General NRL 2018 Round 5 - General Discussion

Very interesting to see the dragons capitulating a bit there with some pressure applied. Everything’s been easy sailing for them until the last 20 mins of this game. I don’t want to sound overly confident but I honestly think the Warriors are the best team in this comp. I’ve just smoked some really good weed but I’m being serious. We’ve had so much shit thrown at us and had so much go against us but we still came out on top. No other team has shown so much compusure, heart and dear I say it Faith! I’m upping my expectations from top 8 to fucking winners baby!!! I think this is our year!!
 
Dragons middle was exposed when the Rabbitohs started playing more direct and with pace. Forwards looked gassed towards the end.

The Aussie media have been talking about who have the Warriors beaten. Supposedly mostly weak opposition. Honestly who have the Dragons beaten four of the teams they've beaten this season arent in the top 8. 2 of them have a losing record Souths & Sharks. The rest have only won 50% of their games Titans, Broncos & Knights. Dragons are been overhyped.

I enjoyed that game, even with the wife switching back and forward between the commonwealth games to see what was what.

Big ups to nightingale, im defn not a fan of his, but he played outstanding on defense tonight.

GI is so over hyped. They have put him into centre, whats the bet that his next position is to the bench. Reminds me a bit of Konrad now with better hands.

I will like to add the warriors played 3 away games. 1 of them was in perth where we ABSOLUTELY SMASHED the bunnies!!

Souths need to wax GI up, chuck him in a crate and ship him off to QRL museum. He is an absolute shadow this season.

He got confused in the first half and tried the Iguana on his own 10, as Aitken eased passed him leaving him face down for the try.
 
Storm looking very average - lots of handling errors. So if Halligan commentating now surely he isn't on the main game..................... Please god no. :rolleyes: just quickly too Matulino should hve gone to English super league - turned into such an average player, don't know what the tigers saw in him to be honest.
 
The storm def have the rub of the green this game. Both teams making handling and kicking errors though. 90% completions warriors from last season would have been perfect for this game lol
 
Mutts looks like he’s had the same body for 10 years. Guy hasn’t improved physically at all. Just relies on his nature size nothing else

What a fabulous game, oh Brooks to marshall looked over for all money. lolohea looks MUD? he looks best on field alongside brooks. he just did a MAGIC play that got a 7 tackle set for the tigers, which lead to Benji scoring a field goal which might win the game. haters gonna hate.

Calling it a fabulous game is a bit of a stretch bro. It's been a pretty scrappy, error ridden game.

Credit to Lolo for that heads up play and Benji snapping that field goal though.

Can you imagine if we had Lolohea at 5/8 and Lino at halfback? We would be odds on fav to win the comp for the next 20 years in a row.

Oh well, we can only dream of reuniting the allstar combination on multimillion dollars each when the useless pricks in Shaun Johnson and green leave.

That’s a redicilous call. Lino just won his first game after like 6 starts in FG and lolo is average at best. But we win for the next 20 years :blackeye:
