    No, I actually totally agree with you. I just don't get what you mean when you say that it was nowhere near the Tigers best team.

    Blewy - You guys need Marshall back if you are going to go back to back, without him Prince is under too much pressure as the only MAIN playmaker in the side. Obviously Farah and Hodgson create tries from time to time but Marshall puts that much more doubt in the oppositions defensive line.

    Can't wait for the Dragons v Tigers season opener. Hopefully we get Heady back and I think that will mean we are full strength. It'll also be interesting to see how the team goes without Thommo, a big loss in my opinion. An underrated player who was always prepared to do the hard yards.

    How did the ref fail to count to 6?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Gansen had a poor tri nations as well. I don't see how he can be considered the best ref in the world.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Gansen is an idiot, I can;t believe he gets picked to ref these games over the over guy from the UK who did some games in the NRL last season.

    Russell Smith? I thought he was pretty terrible. He doesn't even know the correct interpretation of the obstruction/shepherd rule, which coincedentally cost us a game against the Panthers last season.

    It's not very popular here in Australia, probably due to time of year, the fact Aussie teams usually lose, and the team's sent are never 100%.
    It's the biggest thing in the world when we win. If we lose, we don't talk about it...still taken more seriously than Aussies take it, mind. Cost Ellery Hanley his job as Saints coach when he couldn't be arsed fielding a proper side.

    Big call, seeing as all their hopes rest upon Johns. If he gets injured at the wrong time, they're gone.

    Maybe not the spoon, but I'll offer you a bet on the Tigers not making the 8.

    There is no right time for joey to get injured as far as the Knights are concerned...

    Just want to point out that Wigan are chokers and that Castleford are relegated already. With the exceptions of Kain and Sculthorpe, they were all too busy ****ting themselves to play today.
    Maybe the Aussies here can clarify this, does Nutley always just run randomly around trying to take as many people's heads off as possible, or does he play sometimes?


    ...I've really got to stop rambling on about stuff no one cares about.
