Re: George Williams

George was awarded both Player of the Match in the Storm semi-final, and Player of the Finals from Raiders fans voting on their website. Quite an achievement for a Pom up against favourites like Jack Wighton and Josh Papalii.

Re: CC final

Sure, morley. I have watched every NRL game for a good few years now, so you do get to know all the squads (and have a view on each particular player), much as you might in football from years of watching MotD. But plenty here don't; I get that. Meanwhile I will resolve to keep in 'on topic'.

Re: CC final

but to keep bashing it with NRL references gets a bit tedious at times . It is what it can be given the money available . Regards EW EW, morley and others> Yes, on reflection, you are right. It's a cheap shot, and I shall try to refrain in future. NRL games can be discussed in dedicated threads in ...

Re: CC final

I don't disagree. It was a good contest. Unfortunate that the result hinged too much on a refereeing decision, though.

Re: CC final

In some ways i like that the BBC at least do try to talk the sport up, which Sky have long since given up on, but banging on about what a superb high quality contest is was, all I could think was, clearly, you weren't watching Penrith v Souths earlier.

A bit more composure and a few more of the 50/50 decisions and Salford could have won. Ref waited until the 74th minute to finally apply a play the ball law.
Yeah, harsh. That ptb was no different to umpteen others in this or any game.

Re: Melbourne vs Canberra SPOILER

Yeah, have to admit, the Fox is a bit better than Liam Marshall. Probably not as good as Regan Grace, though. :P

Re: Melbourne vs Canberra SPOILER

I don't think there's a better winger than the Fox right now. Never rated Vunivalu quite as highly, but he great today too. Croker will be having nightmares for years about V dummying past him on a foot-wide outside. Nofoaluma had a terrific season.

Re: Melbourne vs Canberra SPOILER

The disallowed try by the fox should have stood if he did not go out of play They didn't disallow it for him going out of play, they said he knocked on. Looked a try every day of the week to me. Game lost in the first 15 mins, sure. Great kicking game from Melbourne. I was following the game on the...
