    Yep - you can looks at refereeing decisions, dropped balls etc all you like but one thing that so often gets overlooked is the importance of accurate goal kicking.

    Two conversions are worth just as much as any try.

    It's not Cleary's fault. He's normally got Kikau the destroyer on the edge who can carry 3 players over the line to score.

    I live in Brisbane. It was glorious listening to 2 heads everywhere eating the team alive. Poor old Hunt, he's the scapegoat. They're still filthy at him for dropping the Donks gf and how he's killing it for the Dragons. Be funny af listening to the hillbillies if he makes the match winning play in the gf this year.

    I say well played Hunt, 2 of the best matches you've ever played

    You obviously never watched Broncos games from the 2015 grand final onwards. Even 50% of Dragons supporters were upset at the size of the contract thrown his way!

    The Dragons won’t make the GF. They’ll struggle to make the prelims!

    Watching the replay.

    Gus made a good point during the Roberts sin bin.

    The ref called time off before T Turbo had been tackled.

    "If" Roberts hadn't done anything wrong, where would play have restarted?

    It's easy to say it as a Broncos fan but Hunt was bog last night, that kick on the 3rd tackle was a monumental pressure reliever

    He struggles in the big moments and that's been something he's dealt with all of his career, less than ideal, especially when you're the halfback

    I think QLD fans have taken it well.

    They’ve had their run. Now they’ll move on and cheer on one of the many QLD teams in contention for the NRL finals series....

    At least Billy Slater actually said we deserved the win,instead of Meninga's mantra of the usual "they were probably the better side" that stubborn fookwit never gave anyone due credit.

    QLD fans need to have a good look at the pathetic defence on Addo-Carr for his try. Should NEVER have scored that.

    Either he is an absolute genius or there was some very sub standard defending.
