    Some truly moronic decision making by the Sharks that game, fair play to the Cowboys for grinding out the win.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Delighted! I thought it wasn't going to be our day when the Sharks scored very early - thankfully the Cows showed great tenacity and won the second half! I still can't believe it - what a game!

    Amazing result for the Cowboys. I thought Gallen was going to win it for the Sharks at the end.

    Think the notion of glory went to his head, iirc they had two more tackles to have a crack at a drop goal, that would have won them the game.

    Looking forward to the Broncos Panthers game, fancy Brisbane.

    In other news Manly coaching staff ended up in a punch up with each other outside a pub the other night.

    and the assistant coach has just been sacked. that was the closest thing to Mad Monday so far this season

    Broncos v Panthers now on Freesports or Eir Sports 2.

    Bit of a grind of a game that one. Broncos got the job done though, I doubt Storm will be too worried.

    The collision involving Corey Oates was one of the sickest I've ever seen. Scary as hell. Hope the guy is going to be okay.

    The game in general was a real war and you'd have to say it would take almost a miracle for this Broncos side to compete with a fresh and rested Storm side.

    Eels vs Cowboys coming up Saturday. That could be a lot of fun.

    Great win for the Cowboys. Taumalolo was a beast once again and Morgan was great too. I feel for Radradra being on the losing side as I thought he played well and his try was one of the best moments.

    It would be pretty incredible if the Cowboys can knock off the Roosters and make the final and I wouldn't rule it out. I give them far more of a chance than the Broncos against the Storm.

    Delighted with the win today - Coote saved a certain Radradra try - and Lowe's effort pushed them wide for a missed conversion. I think it will be close against the Roosters - much closer than the last time we played them.

    I'm amazed the Cowboys have done as well as they have, they were like an emergency ward for weeks at the end of the season. Storm are going to win the whole thing handily enough though I fear, I'd take any of the other teams over Melbourne.

    Des Hasler is not getting his contract renewed, (more accurately, the club aren't activating the extension in his contract for next year), the Bulldogs are looking for a new coach.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.



  • Registered Users Posts: 784 ✭✭✭kirk buttercup


    Hasler has been sacked. good luck to him in the future but the doggies need someone to breathe life into them

    Madge is rumoured to be belmore bound.......My Physio is Eddie Farah , Robbies brother and head physio of Souths. He said the other day the squad is pissed off at the new head coach already because he's calling them in at 7am for training

    He'd be a good coach for the Bulldogs, well he'd be a good pick for any team really.

    Thought Seibold would be keen to ease into his first head coach job but sounds like he's going all guns blazing at Souths.

    Darius Boyd and Corey Oates have been cleared to face the Storm on Friday. Does anyone give Broncos a chance to win?

    I can't see past a Storm win given they will be the fresher side.

    I can't see anything but a Storm win either, would love to be proved wrong.

    storm will win way too strong for the broncos


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,883 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    That try just before half time will kill the game I think.

    It certainly did - can't believe they held Broncos to nil - they are unbelievable.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,535 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Can't believe Broncos didn't land a glove on them. Squandered decent chances in the first half and the try before half time looked a hammer blow. I thought Broncos got some unpleasant cheap shots in during the second half. I know they were frustrated but it was poor form.

    Going to be very tough to stop Storm from winning the Grand Final as they still look like they can go up another gear. Tomorrow's game should be a lot closer I reckon.

    Nervous about facing the Roosters tomorrow - hoping for an upset - we will have to get off to
    A good start to stand a chance - I have to admit I never thought we would get this far without Thurston but Morgan has excelled and the other JT has been immense - fingers crossed but it is going to be much tougher than the Sharks game


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,883 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    For as good as the Cowboys were, the Roosters just didn't turn up.

    Would love the Cowboys to win the final now, they've been brilliant to watch, after all the injuries a few weeks back I had them written off.

    Morgan looks some player, JT who?

    Congrats Danick.

    Cheers mate - words cannot describe how happy I feel - I loved the way we didn't give up after 2 big mistakes that cost us two tries - either of those mistakes could have broken their spirits but they never moved away from their mantra of playing for the full 80 minutes - it would really polish the day off if my son or daughter was born today - due date was yesterday - wish us luck!

    Ooooh, good luck then! Look forward to hearing about little JT Danick!
