Anyone else have trouble following the ball in tackles tonight?

Broncos had a white jersey, white socks and half the team had white boots.

NRL need to have a yellow or pink ball.

FMD, the footage of Chris Close belting Eric Grothe in the 81 origin is hilarious. I don't remember having seen that.

Yes, but I did love seeing Thaiday shove Vunivalu into the next postcode. He's been carrying on for abit now Vunivalu he's so arrogant.

Whilst it's not great sportsmanship should it be illegal if a player plays injured and needled up ?
SOURCE : Zero Tackle

Sam Thaiday has been charged with contrary conduct out of last night’s match against the Storm.

With the charge of the lowest grade, Thaiday will only receive a $1500 base fine for the charge, which came about because he grabbed onto Storm prop Jesse Bromwich’s thumb.

Every player takes a cortisone shot or a pain killing injection at some point.

Morris got the try but I can bet the coach won't be too happy with that offload. 4 minutes to go, 4th tackle, down by 6. You'd wanna take the tackle and look for that extra set from a drop out. Much of a muchness seems they scored but it seemed like a pretty silly move under the circumstances

I don't think I have ever said this before, but Chris McQueen is best on field at the moment.

The warriors are terrible

They really are mate. Most inconsistent player in the nrl in johnson. Their backs are forever injured. Then foran will come in and be under pressure from the get go. They'll miss the 8

Now im a fan of 17 a side in the game but with this concussion rule surely theres room for 18. Maybe where the 18th man can only be brought on in the first half, and if he does you write the guy he replaces off for the night. So many head knocks in the game now and if theyre serious about teams making sure they stay off if needed, especially when it happens early, maybe the 18th man is needed

Yeah.

It's a shame that if it was introduced it would probably be exploited. It's really ****ed when things that are there for player welfare are exploited.

These Parra forwards looking very average without Norman carrying them.
