NRL Round 19 | Rugby League

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this week's episode of the NRL wrap-up, we run through the 8 games of Round 18 as well as the biggest headlines in Rugby League. We also take a look ahead at what should be an interesting Round 19.

Welcome back to the other ball podcast,another episode of the best potty going around from down under no i'm prettysure round, listening and watching i strain but thought i crack that intothe international listeners, and there was plenty of punters and dribbles out there from allover the glow. Today we will be doing more in our old chin. I've got a tirejersey on today, not sure what i felt like chucking it on actually like thisjersey. The bumble be a lot of tiger stuff to talk about today, alios withthe documentary in a big win over the broncos on the weekend, but before weget into that, we will be going through all of matches from around eighteen andall the headlines. That are, you know, breaking the news sort of at the moment.There's a lot of chat about to be a panga, jan sewer, so we'll be doingthat then we'll get into our top eights, and then we will look ahead at theround to come, won't be the longest episode this week won't be anygroundbreaking analysis or interesting. Well, they will be interestingconversation, but there won't be any you know not like last week, crotchtalked about the free adante, but there'll be something more creativecoming next week. I'm sure so it's thursday today, so there's a gametonight, but last week's thursday match was actually wasn't a third to match asorigin. Sorry, o the friday match last week, the six o'clock they by thetitans versus the eels at see a super stadium and i have to say pretty disappointingfrom the times that showed a little bit of fight at the end of the game. Ithink the feet had crossed the line and they were looking at a you know a bitof a come back, but it ended up just being a consolation. Try es were goodwithout metromover and junior paulo they're. Just you know. We expect thisfrom the eels they beat all the teams below them and struggle against theteams above them. I think phil gol put it pretty eloquently on one of thechannel and indra beleaguers, saying that they need to really like this is their bread and butterbeating the lower teams, which is really good. It always puts them in thefinals race, but now they've in the next six or seven weeks. I've reallygot to look at how they can beat some of the bigger teams, because, to behonest, i don't think i think they're a tactic of just charging the middlesdown the middle of the pitch and just offloading every time they get thechance. I don't think that is sophisticated enough strategy in itself.You can have that is sort of the base line, but then you need a lot of otherthings coming off it to be a team like panthers all the storm, who just lookincredible right now i mean to mose. This is out for a few weeks with afractured back which you didn't origin. So i have to say i wasn't a hater of his performance atall, an orge. I think he did a decent job, but to think that needed it with afracture back to me that just makes it even more impressive. So i think peoplewho are bad you man, need to just relax a little bit, but yeah go win from the heelsdisappointed for the times. I thought it was a chance for them to maybe sneakand upset two points and really put...

...themselves into the race for seventhand eighth, but yeah that that's looking a long way away now for them,especially which marforio getting into their their spinds just pretty weak. Ithas to be said: it's not one of the greatest in the competition goingaround brigson is a good player, but he's certainly not the level of youknow a gatho or a conger who are really involved in pretty much every play.Like even rice was they play more like five eighths, where brimpson sort of a bit like a full back of five years ago,who really only gets involved on occasion and he's very dangerouswhen he does don't get me wrong, but i think brinson needs to bounce back in abig way this week, because it's been pretty quiet in the last six or sevenweeks and with a new year half back this week and as tail not playing thegreatest woody of his life, i think it's going to be really reallyimportant for the titans coming into the back end of the year that he hitssome form the seagle's versus the dragons. Thisis a decent game. Actually, thirty, two to eighteen. It was just a good roundof foot. So i'm probably going to be saying that for a lot of the games arethe sea. Gles were victors in the end to win the second half for the dragonsdragons weren't too affected this week by their suspensions. Dafty was reallythe only one of no missing out, but ethesus were too good without surber,with our dc dc e still got the job done, they're all they're, just firing on allcylinders. All the katus awesome shoe star is an absolute freak like he looksso good. It will be interesting to see how his career pens out, because hereminds of lots of like type castum anything just but based off skill set. You know itlooks like a flight metao or a t rex, but they only held that level for oneor two years in their careers where, if he can do this for his full career, hecould be something we've never really seen before. The way is just sodamaging in the back row and manly look really really good. At the moment theylook like if there were a power rankings, you'd probably have to saythe third position, i think, behind the storm and panthers, even though they'reprobably not going to make the top for they're going to be pushing shit uphill. To do that, i think they are the best chancing finals to knock off. Oneof those two i prefer them to the rabbits and the heels right now so yeahthe seagulls are humming everyone's playing world for manly and the dragonsnot great just they just like a bit of creativity in that final twenty meters.I think, especially with that dufty they were struggling to create points,and nowadays eighteen points is the new six. If you know what i mean like it'sso many points at all thought that a defense was decent it. They got a bitfatigued to the end and i think, but i think both teams played a rightactually there's a pretty good game. Footy then, saturday afternoon we hadthe cowboys versus the roosters. I called i didn't think they were goingto win. I tip the roosters. I actually went perfect tipping this week. Itwasn't that hard to be honest, but i thought before kick off. Ithought maybe there would be a cowboy's...

...ambush on and it was in the first halfthe cowboys were pretty good. Everyone was just playing their part without val hones jason tamalo. Lo hada pretty good start to the game. Drink water was playing really really well.Yeah actually had a very, very good game, reminding me a bit of primebenjie marshall. At times, tommy didn't look good as well. They were making alot of lime breaks, but they just won't necessarily capitalize gonna. There wasone way tommy did and went through. All he had to do was drawn past with thefull back, but he accidentally slipped over anddropped the ball hammer. His spade was in drawling made from a very excitingshow, but ultimately the verses were just too classy stormed over the top ofthem and yeah. It was a pretty good wink to doing that. Didn't have teddytheir house were in experience with hutcheson and walker billy smith'sgreat. I talked about him in the fragant episode last week. He's ye hadto be resigned still, but he's held josh morris out of his spot this week,and that just is a bit of an ode to how well he's going. I think, he's going tobe a real star of the future. There's not many gun centers right now, as wesend the origin arena, only one of the four centers is actually a center will play center for club land, so yeah,i think he's going to be really really exciting and i think the roostersshould resign him quickly before his market value rises too much then wehave the raiders is as the shark is. This is probably the hardest game topredict all round, but the raiders continued their win string, avia savagewas the talk of the town. Have the absolutely outrageous second game outof the fullback position. Sadly thing he did is ac joint, so he's out for theyear he played through it on the wing, which was pretty impressive, but yeahhe's first, sixty minutes that fall back were really really entertainingjust past to burn just another one of these kids who just came in and cutloose, which yeah it's just really awesome to see this year. There's somany kids coming in. Fortunately, a lot of them getting injured, but that'ssort a lot. We would expect that's why kids usually don't come in on eighteenand nineteen, but yeah. He played very well given the fact that he was third stringfull back and the raiders they don't look back, certainly not back to twothousand and twenty four, but they do look like they're starting to get theball rolling a little bit. Publy e starting to play well tarpan signing toplay well styling off the benches, very, very dat dynamic. So yet they could bea little bit of a smoke to make that top eight and i wouldn't want to comeup against them just because of the caliber of player. They have i'd, butrather play you know a dragons or sharks, outfit or even the nights, buti yeah they probably are going to need some miracles to make that top abanwe'll talk about that in a little bit other sharks a little bit disappointingyou'd have to say this is a game for a team who is on the verge of the top edor in the top of eight sort of in and out every week. This is the sort ofgames they need to pick up to. You know assert a bit of a lead on theteams below them, which yeah i thought that was a missed opportunity for theshark es, but well on to camera said...

...they not. I knew this is going to needblow out. I actually thought i was going to max sixty points, so i guesswell on to the nights for keeping it to a fort yard, but the storm are justincredible like they're, just freaks like they genuinely make seventy metersevery set with ease like even without a line break they just somehow make fiftymeters of play. Drome hughes was incredible. Everyone's talking aboutneco hinds, i actually thought jerome was better than neco. To be honest, ithought high and just got on the end of a few plays, but like pappy dude at theside of the year, but oh yeah, hugh, is incredible. Monster were starting to look like themonster of old brandon smiths, just playing incredible foot as well, allthe fords doing that job or the outside backs doing their job just in alms agun. And yet it's going to be to be honest right now, the panthers. I knowthey're not full strength right now, but they look a long way off and that'ssaying something because they are lookingvery varied with themselves. Sothe storm just look like they're, going to be impossible to chase down the factthat they have not even full strength right now. This week, they're restingthree origin players and they're, probably still going to win by fortypoints. It's going to be interesting to see when they're all together, becausethat's a lot of players to get bored introits take it to have to say,because papa auson has talked about being better than to desca the sad bear,but i would actually play neco hinds up full back for the rest of the year andi'd have papin haus and off the bench. I don't know. I just wouldn't want totinker too much with what's been working for them, so l, i know papahousen was great at the state of the year and the storm are great duringthat period, but yeah i just wouldn't want to tinker with this, especiallywith monster not really dominating right. Now i think, having another i'llsay: hans is better ball player than papias and puposes, probably a bit moredamaging runner. So i'd say right now, when months is on the greatest form, iwould actually say: hynes is the benefit of the team. It also allows usto just run more where, as when happen, hous and plays he sort of has to ballplay a bit more, but if base gets back to his full peak, then i can see thembringing papanasam again and hides off the bench, but yeah it's going to bestiff for whoever has to cop that bench, spot harry grant's, probably going tobe playing off the bench as well for the rest of the season. So yeah, it'sjust your ridiculous. The fact like you can't even hate it. I want to hate thestorm, but they're so good to watch their culture seems awesome. They seemlike such a likable group of guys to be honest and yeah just well on to thehigher ups of the storm. The fact that that whole team is under the salarycats, impressive and yeah they've just created another generation of absolutestars or worried, and the nights are pretty disappointing. It has to saythey were without metre piece but, like i don't metopic is a good player, butit's e- and i know ponga exited the game early withconcussion, but the impact pies has on...

...their team is ridiculous. Like he's notthat good. That he's, like a forty point, difference like i know he mightbe a game manager and all that stuff, but yeah they've just got to find a wayto be better without peers. They can't be relied on having all of their starsin the team a one to even be competitive. I know the storm are greatand i've just talked about how good they are, but for a team i thinkthey're run the hundred and seventh and eight they're going to start liftingthis week, because who knows how long peers will be out for but yeah they'vegot to start talking up someone's even were not folk strength because rightnow they they just struggled a show grit. I think, when they're under thepump they sort of give up a little bit but yeah it of no brian seriously underthe pump i watch a podcast with a nights fan and he hates adam o'brien'sgot so yeah, we'll see how they go for the rest of the year. Next up we had the worries and pantheasthe first sunday game and i felt so bad for the warries. He up thought theycame out really really strong. They conceded a charge down, try to kick outwho, i'll be honest, i think kick ow's one of the most overrated players inthe competition he's good, but the likes. I can't remember who thesilence tated was, but he was saying things like kick out s like the prior,like the best player in their forward pack and stuff like this, and to mehe's like probably lucky to be starting over la martin, i think lear man's abetter player and if he wasn't like six foot eight, i don't think it'd be agood football and is just use more as a decoy which you know, everyone has toserve a role in the team, but fresas me a little bit how much people go onabout him because yeah, i don't know but yeah, i felt really bad for theworries. I thought they looked really really good. They were trying somethingnew with two of us shack at six nicaria off the bench, but their plans quicklygot disrupted dick and ran two of us. A shecco and cost very, very earlynicaria was forced to play. Then injuries, just preceded harris went off,egan went off and by half time they were without a bench, and i have to say:there's got to be something done about this. It doesn't happen too often. Soit's not a pressing issue, but i think in the off season there needs to be atweaking of the sub rule. I think ye fl has a out a different sport, but the albrough in the sub all this year and i think it's worked pretty well and yeah. I just think this is currentmedical sub situation, where they can only play if you get three concussions,which just never happens, or i think the other way is ifsomething gets simmin or sent off and your injuries result of their foul play. Ithink you can get subbed on then, but it's like there's just got to be a way.Like i m. I know we are scared of teams using the rule tojust basically have a fifth player on the bench, but yeah. It's got to besomething done because if that happens in a semi final or a grand final, wherea team goes down to no bench like that's just going to be tragic scenesand it's pretty bloody hard to win a game, a forty with no bench and thenthe other big story line coming out of this home. Is the cane evans arm thing?...

Look it's just stupid, like i don'treally know. What's in the head, my like yeah, it's just a stupid thing towrite on a bolo for the game, but yeah. Not really that thing i do. I don'tthink you should get like banned or fine and just tell him not to do itagain. I'd say just a bit strange to the whole situation: bronchos west tigers, next mighty tigesgot up. My dad was pretty stored with the performance, but after saturdaylike it was it was a win, but i don't think it was anything special. I doe init five a incredible he's. Just he's a gun like he is. Actually he reminds meso much of jack whiton when jack, lien's, humming and yeah. I think there's a lot ofpromise of the tigers and i think this documentary will be good for the tigers.Culture like as in the news around the tigers, has been negative for a longtime and i think it's documentary might help shape it to be a little bit morepositive because i actually do think there's some positive signs at thetiges tofino looked great he's only twenty years old tookey simkins lookedreally really good on dab off the bench. He i think he's nineteen the center whodebuted he looked decent and he had a real crack. Told me till i look decentin the senators yeah dey was all tomate. Six i'll tell you what i think brooksee seriously is under rat, like i think he gets so much stick. I thinkwe've seen in the last few years. It's just really hard to be a half back in ashit team and i think, any time the forwards, given some run forward. Ithink books he really plays really well, and it makes me feel for, like i callflanigan at the dogs and sides like that, it's just really hard to be acreative half when your teams not moving freely where you know the storm,it's pretty hard to look bout as a half in that team. Although those hubs arereally good players, a bee do he was incredible to such adamaging ball runner at his height and his way and his pace. It's a dangerouscombination to be having it. The five eight position and i understand whythey moved about to center, but for me, just has to touch the ball more. So ithink five eights good i'd like to see the bombs return. We saw them earlieron in the season and they were really really good string to the bow of the tiger's attack.You know when there's not been a great set when you're on the back foot themeto just put up a bomb, and you know sort of have a fifty fifty chance ofthe full back dropping it. I think he needs to start doing that again. Ithink they've sort of given brooks all the kicking as a bit of a symbolicthing that he runs the team but yeah. I can't see why do we can't chuck up a foview at the half way line? The broncoes were disappointing in the first half,they were pretty good a bit yer second half was and good enough. They justthought this hagis running over them scored about thirty six points. I thinkin that second half, which is in god and yeah, the look, the broncos it's atroubling time right now for the broncos they're, letting a lot ofplayers go they're, looking to sign a lot of players. So at the moment ithink we just got to way and see with thebroncoes they're not going to be good the rest of the year and we'll see howthey go next year,...

...probably too early to call kevinwalters judge him as a coach ridiculous. Sothey let race walsh, go. I know testing, you looks to be a good player, showedscience on the weekend in the first half, especially, but had a bit of ashocking second half and yeah just broncos. I don't know it's a toughsituation. It just doesn't look good gamble players with good aggression. Heis one of the few places shows good passion. Stags didn't get the ballenough. I thought, and the commentators kept talking about it and he thought hewas up against a debutant in sennin, so they would just throw it to him all thetime like the blues did to turbo and the trail in origin, but he hardlytouched the ball so yeah disappointing from the bronx goodwine for the tigs and the tides believe no sort of stay in the hunt for theeight, which is remarkable, considering how badly viewed their season has been andthen finally, the rabos bordon actually didn't watch this game in full honestyi was a bit run, beleagued out of it by sunday, six o'clock. I did, however,watch the lock and lewis thing. I was legit just watching that two minuteperiod and that's what i saw it was pretty funny like did potablecost his team, the game, the dog to the lost by eight, which was impressive. Ithought the rabbit as would tear the map, but i yeah a little bitdisappointing from the rabos not putting away a sod like the dogsfrustrating for the dogs they've, starting to rack up a lot of honorablelosses, which is never a good thing for a team. When you get close, you want toconvert them into winds, but he ho, like a top for team in the rabbitoyou'll, probably take an eight point: loss over sixty point loss. That's forsure i but yeah the lucky lot thing is. It was funny. I can't even lie ad usome hysterics in my living room, stupid thing to des avidly. Send me inbut yeah it was a bit of. It was pretty funny good to see. I actually thinkhe's an under rate, a player. I think he could be a good player in the futureif he is in the right situation. He plays with passion, and you know it's abit of a brave had but a welli, i'm all right. Moving on to the tigersdocumentary that aid on fox league on monday, i yeah really enjoyed it. I have to saythe it's really like quality stuff. Actually, it's obviously not a netflixdocumentary, but it's pretty body close and yeah. I'm just really excited forthe rest of the series, i'm not sure how long it goes for we've been tryingto work this out of my family, because the camera seem to still be at thegames, but i yeah, i think it's going to pain. Ithought this before the documentary think i mentioned it last week. I thinkit's going to pay. Imagine a really really good picture as a lot of thesedocumentaries. Do i know if r you, the fl coaches came out of it, looking very,very good and yeah, i think madge will come out of it.Will i think brook sea might come out of it. Well, if he keeps that you knowhalf time leadership talk kind of going interested to see what other storylinesdevelop. I have to say so far the one question mark for we just to pasco,don't think he covered himself in glory in that first episode. That quote about,i know what he was trying to say, but...

...he just did not say it well and itdidn't come across well when he said so. He was trying to say, like nothingphases me like in a stress situation, i'm cool on calm, i'm composed, butit's sort of thing. It sounds like he doesn't care like when things are going bad, hedoesn't care, but yeah. So, like i don't know, i'myet to see about just in pasco sort of gives off of a bit of a weird via can'tlie like that. He gets around the players and stuff, and you know justwears apollo show as a post as suit, but yeah we'll see, jury still all anher. The leadership did all the body nice one by joining their dad saying hemight put the table next door to them next time they have one of thosebeatings, but yeah really intrigued to see how it goes. James tamer looks likea good leader of the field, which i always thought he was going to bebecause what he provides on fold probably not deserving a captaincy, soyeah, i excited to see the rest of it. Really it's going to be a great series.It's a shame. We have to wait like three weeks for the next episode, butall well just really honor, i don't know, sounds very over the top. It'svery honor and lucky to have my team be the subject, i'm sure all n r l fansare interested in it, but it's probably a lot more interesting when tarantineso yeah, just very lucky to be in that position and then two big signingscoming out of this week, jane saw a song with the dragons, which washeavily expected, pretty sure it's just for next season. You felt out a favorite. The dragons,interestingly, i think, is a very, very good player talked about him in thefree ages. Last week he was my number one fridge and left on the table. I think it's a better signing for thedragons than some of the ones that ve been rumored to make. You know he'syoung dragons, often son, a lot of old players, which i mean thinks a greatmove, especially when their teams just older in general and they're, notreally anywhere near a premises ip window. So i think so was a better stepin the right direction, probably good, like tyson frazil replacement.Realistically, i think the josh co experiment in the back row has beeninteresting and but wouldn't say, it's really worked to be honest and thinkhe's a back rower. I think the future yeah, so we can definitely lock downone of those edge back ros spots for the for the forsee future ess to workon his attacking game. I'd have to say is one of the least impactful backrowers in terms of attack. Defense is great one of the best tacklingtechniques in the game, but you need to see a bit more an offense and then thebig story is to be the pan guy, some of the bulldogs and before then he's goingto the panthers. I have to say i disagree with it things like i'm, not going to say deinteresting signing for the bardo. I must leave it at their interest, seewhat role they play him in and how he goes there. It's always had greatpotential, but never really been able to consistently unlock it up thebronchos but yeah. I don't agree with this panther stuff. I was saying to mydad. I just don't one thing: i don't agree with it and this isn't like apanther's attack. This is a rural attack. I don't agree that they areallowed to. So what happens is let's...

...say, pangas on six hundred thousanddollars because he's only going to the panthers, for i don't know thirtypercent of the season. They only have to pay thirty percent ofthe six hundred k contract. So then they have to pay like. I don't know ahundred and eighty k or something that's just an example. I don't knowwhat he's earning and how long his back actually going to be there. But so whathappens? Is the panthers only get the cap hit? If i'm, if i'm not mistaken, the panters onlyget a cap it of about a hundred and eight k, as opposed to what he's reallyworth, which is like six hundred seven hundred eight hundred k. So, ultimately,you could just sign a lot of players in the last couple weeks of the transferwindow, who are worth a lot more but you're only realistically paying themabout a third of what they're worth as in that's the only cap yet like youcould leave a million dollars in your car and then come july. You could justbuy five players with eight hundred k, like that, doesn't make sense to meam.I i don't know if i'm the only one who doesn't really cop that yeah, becauseall of a sudden you could get you can build a super team in july. If you justleft and count face at the start of the year. I know like there's risk withthat. You want to use all your cap space, so you have a good team duringthe season, but yeah like i was just thinking about it. Like imagine. I knowthey don't need them at all, but, like imagine, if i don't know the stall andhad in an extra to a o, ka laying around and then brought back cameronsmith, like that's the sort of for only two under k, but yeah, it's the onlything. I don't agree with it. Some people are saying you know it's a bitsoft to go to a promise. Ship contender going from last or prime should contendor like it's a business at the end of the a y can't really bag him out forthat, but i yeah interested sees impact. I didn't really think, therefore, wardpack with somewhere, where they needed a fix, but fish harris is likely in themiss two to three weeks through his partner giving birth. So apparently,that's a big reason why they're doing it i'll be interested to see if he starts or if he's just going to be abench player. I think it's just going to be a bench player but yeah very,very interesting dealings there. I have to say right top of my predicted topeight. My changes to my top at pretty minimal. Believe it or not, there'sactually been a change in the roosters position, so i'm just going off theladder predictor and each week it updates the ram result. So the latteralters a little bit so this week i just logged into it before and the roostershave actually jumped up to. Fourth, which is i don't really don't know if iagree with it, but i'll back in my predictions, ell stay at fifth and segars drop tosixth- i don't know about that. I don't know the sea was right. I didn't thinkit was too bad and they're in really good form. I know the eels runs hard,so that's why i've gotten dropping out at fifth. Maybe the sea, als or toomany games back by thought, seagulls and rousers were on similar points. Soyeah that's interesting and then i've sir got the night and it seventh,despite the disappointing loss to the storm- and i have a new eighthcontender- i've dropped this sharke out...

...because i must have predic them to bethe raiders and i've brought in the dragons. Interestingly, who didn't winthemselves, but obviously got them winning more games in the in the restof the season than the sharki and then so just wesen. The eight i've got thetitans missing out on points difference in night. Then i got the sharks. Wesing out on points difference and ten, and then i've got the mighty tidesmissing out on by two points in eleven. So it's going to be really really typefor seventh and eighth and it's going to be really really tight for third andfourth in the top. For so there's a lot to look forward to. Obviously it lookslike with basically know who's going to make the grand final, but way in lackof primis rabbit os for finals. The seagulls look really really good. Whoknows the eels could come steaming home with this sort of latest kick in thebutt from the media, so yeah, i'm just really excited to see the rest of theseason. To be honest, after a great round of forty, i'm sort ofreinvigorated in it again all right. This weekend we have the fullcomplement of eight games or being played in queensland, i'm pretty sureso, spread across the sunshine coast goldcorp and north queensland. First uptonight, we've got the eel is as the rades interesting game on paper, butunfortunately it's probably not that interesting. I don't think it's goingto be that interesting most. This is out of the fractured back. As imentioned, blake ferguson returns to the first grade team for he's donestaff, but unfortunately, on the flip side of the coin, for the raid is therewithout jack wine and zava savage, it's pretty disappointing, just as the raiders seemed to pickingup a bit of steam, one goes out with the room. Injury savage goes out. Theacy join injury yeah and it's pretty deflating for the rangers you'd have tosay. I don't think jordan reparer is the greatest fall back. I just don'tthink he's dynamic enough, but he'll give a red hot crack, i'msure, and then i don't think matt for allin sam williams and the haves reallystrikes me with any fear but we'll see and the eels yeah. Look they one with our moses lastweek, so i'm sure that'll win again. I'm the line is fifteen and a half ontipping the eels by twelve. I think it might be a lost lowish scoring affair so yeah, i guess in terms of the linei'm going. The raid is to cover it, but yeah i'm going the eels on head to headriches nights the friday six o'clock game, not about six o'clock game forfriday. Actually, teddy and takahe return for the roosters josh morris hasbeen dropped. Really interesting just shows i talked about it before butshows how much faith they have. Billy smith, daniel sipe saso, to return tothe night's forward pack and bicol piece is still out. The line is elevenand a half in favor of the roosters i'll. Take the roses out the line andhad to head. I've got the roosters by sixteen points. Yeah. Hopefully, the night put up asfive, but what we've seen in the last six weeks with out ps, yeah just hasn'tmean convincing and ouve, hopefully...

...pong his back he's got to pass hisconcussion rodach. There's a few. This week we have to pass concussionprotocols right now: m r shooing they all pass, but there might be some lateout so stay tuned for that cowboys v storm is the prime tamen friday nightjesus. It's just clocked to me that that's prime time, friday, jeez, that's not pretty, but anyway,hama is out, potentially for the season. After getting his appendix removed inemergency surgery, papanasam returns to the bench for the storm at a cart welchand the sole salmon are back for the storm monster. Kafue and finucan havebeen arrested, groupe johnsonate, five n eight line is twenty eight and a halftowards the storm. I'm going the store by thirty. The cowboys don't usually get blown out,so i was tempted to say like the storm by twenty, but it is the storm the endof the day, so yeah gon saw by thirty then saturday afternoon, rabbitswarrors. This could be a good game, actually tam changes. Man saw and jackson poloreturn on the wings with alt johnston in june and a mile dropping to thebench arrow returns to the bench after his co breach suspension, nicaretareturns at six after having a brief into off the bench just to buna isgoing to replace waiting, egan, hookah and roger is concussed and he's notplaying the line of seventeen and a half e got the rabbit os to cover thatand win by twenty yeah. It's going to be interesting to see how the rabbits come out not great onthe weekend. This is the time where they usually start to ramp it up. Justbefore finals been it usually starts getting them going about now. So it'sgoing to be interesting, the trails back, obviously from orge, and so itwill be interesting to see if we really see the wheels start to get into motionhere now, because they've got to go soon, otherwise, they're looking a longway off, seagle, veste tigers. Look pretty scared for this can't evenlie disappointing because we look in decentform- and this is after this game. We've got a stretch of four winnablegames, but yeah. I just don't have any faithagainst this one: the sea gulls. I don't think there are a good match upfor us. The way they're playing right now pretty much the fact that they wouldn'tattack a week. Can it je bo and all i also are returning as aturbo and dc not ide, or to see all i there, because i don't really want him havingpleasure of beating us, but anyway, the sea guls. The line is agen and a halfi'll be barking or part of me. Sorry, that's really poor form for me i'll, beback in the sea, als by thirty yeah. I just i can see like. I think we'llschoole points because we're a good attack and they're an interesting defense but yeah. I just think noll score a lot ofpoints conceiving fifty to twenty or something like that.

But yeah not not came to that one. Butthe tigers go on and change, which is, you know, good seat, some confidence inthe light up, pathis bronco's saturday night, prime time drome i named to makehis comeback. Matt burtsef to the centers from the six and brent neddrops out to the reserves, and it's been a teal season for bran na and youhave to feel for it. But you'll be off to the doge sext year line is nineteenand a half of the penches away. I've gone panthers by thirty and theyweren't that convincing on the weekend haven't been that convincing of late atall. Actually i know there without their halves on the weekend, but arcanecould bounce back in a big way here, not sure if it's being played at suncalled because that would obviously fay over the broncos but yeah. I reckonthey bird back. I would be with oh sorry that i s shot out from me yoninduring a potty, but anyway i'm pumped. I don't know why i'm yawning, i thinkit's because i'm not breathing and i'm locking enough ox deam anyway, dragonstins. Actually the pathos broncos might be. Oh no! No! No! I was going to say itmight be sunday night, but this thursday, this as a game this week. Soit's only two on sunday, dragons titans corio on to sove suspension this weekfor the poor thing, jane salvan, to play five, eight, which is actuallyinteresting. I have to say dragons one of the least interesting teams to watch.In my opinion, this is not much x factor, but jane salvan will give ussomething to watch. He was really really good in the trial games, buthe's going to play this year. Actually i thought that was something bibe. Iwas getting out of the preseason, but he hasn't got a look in so far sointerested to see how he goes. Dufty comes back in at the fullback position.Adam clunes been named on the bench. I don't know if you'll be playing hook oor he might come on for salvin who knows jack birdsbeen shifted from the centers to the back row. I think it's like he's a hundredth gameor something some sort of milestone. Toby sexton is going to debut for thetimes at a half back, don't know anything about him. If i'm completelyhonest, hopefully, is a good player. Obviously jamal forey broke his hand. Ithink, and then me train places an injured, aaron clark at hookah. Theline has the tites by four and a half interested to see that i'm going thedragons by six, so i've got the dragons covering the line in a big way and alsowinning the game. I should be an interesting one, though, tounpredictable sides. The times have the firepower to beat the dragons, but ijust don't trust their hearts enough to get thejob done. I don't know, though toby sexton could be a gun and then finallybollop sharks, as so the bulldogs are in the second sunday lot more oftenthan not, but marshal king returns at number. Nine royce hunt is like ben aplays first game for the sharke's for the year, and tom has bad for a week.The line is shocks by eleven and a half, and i'm actually back in the bardo tothe line. I've got the shark winning, but just ten. I think the boy dogs lovea scrap they like to keep games close and the sharks. They are in good form.A few weeks ago, for the last couple weeks, the vitabit of a road bump, soyeah we'll see how they go, but i don't...

...think i can't they might put astatement victory on, but i can't see them pumping the doggies. I then thedoggies are in a good reniform. Actually they're grinding out results,that'll, be it for another week of the potty around nineteen n rl episodesbeen good good energy. This episode, i reckon it's been fin's, been enjoyableho geron enjoy the tigers, documentary on behalf of a tiger's fan and yeah. Hopefully, every one enjoyedthe week that was and the week that will be because yeah, it's been areally really good. Couple weeks in rupy league the games look back to anexciting. You know brand of footy, it's not big schools, but you know thoseclose games. It exciting this high scoring games for this week in thetipping. I have to say one of the easy weeks and tipping. Imight come back and regret this, but it looks like the first six games arepretty obvious times: dragons bullock, sharks is maybe the only parts where alittle bit of you know. Differences lie but yeah.Hopefully, good luck to e run in tipping this week. I've enjoyed myselfreally looking forward to another round of foot, especially in lock down. It's going to be interesting to seewhether i watch the olympics or the foot, but i do love my forte, but yetenjoy the olympics, enjoy the forty stay safe and thanks for tuning in a.
