I hate how Smith was injured last night, completely unnecessary and predictable and it is all about slowing the game down. Only allow one defender at a time so a player's body cannot get twisted and abused. As well as hurrying the game up this will allow champs to look more like champs as will have more chance to showcase their talents. So if we had a Lomu and he scores tries all night than good on him and he gets paid accordingly - the South Pacific will become so rich.

If we keep multiply defenders then the ref must yell held a lot earlier and have a much louder whistle.
Ooohhh.. One on one.
No thank you
One on one there would be a lot less of dragging the attacking player out over the line so less interruptions. I can't remember them doing that to that famous big fast Parra winger of a few decades ago can't remember his name. Would be shocking for the turnstilers - all out of a job.

Parra played really hard and if they had a half decent playmaker they could have caused a boil over. Just cant believe how Moses could not create something when the Storm were one short and had another bloke who could hardly walk and a empty bench. Moses to me is a one trick Pony, has a great long ball, but that is where it ends

If there is one bloke in the NRL that you surely couldn't feel sorry for that sort of tackle happening to it's Smith. He is the grubbiest bloke to have played the game in the last decade or so. 3rd-man-in, late, unecessary cowardly slams into tackled players' backs/knees are his specialty. He got what he deserved.
As another poster said above, check out his tackle on Sosaia Feki from just last week, he could of easily wrecked Feki's elbow or shoulder with that unecessary grappling and twisting of his arm. Totally unecessary yet it goes unpunished yet again.
Karma paid Cammy a visit last night and it was great. Hope he cops plenty more in the next two months.
The Sharks will be licking their lips at the prospect of ripping into the Storm again in the finals, they have got their measure when it comes to playing physical and grubbily.

Yes and Will Chambers is not far behind. His antics in Origin and that dog of a tackle on Hayne last night are just some of his low lights. He fair dinkum could've broken Hayne's neck!

Yes I was expecting Parra to take full advantage of Melbourne's injury woes at some stage last night. They've been playing well in attack lately, but could do nothing when it mattered last night. It's a testament to the Storm's defence really, but it also shows how bad St George were last week that they could put 40 on them!

Chambers tackle was as "textbook" of a crusher tackle as you can get, especially the jumping off his feet part to really deliver maximum force, it was disgraceful.
The NRL will show how little balls they have by suspending him lightly, if they were serious about outlawing crusher tackles Chambers needs to get 7, 8 weeks to make an example of the grub. No doubt he will get only 3 or less, no deterrent at all. Better for their finals opponents if he doesn't get rubbed out for the season though, he is a liability and was close to the worst player out on the field yet again.

If they hadn't of got of gaol last week against the titans they may very well have been staring at going out backwards with their next 2 games away against the Warriors and Storm.

Can't see them having an impact in the finals, Gus really stuffed it up. Brings a smile to may face

Whilst it's good to see Gus make a huge mistake, the tipping, the tipping so far this week and last week.

1/4 so far

That's it

Apparently the players hates Griffen so they sacked him

They love Ciraldo so he got the gig for the year

They than have a lucky win over Titan's and a home loss to lowly Newcastle
