How much of a dick is Roberts? cheap shot on Oates - these guys must be part brain dead, important games like this and they do dumb shyte like that, aka Dylan Brown.

Maybe but also how nice would it be to have players on a team that actually fired up
Theres a difference being fired up, don't have a problem with that but then there's cheap shots like Roberts did & Brown and Turpin the week before. Oates isn't a grub, no need to elbow him in he temple.

Was interesting how Roberts and Su'a reacted toward their former team mates. They were either just amped up for their side or perhaps didn't get on with certain players when at the broncos. Always wondered how all those egos coincide but maybe they don't.

...whilst lying on the ground prone. I thought he was very lucky not to be sent off for the game, which would have changed the game massively. Very interested in the judiciary decision here.

Su'a was trying to assert himself in the tackle and went too hard. Roberts was akin to a king hit from behind on the night club strip.

I was surprised a send off wasn't mentioned as a possibility for the Roberts one, shows how far things have gone to barely even considering a send off. In the 90's after a bad head high tackle the ball carrier would still be on the ground, barely time for a replay and the ref is pointing to the sideline. To much money involved now and to much scrutiny on the refs decisions now that if they send someone off and its not as bad as initially thought they will get hammered all week. A shame as player safety and enforcing the rules should be the priority.

The Roberts shot was barely mentioned until Andy Rammond on the sideline brought it up. They were sorting out if the try should be awarded first but none of the main commentary team mentioned that there would be another incident to look at. They didn't mention it when it first happened either so I was beginning to think it would of been brushed over like it didn't happen.

Benji Marshall was superstar game breaker early in his career. Had a period where he looked past it. But now he seems to be aging like a fine wine.

A fantastic kick to setup a try.

Tigers 30-0 at half time. Could be a long few weeks for the Knights now that Brown has announced he is leaving.

Jaysus, i know we get shafted but man alive Canberra getting bullshit penalties against them
and that Manly try was from an offside position for sure..and they didn't even check it. Isn't CNK the goods though.

Yip, although Leilua twice has been in with his knees, cost his team an 8 point try. Didn't recognise CNK at first, had the hair chopped. Hoping Canberra win, exciting game though.

If CNK is an example of our excellent recruiting policy my name is Mount Wellington.
