Tigers did the same thing to the Storm as last time. Pulled them down into the gutter and turned it into a real arm wrestle. Credit to the Tigers. Wasn't a pretty game to watch, but it's working for them so can't knock the "process" too much.

Now the real game begins!

Scrappy game but the players seem to be learning. Didn't seem to be many penalties compared to previous weeks

Great finish to a scrappy game with one of the NZ boys getting the winning field goal.

Tigers a bit of a surprise packet this year. All defense to, I wonder how long until they shake off their entertainers tag they have been carrying since 2005.

I'd be really pissed if our first loss is next week. The broncs attack asking no questions and defensively frail.

Is it me or this Kayla Ponga hype seem slightly manufactured. He’s been good but the way they go on about him you’d think he was Fusitua or a Kata

Simple solution. Bird to 5/8 Milf half.
Isn’t Bird a rep half, or was close to it?

In saying that, I just can’t doubt Bennett.
He’s persisted before when people have doubted what he’s up to and egged everyone’s faces.

Quick observations.

Is Ivan Cleary the only coach currently with a winning record against Melbourne/Craig Bellamy?

Who wouldve thought after 5 rounds Broncos, Storm & Cowboys would all have losing records.

Broncos looked quite ordinary. Somewhat rudderless on attack.

Brandy coppin some heat on the Fox Footy after show for saying JT looking like a player who’s played one year too long.
Sheessh, yeah he’s a future immortal for sure but hell, he is looking a bit old out there.
Onya Brandy for telling it how you see it.

I think that is unfair not only on JT but also on the Warriors. This is a tight competition and it doesn't take much to be off the pace. You can only play as good as the other team lets you.

I have to say though I don't know how Ivan Cleary is doing it with the Tigers. They are not a team of rock stars, but they are winning against very good sides.

Pretty sure he’s basing it off the season so far not just the Warriors game.
JT is legend no doubt, I’m a huge fan of his whole career.
Maybe he’s played at such an amazing level for so long that it’s always expected.
But I do tend to agree with Brandy. He doesn’t look the same.
Was funny when Bramdy said it, the panel reacted like it was almost blasphemous lol
