A thread for all 2018 Round 19 team lists, discussions, news and views. Serves as a team list thread and game day discussion for all games through the week (besides the Warriors one of course :) ).

Feel free to add team lists as they become available people. Thank you...​

I looked at this and thought 'not before time' and then immediately thought I bet I know which team on Sunday afternoon will be first to be pinged by the whistle blowers.... and they don't play in purple.

If this is applied correctly, the boys could have a field day. My take says 2 or 3 in the first half and then forgotten about after then. Referee Smith will see to that.

Anyone without a daily telegraph subscription won't be able to read that article FYI.

We've certainly improved at getting away with slowing things down this year.

I find it funny that the referees concentrate on one thing and then move on to the next. I have seen some terrible play the balls lately for example.
 
Enjoyed some of the passing at pace in this game.

Raiders their main players are their dummy half (normal) and a winger (not very common). Rapana can make something happen out of nothing; even a run from dummy half on the other side of the field can turn into a run that creates a scoring opportunity.

Ooooh harsh on Raiders, touchie puts flag up, players stop, sharks go through and score.
Sharks getting benefit of some game changing calls of late...
