    Complete domination !!!!

    Still lacked a bit in some of the finishing, but hard to be disappointed with 42-0 in the wet

    Everyone played very good, in the outstanding category i would put Perry, Kite, Matai, Watmough, Menzies, Williams and Lyon

    Lyon was sensational again at 6 today, seems to have more confidence there now and it putting on some nice plays.

    We will all hear now about how it was only because they were missing players, but hey, we were too

    There are callers already whinging about that Kiwi LOL
    but we still had 3 out as well

    great games from all the Forwards, Robbo also great

    what I was really happy about was we kept them to Zero

    and the Table also looks great
    for and against copped a huge boost

    Yep gotta love the zero

    That try mentioned was brilliant, Menzies to grab the ball for a start, and then to get his pass away, and the Lyon backflick was beautiful too

    Have a look at the 2nd Williams try, Lyon puts in a beautiful kick that Williams chases down.

    The Watmough try just then was another one worth seeing again

    O'Meley was really bludging today as well

    Great to see the boys put in a good performance, some very entertaining tries!!  We were far from clinical though, if we were we could have put on 80 easy!  Well done guys!!

    Yep, by far the most dominatant performance this year. I reckon we would still have got the money keeping them to zero with Mason, Myles and Fitsgibon onboard.

    One thing that peaves me though is how we never seem to get recognition that were missing Brett Stewart, Michael Bani, Adam Cuthbertson, Jason King and Glen Stewart for 60 minutes.

    Lyon is still a **** 5/8th.  The win was off the back of forward dominance and it papered over Lyon's weaknesses.  He CANNOT pass the ball.  Look how slow his pass is - and how about the pass for Williams' first try.  He can't pass to the right!

    In a close game that sort of display will murder us.

    Garbage Mata

    No-one is saying he is a perfect 5/8, but he had a good game today. He is showing more touches at 5/8 every opportunity he gets. He is putting more people into holes and showing more semblence of a kicking game as the year goes on as well

    And I'm telling you his passing skills as sub-standard.  fine for a centre but diabolical for an NRL 5/8th.

    He's not alone there either, it's pretty indicative of the standard of skills across the NRL to be honest. Ox's left to right passing is terrible as well, same with most halves in the comp unfortunately.

    Very few players can throw beautful 20m spiral passes to the left and to the right. Todd Carney is one who can!

    & how beautiful was Orford's trip at the 75-76th minute mark when he tried to kick the ball. Very funny.

    An excellent win all down to the forwards who dominated.  Clearly Choco's best this year and Menzies had a blinder.  Farrah was on the money last week when he described O'Meley as a 'fat old has-been'.  Their weakness around the ruck was described by me last week and Choco clearly exposed them.  Funny how Anasta's game was so piss-poor.  Good to see Bell running straighter and Williams is coming along in leaps and bounds.  Clearly a smart winger and very fast. Great win to keep them to 0.

    Did anyone else notice Lyon's spare tyre wobbling when he scored his long range try?

    Hardly. Nothing on your 22 inch truck tyre, Mata.

    "Did anyone else notice Lyon's spare tyre wobbling when he scored his long range try?"

    Is Lyon the new Monas ??
