Dessys gonna be arrested for homicide at half time. Manlys completion rate is 2 from 7. One of the two was the runaway try. It doesnt seem that wet or dewy out there, so **** knows whats going on.

If Marty wants to run like this every week he can come join his brother next year.

Multi is already fucked for this weekend after last night
I tipped Manly.

Wasn't super confident they'd win but I think Melbourne are a bit of a myth this year. Great attack but their defence must be a massive concern for Bellamy.

Melbourne are a very different team without Munster, that's for sure.
Still, if Paps hits top speed they've got a handy spine that'll deal with most of the riff-raf. It wouldn't be enough to knock off Penrith though.

I hear you. They seem happy enough to win 42-28 each week and paper over their defence. Doesn't help them when their points dry up with Munster, Grant and Paps out at various times. They'll need to fix it to win a comp, for sure.

I agree with you, no one is going to beat Penrith in the big dance anyway.

Our only chance it that Cleary's chin gets so big that he physically can't carry his head around any more. Might not happen until the 2023 season though

Munster def makes a difference, they definitely aren't as strong this year though and they are loosing a lot of experience in the forwards next year. I think they will become a bit easier to beat over the next few years, but prob still be a top 8 side.

They will be fine in the forwards as long as Welch comes back from the Achilles injury without to much trouble. Between him, Nelson, King, Tui and Tepai I'm sure Bellamy will make it work.

Sims will slot straight into the second row, probably with some bloke I've never heard of who will be their best player all year.

They definitely have a tendency to make something out of not much. Don’t think anybody thought King could have a season like this before this year.
