Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

Raiders beat the Eels in a close high scoring game but the game was really a reflection on why these two teams are amongst the worst in the NRL at the moment.

Edit: NSW team announced and I can't say I'm shocked to see Hayne and Jennings make the side despite been far from deserving of their positions in the team.

^ I think neither should have been there. I'm kinder glad the Eels got the bye, as that 2 points will help a bit. It's gonna be a long season.

Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

It was a pretty even match and QLD was the better team and deserved the win. I don't think Inglis's try was legal, I think he knocked on. Given QLD was already ahead the try didn't directly change the result in that sense and there were things NSW did that I think were more important in the result.

I thought that the game was gone when Jennings got sin binned for been a complete dickhead, but thankfully the blow out didn't happen, though it seemed to make Uate forget how to mark up with his opposite even after Jennings came back.

I will never understand why mid-game when you're back by 2 that a league captain would go for a risky penalty attempt, in union it makes sense but that's a completely different matter. That was a captaincy failure on Gallen's part and maybe a minor coaching failure that Stuart couldn't get the trainer out there to tell them to go for touch.

NSW looks close to breaking the drought, but stats tell us that given this result it is unlikely to be this year.

If the Raiders played an Under 8s team I'd bet on the under 8s. Pathetic and woeful again. I don't know how much longer until heads start to roll, and I hope it won't just be in coaching as there are players who aren't deserving of playing in the top grade at the moment.

Raiders beat a struggling Newcastle. Dugan apparently had a better game at 5/8th but I still think he's wasted there, much like Hyne is, rather than turn out to be the next Lockyer;

I'm just looking forward to this weekend's game against penrith. Didn't really look into the game against souths.

Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

I feel like I'm parroting myself, but injuries and a woeful left side defence gave the Cowboys an easy win where they didn't turn up in the second half and still won easily.

As for SOO, NSW was in this position last year and still got beaten quite severely. I'd be more confident if NSW had 2 home games instead of throwing one away to Melb. It's almost like the NSWRL doesn't want to end the drought.

I'm happy as the Eels won. Didn't look like it at some stages, but a win is a win.

NSW team announced, the big "surprise" is that Uate has been dropped for the other Morris brother. A good move given Uate's form. Some injuries concern in the forwards so the exact team is still in the air.

Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

For a second year in a row the Dragons fall in the final minutes when they looked to have beaten the Raiders and end their "hoodoo". Last year it was a last minute Dugan try and this year it was a (second) last minute try to Robinson. Both were Monday night games...spooky. Nice to have a win for a change.

Wednesday will be interesting and while I don't expect NSW to win I still hope they do.

Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

QLD makes it 7 in a row. I want to complain NSW was robbed due to one of the QLD try coming through an obstruction, but they were average for the bulk of the second half anyway and probably didn't deserve to get as close as they did in the end.

Again NSW goes for 2 points that confuses me. I'd have liked to see them go for the try that early in the game or back to back sets. Actually that's the most disappointing aspect of the series is NSWs inability to force repeat sets.

Oh well. NSW has another chance next year, but with 2 games in QLD I doubt it will happen and that it won't be until 2014 when NSW gets back on the right side of victory.

The Warriors drop another game, this time against Penrith at Mt Smart, losing 18-16. Heads are going to roll after yet another completely limp and pathetic Warriors shamefest.

Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

Finally, someone else posted so I can post again!

Raiders making a rollercoaster run for the finals and were going good win, horrible loss, but has managed to string 3 wins in a row. The first time since the end of 2010, which shows how average they have been in the last two years in terms of consistency.

People keep going on that the Bulldogs are due/need a loss and I'm hoping it comes next Friday night and the Raiders can keep the what was an unlikely dream a month ago of making it into the top 8 and maybe then the off season won't have endless speculation that Furner is going to get the boot.
