So Brandon’s injury a bit more serious than what nine originally reported it seems.

Tui has had a couple of games back and NAS one game and the rest of forwards have had rests.

Craig will also have a defensive plan in place to try and nullify Turbo and we won't have 9 players drop off tackles in the same play like the Cowboys did last week.

Craig said that they think he has a facial fracture but that nothing is displaced. He is going for scans.

Fingers crossed it is ok.

Brilliant performance 1-17.

Forwards dominant. Papi on fire. Munny strong. Turbo held to crumbs.

Ok a boo boo by Lumelume but he came back ok after it.

Hope the Cheese is ok. We do drop a bit of intensity when he’s not on the field.

Amazing professional display. Well done all.

Possible facial fracture for smith. Will miss pre lim at least most likely. Huge loss. May not even play GF unless he wants to do a Sam burgess. Devastating news.

Other then that, solid dominant performance. Glad the boys get the two weeks off to rest up.

We are gone if Brandon Smith is out for the Prelim. Shocking injury

They were saying on the radio of the five times we've played the Eagles in finals the closest margin has been 26 points, on three occasions. They also said the last three results have all been 40-12. I can't be bothered checking but given it's the ABC I'd like to think it is correct.

Minor Prems and 40 points on Manly in a final, already a successful season I would say!

Didn't you say that we couldn't beat the Sea Wiggles as well? You would have thought you'd learn your lesson. I Suppose you can't teach stupid!

You'd hope Grant Atkins' season would be done for trying to make Brandon Smith play the ball whilst clearly hurt then
