    this lara pitt has concussions wrong. seen her a couple of times now and she seems to think any concussion is a life threatening experience. in a tiny share of occasions it can be, but the difference between the trouble they have in the nfl which is a big story, and league is that the nfl players due to the helmets are constantly getting hit in the head.

    you don't want head knocks, but they happen. You only need to look at history to see what playing league does compared to nfl or boxing. League players have ruined knees, crooked noses and a nuggety physique. Boxers and linebackers are the ones who get parkinsons and have lasting mental issues in the main.

    That was hard to watch even for me.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Can cop my side getting beaten in any sport if they have a go. Half that side weren't trying ffs. Worst thing in sport. Despise it.

    yeah sandows effort in particular was disgraceful. defending him on the wing a big cop out which wouldnt do anything for his own confidence or the others' in him i'd have thought.

    So sad they had to raise your hopes with that first game too.

    Hopes not really raised with the first round, given they were playing the equally hapless water buffalos from across the Tasman. As I said, it's just them not having a go that rankles. When they lost to the Belmore Mange they at least had a dip. But not last night.

    FMD Williams didn't even play the ball in the entire first half. Embarrassing.

    I know the Eels were utter poo, but how good were the Roosters? Can they tough it out against the better teams? Two consecutive games keeping the opposition to nil is a fair effort against anyone, I think they are top 4 potential but I'm not convinced with Maloney/Pearce/Friend in a clutch match.

    Yeah, of those three I rate Maloney probably the best tbh. Pearce is solid but you see in Origin with that turd missed tackle on Thurston in the decider that he's really a dud when it matters. Friend is an unknown quantity.
