    I'm going to go as far to say that the Bunker and the corner post are the best rules changes league has made.

    Yeah. A mate had a free bet and wanted a Cowboys tigers multi and I tipped her into tigers 13+ and Cowboys 1-12 so I might get a few free beers at this rate.

    Naiqama was going to be my pick for player of the game. Embarassed

    That is one of the single dumbest things I've seen on a field.

    Naiqama puts pressure on Manu who spills the ball backwards gets the ball two metres from the line and passes to an unmarked Jeff Robson

    Quality commentary from Vossy "how could you confuse Jeff Robson with anyone, Jeff Robson is 60 years of age!"

    I think at this stage warriors were tilting, getting blown off the park like that early does things mentally . The break may help stem the flow but the big test will be how they start the next game.

    Simona holding up Ayshford twice. Showing how good he is defensively.

    lol!
    Vossy is such a good commentator, nine have got nothing on him. Dude genuinely loves rugby league ( you can tell by his tweets, even watches the SL in his spare time) and his commentary always has clever little quips like this. Don't always agree with him but do always enjoy his commentary, hope he does a lot of Raiders games.

    I absolutely hated him on 9. Things you may have missed on the footy show made me hate him, he was so forced in his humour. When he's calling the footy he's on the best he's so genuine about it all which is what you want. He doesn't push an agenda and he knows the players. Plus his commentary in rugby league 2 is used in my everyday vocabulary

    Would he have held up Hurrel you think? On that topic, I'm really not sold on Kata, he's strong no doubt but eh what else (not that I'm all that impressed with any of their options there though tbh).

    Yeah that's fair, definitely not great on the footy show (but then again, that whole show is shit). Much better when its all natural rather than forced as you put it.

    Damn nice wheels on Simona, didn't think RTS would be caught once he got in the clear there.

    Simona with speed to burn, chasing down RTS from the other side of the field.
