Geez Dragons with Sims, Vaughan and Widdop would be handy. I hate injuries, they ruin the spectacle of big occasions. The Dragons sure have had some adversity over the past 7-8 weeks

Wow, there are some calls and a half in the last few minutes here

If a tackle starts with 2 or more in a tackle a 1 on 1 strip should not be allowed imho

wow what a finish, so did the bunnies get a helping hand with that call from the ref to turn the drags around?
 
Why not? I like it. Adds a point of competition to the game not to mention excitement.

I just reckon 1 on 1 all good - fair competition - you've earned it, but if you use multiple players to start the tackle and make them easier to strip it's just a bit cheap shit.

Looked like Frizzelle called Lomax out of that tackle so he could strip it. Brilliant stuff.
I know its risky and coaches like to minimise risk but I'd like to see more one on one strips. When it was first brought it I was expecting big game to be lost due to someone getting a good steal with the ball carrier not expecting it due to it not being used to often.

From Melb can confirm this. Afl no where near as good on tv.
I can see why GAEFL is so popular live. So the fans can watch those dudes in tight shorts and singlets and give each other a hand job at the same time!! Can't do that watching at home....... Genius AFL. Well Played.

Two games....two one point thrillers.

Best comp in the world of Rugby codes.

yep that was a real arm-wrestle. very satisfying to watch. shame "my" team didn't win but oh well.

interesting that all four of the bottom-half of the 8 teams have now exited: Warriors, Broncos, Panthers, Dragons.

Yeah I hear you.
The main thing for me is it’s an actual competition for the ball, which we don’t have much of in league anymore and opens up more chance for the unexpected.
Puts the onus on the carrier to to be more conscious of keeping the ball secure.
