Re: Round 2 - Sharks vs Storm

We played that grinding style of footy for an hour against Manly and we typically play it against Cronulla for as long as they are willing. I hope we start playing some footy earlier than an hour in though. Against Manly we had 2 offloads in the first half. In the second half we had 10. It's always ...

Re: Official Injury Updates Thread

The gash(es) on Finucane's head from the Manly game. Gruesome. One of the worst I have seen.

Re: Round 1 - Sea Eagles vs Storm

As is the case every year, in the early rounds, completions = victories. If you are completing better than your opposition, the vast majority of time you will win. The only team that won with a lower completion rate than the opposition this week was the Knights (81%) over the Warriors (85%) in the g...

Re: Round 1 - Sea Eagles vs Storm

And again Hughes for Suli! Four kicks in the one play, ending in a try. A bit of luck but I’ll take it.

You are right we have no attack. We also need a half back that does more than bomb the ball to nowhere at the end of set. Do something else or anything else.
Just after you write that he puts in a beautiful kick for Suli :lol: You’re right though, he hadn’t done much until that point.

Re: Crowd Lockouts
