Cant win em all.



Still, he was just over excited, i dont know if it bwas because both his brothers were playing or he was trying to impress James Graham as to what a hard man he is, but he does need to settle down a bit but i suppose you cant put an old head on young shoulders, he needs to take a leaf out of Crockers book, he was the same but he got a bit older & now he just does his job & doesnt say boo

He lifted his arms when he ran into Graham, started a fight & got penalised, if he'd been sin binned it would have been ****ing nice & then he gave one away when he was marker with hands in the ruck, i'll have to have a look at the game again, you miss a lot of shit out at the game

Still, we could have won it, if Farrell had scored it was ours & he missed it by the proverbial split hair, i suppose we've had a bit of luck, sometimes it goes against you, might be the nkick up the acher they needed, they're not as good as everyones been saying & theres a shitload of work to do if they want to end up top four, or top eight for that matter

John sutton is the weak link in that side. Games like that, he goes missing. As gus said...thats why he hasnt played origin and why souths havent been in finals. I reckon they can still get to top 4 with him, but if they had a goid 5/8, they just about win the whole thing.

Yeah, the moment probably got to him a bit.
I also went to the game and had to watch the replay just to see why the Dogs player got penalized when they made that break. I had no idea why, and neither did anyone else near me in the crowd. After seeing the replay they said it was because a player recieved the ball from offside which is probably fair enough.

The Dogs are a good side, and we done well to hang with them for the full 80. We'll be there come September.

I know Suttons a fan favorite to hate on, but you really cant blame him for the loss last night. He's not a traditional 5/8 and you'll never see him weave in and out of defenders like you would Marshall, etc. He had a solid game actually.
The game was lost with our handling. Dogs handling was superb given the conditions. I reckon and hope McGuire blasts Crocker for his very lazy attemopt at catching a chip which resulted in a Barba try.

Good game though. Similar to their last encounter.

Lets get on the yellow and blue glory bus this afternoon.

edit: Err, wrong day. Knights and Brisbane today, and I refuse to step foot in any one of those vehicles.

Ahhh shucks Pecks. Sounds like you put a bet on as well.

They got the penalty because Reynolds was floating on your 40m line returning to his side, when they made the break he just turned around and jumped in to get the ball passed to him and got themselves the penalty. Souths had that in the bag but the young winger got too excited and ****ed it.

I love seeing any Bennett team go to shit and Knights certainly are going to shit.

Nah, no betting from me. I just want to see teke get his bet up so I can hit him up for some cash.

Wow. How crazy is the NRL. Knights let in 50 yet probably outplayed the Bronx for a good 30-35 minutes. It used to be the case that if you conceded 50, you were miserable and got outplayed for the whole match. If Knights didnt turn it on for at least 30 or so minutes or played a team that wanted to go in for the kill, I wonder how many they could have actually conceded.

How many times has a Wayne Bennett coached team not made the semi finals?

Yeah willie has been playing well above all the other Knights forwards in the last 2 weeks. He knows the standard that needs to be met, but the others are struggling

Pretty Solid NSW Squad imo.

I think they Maroons will play alot better in the next game but could be outplayed.

I thought the halves and the backs for Souths during the game were pretty good. I will say the forwards looked out on there feet. Taylor was good but everyone else was average.

Bulldogs kept running out of there own 20 and they were gaining decent meters Pecks. I remember seeing Barba tackled on the 1 meter line twice next thing Bulldogs forwards had them back at the half way line on the 4th tackle.

I feel it was lost there not enough pressure in there own half.
