Im not sure they do either.

Why was Hynes taking over captain duties such as talking to the ref and kicking for touch and tapping etc? He did this whilst Finnucane was off the field and with a "c" next to Wades name.
Hynes had been on whole game, Graham played 30 mins in the second half. Doesn’t seem that outlandish Hynes just keeps dealing with ref… also I don’t think uncommon for halfback to tell ref he will kick for touch regardless of who is captain

Gotta love the shittakes.
'How can you only miss 2-3 weeks when your sprint out of the line to clothesline someone like that?'

I'm still struggling to find anyone that can explain why it is worse than the Tupou one to me. Got told it was because Kennedy leapt off the ground to hit opposition high and accused of relying on freeze frames when I showed he had a foot on ground at point contact was made.

How unreasonable of you to reference a picture that illustrated your point.

Well in response...
"People can't levitate and his feet come up, not sure how you can explain that if he didn't jump"
(I pointed out Walsh's feet also came up, it was momentum of both players)

Cows 3rd but other than the eels (who played like **** in the NT) they haven’t beaten anyone of real note yet.

Let’s see how they fair against the top half of the comp before declaring Peyton as “Coach of the year” Mr Johns!

Was thinking about having a look at this anyway (ladder position is current)

Lost to Dogs 4-6 (home) 15th
Beat Raiders 26-6 (home) 12th
Beat Broncos 38-12 (away) 8th
Lost to Roosters 4 to 28 (home) 6th
Lost to Warriors 25-24 (Qld) 10th
Beat Raiders 18-12 (away) 12th
Beat Titans 30-4 (home) 14th
Beat Eels 35-4 (Darwin) 5th
Beat Knights 36-16 (home) 16th

So they've had 5 home games but two of their away games were Broncos and Titans in Qld and then throw in Warriors in Qld and Eels in Darwin.
Did have trip to Canberra in round 2

Soft draw other than the win over eels which was a good one but otherwise a ho hum looking sheet for them.
To claim coach of the year at this stage against that is ludicrous

It was a good one but they'd have been stoked it was an away game in hot humid Darwin not Parramatta

Very true.
I see the cows dropping down the ladder.
I reckon the Warriors would have smashed them if it was them and not us yesterday

I’ve enjoyed watching the cows this year.
Would love their 19 year old number 12 in our team (forgot his name)

Nanai feels like a potential trap, the next Nikora.

Banging start to career, especially (mostly) collecting kicks but has some poor defense in him.
Just had a look and he sits second for average missed tackles! I didn't even think it was going to be that bad.
A league high for total penalties too, 5th on average, although our boy Cam is 4th
Throw in an error a game as well, not awful but not great.

Maybe he cleans it up and kills it, maybe it's Nikora 2.0
I'd rather not overpay to find out.

Toby Rudolf was the only Sharks player who didn’t touch the ball during the 10 minutes his side was down to just 11 players - yet he featured in one of the first video clips shown to players on Monday.

Technically, his involvement in the play was a missed tackle. But it meant so much more than that in the most improbable win of the year, described by NSW coach Brad Fittler as “one of the best club wins of all time”.

Loving the accolades coming our way. The odd loss like we did to the Broncs. Older head and Fitz will keep our heads levelled.

Actually having Penrith and Melb in such good form is good for us. It shows how much more we need to improve. If Melb and Penrith were having a slow start than we may have gotten ahead of ourselves.
