    1st QUALIFYING FINAL

    STORM (1 ) 18  V  16 EELS (4)

    Plenty of momentum shifts in this game, some sloppy play at times, good game. The Storms rest up for week 3 may be interrupted by a few extra Bellamy supervised ball handling skill sessions

    2nd ELIMINATION FINAL

    SEA EAGLES (6)  10  V  22 PANTHERS (7)

    The fans of 15 NRL clubs are cheering Manly`s 1st week demise.

    I found this a hard game to get into. I`m not sure that Manly did not make the Panthers look better than the Panthers were. Manly played as they did in the middle of the season, not overly in control of a match plan.

     The Panthers play the Broncos next week at Suncorp.

    :)  that went from a statement, to a prayer fast :lol:

    watching the Storm get sucked into playing the Eel`s game strategy, at times, last night does open the door a little if the Broncos can get rid of their handling errors, giving away dumb penalties and stick to game plans.

    In the last few games against some of the top 8 sides there were periods of each game the Broncos mentality seemed to be, to play not to lose rather than keep to the plan to win the game. In Thursday nights game, even McGuire appeared at times to be unsure of his own 'bullet proof' mentality and his edge running game was out a touch.

    Watching the Broncos in games leading up to the final series, players with good ball handling skills started to drop simple passes, are the mental scars from 2015 GF surfacing in their minds during periods of the games?

    Melbourne game was bloody good if any was going to ruffle them it was the Eels. Bronco's just looked not the goods to start with and they seemed lost at times without structure like they had forgotten the game plan... Need Milf and a few others to remain level headed and focused. 

    Cowboy's what a game! How many games have they now won in extra time via field goal. Was time for Morgan to step up and he did. The team just play with guts and are willing to go the extra bit to win which I feel a few teams aren't prepared to do at present. Even without Thurston and Scott they are doing well. Granville, Coote, Hess and Morgan all played solidly! 

    The disappointing thing out of the whole weekend was every coach of a losing team blamed the bunker or the refs. Well sorry all year the play Maloney made has been sin binned and penalised. There were that many forward passes by the Roosters that were not called back and many other calls against the winning teams that they didn't complain about. The refs have a been like that all season now for a few in a row. However if you teams didn't play with so many mistakes and dirty tactics you wouldn't have to complain! 

    C'mon Cowboys, Broncos and Storm! QLDER all the way!
