    Just to get Kelvin prepped for the season, here`s one for him


    Three rugby league fans were walking back from the ground when one noticed a foot sticking out of the bushes by the side of the road.
    They stopped and discovered a nude female unconscious and near death so one of them phoned the police and also requested an ambulance.

    Out of respect and propriety, the first Broncos fan took off his cap and placed it over one of the female's breasts.
    The second Broncos fan took off  his cap and placed it over her other breast.
    Following their lead, but with great reluctance, the Sea Eagles fan took off his cap and placed it over her lower region

    The police arrived first and an officer began to conduct his investigation.
    He lifted up the first Broncos cap, replaced it and made an entry in his notebook.
    He lifted the second Broncos cap and replaced it; making more notes in his book.


    Then the officer lifted the Sea Eagles cap, replaced it, lifted it again, replaced it, lifted it a third time and replaced it one last time - shaking his head in disbelief.

    The Broncos fan was extremely annoyed and challenged him, "What are you, a pervert or something mate?
    Why do you keep lifting and looking, lifting and looking?"
    "Well," said the officer, "I'm a little surprised and confused. 
    Normally, when you look under a Manly cap... you'll find an a$$hole."

    Storm 12 v Dogs 6   

    too wet to get a grasp of that game. but the dogs didn`t take any advantages given (one way or the other)

    Tigers 34 v Bunnies 18 

    Inglis knee injury, Hymel Hunt off early concussion.

    Inglis injured in 8-10 min played on 1 leg into 2nd half. ACL injury, scans today show he will be out up to 6 months.

    Who is showing up to be next in line for a Qld centre spot?

    Neither Burgess must be up for contract renewal this year

    Such a shame to see a player like Inglis who dominated for so long now having a constant struggle with injury. Queensland will miss him in SOO. 

    Before the rain started, Melbourne was towelling up the doggies despite the usual trash thrown in by Reynolds, Klemmer and others. A few punches and sin bins caused Blocker Roach to observe "I blame you for all of this Paul Gallen - one little punch in Origin......"

    Cowboys 20 v Raiders 16

    This game was 16/16 at full time. Cowboys won it in extra time with a golden try, actually it was more assy than golden, Thurston went for field goal, ball hit crossbar bounced in the Raiders in goal and a Cowboy touched down.

    Roosters 32 v Titans 18

    Game of 2 halves. Roosters led 28 -0 at half time. Titans came out and laid on 18 points in the 2nd half and Roosters got a try with 2 mins to full time. Both coaches will be wondering WTF

    and to wind up round 1

    Warriors 26 v Knights 22

    Warriors had Issac Luke injured early in the game followed by Ryan Hoffman later on. Kearney could consider the Warriors fortunate to get away with the win. Brown could consider the Knights unfortunate not to go on with their 22-20 lead with 10 mins to go, after trailing 20-8 at half time.

    Eels 20 v Manly 12.

    Great game. Both sets of forwards gave it their all for 80 mins. Eels forwards laid the platform, Corey Norman would have been the best on the field. If Norman stays major injury free and in form the vEels are going far this season, without salary cap dramas.

    round 2 kicked off with

    Roosters 28 v Doggies 24

    The Roosters young guns are coming on strong, the same can not be said for many of the older guns for the doggies. But it`s a long season...:)
