this thread....sounds like some of the cuppers are showing up the NRL boys lately...great to see them going well and it confirms what very good depth we finally have at the club....hopefully I will be able to get the rostering right at work and go and watch the State Cup one day,it would be a great experience....
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Great defence.
Warriors are not a bad side either.
Nofo is having rather ordinary time out there.
Can you elaborate on that..?
I thought he was pretty average with some solid runs and some errors.

Idk how long he'll kick around in cup before he looks elsewhere tho.
Kinda looks disinterested and like hes too good to be there.

Your thoughts?

Very impressive again today these boys...

Nichol-Klokstad for the Warriors is a classy player..
I was thinking that at the beginning of the game. Given our lack of speed in our outside backs, I wouldnt mind if we went after him.

Well I would sit with you through the replay but it may not make much difference I suppose.

Agreed.
Fonua has been one of the standouts the past few weeks.

They won 32-0. No did their chances of firsts harm. Drinkwater and Gamble controlled things well, Fonua wrought havoc once again Garner made a few great tackles and Cowan Epere made some nice runs. Nofa and Heleta played hard as.

Auckland were tough but lacked polish. Not a nice team to play on a 5 day turnaround.
One of my sources is Pascoe

Am I wrong?
I thought he played fine. His kicking game was generally very good and he defended well.

What made you point him out of 17 players in a 32-0 win?

Don't see what the big fuss about gamble is about honestly
Tall rangy 5/8th who has a great kicking game, good passing game and decent speed. Can also beat a defender or two. Thats the fuss.

Garner is great. Very impressive.
I agree with that. He deserves an upgraded contract IMO. Looks like a first grader.

That's pretty much how I see it with Nofo too. Playing at a decent level and some really good efforts but in saying that, his body language isn't great even after he scores.

Can't blame him I guess, he's obviously very disappointed not to be in the NRL side.

When did Nofa score today? Did I miss a try?

Or are you talking about last week? I thought Nofa was very enthusiastic when he scored last week.

Drinkwoter kicked conversion from a side line and goal from 50 m, he has improved greatly from 2016.
Nofoaluma must have run again about 200 m. Garner's tackling is inspirational.
At the end convincing 32:0, huge improvement to the last year.
The best: Drinkwater, Garner, Haleta, McQueen, Sironen, Nofoaluma, Fanue, Price.

Previous games ST. Very subdued after scoring by usual Nofo standards!

Robson in the centres is a surprise. Didn’t know he could cover the backline. Big fan of him from what I have seen.
Yep i like him too - i was only thinking the other day that he might make a good centre - he is pretty quick and defends well - i think he played backrow and centre for Newcastle u20s.

Drinkwater Stars In Magpies Shut-Out

AuthorRyan Selvage (Twitter: @RyanSelvage) NSWRL.com.au Timestamp Sat 7 Apr 2018, 02:36 PM

Western Suburbs Magpies remain top of the Intrust Super Premiership NSW ladder five rounds played, after defeating the Warriors 32-0 at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Backing up their Round 4, 44-4 win over the Wentworthville Magpies, the Magpies looked every bit impressive in the five-tries-to-nil success over the Auckland-based outfit.

With the backing of a handy home crowd, the Magpies posted first points and gave their rusted-on fans reason to cheer early. Back-rower Luke Garner crashed his way over the line from close range to send the hosts out by four, with halfback Josh Drinkwater slotting the ensuing shot on goal.

In an opening quarter were momentum ebbed and flowed, Drinkwater soon after ran in another six points of his own – the wily half jinking his way through the line to send his side out by 12 points, 27 minutes played.

Lucas Price collected a fortunate bounce to touch down for the side’s third first-half try, before Drinkwater set sail a 49-metre penalty goal on the brink of the break to cap a near-perfect opening 40 minutes for the Magpies.

Full of confidence at the change of ends, Western Suburbs began the second-half as they did the first – crossing for an early try.

A slice of luck saw a Drinkwater kick bounce perfect for his halves partner Tyson Gamble, who nabbed the free ball to score untouched, under the posts. Drinkwater made no mistake from in front, keeping his unblemished record from the kicking tee intact, in sending the Magpies to a 26-0 lead.

The final try was the dominant Mapgies creating something out of nothing when Nofoaluma skipped across-field, threw a ball to Drinkwater who fractured the defence with his running game before putting Fonua over untouched.

The Magpies consolidated their place atop the competition’s ladder with that win, proving they are the in-form side of the Intrust Super Premiership NSW.
