Dolphins game thread


Just love how we played after the 1st 20. After all the disruption through the week and right up to kickoff - AFB out, then Barry then CNK and Tauapiki right before kickoff

I was confused, so forgive the players for the slow start. But after the 1st 20 there was some intensity in our defence and running. Great to watch although I dreaded a late loss.

We are back in the season


There really is some serious heart and spirit in this club. Very pleasing to see.

Mitch Barnett is our new Kevin Campion. Tough tough player.

Last 2 weeks have been superb.
It's on a thread here somewhere here. I think I said way back when Mitch was signed that he was going to be awesome. Thats doubly nice because after 24 years of marriage, I'm not often right these days.

I had the Fox commentary, was stoked not to have the local rubbish. Might be because I always switch to the alternate option

Will never happen, but Shaun to come back through NSW Cup ? TMM running the show for 2 weeks has seen the attack improve dramatically. Great to see Marata get through a game without being binned

Not often they get praised but thought the ref had a very good game too

This game reminds me of the covid years where we were using other teams players to make up a team.
Fought back well towards the end of the first half.
Anyway f**k off gould and johns. Arrogant f**ks
Sorry rep netball is ruling my life at the moment on Sundays!
Just proves that 13 fit players who want a win are better than 13 crocks.
Indeed. And how Webby reintegrates SJ could be key to how the rest of the season pans out. TMM has been huge since he's been running the ship. Gotta keep him more involved somehow.
Lucky you!
Yea man. It was actually my son that pointed out we had the Fox commentary on, even he hates the local mob and I hadn't even clicked.

Dunno know how it happened though. I know switching feeds has been doable before but I havent had any luck since we changed to the sky pod thingy.

WTF is going on here.
I never would have picked us to win either of the last 2 games.

So much heart on show, and it'll make interesting selections coming up
