    Its scarey territory we are entering as Eels fans. We are starting to expect our team to win.

    Ahhh the consistency is staggering...
    Raiders winger Jordan Rapana has been charged with a grade-one careless high tackle on Eels forward Daniel Alvaro.

    If Rapana takes the early plea he'll receive a $550 fine, if he fights the charge and loses he faces a $750 fine.

    What about his dog shots on Sivo?
    His head shot on Alvaro was far worse Nrown's hit last week. Yet the punishment..jack schitt

    Hodgson also clocked Fergo around the throat...yep nothing wrong with that either.
    I guess Sticky got his "luck" here.

    There was a moment last night where a bad call went against us, and we handed the Raiders the ball.

    That set in defence from us was absolutely brutal - Matterson, Niukore, RCG, and Mahoney made it their missions to belt the living shit out of the Grubs in that set, and they did so brilliantly.

    I am so, so impressed with this team.

    Gus not rating our premiership chances on twitter.........

    also mentions we have had in easy by playing at home......






    does not rate our game against the roosters:



    But rates Panthers chances......



    And then suggests Raiders had some poor calls last:

    Not unexpected. Will make is all the more glorious when we rub his giant bee sting face in it. Although knowing Gus, he will tell all and sundry that he always thought Parra would do well.

    It was good that he gave the bulk of the credit to the players rather than tickle his own ego. Seems like a good guy.

    Erin's hairdo was a bit underwhelming but I like the way she does interviews.

    His hit on Alvaro was surely a binning at least. Around the forehead and cynical being less than a minute in the half. He's zoomed past Slater & Hodges as the biggest cat to ever play

    The commentary team is very poor this year, it seems more and more biased comments are coming into it, and comments where it seems like the commentators aren’t even watching the game!
    Last week in the sharks game, the sharks at the start of the second half were kicking it to the sideline to start with as they were down a player in the bin and wanted to waste time, every kick was met with the commentators saying it was a “bad” kick each time.
    It was clearly game management and exactly how you should play that time frame
