    Round 13 results Thursday August 6 Dragons 16 v 24 Roosters This game was scrappy and grinding at times, but the injury wracked Roosters kept the Dragons at bay and got the results… again Friday August 7 Sea Eagles 22 v 26 Warriors I enjoy a Manly loss… even when I tip them! Rabbitohs 28 v 10 Broncos Bunnies had a good training run, and got the 2 points… Saturday, August 8 Storm 41 v 10 Bulldogs The Doggie`s present playing roster seldom get the credit they deserve… with the stock they have, to put on the paddock each week, no one can seriously accuse them of continuously uhder-performing.They turn up week after week, putting in the effort… Dean Pay came in as coach to a salary cap nightmare that had no future and many seasoned players were shopped off to gain some control over that nightmare… Knights 44 v 4 Tigers Yeah, OK. What the heck made me tip the Tigers????” Panthers 28 v 12 Raiders In the first 10 minutes the Raiders were applying the pressure on the Panthers, then… half time Panthers 24 – 0. If recent history is anything to go by, the wheels could fall of the Panthers wagon soon… Sunday August 9 Titans 30 v 10 Cowboys Hmmm… fancy that! Sharks 12 v 14 Eels Waterlogged field, flippers and snorkel conditions and periods of rain pizzing down, all added to an intriquing game to watch…. Sharks were the better team, but shot themselves by giving away too many dumb penalties and ruck infringements…. at 12 -12, a 70th minute penalty goal gave the Eels the 14 - 12 victory.

    Round 12 results Thursday July 30 Dragons 24 v 32 Rabbitohs Dragons bolted out to an early 16 -0 lead… then the Bunnies won! Friday July 31 Tigers 20 v 26 Warriors Hmmm… Tohu and Hiku made the Tigers go boo hoo Broncos 26 v 36 Sharks Good game, both sides turned up to make their own statement… the Sharks out statement-ed the Broncos! 3 tries in 8 minutes was their punch line….. The Broncos were well into it for 70 minutes being 8 in front and 10 minutes to go… the Sharks hit the after burners and the Broncos defensive line went missing… again! Saturday August 1 Roosters 18 v 12 Titans Hard fought game. 2 tries each, Roosters 2/2 conversions 3/4 penalty kicks. Half time Roosters 10 – 6. A couple of lost opportunities, and 2 dumb professional fowl sin binnings may have cost the Titans the opportunity for an upset result…. The reality of this game: on top of the Roosters long term injuries both Morris brothers, Cordner, Angus Crichton and Tupou did not play Cowboys 12 v 14 Raiders The Cowboys under Josh Hannay seem more determined each round… injury depleted Raiders held on for the win Sea Eagles 12 v 42 Panthers Be it good, bad, or ugly… I enjoy a Manly loss Sunday August 2 Bulldogs 16 v 18 Eels A fast starting Eels ran out to an 18 – 0 lead, and that was the end of their effort… and barely held on for the win. Mistakes and poor options denied a fast finishing Dogs outfit a win. Storm 26 v 16 Knights Well, at least one Qld based club could get up and grab the choccies

    Round 11 results Thursday July 23 Eels 26 v 16 Tigers This was a hard fought struggle, The Tigers started hard but went through a period of HIA`s and injuries with a couple not returning to the field. Tigers gallantly stood tall but were out gunned by a determined Eels outfit Friday July 24 Cowboys 12 v 24 Sea Eagles Hmmm.. Manly were not overly impressive, and can be partly thankful for the Cowboys (whose defensive efforts were up and their attack offered some 2nd phase plays at times) many mistakes/lapses that helped get that win…. In saying this, one has to remember Manly had a few out through injuries. Broncos 8 v 46 Storm The Broncos first 40 minutes impressed me this week. 8-8 at 35th minute, their heads were high, their attack was being directed with planned plays and the defence was organised…. in saying this, the Storm (for their standard) were slightly off pace across the field for the first 30 minutes… but that 40 minutes by the Broncos was a turn around for them to what they have been offering. Half time Storm 14– 8 In saying all that…. (and yes I`m aware over the last 10 years the Broncos do not have a great record playing the Storm) their attack and defence had no answer to the Storm`s 2nd 40 minutes, 32-0 scoring spree Saturday July 25 Warriors 10 v 18 Roosters Warriors put in a good account for themselves, it wasn`t until the 52nd minute that the Roosters hit the front on the scoreboard with a thin 12-10 lead. A converted try about 10 minutes before full time gave the Roosters the 18-10 win. Sharks 28 v 24 Dragons Another game with some questionable ref calls, that may or may not have changed the outcome, but injuries during the match on both sides contributed too… Raiders 18 v 12 Rabbitohs The injury depleted Raiders got the hard earned 2points. The Bunnies had many opportunities but errors cost them this game Sunday July 26 Knights 12 v 18 Bulldogs The Dogs held on for the win. The wet, miserable and slippery conditions that more suited the style of the luckless and flairless Doggies, was helped by the Knights mistakes allowing the Dogs to build an 18 - 0 lead in the first 60 odd minutes. Mistakes and injuries to McCullough and Watson (both may be season ending) did not help the Knights. The Knights were always in this game, but when their opportunities opened up, usually their errors closed them down. Titans 14 v 22 Panthers Panthers appeared to only do enough to ensure the win. The Titan`s first points came at the 30 minute mark, 4 – 14.at the half time mark the Titans were 14 – 16.

    another of the Titan think-tank`s recruitment waste of money and moved a couple their players on to accomodate this contract.... admittedly he had 'potential' but having more problems than a Solleys top shelf $5 digital calendar watch, both on and off field the Panthers were relieved he went to the Titans https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/nrl-2020-bryce-cartwright-quits-gold-coast-titans-returns-to-sydney/news-story/37fe01e6f74fe35d9cc215ba6

    $3.5 mllion for 3 years would be hard/impossible to turn down... especially for a 20 year old, I guess. The young guy has talent, he appears to have a rising future with continuing development, and endless potential ..... that`s the concern with the Titans.;; player development. A good example would be Ash Taylor, young talented, loaded with potential, rising Bronco`s half back getting his chances in the NRL, along come the Titans $1million a season offer.... with the whole club`s weight of expectation on his shoulders it only took 2 seasons for him to crash, with no continued development. Very few above average NRL careers have come out of the Titans, but quite a few careers have been buried at their graveyard. Many times by paying over price for players to come there, they have lost players that went on to be key players at other clubs.

    Round 10 results Thursday July 16 Roosters 20 v 24 Raiders Plucked chooks… Hard fought game… Well done Raiders Friday July 17 Storm 42 v 6 Titans Score line tells the story. Tigers 48 v 0 Broncos The Tigers snarled and roared… and kept running through the Broncos to score Saturday July 18 Dragons 28 v 22 Bulldogs In the final quarter the Doggies blew a 22-10 lead with the Dragons running in 3 tries to get the victory…. Rabbitohs 18 v 20 Knights Score line doesn`t tell the full story… a mistake riddled first 65 minutes by the Bunnies had the Knights looking extra good for that period of the match. Bunnies put on 3 tries in the last 15 minutes to put some interest back into the game for those watching. Sea Eagles 22 v 18 Eels A flying start to the first half by Manly over a self-destructing Eels outfit sealed the win over a late 2nd half come back from the Eels charge Sunday July 19 Panthers 22 v 10 Cowboys Score line doesn`t tell the game… Rugged and untidy game for most of the 80 minutes, the Cowboys turned up with intent and this did not allow the Panthers to feel in control of the game. Panthers 16 – 10 with 15 minutes to go the game was still there for the Cowboys to win…. Panthers scored a converted try on full time…. Game set and match Warriors 10 v 46 Sharks Hmmm… at least the Warriors got on the board!!

    Round 9 results Thursday July 9 Cowboys 16 v 42 Roosters Score line flatters the Cowboys, but they did run in two late tries. Friday July 10 Titans 16 v 12 Warriors Good defence in the first 40 minutes by the Titans prevented a charging Warriors side from putting on a large score, that defensive effort allowed the Titans to hang in and score the winning try in the last 5 minutes. Rabbitohs 18 v 12 Tigers This game wasn`t ‘on the edge of the seat’ viewing with the Bunnies dominating the first 50 minutes of the game. The Tigers did get into the game when Benji Marshall came on with roughly 20 minutes to full time. Saturday July 11 Sharks 24 v 56 Panthers Half time score 26 – 12… all up 14 tries scored in 80 minutes… Panthers got 10 of them Broncos 26 v 8 Bulldogs BREAKING NEWS: The Broncos beat the bottom of ladder Doggies! Still, a win`s a win Is this the light at the end of a tunnel… or a wind affected flickering candle Raiders 14 v 20 Storm Hard fought and the Storm as per usual maintained the pressure in the game to keep the direction mostly under their control, the Raiders did have unseized moments that may have given them the results. The Raiders came out of last night`s game losing Josh Hodgson to a long term injury (late news, he will need a knee reconstruction surgery.. 9 months recovery time), with a number of middle forwards out injured, Hodgson`s absence will be their biggest toll on their final`s charge. Knights 4 v 10 Eels The Eels had a fight on their hands and the Knights can take many positives out of this game Dragons 34 v 4 Sea Eagles Score line says it all….

    yep, Broncs have more problem areas than a one legged man in a bum kicking contest Tipping for last round I got to the point where I had to accept that if this was horse racing the stewards would insist on them being put out to pasture for a winter spell EDIT: added racing to the horse
