Nah broncsgoat broncsgoat has a point. If the kid had any style at all he would have turned around, palmed off Tupou and gone on a weaving cross field run through the chasing defence and put the ball down under the posts.
Palm off Tupou and then get tackled before even reaching the line by the defenders coming across in cover.

If there is one critique I can give Coates on his try is that he needs to work on his put down dive. Those elite try scorers glide gracefully across the turf once the try is scored. He kind of skimmed and bounced a little. Maranta used to leave divots after his put downs.

To be fair, he hasn’t had much practice at it with his club side.

The one criticism I have of Capewell is almost every tackle died with him. Sami got no ball and there was no passing back inside. If he doesn’t have the highs like game 1 again, he may be a real hindrance.

But he had a great game which is all we can ask so cross that bridge if it comes

That's a pretty good point. I reckon (hope) he'd be forced to pass more with a strike weapon like Holmes on his outside though.

I'd imagine Brenko Lee will probably be back in the squad if he's healthy. So him and Holmes will likely come in for Sami and Coates/Capewell.

Capewell was always playing even if Lee was fit- Sami was dropping out. I would think Sami would be the one to miss out next time too.

Normally Gould is painful to listen to in origin but I thought he was at least trying to be objective the other night, he didn’t say too much stupid that I remember. Nothing like the NSW were the better team or anything like in the recent past.

I'm guessing he saw the hundreds of memes.

The NRL have gone to great lengths to explain once again how the TV clock is not in sync with the game clock. The ref has the 10-0 countdown in his earpiece. It was the right call to blow the whistle.

As if that will stop the media lol

It worked out well in the end, but if you are going to have like 5 players pile on the ball carrier like QLD did on that last play you really should not get off until the whistle has blown, either for full time or for a penalty. You can't allow the ball to be played and get stuck with half the team at marker. NSW score out wide if that play was allowed.
