(updated across the weekend)
Good start from Barba, hope he can keep it up for the year.
Poor old Salford got a right royal plonking
Poor old Dobbins got a right royal plonking too.
Seems like a bit of a blast from the past or normal service resuming with the big boys all posting impressive wins.
Must be the year of the Plonkers
Could we see two teams promoted from the Super 8s this season?
Jack Walker is a amazing talent for a 18 year old
those try savers were amazing i think he had 4 all up and the commentators didnt relize how big he was when atkins jumped in the air if walker wasnt there to bump him into another direction they would be talking about how good the try was
Catalans off to a flying start. Positive signs. Another year of progress and they could have a real crack at the Championship Shield in 2019.

Going to be a long season for us (again!)
I honestly don't think the round one scores will prove much in the end, Cas for example were so underdone it was incredible, they could barely string a pass together.
Having said that Daryl Powell has made some big blunders which i didn't expect from such a top coach, Ben Roberts at fullback is a disaster.
Catalans backline didn’t feature any French players
Probably best to just ignore everything Catalans related until they remove their coach.
KR made a bit of a statement this morning. Didn't get the win but were right in there against a Leeds team who seemed to have an eye on next week. Conceded a late try which could have been disallowed for obstruction and then were disallowed one themselves for the same offence. Keinhorst 3 very good tries was the difference, and Ryan Hall matching last week's big play looks set for a big season.
Leeds will want to improve big time to beat the Storm if they come ready to play.
Hull KR have shown they won't be easy-beats, certainly didn't look like a Championship side today. Maybe Sheens has some coaching in him yet.
Leeds 20 - Hull KR 11
Forgot to post the squads in here this week oops: http://leagueunlimited.com/news/leagueunlimited-sl-teams-2018-round-2/
Other game this morning - Huddersfield def Warrington 20-6.
Also - ongoing scores and scorers all season, incl crowds etc - http://bit.ly/2018SLDraw - all times AET (NSW/VIC)
Warrington's results so far are entirely predictable with the chinless wonder as coach
Can someone explain why on earth huddersfield played warrington on a thursday night when it wasn't even a sky game?
Huddersfield Town are playing at home on Sunday at noon, the groundsman there requires 48 hours to change the pitch markings and prepare the surface etc between RL and soccer so they had no choice but to play on Thursday. Not sure why they didn't just request that the RFL reverse the home and away fixtures, I guess they didn't see it as an issue.
