    Obviously but playing it at a suburban ground with shit public transport options and next to no parking is ridiculous, if it was at ANZ i'd have made the effort to go.

    Someone at Fox has deadest had a serious word to Anasta about his Tiger hating ways. He was so complimentary and positive for the entire 80 that it became very obvious very quickly.

    Who would have thought that Corey Thompson would come into the side and play more like Tedesco than Tedesco is.

    Deadset, he is the form fullback for NSW this year

    Yeah he's doing well. The whole team played well last night after 3 weeks of inept footy, especially last week. Can't fault their effort this week and much prefer Fonua then Naqaima in the centres.

    13,000 supporters at the ground last night surprised my considering it was a cold Thursday night, hats off to the die-hards

    Anasta is the most over rated hack to ever play the game, voted by the players.

    The bloke is a suckhole

    Tedesco has to play structured footy now, something that doesn't suit his style of play, most probably doesn't leave the Eastern suburbs now either the latte sipping douchebag

    Corey Thompson has been rock solid for us, Ivan has got the best out of him.

    The longer the season goes the closer the gap between Teddy & Thomo gets.

    But if you're comparing Thompo to Hayne he's definitely out performed him for the last 18 months.

    Ben Cousins became a junkie, what's Hayne's excuse to get so shit ?

    Wouldn't surprise me. You see him at the end of the game congratulating team mates. Captain of the 6 captains. Players really seem to respond to him.

    He has certainly won a lot of individual awards and through about 1 season (total) of his career he has been just about the most talented individual player that the game has ever seen, no one can dispute that. That individual talent nearly got his side a GF win.

    You also cant dispute that he not a team player, doesnt make players around him better, has a shit work ethic, and has had very minimal team success throughout his career.

    You don't take a team to a GF or to Origin glory without lifting those around you, but I'll concede all other points.

    So freakin annoying, could easily have and should have been the best ever. More naturally gifted than any player I've ever seen. Such a wasted talent.

    Thompson will spend time in reserve grade this year, Hayne won't.
