Am actually giving the sharkies a good chance of causing an upset at home tonight

 

There is a red headed version of Gallen at the Knights in the name of Joel Edwards

5yrs later they did it, despite doing their best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory on Sunday.

 

Their attack in the first half was dazzling - best I've seen in 45yrs as a long suffering supporter, but they then went into standard Sharkies 'protect our lead' mode in the 2nd half and it nearly ended in tears. Can't win premierships doing that.

 

Consistency of refing is a bigger problem now, esp the defender blocking rule re getting blocked on the shoulder cloest to the attacker and what constitutes a shoulder charge. As for forward passes, they seem to be fair game.

 

I fear the GF will be decided by the bunker not the players this season.

Sundays game outrated the A league Grand Final.

 

I'm saying nothing. Too many are blowing smoke where the sun don't shine already.

 

PS agree re the refs. Decisions drastically alter momentum. Vis a vis: Chad Townsend penalty after tackling Thaiday. Thaiday fumbles ball, falls forward into Townsend.On 4th on half way. Ridiculous decision, piggy back set. Try. Thaiday stands and shoves his legs into tackled player as they stand every tackle he makes.

 

Same vs Storm. They half and full nelson for 20 seconds every tackle they make for 35 minutes. An opponent lays a gentle palm on them 2 seconds late: penalty.

Has the nose of the Greg Norman Commodore just emerged from the shed for the Sharkies? :shock:

Just keep reminding me Oopma. I don't think I could take the disappointment of another near-miss. Still traumatised from the '78 GF.

They were crap. You don't win premierships in August though.

 

Few injuries creeping in, didn't look good for feki when he made that break that barbs scored off, if you look in the background you see him holding his groin. Never like groin injuries.

 

Gal has the old mans calf thing going too, lets hope it's just a one off rather than a week in, week out thing.

 

Fifita needs discipline, that should be sorted with s conversation.

And of course my mate who's a Dragons fan was over for dinner.

 

At least they can't get knocked out by Manly this year.

You need to take every opportunity in both hands and go for it.

I was watching the footy, not porn. Although, a win is a win is a win. :lol:

Yes, was thinking the same, or at least a top 2 finish for 2 bites of the cherry.

 

Raiders are looking good!

Anything is possible in rugby league, they took the grand final coverage to Vietnam in the late 80's, they took Origin to LA..... If you believe hard enough......

Ye have little faith.

 

You know we are still going good, they are saying Gal will make a difference if he returns and sharks fans will know, nobody has said that about Gal since pre Jeremy smith.

I'm in Melbourne today and have seen a few sharks jerseys getting around.

 

What pub do I meet you at Oompa before the game?

I hope the storm win.

 

Think the cowboys will still win the comp.

 

But happy if the broncos or storm do as well.
