He must be one of the fastest going. That try tonight was outstanding, nobody got near him.

Dogs 32 Tigers 22. Elijah Taylor a standout on defence. The Tigers are not a weak pack but that is what a good all round pack like the Dogs does to a side, grind them into the ground. 274 tackles to 350 wins games most times. 1743 metres to 1279 does as well. Can the Warriors do that? Not yet IMO.

The packs for the top 4 teams are equally formidable, the cream has slowly risen to the top in that department this season.

Cracks me up that the Eels have lost their points, and still sit above the Roosters, Bunnies and Manly... Man what a turn around from the last few years.

It's funny as fuck to see what's happened to Eels. I just feel sorry for their fans ...

Would love josh Reynolds playing for us. He's got some errors in his game but I haven't seen a Bulldogs game where he's been quiet/goes missing. Impressed hearing him in the post-game interviews, very hard on himself even though he was arguably the best player on the field.

Get the feeling Foran will eventually resurface with the Dogs, and with Mbye there Reynolds will likely be forced out?

Being selfish I want the Sharks to win this game only because this helps the Warriors on the points table.
Even though I just saw Ennis doing that try celebration again against the boys which I really really hate !

I'll probably get hate mail for saying it but Mick Ennis is one of my favorite players lol.

Good to see Fa'amanu Brown having a good game so far for the Sharks. Had his 2015 season ruined because of injury. Another young Kiwi with huge potential.

Brown is having a great game. Forced two errors in defense when the Panthers were in good attacking position and then made a break to set up the first try.

Hardaker just got carried over the line by Barba.

Anyone know what the Panthers payed for Zak Hardaker?

Segeyaro. Hardaker only signed till the end of the season. Will be interesting to see if the Panthers keep him or send him back to Leeds.

Has to be said Super League backs struggle with the transition to the NRL.

They certainly do, I'd imagine he will improve on this game but he hasn't even looked like breaking the line, looks like Moylan will remain at fullback for them at this stage.

I see Matt Mcilwrick was out there for the Sharks.
Remember there was talk a few years ago when he was at the Raiders of him being a possible bolster for the Kiwis when Issac was out. He sure dropped off for a while.

i can see why Hardaker and Tomkins were both considered for the Eng fullback spot... they certainly are equal in mediocrity

He was named in the Kiwis training squad last season for the England tour.

Seasons by gone the Kiwis struggled for depth at hooker so he was always in the mix, even though he's not played much NRL over his career. Now you have the likes off Nikorima, Cherrington, Levi, Brown and Roache who have or are currently playing hooker at NRL level, all off 22 years old an under.

Then you have Brandon Smith from the Cowboys playing Holden cup who has signed with Melbourne Storm from next season for 3 years.
