    Cowboys cant rely on a dropped ball to win this game. Looks like a fair game so far.

    Adam Cuthbertson. What an amazing offloader he's been since joining Super League, after showing none of that in the NRL. Thought it might be because of the level of opposition but he's popped out 6 in 30 minutes against the Cowboys, including a try assist.

    Great game so far, Leeds really digging in with all their injuries! Great effort against a full strength NQ

    Targeting the kid Ash Handley all game, as you would. If Briscoe is out there no way is that try happening. Shame Leeds have so many injuries.

    Ah well. Leeds did well in the first half but left their starters out far too long because squad injuries meant there was no depth on the bench. And now everyone is shattered.

    And that folks sees an end to what is a stunning reminder of the difference in class between the competitions.

    That being said, how good was the biff !!!!!

    Tamou copped it on the chin and went down like a sack of shit.

    good to see a slap get the treatment it deserves


    the gap is widening, i read earlier in the week that our salary cap is now more then double there's, our players are generally much better anyways but now they're not getting guys like Ali Lauitiiti early in their career and nrl clubs are able to bring over guys like graham, burgess etc just means the difference between the comps is at an all time high.

    the former NRL players in ESL now are either guys a year or 2 away from retirement or fringe blokes, you used to be able to find heaps of nrl players over there that were still quality

    Yep - thankfully Bennett is generously taking it upon himself to try and close the gap.

    As for Tamou, this incident is the first indication that the bloke may actually be a genuine NSWelshman.
