    Did anyone else just catch tariq saying that now korbin is apart of a forward pack that goes forward you'll see him best. Having a little dig at the knights. Geez he annoys me. Can't wait till knights v dragons and see the boy's sit him on his arse!

    They were part of that forward pack, In fact they were "Forward Leaders"

    Leading by example wasn't their forte :lol:

    Well as even Uncle Benny says .. 'social loafing' the pair of them. But their sister, now she runs hard and knows how to offload!

    Titans beating the eels makes our form look better.

    Eels were missing Norman which makes a huge difference

    Yep they really missed him although at 12-0 I thought the Eels were on track but they crumbled

    13 errors and a completion rate of 74% didn't help, They also lost the penalty count

    not sure if i should post a new thread so ill just post here lol. But a there seems to be a lot of talk about concussion as of late. My question is Should NRL have extended benches game day? Say they have 18. They can use any four of the 5 bench players during the game. But someone gets a serious injury or ruled out due to concussion then they can use the other player? Could help allow younger players get introduced into the game quicker too? Eg a team is up by 20 after 60 minutes and only used 3 players from the bench they could then use the rookie as the 4th player allowing him to gain some experience?.
    Just a thought anyways...

    Same number of "normal" interchanges as before and a free interchange if someone has to come off with concussion, and a 5 man bench. Any concussion players can't come back on for any reason - cleared or not.

    yeah its getting to that point. If he is bad enough he has to come off for a HIA then he shouldnt come back on. But if thats the case then maybe need 19?

    Do the tigers also understand they are not winning the ruck so they can't hold on for that 1 second longer in the wrestle.
