    Definitely think about it by the 5th game. Not sure we can get up with another 3 starting 13 ruled out with injury.

    Yeah the cowboys have had a shocking run with injuries, Some big names and key players among them

    I think they have done remarkably well to still be sitting in the top 8 and to have managed 4 wins in their last 6 games

    Storm vs Roosters has been great to watch..... brutally in moments, class everywhere, and fast paced when there aint penalties being blown.

    Watson has been good at the back, Guerra has been strong also.

    Think it was a abstract version of the moon walk.

    Should get a week for it imo. If his knee hit the face of either Watson or Guerra they could of been knocked out

    Did you watch the game? If you did and didn't cash out at half time then you have to much money to waste haha.

    We were gone after the 30 minute mark.

    Fair enough then well if you had of watched the first half you would of cashed out.

    O'Neill and Morgan off injured not to return as well as Granville and Linnett both going off for HIA.

    Cowboys were always going to be spent in the last 30 minutes and did very well to keep it to only 8 points.

    Looks like Canberra will still be chasing a finals berth.
    On the plus side they havent needed to try hard.
    Warriors are a nightmare team to watch/follow.
