    That shows how hopeless the merkins in the bunker are.

    Great play from B Smith btw.

    Scary how good Smith could be. He's got Isaac Luke's running game, but 10x the brainpower.

    Melbourne had better retire Cam smith very soon. In his first chance at elite level Brandon is living up to the hype.

    Can’t see how anyone could afford to keep him if they’re not throwing elite money in his direction.

    I'm sure someone at Melbourne can be as bad at golf as Uncle Nick.

    How else do you get around if rain has grounded all the planes?

    Lol Brandon Smith will be almost 25 before he's a starting hooker in the NRL.

    He's an absolute gun who is wasting away 1/3rd of his career down in Melbourne warming the bench when he should've been a starting hooker for a couple of years now.

    It's mildly infuriating.

    Tonga can't knock on or be penalised in this game apparently.

    Edit: Hey it worked. About time.

    I thought it looked like a strip live. But that knock on call was atrocious.

    Tonga just need a half decent half.

    From one of the worst refs in the competition it's not surprising

    Tonga can't score even after getting the souths treatment off of the refs.
