i dont remember how long its been since i heard a commentator rip into a ref like that. "his eyes must be painted on". "He should put himself in the bin". Thats the sort of thing you hear fans in the stands, like me yelling

Top 2 teams looking really vulnerable all of a sudden. Melbourne and Souths both on 2 game losing streaks. If the Roosters get the wobbles as well, maybe dark horse sides like us or the Sharks may have a real shot this year.

What the Broncos win showed is the close margins in this comp. The eight is nearly finalised. Wests are an outside cjance.

The key to success will be defence. I can see no reason why our blokes cant continue their recent standards.

With the ball completions and field position will be key. Once again we have the spine to achieve that snd the fire power to get across the line.

IMO for all teams injuries will have a big effect. If our guys stay injury free and dont stray from the fundamentals they can go a long way.

I have said before, it's so close any one of a few teams could win on any given day. Down to form and fitness. Main thing atm is to beat the dogs

its a pretty amazing season, when you look at the top 8 and all teams are within 2 games of each other, most within 1 game.

From a Warriors point of view a Broncos loss would of been nice.

Some nicely worked tries early from the Broncos with the cut out passes from Boyd. Also Milford's one in the first half through the middle.

Enjoyed the game. The scoring was a bit whack 18-0, 18-18 so another 18 unanswered points. Then 32-18 so another 14 unanswered. We score a couple of times, you score a couple of times, we score a couple of times. The old EA Sports rugby games from the 90's used to be like that. You could waste someone who has hardly played, the game would even up for them and the guy your playing would say "I'm getting the hang of this now" before it would go back to normal and you'd smash them again.

The competition is corrupt.

The Broncos Bunker call that there was no contact was pure and simple corruption.

The Broncos are well known for getting a free ride at home.

The NRL needs them, the crowds, the Queensland presence in the competition.

May we not go near them if we make it into the finals.

The Same was true of the Rabbitohs in 2014, marketed as the pride of the league, cleanest team in the comp...wot a farking joke.

Billy Slater Man of series is more viral now than Chuck Norris.

Australia is a corrupt country, always has been it is in their DNA....Darren Lokyer MOM in worlld cup final...Kiwi suspensions on the eve of tests...they are fucken cheats.

The entire competition knows that their is serious Jiggery Pokery going on at the Roosters.

The Cap has been rorted through a rich man using money to exploit an intentional loop whole.

TPA's need to go.

These sound like the ramblings of a deranged lunatic, but I'm inclined to agree with every word. Which means either I am a deranged lunatic as well or the NRL has become a farce, unfortunately for me I think it is both.

I get the feeling the Sharks will be undone in one of their three Banana Skin games.

One of either Manly - Dogs - or Cows will drop them as a side effect of playing in the avoid the wooded spoon comp.

Unfortunately I have the same fear for us...the side I am least worried about is the Pamfers....Dogs and Raiders bother me...especially the Raiders.

Win all three and I think we are a great chance.
