    While Souths have a good, strong lineup, I think we can actually win this game as the last time we played them, they had Sam Burgess, Ben Teo and Luke Burgess, players who have since left. They will have Isaac Luke though, and we've added Brett Morris to our squad.

    Also, a fun stat for this game, it will be the first time in Rugby League history that 2 sets of twins face-off against each other (Brett and John Morris vs George and Tom Burgess).

    What a f**king disgraceful performance by the Sutton. He needs eye surgery... gouge them out someone please.

    Now, I have no problem conceding defeat - we lost fair and square to Penrith, but that was one pathetic performance.

    Firstly, why was Lichaa penalised on the 5th tackle for an alleged flop? He simply got square and did not, in any way, impede the play the ball. The was pathetic.

    Secondly, Graham. Now, that was a complete accident. Reynolds got injured and it was a shame, but it was not a penalty. Graham did not make contact with Reynold, he was attempting a charge-down, and secondly, it was the momentum of Graham that resulted in the injury. It was completely accidental.

    Thirdly... why was the penalty given from right in front rather than where the ball landed some 20 metres to the left?

    Fourth (yes, 4th), after the kickoff, Josh Morris was taken out.... why were Souths not penalised for that? The could've well been what the Bulldogs needed?

    Sutton, I have no problem saying this on a public forum, and I can't get fined because I'm not an NRL coach, so I'll say it now... YOU ARE A f**kING BLIND BAT AND I HOPE YOUR ANUS CHOKES ON YOUR OWN SHIT RESULTING IN AN EXPLODING ASSHOLE!

    Looks like I'm not the only one who's furious about this... the (dickhead) fans threw bottles at him after the game. Now the club will launch an investigation into this.

    You're an idiot. Graham dived at a kicker and made contact with the legs. Penalty every time.

    And it was given 10 metres out because the rules say thats the correct place for a foul on a field goal kicker

    You're embarrassing yourself. The ref was 100% correct.

    I feel sorry for you guys. Shafted by the ref on that one.

    Really? Fine, let's say you're correct. Let's then see what justifies Josh Morris being taken out from the kickoff... you got anything to defend the refs about that?

    Embarrassing myself LMFAO... Souths are a protected species... fact!

    Seriously?


    1. There was still 65 minutes to go when we had that 10 point lead
    2. A 10 point lead, even with 5 minutes remaining is not a big lead
    3. That 8 point try didn't help.
    Next please?

    Shouldn't have given away an 8 point try, and a penalty at the end of the game.

    A ten point lead is a big lead. If your team is gifted at conceding two converted tries in the final five minutes you should probably get out of first grade.
    The eight point try probably didn't help. You're right. Shouldn't have conceded it. Probably would've helped.

    After watching James Graham over the past few years he appears to be mentally erratic. He gets very emotional and at times he loses control. I have never seen this in a player before. Is it called nospam29? One of my mates is good friends with him and he seems to be a really good person.

    The ref was correct with that one. From the rules - Section 13, 10a:

    I'll agree with you there.

    So does anyone here want to address the Josh Morris incident? You know... the penalty we didn't receive after the short kickoff?

    People, you know that high tackles are accidents too, right? The accident card is useless.

    It was a blatant miss and at a pretty crucial point in the game.
