    Hate this time of the year when we have to watch the teams we need to lose and the for and against results that either keep us in or out of the top eight.
    Would prefer we did it on our own merit of course.

    Looks like a power play by Jason Taylor dropping Farah to ISP.
    Origin one week, reserve grade the next.
    This shit seems to just carry on with these 2.
    Have to think Farah should've left last year, can't be good for the playing group or the club.

    Looks like JT is trying to rebuild and lose the overpaid players who are standing in the way. Be interesting to see who goes first. Farah or Taylor...

    Cowboys putting on a clinic so far. Already 2 tries, and so close to 2 more.

    Dogs been really sloppy. Taumalolo is already on 123 m and Tamou is on 110 m. In one half!!!

    I long to see Shaun Johnson control the team around like Thurston does. Hopefully oneday.

    I long to see our forwards give the platform to do so. Taumalolo is just a beast.

    The thing about the Cowboys though is that they just dont really solely on JT. Morgan and Coote are just as dangerous if you take your eye off them. Like that Granville too. Nuggetty player who always holds his markers. Also watch the commitment from them. Kick chase, scramble defence, line speed, etc. Thats a team who are playing for each other 100%.

    Love watching this team...

    It's not even just their spine. Cooper catching the ball and giving inside passes where there's multiple players in support both forwards and backs.

    After that scoreline I wonder if Cappy has that game marked as a probable win?

    Waqa Blake..Ouch!
    Wonder what it's like to get knocked out and waking up in the middle of a massive stadium like Suncorp full of people.
    Be fucken trippy as.

    Getting knocked out is trippy no matter what. I feel more sorry for how far they have to walk off. A knock like that, all he probably wants to do is sit down.

    Broncos, Broncos, Broncos.

    Perhaps the worst half I've seen from them in the last 2 years.

    First time in ages I want the Broncos to win, if Penrith and Titans win, which is looking likely, that's more pressure on us

    The Panthers have so much footy in them I can't see them getting run down in second half.

    Bennett has the best poker face of all the coaches, you wouldn't know his teams having a shocker.

    Getting to the top eight is just one more spot than ninth, so really means little. If we really are aiming to do anything it has to be top six so it shouldn't matter what goes on around us. If we are top six material we have two four pointers against both of those teams to prove it.

    They have been having a few shockers, and that first try by Penrith was a great example. WTF is going on with that club?
