You lil rippa! Drug/cap cheap s vs the mother of all mongrel scabby maggots next week. Best case scenario.......the drug addled Sharks roll the cap cheating/rock n roll wrestling Storm next week, then the cap-exempt Unca Nick's puppets in the GF. 2 minutes before the end of the GF the NRL release their findings of Sharps salary-cap-rorting and declare 2018 premiership null and void. Win, win, win all round and the premiership winning Sharps of 2018 get banished to being remembered as the #%#%stained jocks of the NRL forevermore ala Storm. Maggots run this game now. Storm/ Rorters/Sharps.... there are no clubs to barrack for or be proud of there representing our sport. Scumbags one and all. Todd will be happy.

Why would Cleary attempt a field goal from 48m hahaaaaaaa.

Maloney and Cleary blew it
There was no time on the clock. What was the better option?
Literally anything else.

Yeah, they were so organised in the last 5 minutes. I’m sure they’d have pulled off the miracle play :roll:

How much weight has Sharon lost? Must be 5 kg at least.
Anyway, don't really care who wins the rest of the games as long as it's not the Storm, Rorsters, Danks Skanks, Souths.

Who does that leave? Oh yeah, Go Saints!

Storm are definitely the lesser of 4 evils for me. Can’t cop any of the other 3. Doubt i’ll bother watching the gf if the Sharks win next week.

I'd rather sleep on a bed of razor wire, than support the team and coach who's tactics have ruined the game for more than a decade. Like FTB above, the drug cheats aren't too far behind in my measure and chooks similarly impossible to cheer.

That leaves tonight's combatants as the best of a bad bunch, so whoever wins gets my limited support next week.

I'd rather Woods get the shot at glory then Tedesco.

Yep with you on that! Roosters, Storm and Sharks represent the unfairness of the whole comp, imo. Go Saints!

I'm leaning towards rabbit's because I think they have more chance of going all the way than saints

But a solid win to saints like their victory over donkeys last week would certainly convince they what it takes

I don't like RL profits going to individuals but I appreciate how Rus risked him money on the Bunnies. I think James Packer donated a few (7?) million back to their coffers that was profit and maybe investment. So in a way they deserve support - plus we would not have our favourite son back if if...

Why? As tragic as losing him was, there’s no way he wasn’t going to end up at the Roosters. They offered him a truckload, and he’s a marquee player. He deserves to be at a marquee club. I still don’t like him, but I kind of can empathise a bit with him. Woods, I can’t. Walked out on the club as captain. I always like to believe a captain is an extension of the coaching staff and board. A spokesman. He didn’t speak, threw the club under the bus and left us in a ditch. Unforgivable given his role.

I understand where you are coming from, but i just can't stand the way Tedesco always talks up the Roosters Club. Do you ever wonder if maybe we would have made the 8 as well this year if he was prepared to stay put? I'm sure there was at least a couple more games we would have won and our attack would have been far better. Anyway, it's just my preference.

Literally? Kick for touch? Run backwards? Pass it to Trent Merrin?

With all three of those options - same result as a dud kick for a one pointer.
