    Phew. Was feeling comfortable with the 13+ margin at halftime. Just happy to have held on and guarantee one of Sharks or Storm into the final.

    Really? I haven't been there in 10 years or something but I'm sure the ABV was the same or similar.

    I don’t know if it’d be for me or not but i certainly hope it grows! I’m going to watch dragons and warriors and see.

    If it grows I think I’d like to see the teams renamed just so it stands out as it’s own competition instead of being the roosters “oh and we also have a women’s team”

    so table going into the last round with Broncos v Warriors & Dragons v Roosters to come:

    Broncos - 4 +36
    Warriors - 2 -6
    Dragons - 2 -14
    Roosters - 0 -16

    so i think the scenarios are:

    Broncos win + Dragons win = Broncos/Dragons GF
    Warriors win + Roosters win = Broncos/Warriors GF
    Broncos win + Roosters win + combined margin >10 = Broncos/Roosters GF
    Broncos win + Roosters win + combined margin <10 = Broncos/Warriors GF
    Warriors win <20 + Dragons win by a margin 9 more than the Warriors = Broncos/Dragons GF
    Warriors win <20 + Dragons win by a margin <9 more than the Warriors = Broncos/Warriors GF
    Warriors win >20 + Dragons win + combined margin >50 = Warriors/Dragons GF

    Scheduled kick off time is 7.40..

    It is now 7.41 and they’re still warming up in the change room.

    The afl kickoff was scheduled for 7.20

    The bounce was at 7.20

    The nrl is a Fucken joke in every aspect nowadays

    Gus has said some stupid things in the past but what he said just takes the cake...

    In a competition that has Timmy Mannah in it how can he possibly say that Cameron Murray has the fastest play of the ball in the league..

    I’m appalled

    Throughout the regular Rounds this year I am 100% confident that this has been the best year for them getting the kick off times almost spot on for at least a decade.  In fact for me it has been one of the few improvements in our professionalism this year*.

    Unfortunately yes, they have undone that good work with the Finals.  In saying that it's all relative as they have only been 10 minutes late this and last week where they could be 20 or more in previous seasons.

    *another noticeable improvement is that here have only been like 8 or 9 games where there is no fucking kick off tee to start the game...#amateurhour

    It just annoys me they clearly don’t give a fuck. If they said oh we’re running late or sorry about the delay I wouldn’t give a fuck by they take the piss. At 7.44 4 minutes after kick off they said ok we’ll head to an ad break and be back for kick off. If they want kick off at 8 fine! schedule it for 8 don’t say 7.50 then fuck around for 10 minutes

    Dragons were $26 on the TAB to win it after their First Round showing. I thought about a sneaky $20 in a 4 horse race but baulked. They looked good today.

    I think you’re being pretty hard done by here to be honest.

    The last several weeks the play the play the ball has been terrible but it’s only the bunnies that have been picked up on it even with a dragons player all over Cricton. That obstruction annoys me because next week that’ll be a no try.

    Also Latimore should have been binned I thought it was accidental until i saw the replay he didn’t have his eyes on the ball and actually dived at his legs.
