Titans vs Penrith tomorra.

Panthers team are so different i don't recognize any of them.Adding two black dudes on the squad seems to have made the Rif a better football team instantly. I wont be surprise if they pull an upset tomorra!! But as always go Titans. Big forward pack were tested against Manly last week.It was brutal at times but they held on just. hehehe

It's a game you guys should win. we should have put them to the sword last weekend, but they somehow managed to make a game of it. I think the heat got to us a bit last week.

Sharks/Dragons tonight. Cant see anything other than a solid Sharks win.

Most of those are the back end of the season cept that double header coming in at second place.

I think it may have been a NSW regular season record crowd for a single fixture match, or at least the biggest since the 60's or so.
It looked great on tv also. Very rarely does ANZ look good on tv, even with 35k it still look fairly empty.

I'm starting to think Reynolds would be the best 7 for origin. His ability to earn a repeat set when on the oppositions line is unsurpassed, and that'd be vital in origin. From memory, Pearce didn't force one repeat set in 3 origin games last season. Clearly Daley is only going for him because he's a ***** and doesn't want to upset his friend Wayne Pearce. I'd actually sack Daley now if I was in charge.

Is Sam Burgess the best forward in the NRL right now?

Not really

Going over the last few years he's been injured a lot, he's started this year very well, if he can maintain his form for a sustained period he'll be amongst the best

He's up around there for sure, and George is having a top year also. He's a beast and once he gets used to the nrl and can handle more game time, he'll be a marquee forward. Already done more for Souths than his brother Luke.

Im thinking playing both Reynolds at the halves would be the very best option.

Yes, but it will never happen. Pearce could be a quadriplegic and they will still play him in the origin side.

Sutton also wouldn't look out of place in a NSW jersey. He's been in ends this season. He's also got stronger. Sometimes he takes 2 or 3 forwards with him, and for a second I think in watching Teo.

Nah, I'm not sold on the cunt yet. He had a solid first few games last season and then coasted for a while. He has a habit of just riding the waves in his games.
