What’s the mood like up there today?
can’t imagine too many would want to talk footy!
Chad this, Chad that😆 but to be fair, Chad was always going to be the scapegoat when something like this happens, wether it his fault or not. I watched the game with a group at my B.I.L house and most of them went home at 50 . Its going to be a long week in the ville.

Yeah, conceding 66 points doesn’t fall on the 7‘s shoulders but that is funny….

Tell ya what im all for the nrl and its clubs taking games to regional zones, but **** me the stadium at coffs is not good at all, being a cricket/afl oval and setting a rectangular field up purpisely close to the western grand stand made viewing from the hills just an absolute waste of time. Would have been better off trying to get Kayo onto my apple watch.

2 gates to get into the stadium, with a good half hour plus line up to get in, theres needs to be better planning for these things.

I never wanna hear anyone complain about Shark Park again

Leicester, Sharks and Cavaliers first titles, Brazil's mens olympic soccer team first gold, Western Bulldogs after 62 years 👍🏾 good fairy-tale year 😄
There was a first in the MLB and in the ice hockey too. 2016 was the craziest year in Sports history.

Hynes is seriously overrated. He is another Moses type player, downhill skier but goes missing when the going gets tough

How come this half can’t win games from behind a beaten pack with no possession is one true mysteries of the sport

There's a long history up here of blaming anyone from NSW, when the **** hits the fan, fairly or unfairly, usually unfairly. Last season was decent so no one got the chance to stick the boot in, but how things have changed. Anyway its almost time to dig the NSW shirt out of the cupboard and sit back and watch the town implode.

I'm not sure where Newcastle's duty of care is towards Ponga. I wouldn't have thought he would be clear to come back onto the field after copping that HIA. This morning QLD ruled him out due to complications from that injury.

Could just be a nice way to “drop” him.
TBH, Walsh has clearly been head and shoulders above Ponga in terms of form this season, so I think it’s the right call based on that alone.

Yeah, it may be a smokescreen to drop Ponga. Most QLD pundits did have him in the team, though.

Good luck to Walsh but I imagine with all of NSW's back rowers they will just bomb to him all night and he will keep dropping the ball after he gets smashed. Can't see it being pretty.
