Telecast should have answered that question for you. McCrone's Raider team mates were standing infront of him, meaning they were offside. It's the exact same deal they've been doing with the 20m quick-starts.

b4l - Croker has a hamstring strain or something.

EDIT - Ari's report sounds right. Either way, it was a minor injury which he suffered part-way through the Cowboys game.
I see. You learn something new everyday.

I thought it just would have been the same as the play the ball and those players can't get involved.

Ricky Stuarts halftime talk according to Fox:
"Stay composed and get it to Milford"

Take note Hook.
Why would Hook take note? Do u seriously think he will be anywhere near the place next year? Pretty sure Benny and Kevie took note as it will be more applicable for them.

I don't know, Hook might be safe. We were top of the table there for a while. If we were Souths, we'd be premiership certainties according to the fans and the coach would get a 5 year extension.

Broncos would also start production for 2014 Premiers shirts..

Really enjoyed that game

Milford is a gun player and won the game tonight imo for Canberra setting up 2 brilliant tries. I thought he could've played a bit better though. Wighton and Croker are turning into a very good 5 eighth- centre combination. Both players are in great form, I was impressed by both of them.

What a boss Shaun Fensom is. 20 runs for 130 meters, 3 offloads and 3 tackle busts while coming up with 46 tackles (according to Fox Sports stats). How he hasn't been picked for City Country is ridiculous. He may be off origin atm but give him a shot in that to see how he handles the rep environment.

I've got my bets & tips in.

I stand to make 5k if everything goes well.

Manly
Broncos
Dragons
Storm
Roosters
Tigers
Raiders
Bulldogs

I have several other bets placed also :)

I'm praying for a miracle.
7 from 7 so far. I just need Bulldogs to beat the Sharks.

Todd Carney ruled out apparently. He didn't finish the training run on Thursday, instead pulled up sore 3/4's into it. That could just be mind games, though.

We will find out today or tonight I guess.

Sharks wouldn't tell me if Carney is playing or not when I messaged them. I'm going to take that as a yes, he is playing.

Updated team list will be named sometime today.

That has got me worried. I was under the impression he was out...

He can still deliver the Sharkies a win with the way the Dogs are going. I am hoping the Doggies backline can fire, because they should be able to win the battle of the forwards considering Gallen, Fifita, Vave and Lewis are not playing.

Carney just has that freakish ability to pull something out of his ass and turn the tide of the game, as we saw last year when Sharks beat us because of Carney.

Kevin Proctor - May not be a great try to a lot of people, but I think the work by Cronk was absolutely brilliant. Completely fooled the defense.

How's the nerves [MENTION=8536]Super Freak[/MENTION]? So with this bet, do you still claim some winnings if the Sharks win tonight?

Well I couldn't sleep properly. It's been a bloody hectic weekend, that's for sure.

If Sharks win, I don't win anything.

I'm pretty confident Bulldogs can pull off a win. They have a pretty good record over Cronulla lately, and Cronulla are missing several key players.

No doubt my confidence will drop as kick off approaches, as it has for every single game apart from the Roosters vs Eels game.

On another note, I need to buy a new foxtel remote today.

Mine kind of got thrown last night when I thought the ref called a forward pass for the Raiders try that put them in the lead.

Lol, I understand you can buy themed Foxtel remotes, perhaps a Bulldogs remote would be fitting considering the money your set to win. :takdir:

Anyway, I'll be cheering the Bulldogs for you and hoping it all goes smoothly. What an absolute champion effort it's going to be!

Haha [MENTION=8536]Super Freak[/MENTION]!

Will be be backing the Doggies for you tonight, which is a minor miracle in itself. ;)

Considering the theory, "...you only hear about the wins (with gamblers)", how many times have you punted on picking the whole 8 wins of the round? Just out of interest? Either way, 7/7 is mighty impressive, especially this round!
