General NRL 2018 Round 23 - General Discussion

Should see Kikau and May scratched for next weeks game against the Warriors. Pretty sure Curtis Scott got suspended for more than one game earlier in the season for throwing a punch.
Yeah but Curtis Scott only got two games for a deadset haymaker that broke Walker's eye socket.
Kikau deserves one match based on the Scott suspension, but wouldn't be suprised if May doesnt miss any games.

Damn it would of been good if the Dragons lost to increase our chances of climbing up a few places. Oh well that makes the Tigers chances of making the 8 a whole lot harder.

The Tigers looked good to start but couldn't get the last pass. Watching them closely it is the Robbie and Benji show. One of the criticisms of Farah when he left was he was dominating over Brooks and Moses. You watch their sets and its Farah to Marshall, Farah to forward, Farah to Marshall, Farah dummy to Brooks and run.

Brooks hardly got any decent ball. A lot of the time when they had a set in the opposition 20 he either didn't get the ball or got it on the last as he was the only option. The other part to that was Brooks was in awkward positions a lot of the time especially in support play.

On another note, Tigers game reminded me of Warriors games in the past. How many times have we been on the edge of the 8 in past years only to show no energy in must-win games, ruling us out of top 8 contention (Dragons R26 2013, Panthers R26 2014, Tigers R25 2016). Good for us to be on the other side of things this year.

Don’t worry Blocker. You’ll understand the rules one day.
He's as thick as two planks. Last night DCE got cut down he says it was a wonderful tackle. They show the replay of Proctor cutting DCE down if anything Taylor or whoever the other Titans player was that was close just put his arms on him when he was on the ground.

Blocker "Proctor was there to" Cause he was there he made the tackle.o_O

Ennis really shouldn't be allowed to commentate Sharks games. His bias comes out at every opportunity
That seems to be a common theme throughout the competition. Let's get guys to commentate on their old club as much as possible. Ok Ennis has been around a bit but we had Parker doing Broncos games only to find out he was also doing some coaching there as well.

We have already had one from Ennis tonight. Gallen stops in the line, where is he supposed to go through to the dead ball line. No but another 2-3 metres probably would of been enough.

The interests of the conflicts are not a high priority for the Aussies it seems.
