    I think everyone's missed a huge point about the game now that i think about it - the side completely detained Slater.  He didn't get involved much until the second half and still did hardly anything, plus he didn't score a try.  To me that's pretty big!

    I thought watmough was best on field. His attack is a quiet litually a midday shadow of last year, but his defense was solid and he was all over the park, with two charge downs and some very good inside defense to stop the Cronk to slater back inside pass.

    Other than that, they all played really well with the exception of King who i thought was a bit ordinary. T-Rex did some good runs, Matai is going aweomse and we will have the best 5/8th (foran) in 3 years in our team.

    charge downs can be dangerous the first was good the second put Melbourne in very good field position

    I'm with you eggson. At the end of the match I said Hallelujah, Slater didn't score against us. Besides the 08 grand final he seems to have scored every time we play them.

    Watched the game on Fox.  Spent most of the first half cheering on the boys and yelling at the TV.

    The second half was an awesome display of defence while Melbourne threw everything at us.

    When the final whistle blew I just had to play EagleRock on my stereo.  Neighboures probably not impressed but who cares.

    The bloke across the road from me always gets out with his Melbourne jumper on and cuts the grass after they win.  Haven't seen him for two weeks. 

    Had to watch the replay this morning to see if I missed anything as I was in a pleasant scotch fuelled state during the game last night. :D
