    Probably my favourite non-knights game of the year this ANZAC day clash between the Roosters and Dragons

    Having a few beers and watching the game with dad who will no doubt be cheering on his beloved Dragons today !!

    Footy aside for a moment, Thankyou to all of our defence forces past and present

    Saints looking very good so far, top side, lots of good to very good players and at the risk of coping it, Tariq is playing very well alongside a very good pack, top line halves and very good backs.

    The broncos are so so so so so bad. Wayne could very well lose his legacy these last couple years with even broncos fans turning on him by the time he calls it quits.

    When he and everyone realises he’s a winger he will be sweet

    South's problem now. Had ample opportunity to make those tackles and still got shrugged off. When he learns you have to tackle with your shoulder instead of arm grabbing then he might make a tackle. Until then the missed tackle counter will keep rolling.

    Souths were shocking tonight. Broncos are still bad at everything. None of their tries came through good play. Just one out runs or a kick in behind. The good teams don’t give 4 of those type of tries away in a single game.

    Haas didn’t impress me as much as Gould was fapping over him. Big boy but never bent the line. Highly involved but that’s easy for any player to do in a 10 minute stint.

    You certainly covered your backside from that earlier "so so so bad" to Souths were shocking so what political upbringing do you have, swing with the result, admit it you knocked one side supported another then changed horses midstream and all without a simple "oops maybe I was wrong"

    You disagree on Souths performance or did you see a good team performance by the Broncos there where I’m sure most would agree both sides were shocking tonight.

    Or feel like just having a dog for the sake of it? Either way I don’t really care for your opinion on here so fire away :)

    Not worried you know how it is you have your very strong opinion but reality is you knocked Broncos and when it came undone you didn't credit them you went for Souths claiming them even worse, every side that wins deserves credit they beat the opposition, in most of your posts you have trouble with that, credit where credits due.

    I most certainly give credit where it’s due but that was a garbage game where both teams didn’t deserve a win. Not going to congratulate a team for being less sh1t then the other.
