I'm feeling guilty about wanting the Panthers to win.... I hate it when we have to rely on other teams results to help us!!!!

Anyone catch the storm broncs game last night?

It was entertaining as hell.

Can someone clarify the double movement rule?

I thought it was black and white, if you hit the ground while being tackled then reach out its double movement. But last might the bunker gave a try for what I thought was double movement.

It all comes down to whether the tackled player's movement/momentum has stopped or not and whether the ball has touched the ground or not.

I was hoping the Broncs got beaten last night, if we were to make the 8 somehow I'd prefer to play the Bulldogs away than the Cowboys or Broncos, they look the least convincing.

Was that the Tohu Harris try? Ball or ball carrying arm hadnt hit the ground so he was fine.

Wonder if Cam Smith will get in further trouble for swearing at the ref. Probably not...

Halftime Raiders vs Sea Eagles: Can 18 Man 10.

Joran Rapana 2 tries, I can't see Kearney not picking him on that right wing.

1st in line breaks
2nd in tackle breaks
2nd equal tries scored

It's hard to ignore those attacking stats.

It really sucks knowing that in 3 and a half hours we will know if our season ends next Sunday:arghh:

In the true misery-ridden, soul-sucking fashion that I refer to as 'My Life' The Warriors will probably play the most amazing game tomorrow that will leave us all thinking about what could have been!

Cest la vie:shy:

In the other game.
If momentum has stopped and the line is there or with in an arm stretch away.
You can put the ball over the line with out body movement.
Might be the same with our game.

That'd be right, provided the arm holding the ball doesn't touch the touch the ground in the act of scoring and the tackle isn't deemed to be completed.

The game last night the Broncos were great really moved the Storm around. A good tactic instead of basic one out hit ups and getting stuck in the wrestle.

Had to get the kids sorted before I could watch the first of tonights games. Turned on the SkyGo and got the last 10 minutes, looks like defense was optional. Sometimes those types of games are a good watch, was it?
