If any Souths supporters up in QLD want to buy tickets early I’m a ticketed member here in Sydney. If it’s worked just like it did in previous years we get the first opportunity to buy the better seats.

I’m not sure what they’re doing this year but we obviously cannot attend so if that’s the case happy to give anybody our passwords if interested. 🐇🐇🐇



Prelim finals charges: Grant, Aloiai facing ban; Good news for Panthers​


2 minutes

Storm hooker Harry Grant is facing a ban and Panthers duo James Fisher-Harris and Stephen Crichton have been fined but the best news for Penrith is co-captain Nathan Cleary has been cleared.
Cleary was placed on report for a lifting tackle in the 21st minute of Penrith's 10-6 preliminary final win over Melbourne but the match review committee did not charge the star halfback for the incident.
Grant is facing a ban of 1-2 matches next season after being charged with a grade-one crusher tackle on Panthers fullback Dylan Edwards.
Fisher-Harris (dangerous contact) is looking at a fine of $1350-$1800 while Crichton (contrary conduct) could pay $2500-$3300 over an incident in the 60th minute.

Nathan Cleary on report for dangerous tackle on Bromwich
Manly prop Josh Aloiai is set to miss the start of the 2022 season, with the Manly forward facing a ban of three or four matches for a dangerous throw on Rabbitohs prop Mark Nicholls.
Aloiai was hit with a grade two charge for the tackle in the 68th minute of Friday night's loss to South Sydney.
With two prior offences in the past two years, Aloiai would miss three matches if he enters an early guilty plea or risk a four-match suspension if he challenges the charge at the judiciary.
No other players were charged from Friday night's match.

Of course South's will probably lose Grant , didn't really expect Cleary to go ,after all he is the coaches golden boy poor little Nathan wouldn't be involved in a dangerous tackle or shoulder charge he can do no wrong , had of been anyone else would have copped 2 weeks for the dangerous tackle yesterday and 2 weeks for shoulder charge couple weeks ago ,I can't see him going the distance against sths


The Big Dance. Here it is. We had the easier prelim. They've been in 3 brutal street fights in 3 weeks. Like we did yesterday, we have to be ready from the first tackle. Rip in and be in their face in the first 20. If we can get on top early we should be able to hold them off because I do not see them having the energy late in the game to come over the top of us after what they've been through these last few weeks

Wayne knows all of this. He'll get the boys rolling.

Another thing. These are the Penrith scores beginning with the game against us: 10, 8, 10. They do not have a lot of points in them against good teams. Today they struggled to penetrate a Storm team that were running on fumes with just 15 fit players. If we are on the ball they will not score a winning score on us. BUT that is a big if.
Cleary shud be suspended South's to win 18_6 Luai ,Cleary not lasting first 20 min
