    Good win by spoon favs over Premiership favs. Kudos! Might have firmed for a top 14 finish. Big Qs over the Roosters or first week jitters????

    def first week jitters IMO.
    If ted doesnt drop that try towards the start of the game - IMO - roosters go on to win.
    But he did, and the tigers defended well. Good on them! Was pretty exciting

    We've started like this the last few years and gone nowhere.

    Differences over those years though may be:
    a) this year it's against the 2 Premiership favourites;
    b) our young blokes and new recruits are taking front and centre;
    c) it has been our defence that got us home, as opposed to razzle dazzle attack;
    d) early days but we may have some Props who have a balance between mongrel and self control;
    e) with all due respect to his past brilliance as an ad lib footballer, Benji finally looks comfortable controlling a game;
    f) the way the above points and the length of each sentence allow the post to shape the whole paragraph like it is a set of steps...



    I will however be putting some decent coin on the Broncs to win next week.  I win no matter what the result Very Happy

    Attack hasn't been there but it will come once Lolohea, Reynolds,and Liddle come back, defence has been great

    Yep, easier for attack to come on during a season then improve defence markedly. And as you say, technically 3/4 of our first choice spine are out. I mentioned it in pre season on the Fantasy pages about Reynolds slotting in at Hooker. Hard to bench Benji at the minute. Reynolds comes back on the bench and if we are still winning stays that way and spells Liddle. Although Reynolds at starting 9 and Godinet coming off the bench sounds alright, he was very impressive in attack in the trials coming on fresh.

    Hopefully ET's hammy is alright. Bloke is a trooper.

    Lolohea back vs Broncos. Reynolds and Liddle R4 according to the daily telegraph

    They will drop MWZ if that's the case, surely you can't drop Nofo after that performance, dead set like a extra forward and always hard to tackle

    with the way they have been defending, you wouldnt even consider adding reynolds to the back line IMO. I would be putting him at hooker / 14 for sure.

    Absolutely, the way Marshall has steered the team around, Reynolds has to be number 14 when he comes back

    If Reynolds is back, he goes to 1/2, Brooks to hooker. Our completions this year are over 80%.We will be hard to beat.

    Wow, ripped off tonight. No way was Godinet not square, if anything, the play the ball was sideways. Unlucky.

    Oh well not much you can do about it now, they had a crack, unlucky and the ref certainly had a shocker when it came to marking up square.

    Sad thing is everyone is talking about the refs when they should be talking about a hard fought footy match on a Friday night

    2 down 1 to go feeling nervous yet Woods ??

    Great to see the return of turnstile Moses

    Thompson's try was a try everyday of the week every Friday of the week if he was wearing a Broncos jersey

    Get on the bus
