    Flanagan's assertion that Colin Best should also have been awarded a try 16 minutes from time with his side up 14-12 received some support from an unlikely source in video referee Steve Clark.

    Clark said he would have awarded the try, but he never got the chance to rule on it with Maxwell refusing to send the decision upstairs after ruling a double movement.
    Was swearing at the TV when it happened and reading that didnt make me any happier.

    792 with two to play here.

    Might be giving you the word a bit late here, but Flash wasn't worth it this year anyway. His price was based on his scores last year which all came at fullback. He was going to be put onto the wing this year, where he makes fewer meters, scores fewer tries and busts fewer tackles. Devo that he's injured, but not for dreamteam related reasons.

    Sharks were robbed, and Maxwell is an awful ref. The penalty for offside after the chargedown in extra time was such a bad call. Didn't think you could score a field goal if an opposition player played at the ball before it went over. The long passes for Ryans try were suspect as well. Still Carneys field goal attempt was stupid. Had 6 tackles and tries a hasty attempt with 3 players in his face. If he keeps his head he works an attempt he can throw over and the **** refereeing is academic.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    He'll be gone next week anyway now.

    Always reckon as a good rule of thumb it's worth getting as many place kickers in as possible tho. Got in Cam Smith, Parker, Carney, Gordon, Lyon & Marshall on that basis.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I scored a disappointing 663 in round 1. I made some late changes that didn't help, most noticeably getting rid of Graham after he was named on the bench - Thurston was a dud in round 1, hopefully he improves!

    Todd Carney 82 and Shaun Fensom 88 are the players I'm happy with.

    Fensom is ridiculous at the worst of times, and he scored a try this weekend.

    Ended up with 736. Happy with Adam Reynolds and Dave Shillington who I purchased for a song. Disappointed with Gallen and Brett Stewart. Devo that Tedesco got injured, kid had 18 points by the 30 minute mark.

    I had to campaign last year to get a separate thread for tipping; maybe we need a separate thread for Dream Team stuff as well. This is not what I expect when I open the NRL thread.

    807, baby!

    With apologies to PEWS.

    On the "things to piss off Cribbage" theme, I see Ellis is set on returning to Blightly at the end of the season.

    Yeah, it's just the worst thing to see a new post, only to open up the thread proper to read posts talking about how many points an imaginary team got on the weekend. Absolutely eye-glazing stuff. Same with AFL Supercoach.

    Not that I don't respect the people involved

    nrl.com has lots of highlights.

    NRL Videos ? NRL.com

    Unsure if they'd block it from certain countries or not though.

    There's a redirect because I'm not in Australia.

    Unfortunately my soundcard/speakers are ****ed.

    Sharks both paying 2.20 with Ladbrokes. Seems a value bet.
