General NRL 2018 Round 9 - General Discussion

I didnt say this before but ill say it now. I reckon we would have beaten the Storm last week had the key players been available. They are missing Cronk and Harris.
Thats what took them so long to get going. I never doubted they would turn into GF favs at sportsbet, hence my prediction of them beating us after they walloped a team 40-10 the weekend before.

It was just a freaky first half, they would have taken the skin off any team. We were even stevens second half.

Im not worried, if we play them at home and we are full strength my prediction from first game will swing to us winning that game.

This Dragons game is just a poor performance after a few weeks of brilliance. It happens to all the teams.

I still rate the storm the team to beat not the Dragons. I know that sounds strange after the Dragons have now done them twice. But I dont have faith in Dragons coach when it comes time to the finals.

Moses, Keary and Bird are hardly putting their hands up for selection.

Pearce and Cleary are injured. Although there is talk coming out of Penrith that Cleary might be ready to go as early as round 11.

Green is the 2nd best acting halve that NSW have, behind Maloney.

I'm a bit conflicted. I would like to see Green get an opportunity to play SOO as it's the top representative accolade he'll likely receive. His current form warrants selection. It wouldn't surprise me if it's on his wish list of things, next to winning a premiership with the Warriors ;)

Mate, you're missing the favourite. Maloney is 6 for NSW this year. And Reynolds for 7. You heard it here
 
We'll see. I think your eye patch is clouding your judgement lol . On ya! He's a good bloke. Deserves it if he does. But Maloney has more potential to beat QLD.

You might be right ;)

If we don't KO this Roosters pack again next week, I will be seriously dissapointed. They really are mediocre.

Hope this game goes to golden point and they beat eachother to a pulp, with Roosters just winning to give them some false confidence.

He copped a back fist to the nuts from Jeremy Latimore....must have been a pay off from his Warriors mates after the fifty point belting.

Official record says accidental.

Had to laugh, was at the game and saw Cam on his haunches my (female) mate was like “what’s wrong, hurt ankle” was like nonono that’s a pain Everyman understands-nut shot!
Turns out I was right :D

So funny you mention your female mate....gotta walk a fine line here for risk of sexism but girls dont get wot happens with a nut shot....unless you can convince them it is like a quick burst of Labor pains without the promise of creating life.....

And then a Woman will point out ' 36 hours' and you know you got no come back....arguments about less nerve endings and different physiology.....starts to sound like you are whining....

Having come close to death 24 times with Man Flu I concede defeat to the Terminators in frocks.
