General NRL 2019 Finals Week 2 - General Discussion

Was really hoping that Manly would win this game. I think they were the most dominant team.
Hopefully Raiders can knock out the Rabbitohs next week as don't think the Rabbits deserve to make the grand final.
They also got lucky they don't have to play the Storm next week. They are a chance against the Raiders.

Predicting a Raiders vs Storm final.
 
Thought Manly had the game to win in the last quarter but thats when they went to bits, dropped balls and then the penalty for taking too long for the drop out. Exciting game to watch, what finals should be like - why Suli wasn't involved in that last 10 i don't know, he was their biggest weapon. Guess finals experience prevailed for souths, hope raiders smash them next week.

I cheered harder last night for Manly than I have all season for our Warriors, old habits kicking in? I hate that it felt great though lol

It just all went wrong for Manly at the end there, Jake T being sent off was a huge talking point. Oh well supporting parra or the raiders, would be good to see one of them take it all this year.

I was cheering hard for them as well. It is a shame Jake was sent off. If Tom T was playing they would have won easily I think. The fullback Elliot let them down big time.
 

Ever Hopeful

The Trbojevic sin bin was right because....technicality....technicality.

Okay fine NRL, but as a fan of rugby league the sin binning call was wrong because it didn't take into account the player's intentions, the actual impact it had on that play and it totally skewed the result of a finals game.

Rule book says yes, fan experience says here we fucken go again. I feel so bad for Trbojevic, he is a good honest player who works his ass off for his team. A penalty would have been sufficient.

Oh well at least we are not rugby where contact with the head is going to result in red cards no matter the extenuating circumstances. Can't wait for whole games to be ruined over that one.

Looking forward to the women's game later without all of this bullshit.
 
Didn't get to watch the Souths vs Manly game live due to a family issue. Ended up watching it pretty late half asleep.

Still enjoyed it though. Try for try. Started with it looking like a long night for Manly before they came back.
