Spit it out bogan
If you look at the yardage stats I think it ended up with us at about plus 80 metres
As I said to the brother in law it was a very strange game
Sorry mate the forum had a fit last night so I posted twice instead of editing the one post.
Geo has already repeated my post that went missing.
I could accept that it wasn’t an 80 minute effort if Penrith galloped in 3 tries late and made the scoreline respectable but our defence remained solid. We blew them off the park early and then held them out once they worked their way into the game adding that we were dudded a 40/20 call and Maloney would never have factored into the disallowed try (I am OK with the call though as by the letter of the law it was obstruction.)
Wasn’t knocking the win in any way , was just making an observation
Yeah fair enough, reasonable points you made, just sharing a different opinion is all. Dominating the ruck doesn’t necessarily win you the game. Bulldogs had stellar completion rates early in the year and they struggled to score points. Penrith did well in one facet of the game but fell over just about everywhere else. They did nothing with the footy and they only clocked on defensively after 20 odd minutes.
