Better than the Mundine botched try ?
I call your Mundine botched try and raise you a Jamie Ainscough high tackle.

They are footy players who have signed a contract with a club that also ensures they have to sign and agree with a professional code of conduct from the National Rugby League. No more, no less.

they are football players that’s it the quicker people don’t see them as models the better. They are footy players and we are entertained every week watching them play that’s it

Panthers 26 - Broncos 12

The Panthers average defensive record against Top 8 sides is around 8 points and 12 points for overall. I think many people who claim to be experts keep forgetting this stat.

CC Isaiah Yeo. He was warming up last week. Although Stephen Critchon’s last game for Panthers could be anything. I think the motivation to send him and Spencer Leniu out as winners is driving this group more than the legacy of a 3-peat tbh. This group for a bunch of them came through grade together, this bond is unquantifiable and a big part of how they know their game so well.

I think this is the first grand final day since I was about 16 that I won't be sinking piss like the sad bald Eels fan I am.

Instead, the role of alcohol will today be played by synthetic opioids.

How awesome would it be for Jarome Luai to win the Clive Churchill medal tonight, just to see everyone in here lose their f**king minds.
If he does, I hope you can.pull your head out of your arse and enjoy it.

I'm with @Maroon4life - Luai and the like are good for the game. I love it when these guys back up their banter, and love firing a shot if they f**k up... luai won't give a shit but hes not the target... the pearl clutchers are.

Man, cannot wait for this game but I will wait..... late kickoff in NZ time because New Zealand is so far away they need to have a late kickoff - even though AFL plays early, advertisement still very important - New Zealand not so important - yeah NRL let's goooooo!
No hate though, been watching for 20 years, same thing with Origin games you just adapt or just watch the replays in the morning. Very good match highlights mean you don't even need to tune in!

It’s a constant struggle. Throw young children into the mix and late NRL/Origin games become an endurance test. Many are the times I have woken on Saturday or Sunday morning at the crack of dawn to screeching children wondering why I stayed up late watching a scoreless second half between two garbage teams I despise.
