General NRL 2018 Round 17 - General Discussion

At the end there I was having flashbacks to Anzac Day when the Storm just kept scoring.

They are so lethal when it all clicks. To have 6 players out with Origin and not miss a beat is pretty impressive.

Somebody surely has to snare one of Croft, Jacks or Hughes pretty soon.

Albie came on and they got on top and went bang, bang, bang, ran hard, offloads, didn’t have to do any tackling which suits him!

Played poor old Nightingale in the back row for most of the game, was horrible, must have got 5 tries down his side, good reminder that even though Ken and Manu are much bigger, converting wingers for funsies in the middle of a season is not a great idea.

Yup he's in a Storm environment with all their expectations etc.

Good for him.
i think it was more a planned idea of holding him back until he got his first run against a tiring side. Knowing Bellamy he probably was told just to cart it up with a few hard runs and get blooded as a Storm player. I would think that he wont get to many opportunities like that where he is playing a team with their 4 best forwards out and coming on in the 50th (?) minute.

In saying all that, how often do we say that when a young player gets an opportunity they need to take it by the horns and show the coach what they are capable of right off the bat. Well he did that.

Yeah the flashbacks to Anzac day were freaky.

Glad they got it out of their system....they cant do it every week....maybe two of three times a year....there is a theme there....bullying the teams on top ( Dragons Warriors respectively) at home.

Got go admire that about them....bullying the big dogs.

Wow, Dogs up by 8 with just over 2 minutes left. They lose the ball in a "1 on 1" strip with two in the tackle!? and the Raiders score two tries in the last 2 minutes to win. Fuck me, these refs are killing the game
