Wow, wow, wow, wow!! I needed to give myself a few hours to cool down and settle down after that but I still don't think I fully have! Was literally shaking after full time and the neighbors would have been wondering what the hell was going on. What a win!! One of the craziest games I have ever seen! What an incredible finish!

Gotta take my hat off to the Tigers, they were absolutley brilliant tonight. Really stuck it to us and actually dominated much of the game, so much so that I was extrememly concerned at one point. But to the boys credit, they never gave up, they dug so deep and somehow pulled the game out of the bag in a remarkable comeback! While we weren't bad all game, it certainly wasn't our best effort so to win a grinding, scrappy game like that and bank the two points is the sign of a good side.

A huge final quarter of the game from all the boys with some absolutely massive, out of the box plays in there (I'll talk more about it tomorrow). And I just can't get over the finish, I just can't!! One of the most crazy finishes I have seen, such an emotional rollercoaster and I couldn't believe what happened. I still can't!!

So friggin proud of the boys to win a game like that in that fashion, truely incredible stuff!! Stoked tonight!!

I knew this would be a tough incompromising game, we got it by the skin of our teeth,clutch plays by experienced players , reynolds who again showed who he is and the much maligned gagai, who looks to not even be offered a contract, this is a travesty. Looking at the reserves, none of the heir apparent backs looked to have a clue in defence, marsters milne and moga, marsters is 15kg overweight and clueless, milne probably needs alot of work he has been out a long time, moga should know better,abysmal.

Spot on! Reserves are a big disappointment and if we are looking to build first graders from that team we are in big trouble! Give gagai a contract. Hypothetical what if sualli stayed and not gone to easts? Money? where did that go? I have really warmed to Gagai!
 

big hit!

Didnt see anything in Ilias today to fill me with confidence

From my mate who just watched reserve grade.

He also said Paulo, Moga, Marsters and Milne have no idea in defence woeful!

Apparently Sele and Mago looked good and that’s it.

Pretty hard for half to do much when he's standing behind the try line all match. Cup were dreadul, particularly the NRL contract players. It was the strongest Cup team Souths have fielded all season based on number of NRL 30 players in it and they were horrendous.
 

big hit!

That was the best finish I've seen. But this was the biggest emotional roller coaster

The 2pt field goal and Burgess' line break were monumental.

The shit that came after it with Brooks streaking away was a joke. If Tom lost the ball over the try line in-goal, then it's a play the ball restart. Maybe Sutton thought it was lost in the field of play who knows.

The reffing all night was dreadful.

Agreed, that was very strange.

Good question.
It's hard to get a gauge on the numbers, and now also need to factor in a reduction in the salary cap.
The offer revised offer was for $2.5mil/5 years,
https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...l/news-story/42d31a52fd62fd56f482116b12d7079f

and now from the last media report 2 weeks ago in the SMH, they have around $2mil left to sign 16 players for 2023 (if Reynolds is extended for 2 years)

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/th...m-to-spend-on-16-players-20210404-p57gcf.html

Looks like everyone available at the end of 2021, including Reynolds would have been moved on, and there would have been no Benji, but I'm not sure all those numbers add up. Maybe Tatola might not have been resigned as well?

I actually missed this game because of a work emergency but from all reports sounds like it was awesome and can't wait to watch the replay on Kayo. It will be interesting to see if the hysteria is justified.
