    Well he's having a pretty garbo game on field today.  

    Fine I'll rephrase it. In a game with tough officiating calls, Luciano has made some blunders which has affected his score.  
    It is not a score which I find satisfactory but I shall reserve judgement until the match is over and his final score is determined.

    Having a stinker and still on 18 at the half. Much better than 50 minute effort with HIA and finishing on 25. Plenty of game left mate

    No mate, I think it’s too late for that.

    Ennis seems to be grating on a lot of people nowadays, but I'm with you, I still think he's great.

    I reckon so! I backed him the last 7 or 8 games last year ATS thinking he couldn't go any longer. Cut my losses this year.

    Never got 8/8 before, who do people think to tip between Souths/Manly

    I too am torturing myself in the same situation.
    Not sure if I want to pick Manly because my old 90s Rabbitohs fan pessimism is kicking in.
    Manly looked good against the knights despite the loss, Souths looked terrible versus the Cowboys despite the win. Plus AFB back for Manly is huge

    What spooks me is that Sportsbet is offering such low odds for the Bunnies I tend to think there is something im missing. And all the experts tips who I rate (Matty Johns, Greg Alexander etc) have tipped the bunnies.

    Definitely going against the grain with the Manly pick, but it could be more valuable if it comes off because fewer will pick them (85% on ESPN tips went Rabbitohs) and less people will get 8/8 for bonus points (if that is the way your comp is even structured)

    I like Ennis, think it's just a case of most hating him as a player so tough getting away from that as a commentator

    I used to hate Ennis. Then when he started coming on NRL360 I started liking him, and even began to like him as a player, Shitfuckery shenanigans included. Both he and James Graham were surprisingly articulate and perceptive football analysts of both the game and the social issues

    Was on 18 at half time. Nothing wrong with that considering how the half went.

    He has "scored" a try once, that was denied by the bunker.

    I've come full circle. Hated him as a player. Then indeed realised how much insight he has as a commentator (easy I suppose when compared against blocker for example) and I was liking him for a while. Starting to annoy me again talking over people and prone to hyperbole. I'd be okay with it if he didn't pronounce fatigue like a boofhead. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now. I'm sure he cares what I think Very Happy
