As a Cowboys fan I'm a bit concerned about this one. Already resting Holmes and Nanai and still have to hope Gilbert and Dearden are good to go after Wednesday night. McLean and Taulagi already out as well. Pretty much no preparation at all. Also have to wonder if the players involved in the Origin squads will even be back in time for the captain's run on Thursday. I have no idea how we're favourites after the Sharks performance last week minus their Origin players.


First Grade
Dearden out. Hampton to play 6. Gilbert to play but i would expect Luciano to come into the starting side for him or at least play greatly increased minutes to give Gilbert extended time on the bench.

Oh, and Cows by 14


Gotta back my brothers at Cronulla for this one. Holmes is really in fine form, though he was somewhat quiet for Origin. He is for sure an absolute gun. Though, I think Sharks have the better side and win it by 10.

I really like Cronulla.
I used to f**king hate The Sharks and Newcastle with a passion, but there's something about Cronulla I really like these past couple years. Can't put my finger on it.
I still hate Newy though. F**k them.

Post Whore
Pretty sure this Door Dash couple have murdered the family living in this house and are now pretending to be the occupants.


Blocker just described Chad as a young halfback....at 31 years old.

Gonna be a good night.
