    sad way to end a great career. Love seeing the young GI highlights, it reminds me how ridiculous calling trell the next GI really is, GI was as elite an athlete as they come.


    best Hunter Based QLd player ever!


    in all seriousness, within what like 5 games QLD had JT, Smith, cronk, slater and GI play their last games from QLD, thats pretty nuts that those all time greats had their career overlap at a perfect time that just lead to that ridiculous dynasty

    Absolutely a sad end to what was an unreal career.
    Marred by a few off the field incidents, he had about as good an on the field career that anyone can have.
    he's the benchmark for centres post Big Mal, and was as good a fullback as slater at when at his absolute peak.

    Watching him go down the left side fending blokes off was unreal to watch. And nah, Latrell is eerily similar Smile

    Its also nice knowing that one of the greatest maroon reps ever was born and bred in NSW, totally ineligible for QLF, and the QRL showed what absolute scum they are by lying to get him selected.

    He is a bit of a polarising figure GI, but fark he had a good career. Hopefully he stays off the piss and off the pies into his post footy career, he has the potential to impact even more people off the field in retirement than what he did with his footy career.

    GI joins a long list of blokes that didn't get the fairytale finish to what has undoubtedly been an impressive career.

    Agree with Pieman about the Latrell similarities, particularly in their running styles and power - difference obviously being one has been there and done that.
    Also remains to be seen whether Latrell has the ability to step up in the big games and the big moments, which was something GI will certainly be remembered for.

    As for the QLD thing - it is comforting to know that even when NSW were in the midst of a streak of series wins, blokes didn't want to play for you....

    But on what LG said, 5 games is a long time in Origin (2 years) and yes we've had a few guns bow out in that period but it is a chicken and the egg scenario where the records and abilities of these players is heavily fluctuated by the Origin wins.
    I still maintain and have been saying since 2006, that the biggest influence on the dynasty we had was the coach we employed.

    Also and it is weird/unsettling to agree with Pieman twice in the one post, hoping GI has an equally impressive post football career, where he definitely could be a real influence for a lot of people.

    I see Ron’s entertaining dribble hasn’t changed a bit.

    so apparently Gagai wants out due to the roberts signing...
    Gagai wants to play centre - its clear as day he is a better winger than centre but he sees himself as a centre so now he wants out?

    A gouge involves bending of the fingers, intent, I didn't see that, it was more just where the fingers ended up and was there pressure ? Eye gouge and biting are probably the grubbiest acts, but I'm not sold that this was. Careless or what ever other downgrade word they use I think will come into play and he will cop 1-2 weeks. A low grade eye gouge, that will be new.

    Wasn't a gouge, but a rub to the eyeball. If he'd "dug in his fingers" he'd have excavated his bloody eyeball.

    Sure. eye gouge doesnt mean he was trying to dig his eye out - but he was pushing his fingers into Farah's eye and didnt withdraw. Was well worse than Mcguire IMO and his was a shocker too. Looked like Burgess had clear intent too, knew exactly what he was doing.

    McGuire is a protected species, got off with fines when all these other blokes are getting lengthy suspensions

    Too busy celebrating to watch this game properly. Watched the replay today. Why was Hunt allowed to take his 2m drop out while players were still offside. Should have been brought back to be done again. Or penalised for taking it with people offside,m which they never do but would have had the same result.

    It was a penalty wasn't it?

    They always call blokes back if they are trying to kick it or tap it and players are in front of the kicker
    Why didnt they do it this time?

    Technically they should all be penalties but they never call it so why pick this one out??

    The reffing over the last few weeks has been an absolute disaster lol

    ^^^^ Yep. Exactly. But I don't think it was called out, I think the penalty was for not kicking it the 10.

    Having watched the replay many times the Dragons on another note should never have got the penalty to get in front in the first place, Hunt knocks the ball on into Douiehi foot.

    Anyhow we nearly threw it away, watching how ordinary the Rorters were today gives me confidence we can beat them when it comes down to it.

    The teams I am worried about are Storm and Raiders.

    Manly always play well against Storm, I think we can beat them when it matters too.

    It’s fairly obvious that it will be a Souths - Parra Grand Final.

    The mighty Bunnies will bash Manly senseless this week. Easy win. Then flog Canberra. The Burgess boys and Murray are going to go berserk from here.

    It’s the easy passage. The Eels will be a walkover in the GF.
