    It would be great to see Slater in tears at fulltime after being sent out a loser

    Prick shouldn't even be playing

    Hopefully the Roosters go on with it

    What a performance from the Roosters. Just emphasizes that titles are won from solid D. Knights will not win anything until we can become great defenders.

    What a seriously boring grand final. Only thing entertaining about that game was seeing Billy and Cam lose.

    Roosters would have to be a good chance of going back to back next year. They seem to be getting a couple of better players and not losing much. Having a salary sombrero helps.
    With the addition of Lamb, the sky is the limit lol.

    That was great to watch. Melbourne had chances but roosters too damn good. A big fark q to Billy and cam. Keary deserved MOM and cronk played game with a broken shoulder. Just crazy!

    Turned $20 into $325 with that one.
    Roosters H2H
    Joseph Manu to score a try
    Total game points <32.5

    even better seeing Storm lose.

    It was a bit sad seeing Slater trying to scam penalties to win the game.
    It would have been nice to see him go out with a bit of dignity, rather than diving like a soccer player and lying to the ref.
    At least he didn't get away with it. The refs have been letting him get away with that far too often in recent times.

    Whilst talking about the number of grubs in the Storm team I ask is the Tetevano that played for the Rossters the same Tetevano we sacked ?

    Yes and who condemned the Club and the NRL for the bashing he gave his wife. It was the 'NRL culture'!

    He was never going to play again, until the chooks grabbed him after we sacked hiom.

    I thought that was anything but boring to watch. The Roosters defence was simply outstanding and to see them dominate the Storm was even sweeter. Keary controlled the team extremely well basically on his own while Cronk was an on field coach with one arm. What impressed me also was the talent of both Latrell and Manu, they’re turning into a class centre pairing and getting better in both attack and defence week to week.

    Such a boring game. Was over well before half time like last year. Don’t see how that’s entertaining at all for a neutral.

    Like I said the only entertaining factor was it being billy and Cam on the losing side.

    Not all grand finals can be played until the final second.

    In the balance until the second half of the first half atleast would be nice though.

    Roosters did what not many other sides can do to Melbourne. Played up tempo, line speed ridiculously good and forwards ran forward and made awesome metres. Storm were too focused to trying to get at cronk their game plan went to tatters. After roosters went up 18 zip the storm knew they had to get back to playing shapes.

    By that time roosters had them well and truly beat. Munster going twice didn't help and croft, Smith and Slater had very quiet games and tried wayyyy too hard toward the end.

    I was going for the roosters so it was probably better watching from my pov rather then someone going for the cheats.
