if we had Luke, i would have given them a 60/40 shot at taking this game, due to the closing out of all the tight ones. But without I really think it will be 40/60 instead. IMO another incidence of the NRL influencing the outcome of a game with inequitable penalties for dubious actions.
For me its a bit like the lead up to the last Melbourne game. Everyone knows that we are going to get smashed. I was so sure last time I put all my bookie dollars on Melbourne 13+
And look what happened
I hope we can do it again tonight. Getting close would be cool. A win I think is a step too far
But I would be happy to be surprised
And if we get smashed I'll still watch to the end
Chanel saw what happened to those two and he strikes me as a pretty grounded kid without too much ego. Never seen him try to win a game single handed like Tui by running sideways for 5 minutes and getting tackled over the sideline. I think Kearney's done pretty well with his gradual introduction. Unless we get smashed again, then SK's never done anything right for another week.
