[Resurrected] Lol @ Parra

I actually agree on that. But it does speak of the buy in of their players and team. The comparison between them and our cream puffs is chalk and cheese.

Imagine our forwards next season (Sipley, Bullemor, Keppie, Condon, Tuilagi, Croker, Boyle & others) versus ANY of these teams. We are going to be roadkill - simple as that.
Agree 😔

I can't see the Riff getting beaten tomorrow. Team is just too well drilled.

And if the Squeels think they'll be scoring tries like the two RCG scored tonight, I've got news for them. Shan't be happening.

The only positive that comes from the Worms making the GF is the possibility that I get to watch them lose. I hate them so much, I'd cheer for the Storm over them.

Penrith seem to have the same problem Manly had in the mid-1990s... they are beatable in big games.

They lost to the Storm in 2020 after losing only 2 games all year... They very nearly lost to the Bunnies in the GF last year after finishing equal first and losing only 3 games in the regular season... and this year in Origin Cleary was effectively shut down by Queensland.

I'm not too sure Penrith will win this year.

Agree. It definitely has the makings of the same GF pattern: Lose, Win, Lose. Despite being the best team by far of those 3 years.

How's that for a difference in character. Mitchell Moses missed the birth of his daughter FFS, to take the field with his team mates.

Our blokes wouldn't wear rainbows on the jerseys.

****ing pathetic.
You miss your daughter's birth to play a game of footy,you are a piece of ****,it says a lot about a person and their character,and their priorities.
Sounds a lot like the AFL splitting up families as the game is more important,if that is what you are saying?

I guess Parra can go LOL Manly.

Although they should get thrashed by Rif or Souths.
I think every team outside of Tigers can [email protected] at the moment. What’s worse is that I find it hard to keep up the traditional hate I have for otter clubs because I hated my team more than every other club this year, and I am not exaggerating.

So my hate for other clubs is taking time off until these maggots that play in Manly colours show some heart for their jerseys.

When I watch a game of footy now I just want to see an entertaining game, and I care less about what team it is. So on that note I’m hoping South’s play Parra in the grand final. Regardless of my traditional dislike for both teams at least the game will be watchable.

Last night too we saw how the team that played last week had the momentum and beat the team that had had a rest (and only won their last game in extra time via a FG).

Parramatta were far more impressive vs Canberra than the Stockmen were against the Narks.

If Penrith win tonight, that week off becomes really important next week. Think 2013.

If Souths win, Parramatta are right in it. Latrell could be the difference.

Got to give parramatta credit. They’ve been playing very consistent football for the past couple of months. Which to be fair, is unlike them but they’ve continued to get it done.
I think if Penrith win tonight, parramatta are a huge chance. They’ve showed over the past couple of seasons, they can match it, head to head with Penrith. However if Souths win, I’d favor Souths to win the GF. Souths are the 1 team that worry parramatta.

Eels have been building for the past few years. Compared with other squads, they don't have a superstar but instead rely on an abundance of power forwards. Gutho and Moses are excellent players but not in the very top echelon. Credit to Arthur for developing his side in that slightly different way. Matterson has added a lot this year with his offloads and RCG has finally recaptured his best form after (I think) a couple of broken jaws which must be a massive psychological blow for a prop.

If they are good enough to win next week then fair enough, they'll be worthy premiers*.

*Unless it is on the back of more forward passes or dodgy officiating @:mad:

I can’t see any team but Penrith winning… been saying it all year, unless half the team gets busted or cops suspensions tonight the result has been a forgone conclusion since the start of the season…

I’m going for the panthers but wouldn’t be disappointed to see the eels get up next week… if only for gutherson, the bloke so many people on here seem to bag out constantly because MANLY did the wrong thing by him, captains his team to their first grandfinal win in over 30 years while manly can’t even make the 8 ..

We’re just jealous , that’s all.

But I do think he goes on a bit at times and the whole “ King Gutho “ thing is ****ing ridiculous.

But the kid can play.

Watching Shaun Lane, really speaks volumes about Scott Fulton, and our longer term recruiters. Same goes for Verrills, Koroisou, Gutherson, JWH, Hiku, Hynes, and many, many others.

As long as we have Boyle, Condon, Tuilagi and Bullemor though hahaha

What has Shaun Lane got to do with Scott Fulton?
Lane left in disgust with the treatment of Hastings by Twent. He did not want to play under Twent, so left.

Scott Fulton has been the recruiter through both regimes. But maybe he was off crook that day ?
