Did you mean Bennett here?
Dragons, Knights, Broncos all saddled with shit contracts.

Letting reynolds go when he's proved he's still a top tier halfback seems dumb. Remember he was trying to offload Johnston at one point too.

Bennett wanted to keep Reynolds, he had no say in the matter.

Johnston wanted to test his market and potentially earn fullback money. Bennett said go right ahead and seemingly the offers that came in weren't enough to entice him.

I can't remember any bad contracts at the Dragons. They just had an ageing roster that was near the end of the careers. The only impact Bennett had is that he took a few players with him to Newcastle.

Yeah no, I meant why quote my post about Bellamy with your comment about Bennett?

James Maloney tried this at Suncorp years ago. The fans kicked up such a stink, the ref cottoned on and made him move back out.
Maloney just turned to the crowd shaking his head with a smirk on his face. Good times…

This is literally embarrassing though. That must be roughly 7-10 metres worth of cheating.
If you weren't the Panthers or another pet team of theirs it would be considered cheating by the NSWRL.

The games officiating was horrible and exemplifies everything wrong with the game.

- Holding down players
- Constantly not being back 10
- Trainer stopping play in try scoring position for Welch but he wasn’t made to go off
- The conversion off the mark
- TPJ throwing a marker
- TPJ dropping an elbow
- Luai HIA

Shambles

The big thing that has crept into the game is how early teams leave their line before the ball has even been touched with the foot by the player playing the ball. It's ridiculous how quick Penrith get up off their line. Fucken shits me.

Wasn't the trainer calling time off a mandatory 2 minute sit out rule introduced this season (and never used)? Or am I imagining things.

Well, I've suggested a remedy for that but...

Funny thing is I've seen it literally dozens of times.

Yeah this happens all the time. You’ll find when a player scores right in the corner, the tee will be brought in a bit. We do it, as well.

The only time I’ve seen someone get pulled up for it was Thurston in the GF. Probably because of the nature of the kick and I’m pretty sure the Broncos players alerted Sutton.

Blake Taafe will become the least experienced player to play in a GF.

Taafe has played 7 matches.

Mbye currently holds the record when drafted into the Bulldogs GF team to replace an injured Ennis (2014) after 8 NRL games
