    Don’t forget his 3 penalties and knock on. Penalty lead to try.

    6-0 at fulltime and it wasn't like 2 brilliant defensive teams that couldn't crack each others line either

    37 ineffective tackles, 44 missed tackles, 28 errors, 11 penalties, 1 sin bin and completion rates of 67% (Roosters) and 77% (Bulldogs)

    I enjoy the highs and lows of a hard fought tight contest but this game was rubbish

    It was great seeing another huge crowd too

    11,309 (It looked like less than that) in a stadium that fits 80,000+

    I don’t care how many metres or offloads Woods made, the guy is still a pillow to me.

    I enjoyed the game would have been good to see it in golden point.

    dogs should have won that game.

    Tonight's games showed up better than previous night, Warriors look fit and keen, top 4 finish, Storm were efficient and always seem to have Broncos measure who tried hard but couldn't maintain pressure, Slaters try from a (miss) kick was no try and put Broncos under the pump, can't beat a good team if decisions go against you, need it all to happen for you. Was a good game.

    I know it's been said time and time again but my god we dodged a bullet by not landing Bird, he looked extremely underdone in the halves tonight.

    The Warriors are a completely different team this year compared to previous years

    Keep in mind that the Dragons are the best attacking team atm scoring 206 points in 7 games at an average of 29.4 points a game

    The next best to them are the Warriors and Storm with 162 points

    The stats were so one sided but the Warriors just kept turning up

    If you look at the numbers below the Warriors should've got beaten comfortably, They lost every key stat except for Line Breaks and Errors

    Just goes to show what desire and attitude can do for a team

    Match Stats

    - Possession was 61-39 to the Dragons
    - Dragons completed at 80%, The Warriors at 78%
    - Dragons ran 1,750m and the Warriors 1,489m

    The Dragons put in a woeful first half and never looked like getting on the board.

    Mary must have used rockets in the rear end at half time as they came out a different side and immediately put points on.
