    The first or second replay straight after the try showed it hit the Parra players hand, that replay angle never got shown again

    Definitely agree of the Melbourne cultural thing just need to look at their sports pages and it's 90%+ AFL and will tear any other sport to shreds- heaven forbid you mention you don't follow AFL(they're literally dumbfounded).
    It's definitely catered more for the live experience, I had a work function at the MCG to watch a game and I admit it was actually better than I thought- checked out a game on TV the next round and couldn't make it more than a quarter due to being bored out of my mind.
    Sydney (and the NRL by extension) canabalise their own product by killing its growth and looking too inwards to protect their own interests

    Downward pressure is simple. Why must we always make it a mystery?

    I've watched it a couple of times as I recorded the game and could not see a touch at all. The replays did show it was passed forward before getting anywhere near the Parra player

    Taumalolo having a big say in this game, been waiting a while to see him really stand up in an important game ... I think he may be starting to come of age as a leader.

    Am I alone in thinking the hype around TMM is a little over the top. I don't rate him that much at all

    Have to respect the Cowboys going this far and getting a win in the finals without Thurston and Scott. A lot of clubs fall apart without their main play maker.

    Just a good depth player. No way the Cowboys ever thought he would be first line. For JT! Important to remember the kids only 21...

    In 8 years or so when he is pretty much shot we can look forward to him coming to the Warriors to retire. We'll pay him overs and he will laugh in our faces. I hear he is reading Isaac Luke's autobiography at the moment ;)

    Yeh that's true. Learning from the best as well I guess which will no doubt be beneficial to his development

    To do that without JT..awesome Cowboys! Michael Morgan coming into his own. Taumalolo just a beast!
    Great weekend of finals footy, every game was exciting, shame about the crowds.

    Very Warrioresque that last play by Fifita. Just needed another simple run up the middle to set up for the field goal attempt and he heads off towards the sideline.......

    Couldn't believe what I was watching when he started heading sideways. Glad I'm not a sharks fan because I think after watching that passage of play I'd be up for a new tv
