its interesting that the 3 teams left are the 3 teams dominated by the Queensland legends of the last 10 years, Thaiday, Hodges, Parker, Cronk, Smith, Thurston, Scott (only guys missing are Inglis and Slater)
He signs with us they hate him, he goes on a serious run of killer form and they love him. They get knocked out of the finals and they hate him. Good decision to come home Roger we usually just blame the coach.
They went nuts when he first signed screaming about how they developed him, a bit rich. His form didn't turn to shit after he signed the big contract like some of the Roosters fans thought would happen.
Hell of a turn around with Brisbane since Bennett returned. Similar quick success to his stint at the Dragons.
Good effort for the Storm to get this far without Slater for the majority of the season and with their aging superstars some of the experts at different times of the year were tipping them to miss the finals.
Storm didn't seem like they had much points in them. The try like Cronk scored playing straight close to the line seemed like their best option. The Cowboys seemed to be able to find points with nice plays or guile through Thurston.
Good effort by the Cowboys this year. What as it? lost their first 3 games, then won in golden point before winning against us in the last minute. Then there were a lot of big comebacks in a winning streak.
Good performance off the back of their big forwards then out to Thurston.
Can't wait for next week pretty interesting Grand Final two teams that come to play.
