    Sounds like a wrestle fest to me. Sharks look **** this year, won't be surprised to see us beat them & put Gal in his place, who is constantly saying we are still just an inferior team & won't do anything this year despite us being a completely different team from last year with a top class halfback.

    Can't believe Cowboys form, expected them to win not get beat emphatically, 1 from 4 for a team that has done so well. I thought they were most likely g/f along with Melb.

    It's still only early but yeah I'm surprised with the early season form from the Cowboys

    There is time to turn it around and they have the roster to do it

    Cowboys have never started the season well under Green. No teams do. Not sure what his trick is but for some reason his side's don't click until a few months into the season. One of his premierships with wynum manly in the Q-cup lost the first 6 or 7 games of the year then dominated the comp after that.

    Plus if McLean isn't the most overrated prop in the comp then he isn't far off it. I'd rather have Tamou back on the money he is on now at Penrith.

    Coote is also a massive loss. He does so much organisation for the team especially in defence. Same as last year. When he was out, was the period we leaked the most points over a stretch of games.

    Loved seeing Smith sent off for having a big mouth, but Slater got away with his usual milking.

    Sutton and the refs are stifling the game with all this dumb penalty crap. If players continually offend sin bin 'em and less talk fests about 'This is the last warning'!

    It’s like anything in life, it’s commonsense. It’s frustrating just watching it, and the games have been crap.

    Those 2 games yesterday were the worst games to watch that ive ever seen , it was a penalty a thon and I'm over the way the nrl is going with new rules every 5 min and stop start games that are **** to watch they were actually painfull to watch ..
    I have had enough except for Knights games ( because i love them ) i wont be watching any other footy games from now on .
    Greenberg and the rest of them are stuffing our great game and I'm over it after 50 years of playing , coaching and training teams and being a fan off League I'm all but Finished ...
    The game is a poor reflection of the 80s and 90's its played by rich spoilt brats and run by people that could,nt run a car over a cliff properly . The Refs are too big for theyre boots and coaches , doctors and Mums have to much say in the game now a days .

    Whisper I got out of Sydney this morning is the refs are peed off over Sutton getting the top job and are out to embarrass him out of the job. Interesting?

    If thats the case they all need a kick up the ***. Talk about selfish. Demote all top grade refs and give the other guys a go. Sutton was a bad choice anyway so give him the flick also. The only thing blokes should be getting constantly pinged for is play the balls. The amount of penalties for offside is beyond ridiculous but teams do need to be held accountable at some stage.
