    Anyone else find the NRL website is geoblocking highlights? When I go to check them out I get a message saying 'SAS Geo Error - This video is not authorized in your location.'

    Never had this happen before.

    That's weird because they worked this morning, but aren't working now. Hopefully just a glitch, otherwise they're making it harder and harder for people to follow the game without ponying up for their streaming service. Stupid move.

    Apparently you can still watch via the NRL Facebook page if you're on that, or just use a vpn, still a pain in the arse though.

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

    Eels get their first away win since 2017. Reading the reports sounds like Penrith just couldn't hold the ball and complete their sets.

    Raiders nilled the Titans.

    Still can't access highlights on their website and it appears from looking at Twitter this is happening elsewhere. Must be a new site policy.

    From what I gather, Sky are showing a highlights show "Try Time" on Wednesday nights - only a day before the next round of games start. That's a bit like a football fan having to wait until Friday night to watch Match of the Day highlights of games from the previous weekend.

    Such a backwards move in terms of getting people outside Australia interested in NRL games.

    Good win for the Bunnies, second best in the first half, but Sam Burgess was on fire in the second half.

    Storm on their way to a comfortable win over the Raiders, which is nice.

    Warriors comfortably hammered by Tigers.

    Brilliant game this morning, Dragons edged out the Broncos by a point.

    Up and down game for the dragons. A good tough win might spark them. Reports Widdops season might be over. Shame if it is his last game for Saints always liked him.

    I read his best case scenario 3 to 6 weeks out , worse case 3 to 6 months, as you say, effectively the end of his NRL career.

    Enjoyable game between the Raiders and the Knights. Eels and Roosters was good until Sydney pulled away, got a bit one sided then.

    Wooden spoon already looking like the only thing the Warriors will be playing for this year. Battered by Manly.

    What a second half by Sharks so far, tackling, set completion excellent, kick chase superb, absolutely brilliant - good signs for future. Cut out the mistakes that riddled the first half and the previous two games.

    Yeah they were excellent. All one sided games in the end today, Storm hammered the Panthers.

    good round . finally (for me) the doggies got it together , its going to be a long process to rebuild that team. Souths and Storm look the early front runners and look pretty good wouldn't be too surprised if either of them won it this year . Mal Manninga reckons titans to be premiers haha ok Mal ill take one of whatever you're having

    Roosters thumped the Broncos. Lot of very one sided games so far this season.

    Backed Broncos +4....just missed out :rolleyes:

    Squeaky bum time for the Warriors. Lead down to ten over the Titans, 15 minutes left.

    Edit: Back to 16 point lead, should be comfortable now.

    Cowboys lose again - it looks like it's going to be a tough season for us.

    Golden point win for the dragons. Played well too. I agree Danick I think the cowboys might struggle this year.


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


    Great game between the Warriors and the Bunnies. Going to finish up with the wrong score (from my perspective) but a good fun watch. Useless defence aplenty.

    Warriors did what they do best, fcuk up a winning position in fine style.

    Good win for the dragons. Hunt was on fire. Good to see him play well he can be very up and down.

    bulldogs suck :(. They were terrible and I don't see it getting any better anytime soon a lot of fans not happy around belmore .


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


    I think there is going to be four or five teams well adrift at the bottom this year, and the play off places sewn up way earlier than last season.

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


    Some game between the Storm and Roosters. Brilliant come-back from Melbourne to be 20 nil down to level it up but maybe it makes it more sickening to lose to the drop goal.

    Great game anyway.

    Brilliant game yesterday. the NRL is restoring my faith in Rugby League...Cricket has taken over as my favourite sport the past couple of years but RL has come roaring back and may snatch it back !


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


    In a surprise to no one Warriors lose again. RTS must wonder why he bothers.

    Warriors must be a fans worst nightmare. Close win by Saints and Hunt is still looking good. I'd say Hasler still has steam coming out his ears.

    Another Warriors loss, played pretty well tbf. Coach still needs the boot though.

    Bunnies had some goal line defence today against the Panthers. Thought they could have given away a couple more penalties but held their line very well.
