I reckon Broncos would prefer a dry, fast track so they can throw offloads and move the ball to test out Penrith's edges.

Agree that would suit Broncs but it isn't like it doesn't suit Penrith either

Panthers went down to the Tigers in the rain earlier in season though

Rain would make things very interesting

Rain would highlight Cleary vs Reynolds a bit more
Or more accurately broncos vs Cleary and panthers vs Reynolds, as they wouldn't directly be trying to take each other on

Crazy that the best team in the last 3 years has such a better percentage...

Rare Gavin Badger W as well

Be interesting to see it adjusted for opposition.

How many of Brisbane's losses under Gee were to teams currently (or finishing) above them on the ladder?
How many of them were away vs home?
Did they have him for multiple origin affected games? Even once a year over those 3 years means 3/16 games are skewed towards being a lot tougher.

It seems like it wouldn't be crazy to dig deeper and see they had him a lot for away games and often when playing strong opposition.

If most of their losses as favourites occurred with him as ref that would be pretty questionable.

The fact that stat was ever brought up is astonishing to me.

Penrith won 2 comps and made another grand final in the last 3’years.

Broncos missed the 8 twice and made one grand final

Penriths win rate is so much higher no mstter who is reffing. Penrith may have played these games against the tigers/dogs/titans etc in previous years opposed to brisbane playing them against top teams.

Whoever decided to print these stats is probably hoping andrew gee reads it and started second guessing calls against the broncos

Surely you're not saying the DT has an agenda against the Panthers?
