'They strangled us': Penrith squeeze life out of depleted Storm in Magic bash up

I remember when it was safe for you take your kids to a game. I even attended games at Redfern oval with friends in my early teens without adult supervision. Sadly, those days are long gone and THIS is why.

WATCH: New vision emerges of disgraceful Magic Round crowd brawl

Typical Souths post Adam Reynolds. Get a comfortable lead and put the cue back in the rack and coast to the finish line. Or go behind early and go belly up and give up.

The Bunnies ended up with a 79% completion rate compared to the Warriors 82% and 11 errors to the Warriors 9. So the losing side had better ball control.

Still, cue ball Cummins and the bunker did their best to keep the Warriors in the game with a 7 – 3 penalty count favouring the Redcliffe Kiwis. They doubled down with a ridiculous sin-bin call on Damien Cook when Shaun Johnson had a clear play at the ball and stuffed it. If Walsh had arrived earlier they would only gave gotten in each others way.

For anyone arguing my view of that sin-bin call go back to my comments about Jerome Luai last year against the Bunnies in the qualifying semi-final who tripped Jaydn Su’A late in the game and he wasn’t even penalised.

The Warriors also had 660 kicking metres to Souths 567 metres with a meagre 53% kick diffusals for Souths to the Warriors poor 67%. #SouthsCan’tKick

I blame Dumbo Big Ears for all of the above. At least he listened to my advice about switching Campbell Graham to left centre and bringing Jaxson Paulo back.

But he still managed to stuff that up with Souths playing to their right attacking edge for 80% of the game despite the success Souths had on their left attacking edge every time AJ touched the ball.

Also Dumbo Big Ears put Paulo into right centre instead of on the right wing like I suggested. Paulo gives Souths a lot of merres with back field carries and is a far better finisher than Milne. Sure Milne scored a couple of tries but they were fairly regulation tries with no great difficulty involved.

Ilias bombed one try and almost bombed another. His kicking game is still sub-par even for schoolboy football and he couldn’t organise a chook raffle.

For those who think I am being a bit harsh on a young rookie compare Ilias’s kicking game and organisational skills with Adam Reynolds at this point of his career in 2012.

Ilias was thrown into first grade beforevhe was ready. Despite the fact I have never rated Kodi Nikorima I still think Souths would do better swapping Nikorima with Ilias and bring Ilias off the bench to blood him into first grade.

'The nerves got bad': Souths survive miracle Warriors comeback to cling on to crucial victory

Souths were absolute rubbish today giving up on the second half and putting the cue back in the rack 40 mins early as usual. Pathetic effort defensively.

Brisbane are back: Reynolds inspires Manly mauling as Broncos underline finals credentials

Adam Reynolds played better than Nathan Cleary tonight. He put on an absolute clinic!

Watching Adam Reynolds carving up Manly tonight all I could think about was how badly I want to strangle the life out of Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly.

And I thought Souths 32 – 12 loss to the Broncos Last week was embarrassing. Oh, the humanity!

I can hardly argue with that on current form. At present the Sharks are justifiably a top 4 side and the Bunnies are deservedly out of the top 8.

'We’re not dying wondering': Sharks go into attack mode after Kennedy send-off to embarrass Warriors

Again, I ask the same question I asked when Souths beat a 12-man Manly side last week… HOW does a 13-man side allow a 12-man side to score 22+ points? At least Souths scored 40 points with the extra man. What is the Warriors’ excuse for only scoring 10 points in 80 mins with a one-man advantage?

'We’re not dying wondering': Sharks go into attack mode after Kennedy send-off to embarrass Warriors

The tackle got what it deserved, to be brutally honest. Will Kennedy isn’t a dirty player, but that has always been a send-off. Even the Bulldogs’ Peter Kelly got sent off in the first tackle of the game against the Souths from the kick-off in the ANZAC Day game in 1986.

You are on crack Jenny if you seriously think the Broncos have a shot at a top 4 finish. 😂

The Broncos will miss out on the top 8 or finish 8th and get knocked out of the finals in week 1.

Souths will still make the top 8 once Latrell Mitchell returns and Souths sort out the right starting 17. They have blown their chance of a top 4 finish though I fear.

Are the Rabbitohs going to make the eight?

The Blues can do the same thing with Newcastle. 😛

'A lot of people think I’m Australian, I’m definitely not!': Herbie to state England case at Magic Round

Re your; “Gunfight at the Ugg Boot Corral” LOVE IT!” comment on the Live blog…

That’s my name for BlueBet Stadium, Penrith… “the Ugg Boot Corral”.

Since the Panthers fortunes have changed in the last 2 years sales for Panthers jerseys have gone up 87%. On the flipside sales for flannelette shirts have dropped by 87%.

Ugg boots sales haven’t changed but there are reports of a massive increase in dentistry in Greater Western Sydney, especially in dental veneers, as more and more Panthers fans flock to Panthers home games to have their photos taken with the Panthers.

Unfortunately, the majority of Panthers fans can only make it to home games as their Corrective Services electronic monitoring ankle bracelets don’t allow them to leave the Penrith area. 😛

Don’t worry Herbie. I’m sure that Billy Slater will find a loophole to declare you are a QLDer if they need you in Origin.

Lancashire, England… That’s in QLD! 😂

'A lot of people think I’m Australian, I’m definitely not!': Herbie to state England case at Magic Round

No, MMW. Ilias didn’t do alright. He looked lost. He looked just as lost when he put himself in a poor position (too close to the defensive line) when Souths needed him to take a match winning field goal against the Tigers.

I blame the coach for throwing the kid in the deep end without introducing him gradually off the bench. It was too soon for that to happen last year. This year would have been ideal if only Adam Reynolds was still at the club.

Souths now have no organising HB and no kicking game. I am not holding my breath that recent signing Kodi Nikorima will do anything to improve the situation either.

Blake Solly (South Sydney CEO) should have kept his head in the boardroom and out of player retention and recruitment. As things stand the ship is sinking and he is the one who put blew a hole in it.

The Guru has nothing to say about the hoodoo I alluded to. 😛

Mahoney is an exceptional hooker/dummy half. Such a pity then that Mahoney’s career is set to derail on the same tracks that brought the careers of Addo-Carr and Burton to a screeching halt.

As long as Barrett is top dog at Belmore and calling the shots I fear the Bulldogs will become the graveyard for promising careers and the final destination for disappointed hopes.

roll in…

I’m blaming either FTS or AC for that. Others do, sovwhy can’t I? 😛

Are the Rabbitohs going to make the eight?

The Eels may have the wood on the Panthers and the Storm but the Eels still have a hoodoo against Souths. (Trigger word for Tony).

However, given the current situation relative to both clubs I fear that the Eels hoodoo against the Rabbitohs is about to become a hoo-don’t. This year under Dumbo Big Ears and the Roosters mole  Souths CEO slippery Solly Souths have sunk to a five-year low.

But if Latrell Mitchell can return by round 15 from his overseas jaunt to the USA visiting Disneyland and Las Vegas and he hasn’t eaten his own weight during his all expenses paid vacation, Souths might yet have a chance of continuing their hoodoo over the Eels. What are the chances of that I wonder given the mystical power of “the hoodoo”?

Is that you old mate (Angry Eagle)? Like Souths burying a 12-man Manly side last week? 😂 😂 😂

That’s just Guestie’s privilege, I guess. Along with hiding in the shadows and no comment history to pin their reputation to.

Just hand me the axe Col and stand well clear. 😛

Are the Rabbitohs going to make the eight?

Congrats Eels fans. For a moment there I thought the Eels were going to blow it when they turned the ball over early in the tackle count pressing the Panthers on their line. Then after a 95 metre drive down field and a converted Try eveything seemed set for a 2 point field goal until Nathan Cleary cracked like Humpty Dumpty.

It was a great game, finals quality and head and shoulders above the rest as match of the round. It was fantastic to see the Eels knock over the Panthers at home in front 21,000 overly confident Panthers supporters who couldn’t believe their team’s winning streak was over.

Good to see the good guys bury the villains in the Gunfight at the Ugg Boot Corral.

Was your bunion right about the Bunnies last night DPS? Because if it was I’ll cut the bl00dy thing off! 😛

Turn Battle of the West into a true battle: How Parramatta can stop the Panthers' streak

Not in the last two years he wasn’t. This year may be another story though. Staggs is not proving any more consistent and Graham ran for over 100 metres last night in a woeful team effort.

He can be just as effective on the wing as well so he has versatility. Personally I would move him to left centre to setup AJ. Sure Souths would have a pretty ordinary right edge but I’m thinking of the points that will role in once Souths lethal left edge is restored to it’s former glory.

Even better if Latrell was moved to left centre. If only Souths had a better option than Latrell for FB.

Are the Rabbitohs going to make the eight?

You summed up my thoughts perfectly. That is the dilemma Souths are facing. Strengthen one position and weaken another.

I was just as upset with Roosters mole Souths CEO Blake Solly letting Dane Gagai leave the club as I was about the Adam Reynolds fiasco. Both players were key figures in Souths success last year.
