    i think you're letting a small recent sample fool you there dip


    last year he played 25 games averaging 61 minutes, never playing less then 50


    he got concussed early against the raiders and had the nerve injury in the sharks game that saw him off early and missed last game because of it but has played the other 10 games averaging 58 minutes

    realistically we're talking about the same injury that cost him the back end of the chooks game and he probably shouldn't have played the sharks game but i think its ridiculous to think that one injury means we should move on from one of our few players doing their job

    Yeah maybe. I didn't know why he missed the weekend's game and assumed it might have been due to a head knock. Agree that right now Graham's injuries are not even on page 1 of Des' priority list of "things that we have to fix".

    Everyone loves James Graham as a player, but with the matches he misses or goes off early, perhaps the Bulldogs are doing the right thing if the rumours of him being shopped around since the Woods signing. If you lose a prop after 15 minutes, gee it seems to be hard to win games these days.

    We lost the great man Mannah and Vave ahead of our game on the weekend and got the chocolates.

    And it was a good win for sure. I think it's harder to win after losing a player after 20 minutes than before the match altogether. Unless it's a back-rower, and that's because that can be covered with most backrowers able to be able to play close to 80.

    Winning after losing a winger (Hoffman) was a great effort by you guys.

    Absolutely agree. Loose them in warm up and you can replace them.

    We lost Hoffman, and Pritchard and Gower, albeit late, during the game.

    I thought we were gone for all money when warriors drew close, so was pumped we stayed tough and hung on. Gee Nathan Brown was epic, wasn't fussed when we signed him but he has been top shelf and seems to have ditched the shit.

    Does it even count when it's against the Warriors? Wink

    Scored one, line break assist for the other, then try assisted two tries in two minutes for the win. Still, it was only the Raiders. I'd like to see him do it for a little longer, still, can't ask a whole lot more than 2 MOTM performances in 2 games.

    Moylan?
    100% should be in the side instead of pearce. Played well there in game 3 last year. Been great in his 2 starts there this year.
    The guy is awesome.

    Moylan was amazing at the end of that raiders game, i'm not his biggest fan but that was a moment where his class showed, a full season like this @ 6 and i'm gonna sway pretty quickly

    This hype about Hess is all well and good - but fuck me dead Angus Crighton is doing just as good a job as him if not better, and he does it for 80 mins a game.

    He is fucking awesome.

    Would love for newcastle to chase him and offer him the cash they gave Guerra.

    Really enjoying watching him play this season.

    Laughing According to Bunnies website Crichton was born in Temora, played Yawnion for The Scots College in Sydney and his junior club is listed as the Young Cherrypickers.  All of which are in Queerzland.

    Get a load of you guys. Play Steve Rogers in the very first Origin and still try to pretend NSW didn't invent dubious eligibility selections.
