he did though
Would you agree that SJ is probably the greatest flat track bully we've seen in recent times? In good part due to way he's responded when he's not having success?

Apart from Blayke, of course. That goes without saying (for the thousandth time).

There's something for your show. Top 5 flat track bullies.

Who? Not this season he isn't

V panthers lost 6-18 at magic round
V broncos lost 22-26 in NZ
V storm lost 22-30 away
V raiders they beat 36-14 away
V Sharks beat us twice
V eels they beat them 46-10 away but without Eels first choice 6,7,9
V rabbits lost 6-28 at home
V cows they beat twice but before they found any form
V knights beat them round one at home but lost 22-34 away
They are 4-2 against the 8 sides below that

I guess if you count us and Canberra as top teams, both going decent*

*obviously our issues are well publicised

So if us and Canberra are top teams then sure
more games than we have won, flogged a team above them and he was easily best on ground

In a completely dominant Warriors team across the park. Maybe even their best ever. I don't think there is anything but a flat track right now, with their forwards dominating and backs firing.

he has beaten a top 4 team lad

shhhhhhhhhh now
Where was he when they lost to the 14th place Roosters twice? Or got soundly beaten by understrength rabbitohs two games after they beat the Raiders. Warriors are going well but they aren't massively more consistent at threatening the top 8 than we are - except, you know, against us.

With their sets making the most meters of any NRL side it's a pretty flat track for Johnson to play some nice attacking football, which has always been his best asset. Yeah he playing well in other areas too, but he doesn't have it especially hard right now.
Egan and Lussick have looked pretty good on that nice flat track

same place brailey is - no where to be seen

but id take him over all our halves not named nicho at the moment, and over most halves in the comp
So he is a flat track bully then?

Certainly with you on the second line, he's in great form right now and def better than Moylan or Trindall.

flat tracks are mid teams that beat below them, he lost to a team below them, twice as you say

he has beaten a team above, so no, not a flat track
