    Yep i still think his worth 250k a yr.

    Last night stats says enough.
    14 runs 149m 6tks 1 miss 1 offload 10tks breaks
    Ohh and if he was 1ft back he would of had a try.
    1 foot ffs and u murder him for it.... timing a run like that isnt easy when ur half stops goes stops then kicks.

    Bugger, a big turnaround after last week's effort for them.

    I'll certainly be downloading the NRL win over the Eels and keeping it.

    The game was that good I watched the replay 2 hours later. What a feeling this is.

    When the forwards are all topping 100 M for any team usually good things come.

    We got 2 players in the NSWRL Blues Team of the Week, Brock Lamb named captain

    6 – Brock Lamb (c)

    Club: Newcastle Knights; Origin appearances: 0; 2017 TOTW selections: 2.

    17 total runs, 103 total metres, two line-breaks, one try-assist, 15 tackles, six tackle-breaks, one line-break-assist, one try, one field goal.

    For the second-consecutive week, Brock Lamb was deemed our best-performing New South Welshman in the NRL after lifting the Knights to a third straight victory. While Newcastle remains in 16th place, there are plenty of positives for Lamb to take from season 2017 and he has shown promise of being a special player in the future. On Friday, he helped create two tries as well as scoring his own, the best on ground at ANZ Stadium.

    10 – Daniel Saifiti

    Club: Newcastle Knights; Origin appearances: 0; 2017 TOTW selections: 2.

    17 total runs, 160 total metres, 16 tackles, one tackle-break.

    Once again Saifiti was integral to the Knights go-forward on Friday night, nothing up the most metres of their forward pack. It was a straightforward performance but one which went a long way to ensuring the impressive win.

    We got 3 in the nrl team of the week

    1. Dane Gagai (Knights)

    Brilliant against a team touted for the top four, running for 224 metres, busting 11 tackles, setting up three tries, creating line breaks for two of his teammates and making a line break of his own.

    6. Brock Lamb (Knights)

    Lamb's two seasons of fast-tracked education in the NRL is starting to come to fruition, the Newcastle No.6 outshining both Corey Norman and Mitchell Moses in the Knights' upset victory over the Eels. Lamb laid on a try and scored a crucial one himself in the 60th minute to go with six tackle busts, two line breaks and a line-break assist.

    16. Lachlan Fitzgibbon (Knights)

    One of the big improvers for the Knights this season, Fitzgibbon proved difficult to contain with every carry, busting through the Parramatta defence to score the first try of the second half and put Newcastle on course for victory.

    Would be a couple of yrs since that happened id think?

    We had 3 in Round 18

    3. Peter Mata'utia

    Dragged his team back into the contest with some quick-thinking from a quick tap that resulted in a try just before half-time and gave his side what looked like a winning lead with his second late in the game. And then of course the unthinkable happened.

    6. Trent Hodkinson

    Let's be honest, he should have taken the shot at penalty goal to potentially take the game into extra time but for the 79 minutes prior Hodkinson had expertly engineered what appeared set to be a spoiler to his good friend Josh Reynolds' final game at Belmore. His pass for Chanel Mata'utia's try was pure class.

    16. Daniel Saifiti

    In another difficult season for Newcastle Saifiti continues to grow in stature, the hulking front-rower making 145 metres from 14 carries along with 20 tackles.

    Is that on a laptop? It should let u watch it live.... it would be something to do with the location settings id say.
    Maybe someone else can chime in that uses the nrl pass on a laptop?

    Also are u using a external monitor? That could be the issue

    You can watch it live on a desktop computer also with a little finessing of the browser. There is a browser plugin you can install that sets the browser to act like a mobile phone. This then allows the NRL site to stream the video on the desktop.

    The plugin is called User Agent Switcher. I select IPhone when changing to the mobile browser mode.

    It's not full screen though, but a few CTRL + to increase the size of the browser and it is certainly big enough. Much bigger than on mobile/laptop. I watch on 47" TV with browser zoomed to 170% size.

    There is a method to getting it to work I have found. I load the NRL site, log in, get to the page with the watch live video ready to click. Change the browser in to mobile mode, and refresh the page, re-login if need be, and start the stream.
