    What a finish. Expect to see sam falling hard at the judiciary due to that kick.
    IMO the bulldogs screwed up at the end and lost their focus.
    lots of niggle. Would need to watch last 15 mins again to be able to give a break down, but Sam was so good and so bad all in 5 mins. Rekon that might be his year

    That kick wasn't as bad as Smith on Luke last year. I don't even think Luke had a hand on him.

    I've seen it happen in both codes, all the time. Hang on to someone's boot for slightly too long and you're gonna cop it.

    I don't condone it. It just happens often is all.

    There was no need for it IMO. Sam Kasiano gained nothing from getting up so fast. He had lost the ball so its not like he was going to get a quick play of the ball. He's been charged and I hope they throw the book at him. Thats the type of dumb brain explosions you see at your local club. Even then you dont see much of those type of thug styles. Thats right up there with the swinging arm to the chin. You dont expect to see at NRL level...

    Yeah, Tigers for sure. If Penrith win tonight & GC beat Knights (guessing they will), we'll be 3 points adrift.

    A Tigers win does make next week interesting. The Panthers and Titans could get out of reach for us if they keep winning.

    Titans have the advantage on being on an uneven competition point taking out the points differential.

    Dont know if anyone watching this game (or trying to) on Skygo and having trouble with it? Skygo has to be one of the worst viewing choices.... :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Damn sweet try by the Panthers. They have been pretty good to watch lately. Also hitting some good form.

    Unless there's a miracle from the Tigers in the 2nd half the Panthers are through with the win tonight which leaves us battling with the Titans for 8th imo. If we cant beat the Cowboys tomorrow night and the Titans can reasonably be expected to beat the Knights tomorrow then the last two rounds we need to win against the Tigers and Eels and the Titans need to lose against the Panthers and Cowboys. Could be interesting if the Cowboys rest players in the last round. At least we will know if the seasons over before the last game.

    Nit a good situation to be in needing to rely on other results but the Titans have two pretty hard games coming up. The Panthers have been going well these last few rounds and you would expect the Cowboys to get their act together coming into the semis (just wait a week please;)). Lucky for us they are playing the Cowboys in Townsville. So they could quite easily lose both of those matches. Newcastle must due surely.

    Hopefully after this loss and some injuries we get the Tigers down on confidence. The Eels are still a bit of a danger despite not having anything to play for.

    Dont see that happening TBH. They are sitting at 6th and really need to cement a spot in the top 4 to have any chance of going back to back. They'll be looking to start that process tomorrow against us unfortunately...

    6 Again 1st Grade Fringe

    The Panthers are just continuing from their second half against Newcastle last week and are completely dominant against the Tigers.

    Given the Titans only beat the Tigers in golden point last round I'd tip them to go down to the Panthers next week, their game against Newcastle will be crucial this weekend, if they drop that game were every chance to make the eight with the Titans last game against the Cowboys in Townsville, even if we lose tomorrow and the Titans win we can still a chance to make the 8 but faark what a bullshit way to get there.

    Read an article today and Aussie Jim Tamou was worried about the Cowboys missing the 8 altogether.
    They gonna be pumped tomorrow.

    When I liked your post what I actually meant was...

    Odds are already stacked against us without the Cowboys being pumped up. Man for man they have most our team pegged. Warriors are going to have to play their A game tomorrow or we could miss out on the 8 just from the potential points differential we could suffer in Townsville...

    Have got the horrible feeling we are about to play the Cowboys into form for the finals. Can only see a flogging Royal with heads dropping early in this one. Thurston, Scott, Tamou all angry for this one I give us no chance. Another lost season with all the hype yet again

    Very solid stats by Konnie in the first 1/2 againt the Knights.

    11 hit ups, 117M in only 40min. In fact, second highest in the team in mtrs next to Greg Bird @ 122M.

    WTF was this when he played for us?
