JThurston's defence very suspect...
He is not yet as his best as you would expect after shoulder surgery , but what a ticker!
I'd expect not for him to step out of the way and let the opposition score a Try...

I can only imagine if one of a halves did that..
Hess is worse Geo , looks like he is trying to catch fairies

Take note Ivan ,Cows look soft up the guts , especially when no Tamaulolo

In the history of the game, have Melbourne ever had to run a set of six from their line without getting a penalty?????

Why didn't Cammy get a penalty then for running into Matt Scott and falling over...

Our defence was so much better than the cows. They are deadset lazy around the playball area.

If Paul Green is such a great coach why does he just keep using Taumalolo as a battering ram - what a waste of a talent.

Ahaha vunivalu is having a shocker opening to the season
What a hog. How do you not give the fox early ball the fullback had no chance of catching him.

Green clearly doesn't think much of TMM how did he think Morgan was right to play.

The commentators on CH 9 even said the ref yelled out to maggot Cam "not this time" after he tried to con them for a penalty. They are obviously onto his pathetic, blouse tactics of diving for penalties yet they continue to fail to penalise the cheating dog.
It was only a few short seasons ago that the refs point-blank refused to give Farah any penalties for running into markers who were not square/offside regardless of whether a penalty was warranted or not.
Shame they don't have the balls to have the same hard line stance against Smith.

29 penalties in 2 games for the Storm. There's got to be an investigation.

typical in bred response..

How about discussing the consistency of decisions...Storm gave away 6 consecutive penalties defending their line at one point..at no point did Checin think to use the bin because 12 on 13 in the GF re-match would not have been a good look...

I'm all for penalising teams for repeated infringements... I hope it continues right through to the Grand Final ...but get consistent with the use on the bin..

You may now resume you toad licking..thank you..

I was thinking at that stage with the amount of penalties a storm player would be marched...he allowed them to flaunt the rules

Its becoming a problem for teams in attack so close to the line, their isnt the room to move, the PTB has slowed right down, defences are up in your face...doesnt make for good viewing...its Rugby like the amount of stoppages were seeing
