Good work ref and touchies

Blows for the 20 tap, the eels go a metre offside, the Bronco then taps it and everything is cool and good

But really Brisbane is utilising the old Tigers "How to hold ball" playbook. What is it, 10 incomplete?

Broncos completely the architects of their own failure. Couldn't hold the ball for most of the game, and couldn't stop giving away needless repeat sets and penalties.

there's a certain depth in things like "The fucken dealership cross threaded my bash plate bolts and hit em with the rattle gun, it was an absolute cunt of a job to get them off again" that you just don't get with other words.



Yep. The Eels are pretty good but we sealed the deal with a bunch of dropped ball and silly errors. Hoping as the season goes on they'll come good, that one looked like a round 1 game. Also whoever has us over the next few weeks will be lucky, with Fifita (knee, TBA), Glenn (hospitalised at half time), TPJ (suspended for the nth time) and Hoppa (no good) all busted or gone the second row is a massive weak spot at the moment.

It's about finding that next group of core players we can win with in the next 6, 8, 10 years. Let's face it, it's hard for 20-, 21-, 22-year-olds to lead an NHL team. Look at the playoffs.

It seems like the crowd noise is being managed. There wouldn't be a shortage of audio engineers looking for work right now.

The Broncos played poorly. Even if they were equally skillful compared to the eels their possession was almost 35% and it felt like most of the game was in their half. I still enjoyed the game though.

It's mindboggling how much of their cap is just being utterly wasted. Taylor, Cartwright, Peachey, Boyd, Peats, Proctor, James, Roberts.... that's like 75% of their cap spent on poo.

Kearney's obsessive focus on completion rate to the exclusion of trying to do anything at all with the ball may turn out to be effective in the new NRL. Hard to say though because the Dragons have been atrocious.

Korbin Sims yeah, it was a sweet kick too. Claimed he never saw it in a post match interview but he had that ball lined up several strides away.

If it makes you feel any better they lost 19 games in a row after that.
