Tuned in late. Why is Tallis crying?

Remembering the struggles Kevvie went through when his wife was ill.

Touching stuff from Gordie.
He's a massive flog these days but honestly pretty powerful stuff. Love the rugby league brotherhood.

Dragons are doing great considering the circumstances. Both their halves out for Origin, two balls dropped cold early in the count, and have been absolutely flogged in the penalty count. The Broncos would be down by 30 but the Dragons have just kept on running hard and tackling hard, so far the Storm have been well contained.

Harsh call there on Dufty, looked like a dime a dozen second effort from Melbourne on the goal line drop-out.

A bit of karma with Papenhuyzen slipping over and dropping it.

Poor set from St. George, the only play they ran at them was Nicholls and a grubber from dummy half. They should have at least given Dufty or Lafai a run.

I agree that one was a second effort. However, the amount of voluntary tackles we see from fullbacks in that situation, I don't mind the kick chasers getting a bit of slack there.

What a play there from Bromwich and the support from Asofa-Solomona!

The foot-work and the ball-play, there's a few halves that would be jealous of that.

A bit soft, but at the same time a really dumb penalty there by Smith.

And Ravalawa just too big too strong off one of the most telegraphed inside runs you'll see! The Bromwich brothers - what's doing?

Penalty Melbourne for an escort.

Smart option to go the high kick over the field goal and Host gave himself pretty badly by turning his body into Hughes. I do think these aerial contests have gotten to the stage where teams will play for the penalty.

Down by 2, let's just run one out and wait until the last tackle to pass the ball down a shortside where we don't have numbers.
