Has anyone not related to Mantellato actually been watching NSW Cup ?
Bahahaha please stop I nearly choked on my bacon and eggs. After a crap week at work it's good to see a bit of humor.
6385 has made a new account I see?
Sims seems to be realising that he has the physicality to make an impact in the top grade.
Smith looks to be over the injury.
Houston played great too.
Mamo is obviously second choice.
Not sure if anyone else has realised that we are the only team this year to win after playing Monday night. Every other team has played pretty crappy, we play like champions.
Well played game, thought everyone looked pretty strong apart from Gagai, even though he maybe good metres. Few errors and very bad attempts at tackles. Scott and Mason easily the most impressive.
Great to have Mullen back as well, missed his kicking game so badly.
u can't blame uate, if ur centre jams in the winger has to follow him, as mentioned I think Dobson was the problem, also I've noticed Scott loves to race up out of the line 9/10 he gets it right but when he doesn't it leaves our outside men short, it nearly cost us a try on the weekend but there winger dropped it cold with noone in front of him
I totally agree that is a far better analysis. He is not having a good start to the year whether it's injury I don't know. Whether he and Pat are still trying to work on their combination. There has been times where down our right side has been exposed a few times. Wait and see.

In other news, Ikin is an idiot.
Did anyone notice the number of times our players pulled one of their teammates off the tackled Raider ? Houston in particular done it a couple of times while Beau Scott dragged Smith off and gave him a bit of a shove. Obviously it was in their minds not to be conceding penalties for laying on the tackled player too long.
Yep I noticed it too mate which why I find it hard to believe Ricky Stuart's claims that we were deliberately giving away penalties to halt the Raiders momentum
Ricky speak with forked tongue.

I'm off to Spec Savers to have my eyes tested. I thought the above read T Roberts 1 point.
Ricky is a child and a cranky, negative muppet who is either acting like a fool on the sideline or complaining. I don't know how his own players can take him seriously, let alone anyone else.
Ricky is a plague..love the fact the eels are doing well, it would have to annoy him a lil bit
Yeah we lost to the raiders and storm because of the penalties we conceded, why on earth would we do it on purpose??
The roosters do, melbourne do as well... they back their D and slow the momentum down... I cant see us doing it though
The more I see of Ricky Stuart the less I think he can coach. Did he not learn that get the ball to your super star fullback doesn't work. Didn't work with hayne wont work often enough with milford. Every halfback I watch him coach basically goes backwards. be interesting by next year to see where their half is at. Not getting over excited though I don't see them making the 8
100% agree mate
Wow nothing important, but in the 2nd half when Joey takes off from the scrum win and then loses the ball when he tries to play it, watch the replay close.
He looks at his hands when he gets up, it wasnt his fault, the ball is actually stuck to his hand/wrist and when he takes his hand off the ball it pops up into the air and he kicks it forward!
it must be tape or something because he looks at his hands like "I'm not Spider-Man am I?"
haha I noticed that too. It's hard to fault him because that happens one times out of a thousand and no player could every suspect the ball to stick to their hand.
