Good conversational topic.
The 2 players I wouldn’t want tackling me are Justin Olam and Apisai Koroisau.
They aim to hurt.

From the workhorse to the heavy hitter: The NRL’s best defenders

Referees and GA in particular, would get far greater support and empathy from the league public if they de mystified the technology used in decisions, the processes and channels they must comply with (short explanatory video on their web page), and putting all the lesser known rules especially those that have recently created angst into the official rule book.

Without this people will understandably / justifiably continue to believe decisions are being invented on the run.

NRL News: Norman faces ban for 'doing a Hopoate', Knights lack leaders, Hunt re-signs, Finch pleads guilty

It’s a position you need to be able to sustain weekly kicks to the teeth and get yourself up for each Monday.. good luck to him.

NRL News: Norman faces ban for 'doing a Hopoate', Knights lack leaders, Hunt re-signs, Finch pleads guilty

My understanding is the game ended when Feagai’s ball carrying arm hit the ground in the tackle, which was the exact moment the bunker called ‘time’ in Gee’s ear.
That was it, no more play.

CHN could still be out there laying on him and it wouldn’t matter, hit the ground in tackle ( if nothing criminal in that tackle) game over.

In all probability it still would’ve happened but they didn’t need the officials butting in putting an asterisk next to it.

Manly's finals hopes die with a whimper as Titans grab first win in three months

On the other hand Penrith and their attacking triumvirate of Stains, Salmon and O’Sullivan, losing a back rower and a starting center early, kept the Storm to a duck egg for the final 50’… with a hell of a lot fewer to come back in early October than the mountain men.

NRL Round 22 talking points: The cream is rising, but can it reach Penrith at the top?

How about Pangai, on the eve of last years semis, to the annoyance of most ?
Now Ivan’s picking at the bones of the Tiger carcass,Garner and Madden.

Sharks edge closer to a top-two finish after downing Tigers

So, things stay as they are and the Tigers get what no side wants, the spoon, despite the NRL acknowledging unrighteousness and unmerited loss of points.. shame that.

Google ‘ NRL hatrick’ and you’ll get 1.18 million hits.

From all walks of media and all areas of the game.

Cobbo hat trick gets Broncos in winning circle over Newcastle - and secures finals football

Suaali and Latrelle pairing would have me staying up late England time.

Sharks edge closer to a top-two finish after downing Tigers

How fast, steep and horrific has the fall from grace been for Dane Gagai.
Ruthlessly ripped apart again last night by players of lesser standing, whilst his partner on the left, tagged for greatness, has not learnt one single thing about center defence under his current coaches.

Collectively can’t score.
Collectively can’t tackle.

The ladder is deceptive, they’re the weakest side in the NRL and its time to act on it.

Author Danielle you have ‘Kade Miller’ scoring his first try.

Great first half, Tigers got out of the way of the Sharkies 8 and 10 rather than hit with heart and were inept at fundamentally passing and catching.

Toby is a worry, he’s been so good of late, probably the sides best forward.

If the top sides can’t hatch something to take Mitchell out he’ll go close to winning this for Souths.

He’s just that much better.

'We got steamrolled': Arthur bemoans pathetic Parra pack as Souths nil Eels and leapfrog them on the ladder

On that Dally M prospect, since voting went secret Hunt’s had 3 wins, Yeo (1 point behind) 4 wins and Nicho ( 3 behind) has lead the Sharks to 6 wins.

Sharks and Dragons run home looks equally comfortable yet Nicho pilots a G1 team and Hunt a Bong Bong nomination.

Shark of many talents: Why Hynes is most complete player in NRL

Of course they would be.
But I’m referring exclusively to winning or losing this years Provan Summons.
Nothing beyond that.

'The right thing for the team': Bellamy mulls Munster to fullback as Storm shut out Panthers

They’re not coming back till next year, so come September, one side will be at this stage about 6 premium players stronger and the other…2.

'The right thing for the team': Bellamy mulls Munster to fullback as Storm shut out Panthers

There’s enough chatter coming out of that box, it’s TV not radio we can see.
Keep the camera on the ball and our ears the occasional ‘at ground’ illusion.

Last night, watching the game felt like being at the cinema with the annoying people behind talking loudly. Voss’s constant chatter over the game even when the bunker is giving a verdict needed an usher’s torch in his face.

Ennis humorously ‘shushed’ his meanderings once with a stick to the game ‘ he’s given them 6 again!’

Position vacant: NRL commentator who knows rules - a ref explaining calls will make huge difference

But Hughes and Kaufusi are the only ones who will participate later this year, the rest become irrelevant as they are gone for the ’22 campaign.

They had 1/2 a chance without JFH but Edwards, too, was always going to be a bridge too far tonight.

19-24 fill up with Spartans.. and Lachlan becomes Leonidas Illias on Game Day.

Greece World Cup predicted squad: Titanic task awaits, but this team capable of upsets

Good research and well supported argument.

That said if you’re rating on ‘22 season, Raiders’ Tapine has been THE middle forward and absolutely obliterates any other on the stat sheet and eye test.

The top five players in the NRL

Cleary, the far and away best player in the best club that sits 10 points in front of the Storms best player and double the number of wins the Dragons best player has got them, what kind of contest is that ?

Definitely Munster before Hunt though, who hasn’t been better than Nicho in clubland this year.. a Dally smokey.

Bookies mysteriously are being very cautious with the Titans up there at C Bus. Very stingy odds indeed.

It’s one thing for a team to play without a coach with COVID but entirely different bucket of belief to play for one suspended for spitting the dummy.

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 22

How much would the Knights need to pay, beyond Klemmer’s $800k, to get Dylan Brown up there?
Him and the Sharkies Braydon Trindall would be the halfs to get them into a Top 8 team again.
Dunno if I’d persist with the current coach either.

Every NRL club’s players who will be targeted in the November free-for-all (Part 2)

Ricky- less Raiders take on Benny Hunt the magician at marker this Sunday.. so it’s really preventative medicine for his ulcers to be banned from a dias .

MICHAEL HAGAN: NRL soap opera keeps us entertained but only strong survive this time of year

He gets the $20k fine figure being bandied about will take his total to$155k all up in his career.
So fines are definitely working here.
