To be fair to Reynolds, he may have lost that with his penalties but hes a pretty good tackler and hes not afraid to put his body on the line. Hes a bit of an Ennis though.
Fair call but he was gone after half time and he wasnt the only one who ran out of gas, I would think most of those missed tackles came toward the end of the gameHis defence was abysmal, he let at least 2 tries in on his own.
NRLStats has him with 5 missed tackles… not good enough really.
Ridiculous really. Hayne was giving Sutton an ear full. Wouldnt happen in NRL but this is the NRLs blue ribbon event and the game will go on...
You wonder if they realise its becoming a showcase of the worst parts of the game, a build-up that rivals the great moments in human history followed by a game with massive home town ref bias, constant disrespect and moaning, glacial ruck speed inside the 20 or after a break, cheap shots and diving, jingoistic commentators (wally lewis blurting out “that’s a penalty”, for something the viewer can’t even see never gets old) followed by a series of laughable judiciary decisions and breathlessly reported stories about someone pushing someone else in a bar over a hat.
But if Greg Bird gets his way it will move further away from anything resembling the rest the of the sport, the money quote:
"It can't be adjudicated like a normal game. It's frustrating. If a bloke doesn't land on his head, you shouldn't get suspended."
It boggles the mind, isn’t “rise for alex” this weekend?, does anyone think the NRL will do anything about this clown openly saying that potentially career ending tackles should go unpunished in certain games?
Anyway, that’s done for another year, good job Laurie, big time goal line defence (and Cronk being crocked and Thurston being crap) probably was the difference.
QLD supporters have always been sore losers, but this is just sad. Your team won the dead rubber. Acknowledge the series winners
The refs won that game didnt they
Had a look at the front page of the courier mail today?LMAO, if QLD supporters are sore losers there needs to be a new word made up to describe NSW supporters, they are the Masters of it, Blues supporters have made an art of whining, we are just mere amateurs in comparison
There is an army of Blues journalists that write article after article with photographic evidence(LOL) to justify why their team was cheated out of winning a game or the moment that some nasty QLD player dropped a forearm or elbow, neglecting the 50 or so that their team gave out..lol too funny

Thought Lillyman went great. Game 3 was unfortunately a bit of a fizzer after what was served up especially in Game 1. Game 2 was marred by rough house tactics rather than football. Glad the best team over the series won. Parker was freaking phenomenal with his offloads yday though! Griffin should take note and play him in the backrow instead of masquerading him as a rotating prop.
Btw could a QLD supporter please suggest a banner name for NSW fans to be held for the next 2 weeks. Since no avatars were changed for game 2, it wont be done for the final game either.
Whats the point of gloating about a battle, once you have already won the war?Did have a giggle at the headline in I think it was the telegraph in sydney this morning (paraphrasing) "blue cares?- Queensland win meaningless origin game" wonder how meaningful it would have been had nsw won?

Channel Nine commentary is just about the worst commentary for League there is. Hell I was pining for a bit of Dale Husband at one stage last night.
How the hell they get away with Wally Lewis in the box cheering every Queensland half break and try as a passionate fan is beyond me, and i'm Morons!!
Commentary has to be impartial to be meaningful.
Listening to Wally Lewis call "Go you good thing" as Slater makes a break is actually bloody cringe worthy.
