    Good to see Newcastle going ok under Brownie, they are on 10 points, just 4 points behind us.

    Yes they got beat by Storm, Roosters and us, but beating Broncos, Tigers and Canberra among others is a decent effort.

    Having Ponga helps.

    They stood up well without Pearce last night.

    Mate exactly this , they are only 2 wins away from us . We are not home and hosed yet . Still a lot of footy to play , but we are in a good position just need to be consistent and not to string together consecutive losses ... As for the Knights they are building well under Brownie , they will continue to improve ....

    It’s great to see a team that’s been in the cellar for years come good, they have great supporters. The fact that an X Dragon is there coach is ok but better still that they got so many players from the rorters especially letting Pearce go for Cronk which I think will be the blunder of the year.

    Brownie and Cleary have worked miracles with their respective clubs. Hats off to them.
    Just goes to show what a coach can do, even without many marquee players.
    I would rate them higher then a few clubs with money to burn.

    This is one of the most exciting NRL seasons in years.

    I remember once reading posters here saying they don't watch non-Dragons games. What a load of shit, just means you aren't a rugby league fan.

    You'd miss so much amazing footy.

    Rein's service has been appalling. Constantly passing to Cartwright and not Taylor.

    Rein with one of his trademark dummy half tries. Good on him!

    Absolutely great to see the ' strugglers ' of the competition making their way to the top of the tree . Excellent coaching plus , as already mentioned by others , some good off-season buys and the fortunes of those clubs are turned around , whilst the ' money ' clubs just can't seem to take a trick.

    Another member (?) told me a few weeks ago that change DOES occur every now and then and I must admit it does seem to be the case in 2018 . May it continue on for each of those clubs and of course the Dragons also !

    I don't watch Sharks games, I choose to go out the backyard and watch the grass grow, its more exciting.

    They have him for another 4 years, likely as their fullback.

    Hope they get used to plenty of low scores.

    To be honest, Dugan has been pretty solid for the Sharks, one of their best. I'm not a fan of hating players who have left, I hope he has some luck with his injuries

    Yep, I love watching our Saints play rugby league but equally dislike watching MelbPorn, Nulla Narks, The castrated Ponies and alike.

    Thank you for sharing. I thought I was on my own here. Best of luck to Duges for a quick recovery.

    Agree crush, I watch my tortoise walk 3 metres in the 80 minutes the Sharks play.... watching Jimmy my tortoise walk his 3 metres is far more exciting.

    Where does it it say I wished anything on him Drama Queen? Shame is yours.

    If you read any of my posts I’ve always been a big fan of Duges, always. Havili went off with a HIA last night. Packers out injured for Tigers and Milne has been sacked. As a Dragons fan I take an interest in our ex players.

    You’re on many peoples dickhead posters list for a good reason.
