    Ranga Farva was about to cry after Marata and Reggie smashed him earlier.


    It was alright when he was carrying on like a Dickcheese when he smashed that blonde plodder from Manly a week earlier. The worry for him going forward is he was have a big red target on him. Literally.

    Even bigger joke is the fact that Hodgson had 9 missed tackles and 1 try assist and George Williams 6 missed tackles and 1 try assist.
    6 minutes to go those 2 wouldn't have been a consideration for points...
    Toovey reckons there needs to be an investigation..

    Meh, anyone that cries because he got smashed a couple of times and booed in first grade deserves to cop it. If the contact part of rugby league and the crowd booing is too much for him he needs to find another job.

    Yep, he was thinking he was a hard man the week before.

    Imagine how much worse it will be when he's playing in front of 20-30k?
    The raiders were filth all round on Saturday.
    Rapana - all the dog shots
    Horsbugh - surely that's bringing the game into disrepute?
    Hudson Young and Whitehead both pushing Gutho at the end. Really poor sportsmanship by the Raiders.
    Club management should tell them all to pull their heads and concentrate on playing than their other bullshit antics.
    Yes i get heat of the battle but the shit they carried on with the other night is not a good look for the game.

    Ultimately we can't know why specifically he got so emotional.

    Regardless, the idea that an emotional bloke is soft because he's emotional needs to FOAD

    Gary Belcher not surprisingly... Absolute peanut

    I know they like to think all their judges are neutral but how you can have former club greats judge on their own teams games is just ridiculous.

    RCG to not walk away with minimum 2 Dally M points is criminal. Josh Hodgson seriously? Williams kept trying and set up one good try but didn’t have that much bearing on the game. CNK was the Raiders best player by a fair margin I thought.

    That is horseshit that is!
    Not to say RCG would be in line for player of year, but he destroyed them. How he doesn’t get 3 points is ridiculous

    Probably the best stats of any forward over the weekend and gets no points. What a joke

    Does any of these judges watch the games??

    He wasn't crying until he got smashed a couple of times. If getting hit hard is what tips him over the edge emotionally then the NRL is not for him. The week before when he was dishing it out he thought he was the toughest bloke on the field. Can dish it out but can't take it.

    I'm not saying he was right; what I'm saying is, he is 22, new to First Grade, and obviously has a temper.

    It was funny - but I'm trying to say that, while I don't agree with his reaction, I can understand it.

    I reckon we have all reacted stupidly in our lives, due to pressure.

    I’ve got no problem with him crying, but blaming others and cracking it at fans for perceived sleights or whatever is not on. And us being penalised for making him cry is definitely not on

    Now that WAS bizarre. I would like to hear an explanation actually. Not even the normally one eyed commentators could work it out.

    Belcher.
    Well that explains it then. He should get the Ruan treatment and be forced to stand down from voting from here on.

    I f*cking loved it! Nothing like a fiery redhead going off. Not enough characters these days.
    I reckon he could be a Smokey for QLD. They are going to need some mongrel.
