    Raiders just love playing in Melbourne. What a win.

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

    Anyone know is the NRL GRand Final on any of Sky Sports, BT Sports or Premier Sports in the morning? Or what UK/Irish based channel might be showing it



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    It's on Sky Sports Arena and Sky Sports Main Event. Kick-off is set to be 9:30 am our time.

    Going to hopefully wake up in time for it. Hoping it's a good one.

    Horrible feeling the Panthers will hammer the Eels. Hope I'm wrong though, it'd be nice to see Parramatta break their long stretch without a Premiership.

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

    You called it right. Utterly dominant display by the Panthers. At least the Eels managed some points on the board before the end.

    Panthers very good and the Eels choked, but they've been doing that all season, so no great surprise. Didn't make for much of a contest for the neutral though.

    Thanks, I missed it in the end as was out late last night. Had it in my head that it was a 11.30am kick off but that was out by an hour and then another hour because the clocks changed in Australia for summer time a few days back I believe. Gonna see if I can find a full match replay on Youtube later on and watch it that way

    Heading into round two of the World Cup - what do you guys think so far?



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    I think the Pacific nations will improve after another week together. Keary played well for Ireland I thought, massive game to come on Sunday against Lebanon. Win that and more than likely get out of the group.

    The usual suspects well be there or there abouts. Attendance at the games very meh, but poorly advertised and ticketed.

    The Sky deal was a disaster for Rugby League in England.

    Rugby Union went down a similar road in Australia.

    The Nrl will have to invest in England and France.

    Addo Carr making Freddie look silly since his hat trick before game 2 in origin. If Aus win he has to be in pole position to win player of the tournament.

    Caught the highlights for Eels vs Storm and looked like an exciting game. Who do we think is winning this season? Panthers to do three in a row? I'll go for the Sharks.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    The One NZ Warriors, it's our year!


    Great to have the NRL back, Storm look strong as usual in (supposedly) Bellamy's last season. If by some bizarre happening Warriors don't win the lot it would be nice for Sharks or someone else other than Panthers or Storm.

    Amazing win for the Dolphins over the Roosters this morning, brilliant way to start their NRL journey.

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



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Another exciting win for them. They've been a breath of fresh air.

    It's been a good start to the season in general. Lots of drama.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Yeah it's been an enjoyable start, Dogs beating the Storm was a bit of a surprise, Roosters beat the Warriors (who only had 1 left on the interchange for half the game) but very unconvincingly, Broncos and Cowboys were in a great tussle this round too. Hopefully it'll be wide open this year.

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



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Really enjoyed the 'Battle of Brisbane' the other day. Great finish to the game, even though I was rooting for the Dolphins.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Season has started well, 'phins a worthy edition to the League. Blow outs haven't started yet, so lots of close games which is always good.


    Warriors going well this year too. Deserved the win, although the game winning try should have been pulled back for obstruction. (I'll take it though!)

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



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    2 good games today. Impressive victory for the Warriors.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Right gambling fans. Paddy Power have The Dolphins at Evens with +12 against the Bunnies next week. Am I missing something or is that a good a bet as I think it is? Well I've already stuck a few quid on it anyway but seems very generous, especially when they're only giving the Tigers 10/11 with 12+ against the Eels.

    It was all looking so good for my bet on the Dolphins......... then it wasn't.

  • Registered Users Posts: 168 ✭✭timothydec77


    The Dolphins have been a successful expansion team on the field so far.



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Looking forward to the first State of Origin opener. The physicality last year was immense.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Not sure it was quite as intense as last year but good game none the less. Good start for the Maroons too. Might treat myself to a knock off QLD jersey from China.

  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Great win for the Knights today.

    Hard to bet against the Panthers winning the lot again when it's all said and done but I hope there will be a surprise.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Broncos or Panthers do look ahead of everyone else. Warriors might well get bounced out by the Knights which will be a bit of a disappointing end to a very good season. They've looked pretty ordinary for the last few weeks though tbh.


    If Knights do beat the Warriors I'd love for them to go on and win it.

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



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Warriors really turned up, fantastic performance and I think the Knights just looked a bit tired. To even make the finals from where they were was an achievement though.

    Still can't see past a Panthers/Broncos final but never say never. Up the Wahs 😂

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



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,590 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Only caught the highlights but looked a great atmosphere. Looking forward to next week's games.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,989 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Good luck to the Broncos in the final, great season comes to an end for the Warriors. Brisbane clearly the better team and were likely going to win anyway, but that forward pass try decision by the officials killed the Warriors stone dead at a time where they had the merest of sniffs.

    Yeah the Broncos worthy winners but that forward pass left a sour taste.

    I'd like to see a different champion crowned but the Broncos will need the game of their lives.
