    Well that was a very sloppy first 20 minutes.

    Have to say the Dragons came to life and dominated the final 20 of the first half, that hunt to widdop kick was brillant just a touch off on timing.
    Hopefully Lodge get belted in the second 40 and is out for the season, be a good night then lol

    Dragons in front due to less errors not better play, kick for no try had a French connection if memory serves me on a night honouring Changa. Pity but it was definitely of side.

    Sloppy game but every team is a bit rusty early on

    Definitely played better. Sloppy yes, but looked good in attack at times. Broncos have no halves & no forward pack.

    Ain't you guys got any respect for poor Uncle Benny?

    Seriously good to see him get it, along with Lodge and Korbs highly overrated performance.

    Looking at the stats for the round so far and there have been 54 penalties across the 3 games...Don't think I've ever seen so many dished out so quickly

    Don't think anyone would've picked the Tigers to be 2-0 up at halftime

    Once again Penalty ridden game, 8 all up in the first half

    It really shows what a footballer you are when you level a game up and your priority is to perform a post try celebration.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to see the table turned upside down, come Rd, say 10. Roosters, Storm, Cows down the bottom. Knights, Tiges, Titans up top. Pipedream eh.

    I only saw the first half but christ the Roosters must’ve played terribly because the Tigers attack in the first half was woeful.

    Sidenote.. Dane’s still losing.

    Woeful both sides in Tigs and Chooks ~ neither was hungry for the win. The Tigs seemed to think they could not win and the Chooks seemed to think it would go their way in the fullness of time.

    The Warriors played hard tough footie in 30º heat and were much sharper than the bunnies. Inglis and Gagai did not contribute much and the finishing score flattered the bunnies who trailed 10-32 and got two late consolations when it was all over.
