A thread for all 2018 Round 9 team lists, discussions, news and views. Serves as a team list thread and game day discussion for all games through the week (besides the Warriors one of course :) ).

Feel free to add team lists as they become available people. Thank you...

Forans lateral defence non existent last night. Plays like he's on crutches. The Dogs hung in there but wasn't overly impressed with the Broncs. They could have quite easily lost. The knock on interpretation rule has me fucked

Definitely wish last nights Broncs was the one that showed up to play us

Awesome first half for the Knights Rabbitohs game. Love watching Kalyn Ponga. Fast replacing Latrell Mitchell as my favourite player to watch...

Ill pull my hear out if the Knights win another 2 point game and move to 3rd with -58 for and against. Surely the Rabbits wont drop the bundle here. Knights squeaking through the easiest draw in the history of the NRL. Dont get me wrong Im happy they have improved, but they should not be close to the 8. I expect bu round 12 they wont be.
 
I think thats the game.

Dragons v Storm, anyone else looking forward to that game? I think the Storm will do identically what the Warriors did. I think im giving up on manly making the 8. sportsbet still has roosters 2nd for the GF. if they knock off manly, that should see knights and broncos out of the 8.

2 of my best mates are a Dragons and a storm fan so will be heading to my first non-warriors NRL game with them on sun, not sure who to go for (probably storm)

Have Rabbitohs gotten better since they played us or are the knights punching above themselves last few rounds?
Hard to gauge quality of opposition Broncs lucky to beat a terrible Dogs team last night but easily accounted for us for example

Both. Rabbits have a quality team and have been massively under achieving. Whilst the knights have a much better team this year, they have an easy draw and only scraping through half their wins. Hard to read to much into it. Have to focus on the roosters first anyway which could be there turning point, they scraping through, but sportsbet had them 2nd, currently $8 for the GF, Storm $4.50, dragons $5, roosters $8, warriors $12. at least we getting some respect from the punters, but boy does it swing when we win lol
 
Im enjoying this Cowboys, keep it going, we need that Penrith for and against zapped and for them to get a loss. They looking very flat Penrith so far. Some offloading on nth qld try line but no changing of angles or trickery.
