Have you ever seen a perfect game from a ref?
Likewise, I can understand with the season the Reds have been having, after so much chat in the pre-season of blitzing the conference, it is easier to blame the referee than to look inwardly.
Two can play at that game RO.
I'd prefer to focus on the positives.
Both sides are struggling in 2017 but put on a cracking performance full of intent and passion. It was the best Oz derby in a long time.
Oh god I'm not saying Manly will definitely win. More that Scott's take that the Broncos won't lose again before Origin might not have taken into account some critical factors.
But in any case I'll be at Suncorp for the double-header. The Storm v Titans game also an intriguing battle given recent form.
Always an enjoyable read SP.
One thing that stood out for me though was your take on the Broncos upcoming schedule. And in particular the fact that you believe their game against Manly in 2 weeks is "in the bag".
Now I'm loathe to compare results against similar teams given changes in tactics, conditions, personnel etc. But seeing as they occurred in consecutive weeks a look at the Broncos and Manly's recent results against Souths indicates that the Broncos won't have it all their own way. A lot of their points have come from Jimmy the Jet (8 tries - leading the NRL), and he's out for a month. That's a significant blow to their right edge. And strike power in general.
This is no lay down misere for the Broncos. But I'm more than happy for Manly to continue to fly under the radar.
