Greeny still out there kicking watermelons, you love to see it.
My favourite bit was his reaction. He basically got his kick charged down, shrugged - said f**k it - and didn’t move from the spot to turn and chase. Gotta save your energy there Kakariki - don’t want you getting tired and becoming even slower😂

The NRL will have to forget about expansion if this carnage keeps up, half the comp will be dead by September, it'll just be Blake Green and a bunch of 18 year olds like in WW1

Wouldn't want him to break out of a jog, his knees would self destruct.

Just to highlight the issues in the NRL at the moment. Prior to the conclusion of the in play Newcastle v St George game, the average points for the winning side in the previous 5 games this round is 38.4 and for the losing side, 5.2 points.

Add to that the injury toll, something needs to change. IMO 18th man won't help.

I hate to say it but I think head gear has to be a minimum for everyone

that knockout of Mann looked terrible

last weeks head clash in the Canberra game was sickening to watch

players will complain but fuck it, safety first

Let's just wait and see if we're in the 8 this weekend, if we get a hiding tonight yeah something definitely needs to change.

Fuck the titans, dragons have impressed me more. Clearly the issue at that club was the coach- look at how good they are now. Can't wait for our game against them- will be no push over.

It has been proven that head gear has no effect on head knocks and players use them for their own confidence, unlike the mouth guard which is beneficial jaw and mouth knocks.
Its because players who are faster and stronger why the injuries are so frequent.

Still early days but I thought the Dragons would struggle this year. They have been a bit of a suprise with their form.

TAB's upsets last few years (not 2018-2020)

200761/201 matches = 30% upsets
200857/201 matches = 28% upsets
200958/201 matches = 29% upsets
201066/201 matches = 33% upsets
201161/201 matches = 30% upsets
201268/201 matches = 34% upsets
201362/201 matches = 31% upsets
201475/201 matches = 37% upsets
201577/201 matches = 38% upsets
201658/201 matches = 29% upsets
201747/144 matches = 33% upsets

This year there has probably been 1 genuine upset in 27 games (us v Raiders caused by injury).

Others that could have gone the other way RD2 Eels/Storm, Knights Warriors, RD3 Knights/Tigers .................................................................................................................that is all...

What in the living hell has Papalii done to be the destructive player he is now?
Glad we punted him, if he was capable of this form and played within himself.
Bloody glad to see the back of him
