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.



Now we just need the Raiders to win to round out the day.

Man I love seeing teams give it to the Storm. Kinda sucks how Cam Smith turned into an absolute grub the day he stopped playing for QLD.

This game I think is the litmus for the 6 again rule and I'm really glad the ref hasn't catted out and let Melbourne do their usual poo poo.

If it remains consistent week to week could be a bit of a changing of the guard.

Time was belly ache would piss and moan to the press and his team would get away with murder.

The problem is the usual NRL response is to go hard at this sort of rule for 2-3 weeks and then just regress. Hopefully it sticks.

Our review identified changes needed to be made and, in Stephen, we have a coach who has a reputation for demanding the highest standards.

Holy poo poo Raiders. They might be legit. Can't believe the defense and some of the try-savers Particularly Tapines.

And that try on the siren, just dunking on the storm.

Adam is a wonderful example of how a player should go about his business in the NRL


Warriors win, Sharks lose, Storm lose.

Hopefully Panthers Knights and Eagles Dogs are decent affairs.

Not sure on the first due to Cleary's tik tok adventure. Eagles should do the Dogs.

No ponga and no cleary makes it a bit of a wash in terms of lost firepower imo. I'm also real interested in getting a look at Burton apparently he wasn't far off taking the starting spot partnering cleary during the off season. I guess we'll find out if that was the usual bullshit fluff or if he's a player.
